Two adorable brothers wearing large bow ties pose for their portrait for photographer S. B. Terry at his studio in Winona, Mississippi. The boys are identified in an inscription on the reverse of the cabinet card. The older boy is Walter Boyce Bailey (1892-?) and the younger lad is John Wendell Bailey (1895-1967). The 1910 US census finds Walter (age 18) and John (age 14) living with their parents, Thomas J. and Emma M. Bailey. Also in residence was two sisters, a brother, two boarders, and a servant (cook). Thomas Bailey held a Doctorate of Divinity (Baptist). The family was living in Jackson, Mississippi. The 1920 US census found Walter living in a Denver rooming house. He was married and worked as a cashier for a machine manufacturing company. The 1930 US census reveals that he was still living in Denver and he was living with his wife Louise and two daughters and a son. He was employed with a tire company in some capacity relating to buses and trucks. The 1940 US census states that he was still in Denver with his family but was working as a tax agent. Research reveals that unlike his brother, John Bailey remained in Mississippi. He graduated from Mississippi State University and worked as a college professor. The 1940 US census reports that he was married to Lani Lloyd Bailey and they had three children residing at home. He is buried at the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Starkville, Mississippi.
