From The History of Fulton County IL.
{Quotes Chas. C. Chapman & Co., 1879}

Evan BAILEY, deceased, was born in
Brooke Co. W. Va., in 1805, son of
Thomas BAILEY, who was born in East
Pennsylvania and was a farmer.

Evan married Elizabeth MCHENRY, daughter
of James MCHENRY of Ireland. In 1836 they
emigrated to Vermont Twp, settling on a piece
of timbered land which he'd previously purchased,
where he found but an acre and a half cleared,
with a cabin on it. Here he worked and prospered
and obtained a good reputation as a citizen.

In 1868 he was elected County Treasurer. He was
killed by a runaway July 15, 1878. He left a
widow, now in her 71st year, and 10 children,
4 having formerly died.
