Bailey Gorda is a familiar name in my family. My uncle's name was Bailey and my great grandfather's name was Bailey. I believe my great grandfather was born in North Carolina in 1868 and later moved to Springfield, IL. He was married to Clara Bennett and died in 1932. Is there any relation here to you? Thank you.

Yes, your great grandfather is my great great grand-uncle. I have the following information: Baily was born 24 Aug 1862 in North Carolina. He married Clara Primrose Bennett on 15 Dec 1892 in Farmington, Saint Francois County, Mo. I have his death date as 06 Sept 1931 in Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois. I have Clara Primrose Bennet born 25 Aug 1875 in Iron County, Mo and death date 04 Sep 1956 in Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois.

This makes you my 3rd cousin once removed. I would be interested in exchanging more infornation, and have quite a bit of research information on many of the Gordy/Gorda lines.

Look forward to hearing from you. Stephnen

Yes, I am extremely interested to get more information from you about the Gorda/Gordy lines. My email address is lonton96@cableone.net. It's a long story but even my father knows very little about his heritage. Thus, the information you provide will be my first real insight to my heritage. I'm very anxious to hear from you. Thank you!

Stephen,
I think we have been in touch before. I was just looking at the message board, which I haven't perused in quite some while, and found your emails re. Bailey. I have a lot of gaps in this family line (and the siblings of Bailey).
Please email me and we can begin a dialogue. I would like to also include anyone else who is interested. My researching group has found a lot of new background information on the original Gordys. We are working toward as complete a family picture as we can get to put somewhere on line within the next year.
Sincerely, Melinda Gordy Corporon melinda@texhoma.net

Robin, Hi, I have been looking for my great-grandmother, Annie B. Gordy and can't find anything on her. She was born October 10, 1864 in Alabama and died June 14, 1902 in Arkansas. I am thinking she was Indian. I would truly appreciate any help you could offer. Thank you, Linda Langley
