Seventies: He also provided some great links to a man who may have been his contraband ancestor... named Africa Bailey.

HistoryBuff: Nice.

alt: wonderful!!

Seventies: The story was really fascinating...

alt: did he say how he came across this new information?

Seventies: Website and RG105 documents... Let me see if I can locate the links he gave...

alt: he's fortunate that his ancestor could be found in these records

Seventies: Apparently, this Africa Bailey had a son named Tom Bailey. Tom Bailey is his gg grandfather. He's trying to narrow it down.

alt: great, so he has made a documented connection.

Seventies: He says it's down to two Toms... But his Tom Bailey just appeared in Marshall Co, MS in 1880 after Africa died in the Yellow Fever epidemic in 1878 in TN
