B. G. BAIL
Among the live and energetic business men of Castro Valley stands B. G. Bail, who is conducting a successful real
estate business, and is also operating a chicken ranch. He is a progressive and up to date business man and stands
high in the esteem of his fellowmen. He was born at Tuscola, Illinois, on the 24th of May, 1887, and is a son of
William and Laura (Gardner) Bail, the former of whom was engaged in the monument business. Mr. Bail secured his
education in the public schools of his native city and remained at home until twenty years of age. In 1907 he went
to Portland, Oregon, where he accepted a position as office manager for the Union Meat Company, with which concern
he remained until 1912, when he went to San Francisco, and was there associated with the Western Meat Company for
two years. He then moved to Oakland, where he embarked in the real estate business, which proved a successful venture
and he remained there until 1925, when he came to Castro Valley. Here he bought property and has since devoted
his attention to the real estate business, and also looks after his chicken ranch at his home on Redwood road.
In 1914 Mr. Bail was united in marriage to Miss Irene Teague, who was born and reared in Oakland and is a daughter
of John E. and Mary L. Teague, both of whom are natives of California. Mrs. Bail's paternal grandfather crossed
the plains to California in the early '50s. To Mr. and Mrs. Bail have been born four children: Burford, Dorothy,
Shirley and William J. Mr. Bail is a man of sound business judgment, has shown a deep interest in this community
and has gained a high place in public regard.
