My ancestor, John Bailey, was one of the early settlers of Tangipahoa Parish. He died in January 1872, and I am wondering what newspapers were being published in the area at that time.

I am trying to establish his exact birthdate and place; he was born in South Carolina. I've requested his NARA pension file for his War of 1812 service.

Thanks,
