Descendants of Joseph Bailey
Generation No. 1
1. JOSEPH2 BAILEY (UNKNOWN1). He married PATSY.
Notes for JOSEPH BAILEY:
Joseph, John and William Bailey were among Kentucky's early settlers. Tradition indicated that Joseph Bailey came into the meadows of Licking and traded a pair of buckskins and a rifle gun to all of Gun Creek and part of Puncheon and that teh Gun Creek name was derived from this transaction. We have found that Joseph Bailey did own other lands for he deeded one of his sons, Rev. Wallace Bailey, land on the Short Fork of Rockhouse Fork of Burning Fork in Magoffin County, Kentucky.
It would seem that the Bailey's followed the same migration route of so many of our people, settling in teh New River section of Virginia, after landing on teh coasts of the Carolinas. Lee Cuonty, Virginia was their home for a time, before some hardy members of the family spilled over into the wilderness that was to become Eastern Kentucky.
The 1810 Floyd County Kentucky census lists Joseph Bailey as being age 45 and up with seven children ranging in age from under ten to 16 to 26. During the January term of court in 1811 of Floyd County Joseph Bailey was ordered to help mark a road from the Salt Lick of Middle Creek to Mason Williams.
There is evidence that a Mason Williams owned lands in the vicinity of present Salyersville, KY so the road that Joseph Bailey helped mark was what became Rt. 114 or the present Mountain Parkway extension between Salyersville and Prestonsburg.
The November term of Floyd County court in 1811 lists a Joseph Bailey as receiving bounty due on "wolf scalps". This would indicate that Joseph was a hunter as well as a road surveyor. For the July term of court in 1815, Joseph was appointed "Surveyor of the road from the Burning Springs to where the road leaves the last fork." It doesn't indicate whether it was east or west of the Burning Springs, a natural oil and/or gas seepage that was encountered by the early pioneers which was set aflame and used to dry apples and other uses were found for this natural phenomenon.
Children of JOSEPH BAILEY and PATSY are:
i. BARBARA3 BAILEY, m. HUGH PATRICK, 1812.

vi. WALLACE BAILEY. Notes for WALLACE BAILEY:
Rev. Bailey received permission to perform the rites of matrimony on aa April 1836 and Henry C. Harris and Elijah Prater went his bond for 500 pounds sterling. Wallace Bailey probably performed more marriages than any other preacher in our area. Rev. Bailey was clerk, then pastor of the Burning Springs Church in what is now Salyersville, KY. The present congregation still holds him in high esteem and his picture still hangs above the pulpit in this old church.

v. SAMUEL BAILEY, b. 1822, Kentucky; d. March 24, 1896; m. NANCY RUNYON, Bef. 1843.
Notes for SAMUEL BAILEY:
Samuel and his two brothers married three sisters by the name of Runyon. Reatha Bailey Shepherd tells: Family tradition says the sisters were half Indian and half Carpenter. I was told this by two different decendants: "a farmer by the name of Erve Carpenter had five daughters. He found an indian boy in his barn one day and tamed him and kept him in his home. The boy was taught to be like the white man. The boy ended up marrying one of the five daughters and they had children. Three of these children were the Runyon girls who married the Bailey brothers: John married Catherine: Joseph married Jennie: and Sam married Nancy. In 1840 census is Runyon living next door to Fielden Carpenter. Fielden is the ancestor of the eastern Kentucky Carpenters and since he died shortly after 1850, it may be that people have forgotten the first name of the Carpenter in the story.
