Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Feb 3, 1909
Levit Mack BAYLESS, second child of John G. and Lydia M. Bayless was born Feb 7, 1871 in Indiana and at the time of his death Jan 26, 1909 he attained the age of 37 years 11 months 19 days. For two weeks prior to death, his sufferings were intense. As a boy and man he had never been especially rugged and in later years he had shown unmistakable signs of failing health. Though born and reared on a farm he never enjoyed the avocation of the farmer, as such a life was not conducive to his tastes. He was a natural musician and along this line of work he was skillful and painstaking and had wrought for himself in the city of Crawfordsville a successful business. He made his confession of his Savior in early life in the little old church where today his funeral services are being held. He was married to Lena May CREQUE March 15, 1900 and to this union 3 children were born: Ruth, 6; Donald passing away at 10 months and Glen who is now 8 months. Levit was of a friendly and kind disposition and was always had a kind word for the friends he knew best. One of the traits of his character most especially noticeable was his strong love for his children, especially for the bright sweet little girl of six years whom those who know him best say he almost worshipped. She was the pride of his life and had become old enough to love him in return. He is survived by his wife, two children, his parents, his sister, Mrs. Ada Clore and brother, Arthur. The parents and sister and brother will miss his companionship and his comings and goings but sad it is that the little woman is deprived of her husband and support and the little children of the love of a father. But God in his infinite wisdom knows bet and to His decrees we should willingly bow.
