John
b. ~1764
lived Bluefield
m. Nancy Davidson
      (b. ~1764, d. bef 30 Apr 1806 d/o John Goolman Davidson and Martha Draper)

"John Bailey, the eldest son, married Nancy Davidson, the daughter of John G. Davidson, and, in 1789, he built a log house on the south side of Bowyer's branch, on the farm now owned by Thompson Calfee . . . in which Mr. Jonathan Bailey, their oldest son, was born in 1790, and when he was but four days old an Indian incursion into the neighborhood caused Mr. Bailey to
take his wife and child on horseback to the fort at the Beaver Pond."
                  (Johnston, p. 377-8)
This of course contradicts the theory put forth by The Bailey Family that the fort was built in 1783 - but Susan says the fort was completed in 1783, so maybe that is what The Bailey Family is referring to.

From Susan Richmond: "In those days a boy was considered a man by the time he was 14 and did a man's work in the field, forest, or fighting. Both John and brother James were experienced woodsmen, scouts, hunters, and Indian fighters."
John and his brother James were assigned to guard duty at forts (Wynn's Fort, Thomas Whitten's fort at crab Orchard, the Reece Bowen Fort at Maiden Springs, and the Bailey-Davidson Fort) from 1780-1794.
John was present at the Battle of Point Pleasant.
"The log house which he built on the south of Bowyer's Branch 1789 now stands at present day Bluefield, Virginia. His grave is in the yard of the Whitethorn School. According to the 1830 Census of Tazewell County, John owned 11 slaves. His home was moved to the Bluefield City Park by the John Chapman Chapter - DAR."

He purchased with his son Henry, 8,000 acres at "the Rock" of Bluestone and extending a great distance along the Bluestone and its tributaries. He owned 200 acres at Lorton Lick, and various other acreages which he patented from the government. He gave each of his sons and son-in-law a sizeable tract of land.
        He erected a mill at the mouth of the Lashmeet Creek on the Bluestone very close to the Clover Bottom farm of the Mitchell Clay family.
        Richard is thought to be one of the first settlers of Rock, Virginia/West Virginia. He lived on Lake Shawnee Road, near Bluestone River. His home is now owned by the Wesley O'Donnell family. He was a farmer and trapper. In 1837, he deeded much of his thousands of acres of land to his son Eli and all of their household goods in lieu of caring for them in their old age.

James

all the narrative is from Susan Richmond
1766 - born Bedford (or Fincastle) County, Virginia
        John and his brother James were assigned to guard duty at forts (Wynn's Fort, Thomas Whitten's fort at crab Orchard, the Reece Bowen Fort at Maiden Springs, and the Bailey-Davidson Fort) from 1780-1794.

     It was to James Bailey's that his aunt, Phoebe Belcher Clay, fled with her surviving children after the Indians had massacred two of her children and kidnaped her son, Ezekiel. (1783)
      James became part of the pursuit party. They followed the Indians, and the next morning, came upon where the Indians had met with another raiding party with horses and had camped for the night. The ashes of the campfire were still warm. The two parties had taken different routes, so they followed the horse tracks, believing that the captive would be with the horses. When they overtook the Indians, two Indians were shot and killed, but the captive was not with that group. After taking up the other trail, it was decided that they could not overtake the Indians, so they returned to the Clay house to bury the two children.
      After returning to James Bailey's home, Mitchell Clay, James Bailey and James Moore decided to go to the Indian town (Chillicothe) and try to ransom Ezekiel. When they reached the Indian town, they saw the smoke from the stake still burning and that Ezekiel was dead. The Chief of the town loaned Mitchell Clay a horse to take his son's body back home.

1806-

James moved his family from the head of Bluestone River and settled in the year 1806 two miles below Baileysville. James moved his family to a farm on Daves' Branch in Wyoming County, Virginia. The party was made up of wagons drawn by horses, loaded with household and farm gear, tools, supplies, personal possessions, and several slaves. The actual distance to travel was not great but the trip took up several days of tiresome, hard work. For some distance there was a makeshift road, narrow and rough. At Bailey's Branch on the Indian Ridge trail this road ended, and the trail could scarcely be seen through the brush. James directed the unloading of gear and dismantling of wagons, sending the slaves ahead with axes to chop out a passage way. The wagon parts were rolled and carried along this way to a point where they could be reassembled, then gear and supplies were carried to the wagons and again loaded, which added greatly to the labor and fatigue of already difficult travel and consuming extra days. James was 48 at this time.

When the Indians were finally driven from southwestern Virginia, settlers began to buy land and establish farms and homes on their former hunting and camping grounds. Dave Morgan, dissatisfied with his farm on Dave's Branch, sold it to James Bailey about 1814. Morgan had lived on the place for around ten years and improved it by building a dwelling house and farm buildings,
clearing fields for cultivation, etc.

      m.1 Ester (Hester, Hettie) Amburn (21 Mar 1821,Grayson Co, Va) 2 Rachel Glandon (14 June 1832, Crooked Creek, Grayson)
The following is an unproven story about Zachariah's early life which has been passed down through the generations:
      "Zachariah Bailey was born in Body Top, Virginia. His mother was Miss Mary Bailey and his father was thought to have been a Hopkins. As his mother was unwed, he took his mother's name.
      A lost child in the late 1790's, as far as we can figure out, he was four years old in the year of 1798. His home was in the upper part of the Carolinas or the Southern part of Virginia. His mother brought him to this house where he lived. Miss Bailey was riding a horse carrying saddle bags and her smallest son Robert. The oldest son being Zachariah was riding a pack mule. He kept falling off the pack mule, so she stopped at this house and left him there with the understanding she would be back for him. There were rumors she was carrying important papers for the Army, and that she was on her way to Louisiana, but she never came back or was heard of again. Rumors were that she camped in a nearby school house, and the school burned down that night. Zachariah lived at this place believing that he was bound to the owner until he was 18 years old. Not knowing anything of his mother or his younger brother, Robert, except he remembered the saddle bags that his mother was carrying on the horse she was riding. He saw them and recognized them at this place much later when he was older. The man he lived with was unkind to him and brought him up like a slave, but he stayed until he grew into young manhood.
      A neighbor by the name of Mr. Hawkins got sick and sent for Zachariah. This man had been a life long friend to him and was good and kind to Zachariah. So Zachariah went to see Mr. Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins told Zachariah that he wasn't going to live long, and that Zachariah was not bound to the man he worked for all these years. He told him of his mother leaving him there and never being heard of again, and that he was a free man, and to leave this man as soon as he could. Zachariah decided to leave and left the following day.
      Zachariah walked five or six days in a northerly direction. He could tell he was gong north by the bark on the trees. He stopped at a home for something to eat. This was Body Top, Virginia. This was Mr. Amburn's home. The family was good and kind to him. Later Zachariah married Mr. Amburn's daughter Esther. He lived with her twelve years, and she died leaving no children.

David claimed (in his will) that his wife was Tabitha McComas (b. aft 1799)- who was probably his niece, daughter of Thomas and Mary Ann Aldridge. He left Chloe's son James $1 in his will, and in at least one legal document, stated that he had no children.

1796 son James (McComas) born -
              m. cousin Rebecca Bailey 7 Sep 1820 Tazewell (d/o John Bailey)
              d. 25 Aug 1865 - Mercer (probably), WV

Speculation is that he is not the son of David McComas, but instead of David Lusk. There is a court case in Tazewell County against Chloe McComas and David Lusk in 1801, which continues on for 3 years, until David McComas leaves the county. Later, there are deeds signed by David Lusk and Chloe his wife, but no marriage certificate has ever been found.

1796-1802 - "married" David Lusk

      David disappears from the personal property tax lists by 1834, but not from land tax until 1837 when "heirs of David Lusk" own his property. (this from Netti S-Y; Sandy Jessee says 1834)
1836 - 1838 Chloe in tax records with one horse. next to daughter Chloe jr.
by 1840 Chloe sr disappears
David and Chloe apparently separated at some time in the 20s. David is named as her father by Sarah Thomas on her marriage license in 1854.  Sarah's mother was Jemima Thomas, and Thomas researchers claim all 5 of Jemima's children were fathered by David - the first, Jane, was born in about 1818.

He was an old trapper and hunter on the upper end of Micajah's and Beartown Ridges on Flat Top Mountain, and became the first settler and ancestor of the numerous Bailey families in that section. He built a hunting lodge on Micajah's Ridge in Wyoming County and this ridge was named in his honor. His descendants settled along Micajah's Ridge and the Beartown section

Dr. Isaac b. ~1801 m. 1 Juda Morgan (bef 1821)
      m. 2 Judah Judy Cooke 7 Mar 1821 Giles Co
      Dr. Isaac Bailey was an old country doctor, pioneer school teacher, and Baptist convention secretary. He and Judy lived many years on Bear Branch, below Jesse. He was a versatile churchman, scribe, teacher, farmer and general practitioner. Dr. Bailey, was one of the earliest doctors to practice in the Oceana-Clearfork-Huff area.

      Thomas Bailey was the first settler on the head of Big Huff Creek. He was a farmer, in addition to which he dug "sang," hunted, and coursed wild bees for sport and profit. He surveyed the first land run out above Road Branch. He owned 1300 acres of land. He and his wife were members of the Guyandotte Baptist Church, and he was active in local and county affairs. He taught the first Sunday School on Big Huff. They had no literature, but had a Bible study class, reading a lesson and then discussing and commenting on it. He also taught spelling and reading in this Sunday School and gave rewards to the best students.
      He and his father-in-law, Thomas Cooke, were watching at a deer lick on Road Branch when they heard a stealthy movement in the leaves. An instant later they saw a panther creeping towards them. As it sprang about ten feet and landed upon the smooth bark of a birth tree, one of them shot it. The body of the dying cat began sliding down the trunk, its claws cutting deep scars in the bark all the way to the ground, where it died. The scars were discernable sixty years later to men who first saw them as boys. Many years later Henry Toler cleared the land on which the tree tood
