I have a copy of the Marriage Bond for the Commonwealth of Kentucky for Joshua Bailey (age 26) and Nancy C. Colegrove (age 16) dated 19 Mar 1861. The only information on her parents is that father b in U.S. and mother b in U.S. I have been unable to locate anything further for this ancestor.I have just begun work on my mother's paternal line.
1 Nancy C. Colegrove b 3 Sep 1843 Greenup, KY d 14 Sep 1926 Greenup, KY m 19 Mar 1861 Joshua Bailey b 27 Dec 1837 Greenup, KY d 29 Jun 1916 Greenup Co., KY
2 Samuel T. Bailey b Jan 1862 Greenup, KY d 26 Jun 1927 m 30 Dec 1886 Margaret H Smith b 13 Dec 1866 Greeup, KY d 2 Sep 1923 Greeup, KY
3 Lucilla (Lucy) Bailey b Sep 1890 Greenup, KY d abt 1954 Cincinnati, OH m abt 1910 Maurice L Stephenson b 4 Mar 1884 Greenup, KY d 26 Jun 1948 Portsmouth, Scioto, OH (They divorced. I do not know if she remarried.I only know of her date of death because my mother remembers the year and that she was living with her son at the time of her death)
4 Raymond L Stephenson b 24 Oct 1912 Portsmouth, Scioto, OH d 1 Jan 1967 Cincinnati, OH m unknown dateAnne Lee Taylor b 18 Jul 1917 Lucasville, Scioto, OH d 30 Jun 1997 Ashland, KY ( Raymond and Anne Lee were divorced and I never met my grandfather) Unfortunately, divorce often disconnects families and makes the branches of family trees difficult to climb. :(
I would appreciate any information that would help me learn more about this branch of my family tree. From reading these posts, it apprears that I can make connections; but,I am not sure. Would it be possible that Nancy was the daughter of William (George) Colegrove and Elizabeth Mitchell?Thus the Colegrove line would be: Nancy > Wm.George > Jeremiah > Francis > Francis?
