Both my mother and father were born and raised in Silverton Colorado's beautiful San Juan Mtns. Unlike all of the other married couples at this genealogy site, I have given each of them a page due to the large amount of material for each. Later I may create a page where they are together. My father's page is accessed by clicking here.
Some of Sara's early summers were spent with the Maxwells in Odessa, Missouri and she attended school there for at least one year; however, she graduated from Silverton High School in 1924. She obtained her B.A and M.Ed. from the University of Colorado in Boulder. After a short stint in journalism, Sara taught with the Denver Public Schools for thirty years at North, Manual, and East high schools, teaching journalism, English, Latin, and Spanish.
Mother was married first to Donald Eson, a pharmacist in Littleton, Co. Click here for their page.
On August 13, 1996, her ashes joined those of my father, Jesse S. Baily, at the Maxwell site at the Hillside Cemetery in Silverton.
