Thank you for the information - a few of the pieces are fitting better now. I had heard of Pearl BAGLEY, but I couldn't connect her with anyone until now.
Alice A. STAFFORD was James BAGLEY's second wife.
His first, Eliza Jane ANDERSON died during, or from complications of childbirth, on 16 APR in Bellwood, Butler, NE. James and Eliza had five children - Effie Jane, William Wesley, Thomas Samuel, George Ainsworth and Eliza, the baby, who also died in July of 1880. Life was tough on the plains.
Bagley remarried again - apparently to a Lucinda OWENS, but I have zero information on her.
