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.
William Jr. became a Reverend in 1888, and was known in the community as Rev.
William Bailey, Jr. - William partnered with another relative named Re. Charles S. Hughes
and pastored the majority of the African American churches throughout Nelson County.
Rev. Bailey served as pastor from 1889 to 1939.
Rev. Charles Hughes served from 1920 to 1960.
