I note you have a Louis Bryan Bailey in your line.

I have a Bryan Bailey b. 1806 married to Teresa Johnston who was in Houston County, Ga. in 1829 and in Randolph County, Ga. by 1849. Migrated to Winn Parish, La. 1857.

Any chance James Levi and Bryan are related?

Incidentally, for some reason my address on this message is wrong. Correct address is

My Louis Bryan Bailey was married to a Sarah Erwin, so it looks like they are not the same person.

I have my information on line now, so you might want to have a look at it and see if you see any matches.

Thanks for the reply!

Hi there,
I too am looking for the parents of William Bailey who was born circa 1750 in VA. I noticed your question re: the Bryan name and the Bailey name. I do have a Bryan that married into the Bailey line: Mary "Polly" Bryan Married James Wiley C. Bailey. Mary's father Lewis H. Bryan/Bryant 1780-1851. Hope this was helpful.

Thanks Theresa.

My 3rd grandmother was Teresa or Theresa or Clarissa Johnston Bailey married to Bryan(t)Bailey. She was born 1808, probably in Ga.and that is about all I know about her other than that a Frances Johnston was living with her and Bryan in the 1850 Randolph County, Ga. and the 1860 Winn Parish, La. census.

My oldest known Bailey ancestor is Philip b. 1760-1769 according to the 1830 Houston County, Ga. census which is the only census he appears on.

There are 5 Philip Baileys in the 1790 Virginia census, none of which I can tell migrated to Ga. What a mess.

I know Philip probably was in NC because his daughter lovecey (spelled several ways) was born there ca. 1791 and I can find Philip Baileys in NC, but no way to connect them to my Phillip.

I appreciate your response and good luck.

I am interested in establishing contact with persons studying James Levi Bailey....

My grandfather, another James Levi Bailey, is descended from Baileys who settled first in Rowley, Mass., in the colonial period. After one of the family, a Samuel Bailey, was killed in the Battle of Bunker Hill, Samuel's son moved to Vermont and began a very successful milling operation at Bailey's Mills. That small community still exists and the large home is today a Bed and Breakfast. When we visited there some years ago we were shown a secret trap door leading to a hidden room that was a stop on the Underground Railroad.

My grandfather's father, Ransom Bailey, left Vermont and settled first at Baileyville, Illinois, and then moved to Iowa. I was born in Iowa but my work brought me back East to New Jersey.

Several years ago my wife met a woman from Virginia whose name was Bailey, and who claimed that her ancestors also were involved in helping slaves get up North and eventually to Canada.

My question is this: Is it a coincidence that there were two James Levi Baileys, and could there be any connection with that underground railroad.
