About 35 guests attended; Betty Fraser (later the well-known Canadian sculptor Elizabeth Williamson) was maid of honor, and Al Fraser (unrelated) was best man. Edith described the particulars in a letter shortly before the wedding:
     Here are a few things about the wedding & reception. I am wearing a blue afternoon dress, street-length, navy hat & shoes, and a corsage. My bridesmaid, Betty Fraser, is wearing pale pink, a black hat & shoes and a corsage of blue flowers. Bro. Parkin of Toronto is going to marry us. A friend of mine with a grand soprano voice is going to sing "O Promise Me." One of our brethren, who is an excellent amateur photographer is doing the picture taking. Then the reception will begin at approximately four. The wedding is at three sharp. The menu consists of a jellied salad, thin bread & butter, tea & coffee, cookies, relish, (wrong order, as you'll see) and wedding cake & punch. You and two other girls will serve. There will be two ladies pouring, one tea & one coffee, a Mrs. Smith and Sister Laird. There will be a woman in the kitchen, making tea & coffee, unmoulding salads, cutting cake, washing cups & saucers, & so forth, and a neighbor girl friend helping her & keeping connection between the kitchen & table. It is a buffet service, of course.

The Ottawa Journal gave this description:
Gladioli in the pastel tones with bankings of greenery were used to adorn the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Woodley, 1 Ridgeway avenue, for the wedding on Saturday afternoon at three o'clock of their daughter, Miss Edith Bertha, to Howard L., son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard T. Bailey, of Nutley, N.J.

Rev. J. Richmond Craid performed the ceremony. Mrs. W. B. Armstrong played the wedding music and durng the signing of the register Mrs. R. S. Simpson sang sweetly, "O Promise Me".

The bride was given in marriage by her father and was attended by Miss Betty Fraser, as bridesmaid. Mr. A. A. Foster was best man.

The bride wore and street length costume of mist blue cravat crepe with short sleeves. She wore a navy blue hat and navy blue accessories and a corsage bouquet of Butterfly and Johanna Hill roses.

The bridesmaid was in pale pink with a black hat and black acessories. She wore a corsage bouquet of cornflowers.

Following a reception, Mr. and Mrs. Bailey left on a motor trip to Quebec. For travelling the bride wore a top coat of tweed over her costume.

Out-of-town guests were, Mr. and Mrs. Howard T. Bailey, Misses Muriel, Peggy and Violet Bailey, of Nutley, N.J., and Miss Constnace Turner, of Kingston.


     Howard and Edith became engaged while Edith was visiting the 1939 World's Fair, but a month after her return to Ottawa she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She tried to break off the engagement, convinced that Howard's family would not want him marrying a "tubercular woman" and that they would undoubtedly have worries about possible children of the union. Howard refused (with encouragement from his family), and each month he drove from New Jersey to Ottawa to visit her in the sanitorium. Edith was released from the hospital in May, 1940, and the wedding was planned for August. A trousseua tea was held 22 August 1940, and a marriage license (# KK 6608, probably issued in Ottawa) was obtained. Because of her TB, Edith was not allowed in the U.S. until 1946 (when Howard returned from the war), so the couple planned to live in Canada. Following the wedding and a honeymoon at the Woodley family cottage at Blue Sea Lake in Quebec, Howard returned home to arrange his affairs and find employment in Canada. Presumeably Edith lived with her parents during the interim. He worked at Westinghouse in Newark, NJ, until he was hired as quartermaster for the RAF flying school in Chatham, New Brunswick, and in May, 1941, Howard emigrated to Canada and the couple moved to Chatham. In the summer of 1942 the school moved to Neepawa, Manitoba, and Howard and Edith moved there. In late 1943, Howard joined the U.S. Army and left for basic training. Edith returned to Ottawa to stay with her parents until the war was over, and during that time she took brief substitute teaching jobs.34,35,36,37,38,39,40,32,11,26,41,42,43,44,45

ChartsEdith Woodley Bailey Family Tree
Last Edited3 Jul 2016
Birth*Edith Bertha Woodley was born on 1 November 1913 at home at 227 Arlington Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, with a midwife in attendance. William Woodley told the story that when Edith was born, he walked down to accompany the midwife to the house. On the way back, they passed a brickyard and he stooped to pick up a brick to take along, telling the midwife that the first child had been a girl, and if this was, he was going to throw the brick at her (kidding, of course.) In fact, the brick was for use as a hot water bottle during the birthing.3,8,9,11 
(with Parents) ResidenceIn 1914, Edith Bertha Woodley was living at 227 Arlington Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in the household of her parents, William Woodley and Mary Louisa Steele.12

(with Parents) Residence1916, Edith Bertha Woodley was living at 227 Arlington Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in the household of her parents, William Woodley and Mary Louisa Steele.14 
(with Parents) ResidenceOn 1 October 1920, Edith Bertha Woodley was living at Quyon, Quebec, Canada, in the household of her parents, William Woodley and Mary Louisa Steele.10,15,16 
(Witness) Psgr ListShe was found on a passenger list with Mary Louisa Steele on 11 October 1920 arriving at Liverpool, Merseyside, England, with her mother and siblings on the ship Melita, for a visit with the Woodleys and Steeles in England.9 
(Witness) Psgr ListShe was found on a passenger list with Mary Louisa Steele on 10 June 1921 arriving at Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, with her mother and siblings on the ship Metagama. They were coming home from their visit with the Woodleys and Steeles in England.8 
Ed/Primary*She attended the Crichton Street Public School, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, through grade 7, which at the time was the last year of elementary school. I am unclear whether she attended this school before the family lived briefly in Quyon, but certainly she did after, through about 1928.16 
(with Parents) Residence1922, Edith Bertha Woodley was living at 454 Lisgar Street, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, in the household of her parents, William Woodley and Mary Louisa Steele.16,17 
NoteIn April 1927, she was awarded a prize by the Ontario Safety League for an essay on "What My School is Doing for Highway Safety".18 
Ed/Second*Between 1928 and 1934, Edith Bertha Woodley attended high school in Ottawa at Lisgar Collegiate [aka Ottawa Collegiate Institute], where she was a rifle champion for three years and knew the actor Lorne Greene from the TV show Bonanza. She served as secretary of the Student Council for one or two years. After she won the rifle championship, her father bought her her own .22 caliber rifle, which is in my possession. In 1932, she was mentioned in the Ottawa Journal for her work as chair of the Lisgar Historical Society's drama committee and for her co-direction of their production of the play Laura Secord.19,20,16,21 
BaptismShe was baptized into the Ottawa Christadelphian Ecclesia at her parents' home on 24 November 1929 at 1 Ridgeway Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and stayed in the Christadelphian faith her whole life. Her baptism was performed by Bro. A. S. Laird of the Ottawa ecclesia. She was very active in the Ottawa (Canada) and Newark, South Orange, Echo Lake, and Garfield (all NJ) ecclesias. Until she was in her 80s, she belonged to amended ecclesias, but she and Howard worked actively towards the reuninification of the amended and unamended Christadelphian groups, attending many functions at the Garfield (NJ) ecclesia and Schooley's Mountain (NJ) Bible Camp and various amended and unamended Bible schools around the U.S. and Canada. When Edith married Sam DiLiberto in 1997, she changed her membership to Garfield (unamended) and was already a familiar face there.22,1,23 
NoteIn March 1932 she won first place in her class at Lisgar Collegiate Instute in the Fisher Essay Competition on Civics.24 
IllnessShe had an appendectomy in 1932.25 
NoteIn the Fall of 1932, Edith Bertha Woodley chaired the Drama Committee of the Lisgar Collegiate Historical Society, and in December of that year she co-directed a production of Laura Secord.26 
Ed/CollegeShe attended college between 1934 and 1935 at Ottawa Normal School [Teachers College], Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. (Normal schools provided instruction in the norms, or standard practices, of teaching.) In May, 1934, her art work was shown at 14th Annual Exhibition of the Ottawa Art Association, with her name listed in the Ottawa Journal among those who "show good work". In July, 1935, she passed her examinations and received her interim first-class certificate. Examination results were published in the Ottawa Journal.27,20,16,28,29 
Ed/CollegeIn the summer of 1935 she attended summer coursework in elementary art at Toronto, Ontario, Canada.20 
Ed/CollegeBetween 1936 and 1937, Edith Bertha Woodley attended college at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. This was probably during summer sessions.30 
Ed/College*She took two classes between July 1936 and August 1936 at Columbia University, New York City, New York County, New York.31,16 
Note*She and Howard Louis Bailey first met circa July 1936 at the Hill Street Christadelphian Ecclesia, Newark, Essex County, New Jersey, while Edith was attending summer classes at Columbia University.32 
Occupation*Between September 1936 and 1939, Edith Bertha Woodley was an art teacher at Hopewell Avenue Public School, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In the spring of 1937 she represented her school at the annual meeting of the Ontario Educational Association in Toronto. She was made permanent in May, 1938, after serving a satisfactory probation period. It was about a half-hour by trolley, and Edith took her lunch each day. It was near the end of her third year there that she was diagnosed with tuberculosis.16,33,34 
Ed/CollegeShe attended summer coursework for Supervisor in Art certification between 5 July 1937 and 6 August 1937 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada.20

Illness*She was ill with tuberculosis between 1939 and 1940 at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She was diagnosed in the spring of 1939 and hospitalized in the sanitorium from June, 1939, until May, 1940. The first months were spent completely bedbound with a medically-induced pneumothorax (her affected lung was collapsed for complete rest). She was allowed to go home for four days at Christmas, the first time she had been allowed out for a visit, and she was released in May, 1940. A number of friends she made on the ward died while she was there. Because of an excellent insurance policy she had, Edith received a stipend while she was sick. She doesn't remember who paid for the hospitalization, although since it was required by public health laws she thinks it was probably paid by the government.36,16,25 
NoteEdith's resignation from the Ottawa Public Schools was accepted effective 30 June 1940.37 
NoteTwo bridal showers were held for Edith before she and Howard were married. On August 10th, a miscellaneous shower was hosted by Elizabeth Fraser. Mrs. F. G. Semple presided at the tea table, assisted by Naomi Pelletier and Gertrude Burke. Later in the month, Edith's mother Mary Louisa Steele hosted a shower at which Mrs. W. B. Armstrong and Mrs. R. Fioeld presided at the tea table; their assistants were Betty Fraser, Phyllis Butlin, and Naomi Pelletier.38,39 
Marriage*She married Howard Louis Bailey, son of Howard Tucker Bailey and Margaret Chitty, on 31 August 1940 at the home of Edith's parents at 1 Ridgeway Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. About 35 guests attended; Betty Fraser (later the well-known Canadian sculptor Elizabeth Williamson) was maid of honor, and Al Fraser (unrelated) was best man. Edith described the particulars in a letter shortly before the wedding:
     Here are a few things about the wedding & reception. I am wearing a blue afternoon dress, street-length, navy hat & shoes, and a corsage. My bridesmaid, Betty Fraser, is wearing pale pink, a black hat & shoes and a corsage of blue flowers. Bro. Parkin of Toronto is going to marry us. A friend of mine with a grand soprano voice is going to sing "O Promise Me." One of our brethren, who is an excellent amateur photographer is doing the picture taking. Then the reception will begin at approximately four. The wedding is at three sharp. The menu consists of a jellied salad, thin bread & butter, tea & coffee, cookies, relish, (wrong order, as you'll see) and wedding cake & punch. You and two other girls will serve. There will be two ladies pouring, one tea & one coffee, a Mrs. Smith and Sister Laird. There will be a woman in the kitchen, making tea & coffee, unmoulding salads, cutting cake, washing cups & saucers, & so forth, and a neighbor girl friend helping her & keeping connection between the kitchen & table. It is a buffet service, of course.

The Ottawa Journal gave this description:
Gladioli in the pastel tones with bankings of greenery were used to adorn the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Woodley, 1 Ridgeway avenue, for the wedding on Saturday afternoon at three o'clock of their daughter, Miss Edith Bertha, to Howard L., son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard T. Bailey, of Nutley, N.J.

Rev. J. Richmond Craid performed the ceremony. Mrs. W. B. Armstrong played the wedding music and durng the signing of the register Mrs. R. S. Simpson sang sweetly, "O Promise Me".

The bride was given in marriage by her father and was attended by Miss Betty Fraser, as bridesmaid. Mr. A. A. Foster was best man.

The bride wore and street length costume of mist blue cravat crepe with short sleeves. She wore a navy blue hat and navy blue accessories and a corsage bouquet of Butterfly and Johanna Hill roses.

The bridesmaid was in pale pink with a black hat and black acessories. She wore a corsage bouquet of cornflowers.

Following a reception, Mr. and Mrs. Bailey left on a motor trip to Quebec. For travelling the bride wore a top coat of tweed over her costume.

Out-of-town guests were, Mr. and Mrs. Howard T. Bailey, Misses Muriel, Peggy and Violet Bailey, of Nutley, N.J., and Miss Constnace Turner, of Kingston.


     Howard and Edith became engaged while Edith was visiting the 1939 World's Fair, but a month after her return to Ottawa she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She tried to break off the engagement, convinced that Howard's family would not want him marrying a "tubercular woman" and that they would undoubtedly have worries about possible children of the union. Howard refused (with encouragement from his family), and each month he drove from New Jersey to Ottawa to visit her in the sanitorium. Edith was released from the hospital in May, 1940, and the wedding was planned for August. A trousseua tea was held 22 August 1940, and a marriage license (# KK 6608, probably issued in Ottawa) was obtained. Because of her TB, Edith was not allowed in the U.S. until 1946 (when Howard returned from the war), so the couple planned to live in Canada. Following the wedding and a honeymoon at the Woodley family cottage at Blue Sea Lake in Quebec, Howard returned home to arrange his affairs and find employment in Canada. Presumeably Edith lived with her parents during the interim. He worked at Westinghouse in Newark, NJ, until he was hired as quartermaster for the RAF flying school in Chatham, New Brunswick, and in May, 1941, Howard emigrated to Canada and the couple moved to Chatham. In the summer of 1942 the school moved to Neepawa, Manitoba, and Howard and Edith moved there. In late 1943, Howard joined the U.S. Army and left for basic training. Edith returned to Ottawa to stay with her parents until the war was over, and during that time she took brief substitute teaching jobs.5,4,40,36,41,42,43,44,45,32,16,11,46,47,48

ObituaryWilliam's obituary from at Moretonhampstead, Devon, England, reads:
Moretonhampstead's Grand Old Man
The funeral took place on Saturday at St. Andrew’s Parish Churchyard of William Stanleick of Cross St. Moretonhampstead who passed away on October 29th. The deceased, who celebrated his 90th. [sic] birthday only a few weeks ago and received many congratulatory messages was the oldest male inhabitant of the town. He was a jovial and popular figure, known by everybody, having resided there for over 60 years. In his younger days he was a keen horseman, employed by Mr. Sunger of Torquay, and was a frequent follower of the hounds whilst in his employ. Before his retirement he was a foreman platelayer and came to Moreton on the first train which arrived at the town on the completion of the branch line from Newton Abbot and he helped in it’s [sic] construction. For over 20 years he was Chairman of the Moreton Rational Friendly Society and was for some years caretaker of the local branch of Lloyds Bank until the death of his wife. At the time of his death he was residing with his daughters. The service was held in the Congregational Church of which the deceased had been a member for many years and was conducted by Mr. S. B. Angel, resident Minister, who gave an eloquent address. There was a large number of friends and sympathisers [sic] present. The service was choral; Mrs. Radcliffe presiding at the organ. The hymns sung were Rock of Ages, Now the Labourers [sic] Task is O’er and O Rest in the Lord.
The chief mourners were Mesdames Clay, Sharland, Peacey, Wilkins, Misses A. and F. Stanleick (daughters); Messrs. W. Clay, W. Sharland, A. Peacey and R. Wilkins (sons in law); Mrs. E. Stanleick (daughter in law); Mr. E. R. Stanleick (grandson); Misses P. Woodley, B. Woodley and May Stanleick (nieces).15
 
Religion*He was a member of the Congregational Church.15 
OccupationHe was described in his obituary as a foreman railway platelayer. [The term "platelayer" is the British name for the men who laid and maintained the railway tracks in Britain, right from the beginning of railways in the early 19th century. The word actually predates railways, as it was derived from the very old "plateways" which existed hundreds of years ago, mainly for moving coal. Info from http://www.vaxxine.com/platelayers/]15 
OccupationHe was a labourer.12

(Witness) Census1875StateSimUSHe appeared on the 1875 State Census of Marlborough, Ulster County, New York, in the household of James W. Bailey and Elizabeth Bloomer, his grandparents. His father and brothers James Edgar and Louis Smith were also living in the family.14 
(Witness) Census1880FedUSHe appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Marlborough, Ulster County, New York, in the household of James W. Bailey and Elizabeth Bloomer, his grandparents. His father and his brother James Edgar were also living in the family. His brother William was living with their maternal grandparents in town, and his brother Louis had been adopted by their uncle (Charles' brother) Walter Millard Bailey and his wife Rosetta, living in New York City.3,16 
Marriage*He married Marion N. Potter, daughter of Nathaniel Potter and Paulina (?), on 25 October 1885.17,18,15,6 
Birth of DaughterHis daughter Ida Nathalie Bailey was born on 8 August 1887 at New York.4,15,5,6,19 
Birth of DaughterHis daughter Frances Bailey was born in October 1888 at New York.4 
Residence*Two addresses were given for Nathaniel Bailey at the time of his grandmother Rosetta Parmalee's probate: (1) 181 Hudson St., NYC; (2) Hoboken, NJ. Wherever he and Marion were living, their daughters Ida Nathalie Bailey and Frances Bailey were probably living with them.13

Birth of DaughterHis daughter Mary Bailey was born in July 1893 at New Jersey.4,15 
ResidenceHe and Marion N. Potter lived on 14 December 1893 at 78 7th Street, Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey. Their children Frances, Ida Nathalie and Mary lived with them.13,21 
(Witness) ProbateHe was named as a grandson and possible heir in the probate of the estate of William L. Parmalee between 1893 and 1895 at Ulster County, New York.21 
(Witness) NoteOn 15 January 1894, Nathaniel Irving Bailey was named as a defendent in a complaint filed against the heirs of William L. Parmalee in the Supreme Court of New York. See William L. Parmalee's entry for excerpts from the complaint.17 
Birth of DaughterHis daughter Margaret Bailey was born in December 1897 at New Jersey.4,15,5 
Birth of SonHis son Irving N. Bailey was born on 5 October 1899 at New Jersey.4,15,5,6,22,23 
Occupation*He was an engineer on 7 June 1900.4 
Census1900FedUS*He and Marion N. Potter appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, at 218 Seventh Avenue, enumerated 7 June 1900. Their children Ida Nathalie, Margaret, Frances, Mary and Irving N. were listed as living with them, as were Marion's father and stepmother, Nathaniel Potter and Mary A. (?)4 
OccupationHe was a washer in a laundry on 15 April 1910.15 
Name Variation As of 15 April 1910, Nathaniel Irving Bailey was also known as Nathan E. Bailey.15 
Census1910FedUS*He and Marion N. Potter appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, at 100 Oakland Avenue, enumerated 20 April 1910. Their children Ida Nathalie, Mary, Margaret and Irving N. were listed as living with them. Although there is little doubt this is the correct family, many of the details given in the enumeration appear to be inaccurate. In particular, while it was reported in 1900 that Marion had given birth to five children, all living at that time, in 1910 it was reported that she had given birth to eleven children, five of whom were still living. This seems unlikely, although there is a mention in Bailey family notes that there may have been a son William for whom I have found no evidence.15,9 
(Widower) DeathHe became a widower when Marion N. Potter died between 1911 and 1919.5,6 
Census1920FedUS*He appeared on the 1920 Federal Census of Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, at 130 St. Paul's Avenue, enumerated 12 January 1920.

Thomas, who was the godchild of either Nathaniel himself or of John Crane.5 
OccupationHe was a city laborer on 12 January 1920.5 
OccupationHe was a city laborer on 1 April 1930.6

Birth*Howard Tucker Bailey was born on 10 May 1889 at 625 Union Street, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York.1,2,16,4,5,6,7,8,17,14,15 
(with Parents) ResidenceOn 10 February 1890, Howard Tucker Bailey was probably living at 191 High Street, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, in the household of his parents, William Augustus Parmalee Bailey and Margaret Martin.18 
(with Parents) Census1892StateSimUSHe appeared on the 1892 State Census of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, in the household of his parents, William Augustus Parmalee Bailey and Margaret Martin.4 
Census1900FedUS*He and his brother Clarence William Bailey appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, at the Orphan Asylum Society of the City of Brooklyn, 1423-1435 Atlantic Avenue, enumerated 2 June 1900.5 
EmploymentHe was employed by H. A. Knauber, Optician, between 1904 and 1905 at 21 Bond Street, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York.19 
Religion*1905 Howard Tucker Bailey was a member of the Bushwick Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church, 1110 Bushwick Avenue, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York.20 
Employment*He was employed at Tiffany & Company, 820 Highland Avenue, Forest Hill, Newark, Essex County, New Jersey, between 1905 and 1950. He was hired in 1905 as an apprentice silversmith and promoted to journeyman silversmith in 1910. His handwritten record of employment states that he was hired as an apprentice 26 June 1905 and served (as an apprentice?) until 26 June 1910, which may be when he was made journeyman. In the 1910 census, he was shown as a silversmith working in a silver shop, and on the certificate of his marriage to Margaret Chitty (1912) he is identified as a silversmith. Although he mentions being rehired by Tiffany's in 1919, he appears to have worked there for most if not all of the years between 1905-1950 and in 1939 was paid $1100 for 52 weeks. His own notes made in 1950 estimate his work history with them to be 41 years. Read Howard's diary of working at Tiffany's

Two surviving letters of recommendation for Howard, written at the time he applied to Tiffany's, were as follows:
June 17, 1905 - Frank L. Brown, Supt. of Bushwick Avenue Methodist Episcopal Sunday School, 1110 Bushwick Ave. [and Madison St.], Brooklyn, NY, wrote a letter of recommendation to Tiffany's for Howard and mentions that he has been a member of our S.S. and his employers speak well of his fidelity and the character of his work.
June 17, 1905 - H. A. Knauber, Optician at 21 Bond St., Brooklyn, NY, wrote Howard a letter of recommendation, stating that he had worked there for about 1 year. On November 19, 1906, Knauber wrote Howard saying that if he wasn't currently employed he would like Howard to call.21,22,23,24,6,25,26,27,28,11,12,13,8,17,14

Residence (Range)*Between 16 May 1911 and 8 May 1912, Howard Tucker Bailey lived at 76 Jane Street, New York City, New York County, New York.25,42 
Marriage*He married Margaret Chitty, daughter of William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey, on 8 May 1912 at 81 Jane Street, New York City, New York County, New York. This was the home of Howard's grandfather Charles Augustus Bailey and stepgrandmother Frances Calista Bailey.

He was a quiet and retiring man, hardworking, with a love of family, church and garden. He apparently had a speech impediment which made him self-conscious and because of which he would write out exhortations for son Howard to give at church and which may explain why he is not shown as a presiding brother in ecclesial records. There is some family mention of a sister named Laura, but that remains unconfirmed.88,89,90

Their children Muriel Gertrude, Margaret Elizabeth and Violet May lived with them Son Howard lived with them from the time of his wedding until he emigrated to Canada in May, 1941, and again after his discharge from the Army in 1946. He and Edith Woodley Bailey lived there from the time she immigrated (1946) until they purchased their first home in 1947. Daughters Muriel, Margaret and Violet would have been living there part of this time period, probably until the dates of their weddings.57,58,59,60,61,17,18,19 
(Witness) Residence (Range)From September, 1950, until the family moved to West Caldwell in 1957, Margaret Chitty lived in the household of Howard Louis Bailey and Edith Bertha Woodley at 5 Franklin Avenue, Montclair, Essex County, New Jersey, her son and daughter-in-law.

On January 12th doctors performed a left hemicolectomy and proximal transverse colostomy. Edith Woodley Bailey remembers that after that Margaret never smiled, and she died on March 1st. The family was furious with the doctors for not being more honest with them about how close to death Margaret really was. They were convinced that Margaret had been aware on some level of what doctors actually said about her condition while she was under anesthesia and that she gave up, never believing their encouraging words after that.64 
Death*She died on 1 March 1971 at St. Michael's Medical Center, Newark, Essex County, New Jersey, at age 77 of colon cancer, pulmonary emboli, congestion, and edema. The cancer was an annular carcinoma of the distal sigmoid, wtih rectal metastasis.68,9,69,10

Note*She was described by her son, Howard Louis Bailey, as a wonderful mother and excellent cook. She was a faithful member of the Hill Street, then South Orange, then Echo Lake Christdelphian ecclesias. Edith Woodley Bailey said Margaret was a cheerful, friendly, and warm person. Although in photos she's usually seen as stern, that was often the style of the times. She was primarily a homemaker, although she was trained as bookbinder. It is reported she was called "Pickles" at her church.

Note*There is a possibility that on 8 January 1900, William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey and some of their children lived at 802 Courtland Street, West Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, which is the address daughter Charlotte gave at the time of her wedding.13 
Occupation*He was an oysterman on 18 June 1900.1,8 
Census1900FedUS*He and Henrietta Frances Haughey appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of West Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, at 419 Lake Street, enumerated 18 June 1900. Their children Margaret, Charles Mills, Frances, Grace, Violet, William and Gussie were listed as living with them.8

NoteThere is a possibility that on 28 October 1906, William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey and some of their children lived at 235 West 17th Street, New York City, New York County, New York, which is the address daughter Frances gave at the time of her wedding.14 
NoteThere is a possibility that on 23 November 1907, William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey and some of their children lived at 638 Washington Street, New York City, New York County, New York, which is the address daughter Violet gave at the time of her wedding.11 
OccupationHe was working in the oyster business on 23 April 1910.10 
Census1910FedUS*He and Henrietta Frances Haughey appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of New York City, New York County, New York, at 38 Bedford Street, enumerated 23 April 1910. Their children Margaret, Grace, William and Charles Mills were listed as living with them, There was also a person listed as a servant in the household. Her name is illegible, something like Bertha/Martha Leny/Leu..., and she is shown as single, age 24, born NY, parents Russian (spoke Yiddish.)10 
Num Child*He and Henrietta Frances Haughey were shown in the 1900 census as having had 10 children, nine surviving at that date. In 1910, they claimed that of their 10 children, only five were still living. Family recollection is also that there were 10 children, but my research shows that at least eight of the children survived until the 1910 census. There is a possibility that Bessie and Gussie were the same person, although that would bring the number of identified children down to 9.10,2,64 
Residence At the time of his death William John Chitty lived at 240 West 10th Street, New York City, New York County, New York, and was a fish packer, probably at Fulton Fish Market..4 
Death*On 14 July 1912, William John Chitty drowned in the East River at Rutgers Street, New York City, New York County, New York, at age 57. This location is about a 1/2 mile upriver from where the Fulton Fish market was located at the time. Family lore is that William was a champion swimmer and drowned while trying to swim the East River with his shoes on, on a dare. His death certificate verifies the place and cause of death, but some mystery still surrounds it. Various children and grandchildren were told that William drowned in the year 1900, specifically, when his daughter Margaret was 7. Margaret herself repeated the story that after William's death, Henrietta was left with numerous young children and had them each learn a trade (Margaret's being bookkeeping). In fact, however, William attended Margaret's wedding to Howard Tucker Bailey, so it is not a matter of him being absent from family life. There is ample proof he lived with his family in 1900 and 1910 and at the time of his death.65,2,4,66,67 
Burial*He was buried on 18 July 1912 at Flower Hill Cemetery, 5433 Kennedy Boulevard, North Bergen, Hudson County, New Jersey.4 
Note*William was remembered by his family as a longshoreman.2

Note*There is a possibility that on 8 January 1900, Henrietta Frances Haughey and William John Chitty and some of their children lived at 802 Courtland Street, West Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, which is the address daughter Charlotte gave at the time of her wedding.14 
Census1900FedUS*She and William John Chitty appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of West Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, at 419 Lake Street, enumerated 18 June 1900. Their children Margaret, Charles Mills, Frances, Grace, Violet, William and Gussie were listed as living with them.15

NoteThere is a possibility that on 28 October 1906, Henrietta Frances Haughey and William John Chitty and some of their children lived at 235 West 17th Street, New York City, New York County, New York, which is the address daughter Frances gave at the time of her wedding.42

Census1910FedUS*She and William John Chitty appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of New York City, New York County, New York, at 38 Bedford Street, enumerated 23 April 1910. Their children Margaret, Grace, William and Charles Mills were listed as living with them There was also a person listed as a servant in the household. Her name is illegible, something like Bertha/Martha Leny/Leu..., and she is shown as single, age 24, born NY, parents Russian (spoke Yiddish.)17 
Num Child*She and William John Chitty were shown in the 1900 census as having had 10 children, nine surviving at that date. In 1910, they claimed that of their 10 children, only five were still living. Family recollection is also that there were 10 children, but my research shows that at least eight of the children survived until the 1910 census. There is a possibility that Bessie and Gussie were the same person, although that would bring the number of identified children down to 9.17,5,56 
(Witness) MarriageShe attended the wedding of Howard Tucker Bailey and Margaret Chitty on 8 May 1912 at 81 Jane Street, New York City, New York County, New York.57,58,47,59,60,61,62,63,49,64

Census1930FedUS*Henrietta appeared on the 1930 Federal Census of New York City, New York County, New York, at 240 West 10th Street, enumerated 3 April 1930. There appear to be numerous errors in the family's enumeration. Henrietta's children Charles Mills, Frances, Grace, Violet, James Egbert and Bessie were listed as living with her, as was her granddaughter Ruth Cavagnaro; but James, Violet, Bessie and Charles were also enumerated elsewhere with their own families. In addition, Frances is shown with her maiden name, as is Frances' daughter Ruth. Frances may have gone back to her maiden name, but Ruth herself used Cavagnaro later in life. Frances may also have remarried, and there are so many errors in this enumeration she may not have been living there. Ruth Cavagnaro reported late in life that she had been raised for a time by Henrietta, and she may have been living there but her mother with her new husband.20,72 
Death of DaughterHer daughter Grace Chitty died on 30 April 1932 at New York City, New York County, New York, at age 51.5,73,27,11 
Residence*Henrietta lived in 1940 at 608 88th Street, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. She may have been living with her daughter Violet and family, who are shown at this address on April 10th of that year in the census.6,74

Burial*She was buried on 27 September 1940 at Flower Hill Cemetery, 5433 Kennedy Boulevard, North Bergen, Hudson County, New Jersey.5,6,75,74 
Description*She was described by her granddaughter Ruth Cavagnaro, who lived with her for most of her childhood, as being very strict. She taught her granddaughters to be good cooks and very good housekeepers. She refused to use mops and told the girls "there were no round rooms" and that they should always wash floors by hand to be sure the corners were clean. (Ruth actually did this into her 90s.) She was a laundress and homemaker.76,6,5

He stated that for him Aunt Bess was his real mother. Family contact with him was lost after Aunt Bess died. Whether he was Charles' grandson, son or other relative is not certain. Note that Charles stated on his wedding certificate to Bessie that it was his first marriage. He was 39 at that time.3,5

That year he sent a photo to his sister Margaret Chitty (married name Bailey) with a note telling her to address her correspondence to Charles Clarkson on the USS Louisiana. He appeared on the 1940 census as Chitty, but in the 1942 draft registration as Clarkson, and his Social Security Death Index entry is for Clarkson. He seems to have used the two names interchangeably; I have not yet found evidence of a legal name change.15,7,8,13

These may have been Alice's parents and brother. In this enumeration, Charles stated that his father was born in England and his mother in the Irish Free State. I would not have accepted this as their listing except that the family was known to the Baileys.6 
Residence*He and Alice E. Edwards lived on 1 April 1935 at 205 Belleville Avenue, Belleville, Essex County, New Jersey. Their daughter Alice Marion lived with them.20

Notes*Alice and Charles Chitty were known personally by Howard Louis Bailey and his parents, and much of the information given for them came from their personal recollections. Charles was a union representative. He went to Howard Louis Bailey on Bible matters when he wanted to join the Masons. Howard stated that his vocabulary consisted principally of words not usually used in polite company. Cousin Ruth [Cavagnaro] used to visit with them a lot, same as Mildred visited the Baileys in Belleville.

Charles was a naval veteran of both World Wars.14,16,15,8,7,9

----------------------------
The following is adapted from a memorial service booklet published on occasion of Lewis' Memorial Service, 3/1/97, Floral Hills Chapel, 409 Filbert Rd., Lynnwood, WA 98036:

John Lewis Blackburn was born October 2, 1913 in Kansas City. Missouri, and was raised there by his parents, Lela Garnett and John Ealy Blackburn. He was the older bother of Lula May Blackburn Espenlaub. Lewis was baptized at the age of 12 at the Wornall Road Baptist Church where his parents were charter members.

During high school years and for a brief time after college graduation, he worked in a bookstore in downtown Kansas City that was owned by a close family friend. He would say later, with a grin, the experience "gave him an education in people." Though early on he had considered writing as a career, he decided on a degree in electrical engineering and graduated from the University of Illinois in 1935 with the honors of Eta Kappu Nu, Tau Beta Pi and Phi Kappa Phi.

He was a Registered Professional Engineer and recognized as a leader and respected authority on relay applications the world over. Honors bestowed on him were Sigma Xi Honor Society member; Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, winning the Institute's distinguished Service Award in 1978 and 1979, and the Centennial Medal in 1984; CIGRE US National Committee 1986 Attwood Associate Award. Westinghouse Electric Company awarded him their Order of Merit in 1971, and in 1980 the naming of the auditorium in the Coral Springs Florida facility, the "J. Lewis Blackburn Room." On February 14, 1997, Lewis was elected to membership in the National Academy of Engineering.

He worked for Westinghouse Electric Corp. for 42 years before retiring in 1978. He started those years as a design engineer, then went on to supervising, managing, consulting, lecturing and writing. He wrote the textbook standard for relay applications that is used today. He was responsible for writing 65 technical papers, 5 books and received 7 U.S. patents. He consulted and taught classes throughout the U.S. and around the world. He was a long-time President, Director and Treasurer of several societies. At the Millington Baptist Church in NJ, he was Treasurer for 13 years. In recent years he attended the First Baptist Church of Bothell [WA]. Lewis was a well-travelled man, an avid tourist, having travelled in 48 countries and all 50 states.

He married Peggy, Margaret Elizabeth Bailey, in 1943 and was happily married to her for over 53 years. He often spoke of her as his bride. They lived in Basking Ridge, NJ for 30 years before moving west to Bothell, WA in 1979.1,2,5
