    Margaret "Pearl" (Burgess) Bailey
    Pearl Burgess was the wife of Glenn Bailey. They had five children. After Glenn died, and neighborhood friend, Bertha Leota (Lett) Brumm, Pearl married Bertha's husband, Oliver Clayton Brumm.
    Five Women of the Mediapolis, Iowa, Presbyterian Church
    Five Women of the Mediapolis, Iowa, Presbyterian Church
    The back of this photograph identifies these women as Lucille Hutchcroft, Pearl Bailey, Aunt Nettie, Mayme Shutt, and Bertha Brumm.

    More fully described, these women are: Martha "Lucille" (Vannice) Hutchcroft (1896-1979). Lucille was the wife of Clarence Arthur Hutchcroft and the grandmother of Deborah Sue Trevitt, who is married to Earl "Wayne" Lowe. (Earl is a great grandson of Charles Francis Walker, and is a maternal side relative. The others identified as relatives in this photograph are on my paternal family side.)

    Margaret "Pearl" (Burgess) Bailey (1893-1983). Pearl was married to Glenn Ruble Bailey when this photograph was taken. Later she married my grandfather, Oliver "Clayton" Brumm, after the death of his wife, Bertha (far right, she died in 1953) and the 1950 death of her husband, Glenn.

    Aunt Nettie is Nettie Marie (Johnson) Paddock (1885-1963), the daughter of Samuel Edmond and Hannah Marie (Honson) Johnson. Nettie was an aunt of Bertha Brumm (far right). She did not live in Mediapolis, and probably was visiting the day the photograph was taken.

    I don't know for certain who Mayme Shutt is, but if she is Mary Shutt and "Mayme" is a nickname, she is Mary Francis (Friedemann) Shutt (1887-1976), who is the sister of Charles Friedemann, and her brother married Ruth Ellen Brumm.

    Bertha Leota (Lett) Brumm (1893-1953) was my grandmother, the wife of Clayton Brumm.
