    In 1920, Bailey J is listed as Jack, a nickname for the John.  But onegenealogy reports his middle name as Jackson instead of John, whichwould also yield the nickname Jack.  No documentation was offered bythe genealogy.  But I discovered that his maternal grandmother'smaiden name was Jackson.  So Jackson as a middle name makes sense.

    Right after that I found his WWI draft registration, which had nevercome up before in any searches.  This has his full name as BaileyJackson Lovin, with his signature of the full name.

    In 1920 and 1930 he is listed in the census under the name Jack.  Mostof his later listings in records have his name as Jack.

    The next record in time sequence is puzzling.  B E's son BaileyJackson, of Jack, is listed in 1929 in a directory listing inCalifornia, where Jack and his wife Edith Fitzhugh lived out theirlater life.  They married in early 1920 in Oklahoma, and their firstchild was born in January 1921 in Oklahoma.  The California listing isfrom the 1929 City Directory for Bakersfield, at the southern end ofthe San Joaquin Valley.  And this matches a later listing in Merced,California, also in the Joaquin Valley, in 1955.  The puzzling thingabout it is that the next year they are enumerated in the 1930 censusback in Allen, Oklahoma, where they were before.

    In 1930, he is now going by the name Jack and is given the middleinitial B for Bailey, his actual first name.

    At some point they moved to Lubbock.  They were reported in theLubbock City Directory for 1938, 1939 and 1940.

    They were still in Lubbock in 1941 when their son Bailey J Jr enlistedin the Army there.  After the War they moved to California.  They werereported there in the Ventura City Directory for 1948-1949.  Their sonJoseph is in their household.

    A 1955 directory listing appears to be for Bailey and Edith, but it isin Merced, California, back up in the Joaquin Valley, north ofBakersfield where they were listed in 1929, before showing up back inOklahoma in the 1930 census, and Lubbock in the 1930s.

    Bailey and Edith and both their sons and wives were listed in the 1956City Directory for Ventura, California.  The second entry here forJack seems to refer to Bailey Jackson Jr.  Note the different town,Fillmore, in the residence address.  The first entry reports thatBailey J (Sr) and Edith live in Santa Paula).  Both went by Jack, butthe different home address would indicate another family unit.  Theentry for Baily Jack here also reports the wife as Edith.  Maybe theseare two entries for Bailey Jackson Sr with jobs at different carcompanies.

    But Bailey Jackson Jr is a physician,a nd was reported in 1955 inTexas, where he was an instructor in pediatrics.  Both these entriessound like his father Bailey Jackson Sr.  But the home address isdifferent.

    Joseph and Betty are part owners of the Lovin & Morill company.  Joe'slisting seems to indicate that he and Betty owned two residences, onein El Rio and another in Oxnard, both in northern Ventura County.
