I was doing some tweeking and found an article stating Phebe Ann (Bailey) Gates died 1898 in Springfield MA, dau of Timothy and Phebe (Woodward) Bailey....
BUT then it added survived by her brother in this city E.C. Bailey....I had no EC that was a son of Timothy and Phebe Bailey.
This is what I have discovered and if anyone can help with more info on EC I would be very greatful!
