A Note from Jim @ LeeHouse:
Cousin John Goldsmith is doing a teriffic job at finding possible errors in our JLX GEDCOM.  But, he needs help in correcting possible erronious data.  I ask that you help by picking at least one item, and try to figure out what the correct data is.  Please e-mail John if you have an answer, and I'll post the correction here, correct the master GEDCOM, and remove it from the question list.  Remember, this is a "Team" effort.    =Jim=

We are all a team on this.  If I hadn't been told about this web site, I would have lost countless hours researching the same info.  I am trying to do my part & be a helper not a downloader.  This web site has saved me countless hours at the library.  Hats off to cousin Jim for making this possible.  I would not even know how to start a web page, much less maintain it.  Cousin Jim needs a pat on the back & maybe some donations (money or help in his web site) so it will benefit us all.  Please forward this to whomever you please.  A million thanks, Cousin Jim, from Cousin John.

  • Carl Bailey born ca 1835?  He is the child that died on Nancy's return from Texas after her husband died [bef 12 May 1838].  An ACTON man went & got her. The child died between Texas & Alabama.

  • Helen E. Bailey born ca 1838.  (Census lists Al. as place of birth; this could be an error, as well as birth year.  Nancy would have been pregnant on her return trip & it would fit.  Or Helen was born before 1838 in Texas & left with the family.  More research needed).  Helen married Henry J.

  • *Discussion:
    According to the supplement to the Johnston, Lang, Lee, & Long book, Elizabeth was not a daughter of Capt. Thos.  She also could not have been a daughter of Mary GRIFFIN (m1), because Mary died before Elizabeth was born.  She might have been the daughter of Mary Bryan (m2), but she was born a month before the wedding.  The next child (Thos. Jr.) was born 10 mo's later.  If the wedding date is wrong, and should be earlier, then Elizabeth would fit in.  Nicholas was about 3 when his mother died, and Capt. Thos. would probably have marr'd about a year after that.  This would place the wedding about 1759/60, rather than 1761 as given.  Has anyone got the marr'g record for Capt. Thos & Mary BRYAN?  How about some comments from the rest of you out there?
    By the same source, Eleanor was also not a daughter of Capt. Thos., and not even a LEE.  Since we have no marr'g or desc's listed for her, it makes little difference to the data, and I suggest removing her from the list.  (Jim - K6HIO)
