From a 1903 DAR Magazine inquiry, trying to establish service in the Revolutionary War. No response is found.....
Jacob Bailey of Long Island.
He was a tanner and furnished leather for the soldiers.
His wife was Bathsheba Brush.
They moved to Delaware Co., N. Y.
Their children were:
1: Hannah, married . Beardsley
2: John, married Hannah Brush
3: Freelove, married William Teed
4: Phebe, married Amos Woolsey
5: Doshea, married Benjamin Barlow
6: Polly, married Aaron Gregory
7: Nancy, married John Briggs
—H. M. G.
Source: Daughters of the American Revolution magazine
Published:1903, Volumes 23-24, an inquiry, page 151.
This early list is obviously taken from an old family Bible or family records. The author of the "Inquiry" - HMG- is undoubtedly Helen Martha Gregory b 1859 d 1927, daughter of James Orlando Gregory and great granddaughter of Jacob Bailey. Helen was a College Professor and High School history teacher for many years and a noted member of the DAR*. The accuracy, is undeniable, as six out of the seven children are proven independently, with the correct spouses and descendants.
*Helen's Great grandfather, Abijah Gregory (b 1757 - d 1806) served in the Revolution as a private.
These families pretty much all began in Delhi, NY. As they move there around 1794.
