Bailey Family of Wingina, Nelson, Virginia
(African American line)

This is just an introduction to the Bailey family connection. We'll lead in, from the Mayo family line.

Thomas William Mayo, Jr., and Ella "Russie" Brown's son Thomas "Tom" Grover Mayo, born 1915 married Annie "Kathleen" Wright, born 1913. Annie's first husband was Buford Bailey, born 1905. This is just one of the connections to the Bailey line. Buford's parents were Johnathan "John" Bailey, and Pauline. Buford had 3 other siblings. They were Mattie, Eugene, and Erthylene.

Johnathan, was the son of William Bailey,Sr., and Martha Scott. Johnathan, had 3 other siblings. They were Aaron, Ned, and William Jr.

From here, we'll focus on the youngest son, William Bailey, Jr. He was born in 1865. He married Millie Reynolds, and had 5 children. They were Lillian, Elizabeth, Eva, William the 3rd, and Lucy.
