Hi, I just finished creating a profile on a Centenarian and military veteran Vivian Millie Bailey, who just passed her 100th birthday. 

In this source it was revived that Vivian Millie was married to William Bailey, but she had no biological children. She and her husband, William, bought a brand new house in Columbia, Howard, Maryland in 1970, where Vivian Bailey still resides. 

Ref: http://hermindmagazine.com/wp/living-to-give/ 

My roadblock is that there is no further info on her husband except he died sometime after 1984 according to another source. I would like to find out when and where William was born, when he and Vivian were married, but most of all when did William die. Most likely he died somewhere near Columbia, Howard, Maryland, where the couple resided. 

Thanks in advance for any help in this puzzle.

If this is the right W. Bailey, he died in Zip Code 21216 (Baltimore, Maryland)

"United States Social Security Death Index," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VSGD-SPG : 20 May 2014), Willie Bailey, Oct 1985; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

birth:

4 October 1915

death:

October 1985

Maryland

Thanks Dorothy C, 

With further checking this one seems closer thou, because all the references used concerning Millie's husband always stated William, not Willie. 

"United States Social Security Death Index," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JGZ7-T3Y : 20 May 2014), William H Bailey, 07 Jan 1989; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

Birth 25 Jan 1919

Death  7 Jan 1989  Maryland.

Wonder if anyone can connect this man (or the first one) to Vivian Millie Bailey. Would have to know his race as well. 

Just added his picture that Millie has on her lap during an interview with Her Mind Magazine.

According to this source http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/meet-97-year-surprised-obama-field-trip-white/story?id=31339457

after leaving the Army, Bailey moved to Chicago where she met her husband. Could he have been born in Chicago??

Looking, but so far no info. Is there a reason why Vivian's profile isn't opened? Generally, I believe that folks who died 100 years ago should be opened... though I definitely don't want to nag! Still looking...

She hasn't died. She celebrated her 100th birthday Monday the 5th of February.
Ohhhh...congratulations to her! No wonder I'm having trouble finding her obit- so sorry!
No problem Dorothy, I posted a remark at the end of the biography that Millie is indeed still alive as of this posting. Thank you for wanting to help!
