Eliza Ellen Presley Bailey – 1888-1930, metal marker. Eliza Ellen Bailey, 40, gave birth to her seventh child, son David Marshall Bailey, on 10 Dec 1930 and died the next day in Mercy hospital. Infant son David died in June 1931, six months after his mother’s death, and his brother Joseph W. Bailey Jr., 4, died the next month, in July 1931, after being struck by a car. Mrs. Bailey was born in Scioto County, Ohio, a daughter of Howard and Lettie Presley and spent most of her life in Portsmouth, Ohio. She was a member of the New Boston Christian Church. She was survived by her husband Joseph W. Bailey Sr.; six children, Nellie, Robert, Albert, Virginia, Joseph W. Jr., and David; a brother, John Presley of Columbus, Ohio; and three sisters, Mary Locher of New Boston, Ohio, Laura Schomberg and Hattie Neal of Hicksville, Ohio. Her son David’s obituary lists another child, Ruth, who preceded him in death. Services for Mrs. Bailey were held from the Emrick funeral home with Walter Bagley officiating. NOTE: A funeral notice says that interment was in Greenlawn cemetery. However, family members say she was buried in the Milldale Cemetery and a 1997 cemetery inventory supports that. Sources: 1. 1997 inventory by Wayne Campbell, Brenda Campbell and Richard Underwood, available at the Portsmouth Public Library. Mrs. Bailey's burial site is No. 59 on the map included in the inventory. 2. Family members. 3. Obituaries, The Portsmouth Times, 11 Dec 1930, Page 17, and 12 Dec 1930, Page 25.
