Tombstone Tuesday : Henry Joseph Bailey

Henry Benjamin Joseph Bailey (04 January 1884 - 17 September 1920), my great grandfather was born in Albany to Johanna O'Donnell (1853 - 1912) and Henry Joseph Bailey (1852 - 1894). He worked as a lineman for Albany Power & Light until he was electrocuted while trimming tree branches from an electric pole on Hawk Street. He left behind a wife and two young daughters. A follow-up bio on Henry will be coming in the future. Below is a photo of his gravesite after his funeral.
