Birdie Alma Bailey
27 (Research):
1910 Census:
I have to wonder who was actually living in this hh. Lloyd, David, Grace and Fonda are all listed as living with Birdie and Arthur in Cheyenne but
Grace and Fonda are also enumerated with Ella in Greeley.
David is very likely in Nebraska since he is enumerated there with the Morgan hh. Lula Morgan in the Nebraska census is very likely Lula McGee and the daughter of Delia Jackson McGee. Lula would be a first cousin to David's mother, and a first cousin once removed to David.
-L. Peters

Fonda is listed as male on this census, female on all others. 
Birdie Alma Bailey
28 Arliss Monk: "Birdie Bailey, eldest daughter of James M. and Mary Ellen ( Jackson) Bailey, presents a few problems in the public records where she is found. It is quite certain that she was the mother of four children named Lloyd, David, Grace and Fonda. Two marriages are evident, though there is a possibility there were four."

"She is first found in Weld County in the 1880 census with her parents and one sister. The only record located before the 1900 census is of a marriage, Birdie Flint Bailey or Birdie Bailey Flint to Gerrie Swendt in Delta County, Colorado, about April 1894. Nothing further was learned of Gerrie, But a Gary Swendt is in the same neighborhood of others in Bellingham, WA in the 1990s."

"It is possible that Birdie married a man named Flint if Lloyd is actually her son, and the father may be related to Birdie's brother-in-law, Edward Flint. Much information may be located in Laramie County WY where Birdie was last known living and where her daughters may have married." (June 2008)

"On Monday of last week Mr. James M. Bailey, of Evans, was stricken with paralysis, and remained unconcious most of the time until Friday night when he died. Mr Bailey was an old-timer, and came to Colorado in 1861, from Missouri. For several years he freighted across the plains, but has lived in Evans for more than twenty years, and was highly esteemed. The funeral was conducted by the Masonic fraternity, he having been a charter member of Occidental Lodge No. 20, of Greeley, and was followed to the grave by a large number of the brethren. The services were held at the church in Evans, on Sunday at 10:30a.m., the Rev. A.H. Lucas officiating. The church was crowded, many persons being unable to gain admission. The impressive service from the Masonic ritual was read at the grave. Mr. Bailey leaves a wife and three children to mourn his loss. He was fifty-eight years old."
