From unknown paper, unknown date
Ross Bailiff, the 19 year old son of Ed Bailiff and wife, was taken
Monday to the asylum at Kankakee. The following accompanied
him as far as Marshall, Sam Buckner, Roe McCrory, Chalk Niday, and
the father, mother and sister of the unfortunate young man. A
Marshall, Sheriff M. M. Heddrick took Ross in charge and left the
same evening with him for his new home.
It is hoped that a speedy and permanent cure will be attainable and
that Ross will soon be among us again.
