Siam Cemetery
Taylor County, Iowa
Uploaded 9/2/2012

Inscription: Joseph C. Son of J. B. & S. Bailie Died July 24, 1871 Aged 1 y 8 m 21 d
Although the stone has the inscription given above and in the photo this may be the headstone for William E. Bailie, brother of Joseph. William E. Bailie was born in 1862 in Bureau Co., Illinois and died April 28, 1866 in Siam, Taylor Co., Iowa. Presumably due to an error by the engraver the inscriptions are the same but they are separate burials and it is known that there were two children named Joseph and William, sons of Joseph Bigger Bailie and Sarah Umbarger, who died young and only a few years apart.

Two boy babies had died. . . . The two boys in the family were William and Joseph." Source courtesy of Pat O'Dell.
