Hi Betty, I sent you an e-amil, but I guess it got lost in cyber-space.You're right, Albert H. is the father of John B. This is what I have n my database:
JOHN HOWARD BAILEY, s/o John and Ellen (Brazee) Bailey, b. May1890@Goshen,(IGI) Litchfield Co., CT, m. Sadie Viola Murray, d. 30Sep1965@Clarksburg MA
JOHN BAILEY, (do you know what the B. stands for?), s/o Albert H. Bailey, prob. b. May 1862 at Cornwall, Litchfield, CT, m. Ellen Brazee, b.Nov.1867@MA (IGI); he d. ~1940.
ALBERT H. BAILEY, b.~1819,prob. in Goshen; m.Harriet (she is mother of Albert, Chauncey,Franklin,and at least one other child born before 1850;)He worked as a collier, lived in Norfolk in 1850 and @248 Bradford Rd. in Cornwall Hollow in 1854, and, if the list Jeff Bailey compiled is correct, when added to mine, he fathered 11 children. (One of those is listed in Goshen VR as "illegitimate", at a date that would make him the 4th son of Albert H. and Harriet Bailey. I don't know what was going on there but I think there must have been some chaos. Neither this child nor Albert Jr. appear in the family on the 1850 census,but William and Esther (Dean) Bailey of Winchester have a son named Albert H. whose age matches up. And, in 1850, Albert and Harriet had moved from Canaan and were living in Norfolk next door to Sheldon and Lucretia (Bailey)Dean. Salmon Bailey,age 87, also lived with the Deans. Sheldon Dean was also a collier, as was Salmon Bailey,age 45,in the same small town. Our Albert gave his age as 30 at that time, making him the wrong age to be son to any of these Baileys, but I'm sure they are kin)Pvt. Albert H. b. 1819 served in the Union Army Co.G 2nd Heavy Artillery CT from 4Jan1864 to 12Jun1865. He d. 18Apr1898 age 80 and is bu. at Sedgewick Cemetery in Cornwall Hollow, CT. Harriet is not buried with him and I am still searching to find who she was and when/where she died. Lots of pieces, no puzzle yet. Since I live here in Litchfield Co. I research as often as I can. Would appreciate any info that you can add and will keep you up on anything new.Happy hunting! -belle
