    • bequeathed one feather bed and furniture and trunk (her grandmothers), three negroes - Frank, Chenee, Sooky
    Died Aft 1830  Tennessee Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • I am not sure where this death date came from. But, in litigation against Peter in the 1830s, Sarah is mentioned over and over as a plaintiff. I believe that she was certainly alive into the mid-1830s. This needs to be detailed out.

      In particular, deeds made in 1830 (Deed book 24, Mecklenburg County, p. 108) Peter Bailey and Sarah his wife sell land.

      By the 1840 census, it appears that Peter is living with Elizabeth M.A. Bailey and her husband, but there is no older woman in the home. So, if this is Peter, then Sarah isn't there and has probably died.

  • Notes 
    • Somewhere a death date of 23 Jan 1822 was attached to Sarah, along with a place of Virginia.

      However she is listed in a deed in 1830 selling land with Peter. I suspect she moved with him to Tennessee. However, I also believe she died before he did.
