Notes

  • One source says that the father of Amos Strange's wife was a Germanimmigrant.  There is some mistake with the surname Bailey, which is aNorman French name from the noun "baillis" for an official,administrator or court official.  The English word "bailiff" is a formof the same word.  The name is associated with a lineage in Ireland,and other sources I later found reported that Frances and her familywere Irish.  But as of the end of April 2010, I have not been able todefinitely identify the father of David Bailey.  Some genealogies sayhis father's name was William Bailey.

    This Irish origin was confirmed to me by another researcher, adescendant of Frances and Amos, Elisa Strange-Von Rice:
    "I have the Baileys are Irish Immigrants, in fact a paragraph in theAmos Strange info said, he left a large estate and the church of hisforefathers to marry the Irish Lass, Frances Bailey."

    I found census two entries for a David Bailey that seems to be thisDavid William Bailey.  in 1790 he is head of a household of 1 freewhite male over 16 and one under, and 2 females (ages not reported inthis first US census.  Next door is a Daniel Bailey and household.  Iexpect this is David and Frances' son.  On the same page are alsohouseholds of an Isaac Bailey, Zachariah Bailey and "Widow" Bailey."

    1790 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 432
    David Bailey    1 male under 16, 1 male over 16, 3 females

    1790 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 432
    Daniel Bailey    1 male over 16, 1 female

    1790 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 432
    Zachariah Bailey    1 male under 16, 4 males over 16, 4 females, 1slave

    1790 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 432
    Isaac Bailey    1 male under 16, 2 males over 16, 2 females, 2 slaves

    1790 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 432
    Widow Bailey    1 male under 16, 1 male over 16, 4 females

    Two doors down from David Bailey is Amous Strainge, who matches AmosStrange, husband of David's daughter Frances Bailey.  Finding thesetwo entries together seems to indicate this is the family in ourlineage.  Next door, between David and Amos is John Bailey, who seemsto be David's son and Frances' brother.

    1800 Federal Census, Laurens District, South Carolina, page 33
    David Bailey  1 male over 45, 1 female over 45
