Surnames: Bailey, Woods
Still searching for any living relatives of Elijah and Nina WOODS BAILEY. I can find no info on any living relatives of this couple. My friend in Scotland is eager to make contact with any American relatives. Elijah's children were Eugene Harold BAILEY, 1910-1976, Anna Lurene, who had no children, George, 1913-1996 and Thornton, 1916-1989, who died in Oregon. His wife was Eunice _______.
Nina's brother was Emerson WOODS,1886-1945, who married a woman named Irene MILLER or maybe DUNCAN, They had one child, Ernest,1918-1989, whose wife was a Madeline MEBE, and I can find no info on this line, either. Ernest and Irene died in California. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any of these peoples SS#?
I see you have where Thorton passed,maybe try contacting the state vital records in oregon(usually in the state capital city)and see if they could help you with a look up of his death(for a small fee I'm sure).Also try posting on surname message boards. hope this helps a little.

Thank you. I will forward this data to Maureen. As I told her, I get the feeling that her family was not very productive in having children. Also, even if they did, they all seemed to move around so much that I wouldn't begin to know what state any children would have been born in.

Here's info on the cemetery where Eugene and Hazel Bailey are buried:

http://www.genealogybuff.com/tx/tx-gillespie-greenwoodcem.ht...

It's possible that a couple of the other Baileys are relatives. It's also possible some non-Baileys there are relatives (i.e., married daughters, perhaps.)

You should contact the cemetery to see if anyone else is in the plot -- and who is in the plots next to them.

Thank you. I appreciate the help. This family moved around more than my own ancestors did, making it very hard to track down any children.

**** it's possible Nina & Elijah divorced or she passed away - although I can't find a record of either.
Since this seems to match the other Elijah Baileys' above, it appears he remarried and had more children.
You might want to post on the Modesto county, CA message board & see if someone would do an OBIT lookup for you on Elijah.
