  • Name Peter Cock Bailey 
    Born 9 Oct 1765  Henrico Co., Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • BIRTH: IGI 8207004,98

      BIRTH: IGI reports his birth as 9 Oct 1762. Dorman reports it as 9 Oct 1765.
    Gender Male 
    Military Abt 1780  Granville Co., North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    Private, Granville Co. Militia 
    • DAR-PATRIOT: Pvt, NC, SC, PNSR

      MILITARY: Peter served during the Revolutionary War in the Granville Co., North Carolina militia.
    Misc 7 Aug 1780  Charlotte Co., Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    Guardian reports account 
    • Roger Cock Bailey, guardian to Peter Bailey, son of the said Roger, reports account.
      Charlotte County Order Book 5, pages 222, 223
    Misc 1 Oct 1781  Charlotte Co., Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    Guardianship 
    • Francis Barnes appointed guardian to Peter Cock Bailey, son of Roger Cock Bailey, in place of the said Roger.
      Charlotte County Order Book 5 (1780-1784), pages 21, 22

      If Francis Barnes is appointed guardian for Peter Cock Bailey, then that presumably means that Roger Cock Bailey has died and that Peter is less than 14. But, this doesn't really make sense.

      By this point, Peter has already been in the military and should be 16 at least. Maybe this is a secondary appointment and he really was selected. I think this original record needs to be investigated.

      However, if Peter had inherited property from one of his grandparents, then a guardian would have had to be appointed to protect his rights.

  • Notes 
    • Peter Bailey supposedly died in KY or TN. He lived for some time in Montgomery Co, TN and then across the border into Kentucky with a daughter near present day Ft. Campbell.

      In the 1820 Mecklenburg census, Peter Bailey is listed as Capt Peter Bailey and has 59 slaves, a very wealthy man. Worth looking into.
