Re: Baily 1870, 1880?
In Response To: Re: Baily 1870, 1880? ()

Oliver Bailey was my great grandfather? Maragret was his sister I have been told by other family members? I am trying to trace Maragret Bailey? I have been told by my mother that her father Abraham "Abe" Bailey told her his father was from Alabama.. I was also told they would lie about where they came from. Oliver (Drinkwater) Bailey and his sister Maragret Bailey were Choctaw Indians. And their last name was Drinkwater and not Bailey! They said William Bailey whose plantation they lived on said they were Bailey's and forbid them from using the Drinkwater name. So some census information may be incorrect?
