Bobby recalls Bella was adamant in him meeting his grandfather and took him once to Palestine, TX. (a small house on a large wooded lot at 612 Dorrance St.) as a young boy (approximately 1957), to meet for the fist time, Earnest Sr., 72 years old, now blind and bald. It was unusual that for a man of his age to have without wrinkle, such smooth chestnut brown skin and also to be so flamboyant with such keen wit. He recalls Ernest Bailey Sr. as a man with a booming voice who enjoyed telling jokes with so much alertness and great sense of humor. In a strange and uncanny, perhaps a blind man's manner, he did not know me but instantaneously made us both laugh. We feel that his great humor must have had a gene because it was passed down in the family.

Note to reader: all official records reviewed thus far list the name as "Earnest" rather than "Ernest". It is unclear as to when the name changed with successive generations. There is no known existing photograph of Pops at this time but that image I have of him during our first, last and only meeting will remain etched forever.
