Judy: I really need any help you can give me regarding the Acord family. I'm trying to locate the "Bailey" family who raised my father, William Acord. There's got to be some connection between the Bailey family that raised my father and the Acords. From what my father William shared with me, his mother died when he was about 2-3 years of age and he was raised by the Baileys. His half sisters were at least 15-20 years older than him -- old enough to know the circumstances of his birth. When he became of age they informed him who his mother (Eliza) and father (William Acord) were. William's mother was Eliza Jane Plumley and his half sisters were Rosie (Hall) Cozart and Alice (Hall) King. They all shared the same mother, Eliza (Plumley) Hall. I'm looking at the possibility of William Talley Acord because of the timeframe my father was born....1904 or 1906. He suspects he was born out of wedlock. His mother gave birth to him while living at the "Poor House". I didn't start digging into my father's past until recently -- he passed away 20 years ago in 1983 so I don't have any detailed information about him. If you can direct me on how to go about searching I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for your help!
