Dear Barbara, You don't know happy I was to hear from you. I too, am a direct descendent of John Bailey and Elijah. I would love to have any info you have about John's marriages, dates, and circumstances of both marriages. Did Martha die? And did he marry Priscilla after her death? Tell me more about John's mother possibly being a Harrison. My given name is Virginia Harrison Bailey, but go by Ginny. I have heard that there were several John Bailey's at that time in that area. My family has always thought that our Captain/Rev. John Bailey was the one that fought in the Revolutionary War with George Rogers Clark. Do you have any info about this? Here is my line:
John, Elijah, Harrison, Hartwell, Joseph Harrison Sr. Joseph Harrison Jr. (my father) and Virginia Harrison (ME).
As you must realize, I am most interested in my Bailey line. I too, have alot of info and would love to share what I have with you. Please write back soon, I'm dying to hear from you! email me at: email@example.com
Where do you live? I live in Shelbyville, Kentucky where many of my anscestors lived and are buried. My father has 100 acres next to a cousin's farm where the old Bailey house still stands. It was built in 1861 by Thomas Chiles Bailey. Please write back soon!
Your Kentucky Cousin,
