Thayer's Notes:

a Lt. Bailey's middle name and birth data are from his AOG obituary.

[decorative delimiter]

b The Register as printed has "Detroit, Mich."; an understandable error for the small town of Detroit in Red River County, Texas. His AOG obituary puts his death in that county, the county of his birth.
