  • Notes 
    • Hume Bailey was a devoted Union sympathizer during the Civil War. Since he was a widower with young sons, he was exempted by the Union army from service (Ft. Smith being a Union stronghold in an otherwise Confederate state). However, the Confederate army, when it moved into that part of Arkansas forced him to enlist on the threat of death. Susan Dickson says that he may have enlisted and then deserted at the first opportunity.

      In the compiled service records, there are two jackets for H.F. Bailey, but no firm places are listed and the service appears to have been short in the Confederate army in any case. More research is needed.

      Interestingly, there are a number of letters written to Hume F. Hill of Memphis, TN. These appear to be an uncle of Hume F. Bailey - the brother of his mother, perhaps.
