Hi,

I'm no relation and I am really uncertain what information you are looking for regarding your GG Thomas. I can tell you when he enlisted, the date and place of his marriage to Jane Elan, and the fact there may be a civil war pension record. Also located a Nicholas Bailey in Iowa Co. in 1880. Can you be more specific as to what you are looking for -- maybe I can help.

Mike

Hi Mike
I am trying to find out how my great-great grandparents died after arriving in Wisconsin. There names were Thomas and Sarah Bailey, Sarah's maiden name was Clemo or Clymo. They came over in 1848, settled in Dodgeville or Mineral Point area. One of their sons, Thomas, is the one that enlisted--- I have his pension papers and copies of his military records and I have marriage and birth certs from Cornwall. And where would they be buried? I thank you for info.on Nicholas. Sharon

I checked the online vital records at this site but found no connection http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/vitalrecords/

You may wish to contact the Iowa County Historical Society at this email address ichistory@mhtc.net maybe they can help with your cemetery search.

Sorry I can't be of further help.

Hello Velma
Thank you for responding to my message.My great-great grandparents came to Wisconsin from Cornwall in 1848, they were miners. I am trying to find how and when Thomas and Sarah Bailey died after 2 years of arriving in Wisconsin. They had 3 sons survived and orphaned. My great-grandfather, Thomas, was one of their sons. And where could they be buried? I live in Texas and am trying to search online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. There has to be a cemetary somewhere near Dodgeville that have miners buried.As they had very little money. Thank you. Sharon Pollard

Hi Sharon,

I'm not sure if this will find you almost 7 years later but I am a descendent of Thomas' brother Nicholas (he's my 3rd great grandfather). I have Nicholas' obituary which states that their parents both died of cholera in 1850. And I just discovered you can view it online here: http://wiclarkcountyhistory.org/0data/9/9939.htm

Do you have more information on what happened to Thomas after they died? And how he came to end up in Colorado? As you can see from the obituary, Nicholas went to live with a Nicholas Thomas, and after a stint in CA/OR returned to the Dodgeville area and settled down.
