Here are three obituary/newspaper item statements about the same person, from two different newspapers on the same day. Which one do you like best? They are all different to some degree.

BAYLY – Alfred P., Feb. 28, at 511 Thistle Street, age 75 years. Beloved husband of Mary L. Bayly. Brother of Frank and George Bayly. Rosary Friday (today), 8. p.m. from Chapel Georgetown Funeral Home. Requiem High Mass Saturday, 9. a.m. from Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Interment Calvary.

Seattle Times, Seattle, Washington, 2 March 1951, page 40, column 2.

The correct street address is 851 Thistle Street, although, in the 1940 U. S. Census, the family had lived at 857 Thistle Street (and was mis-enumerated as “Dayly.”

The brother, Frank, appears in all of them, but George in only one. In a fourth item, from the P-I, he also appears; but I didn’t post it because the image I have is too dark.

Tell me what you think.
