Re: Baily 1870, 1880?

Hello Laveda,

Odd - I find the family I think you are talking about listed in Ward 7, not 5 and Oliver's birthplace in 1870 as Mississippi, not Alabama.
No first name is listed - just the initial - but it does seem to be the exact same family in 1880 listed under Oliver.

What census records are you looking at? These are the one's on ancestry. I think it has created confusion for the folks who have been attempting to search for you.

Indexed in 1870:

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

Ailey 30 b. Mississippi
Minnie 9 b. Louisiana
Emaline 5 b. Louisiana
Mary 6
Clara 5
Jerome 6/12
Margaret 23 b. Georgia

no relationships listed
