Orphan during Civil War fighting in Gettysburg, "Bailey"

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bailey, Kreitz,
I am trying to find the parents of Abraham Bailey b. 1851 in PA. He told his family he was hiding behind a ladies dress while she was handing out pancakes to soldiers. He later married Margaret Kreitz of Mt. St. Mary's or St. Anthony's parish, Emmitsburg, Md. The ended up living at her parents house on the old
Thurmont Rd. which is not Kelbaugh Rd.
They were my Great grandparents and are buried in the graveyard at the Grotto behind Mt. St. Mary's College. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
