    Born 1829  Rockingham Co., North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    Gender Male

    • O.L. Bailey is listed as owning 24 slaves in the 1850 census
    Census 5 Jun 1860  Rockingham Co., North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    Address:
    Northern Division 
    • Four slaves are listed in the Northern Division of Rockingham county in households other than OL Bailey's, but he is noted as the owner. Looks like these people are contracted into the other households.
      In the home of David Osborn are a female age 25 and a female age 1.
      In the home of Samuel S Williams is a female age 11.
    Census 12 Jun 1860  Rockingham Co., North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    Address:
    Southern Division 
    • This appears to be O.L. Bailey's home. Here, he is listed as owning 17 slaves, one of whom is a fugitive from the state.

      Interestingly in the population schedule, while Otway's neighbors before and after him in the slave schedule appear. But Otway does not appear among them in the population schedule.
    Military 13 May 1862  Tulip, Dallas Co., Arkansas Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    joined for the war, Capt. James M. Daniels Co (Lamar Artillery) Texas Volunteers, 
    • 9 Texas Field Battery, also known as Lamar's Artillery, was formerly known as Capt. Daniel's Co. Texas Artillery, and as Daniels Battery. A lot of these units were part of the "Trans Mississippi Infantry" and had names that spanned Arkansas and Texas.
    Military 4 Jun 1862  Tulip, Dallas Co., Arkansas Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    enlisted, Co. F, Morgan's Regiment, Arkansas Infantry, 26th Arkansas Infantry, for 3 years or the term of the war 
    Military 21 Aug 1862  Little Rock, Pulaski Co., Arkansas Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    discharged on Surgeon's Certificate of disability and final statement given 
    • From this I might gather that O.L Bailey enlisted, was detached to a different organization, was discharged from that organization, and word might not have got back to his original unit.
    Military 31 Oct 1862  [5
    Detached to Daniel's Battery 
    Census 1870  Tulip, Dallas Co., Arkansas Find all individuals with events at this location  [6
    • In the 1870 census, Otway is listed with a wife, Laura, and three children, Pinck, Fannie, and Otway L. Additionally, in the household are a Daniel Harrison, age 21, and a Delilah Bailey, age 35, black, with her children. It looks like one child is listed as mulatto and one black. Since this is 1870, no relationship is provided. These could be a family that were previously slaves of the family. It would be worth checking the slave schedules.

      There are also several other Baileys living nearby. Check these against Otway Sr.'s will.
    Census 10 Jun 1880  Danville, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location  [7
    • Listed as a boarder.

      Is this really the right Otway? Or is this another.

  • Notes 
    • It appears that after the Civil War, Otway and Laura married. She died, maybe in childbirth. He then married her sister Martha (Mattie), who also seems to have died before he moved back to NC. In North Carolina, his children went to live with relatives.

      It appears that Otway moved west with other extended family members. He married a woman whose mother appears to be related to his mother. There are a number of Bethell, Watt, and Stubblefield families in Dallas County, Arkansas apparently with roots in North Carolina.

      The book Stubblefield : eight generations of a family in Rockingham & Caswell Counties, North Carolina & Calloway County, Kentucky ; including filial lines Bethell, Boaz, Harris, Holderby, Lawson, Johnston, Montgomery, Moore, Walton, Waters & Womack in the FHL / FHC includes Otway Bailey. Available online in a FHC.
