Re: Marriage & Census Look up Claiborne Parish

Hi Laveda,

I'm confused. If Pearlie was Emoline's sister - and Oliver is Emoline's dad - wouldn't Oliver's wife be Pearlie's mom - or did she die?

Cause Oliver and his wife, and Emoline, are listed in 1880 census:

Name: Oliver Bailey
Home in 1880: 5th Ward, Claiborne, Louisiana
Age: 56
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1824
Birthplace: Tennessee
Relation to head-of-household: Self
Spouse's name: Ailsey
Father's birthplace: Virginia
Mother's birthplace: Virginia
Neighbors: View others on page
Occupation: Farm Laborer
Marital Status: Married
Race: Black
Gender: Male

Household Members: Name Age
Oliver Bailey 56
Ailsey Bailey 44
Emiline Bailey 18
Mary Bailey 16
Clarra Bailey 13
Jerome Bailey 11
William Bailey 8
Abram Bailey 6
Elvira Bailey 4
Robbert Bailey 1

This same family is listed 1870 - but mis-spelled (Oliver is listed as initial B in index)

Name: B Baily
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1830
Age in 1870: 40
Birthplace: Mississippi
Home in 1870: Ward 7, Claiborne, Louisiana

If Oliver was her dad - here's his marriage record:

Name: Oliver Bailey
Spouse: Ilsey Wells

Marriage Place: Claiborne

There is a young Oliver Bailey - (different family) who married a Wafer:

Name: Oliver Bailey
Spouse: Laura Wafer

Marriage Place: Claiborne

Her sister Emiline's marriage is also listed:

Oliver died:
