BAILEY/MCCORKLE/HARPER:Is any one doing research on the Bailey family. I am interested in George and Mary Bailey who are listed in the l850 Census as caring for 4 McCorkle children--James, Robert Sarah and George. Ellis Harper took in Thomas Mc corkle Jr as a worker and Matthew Harper took Margaret McCorkle 20 a help. Robert Mccorkle at the time was listed with Baileys was listed as 15 and a worker he later married a Sidney Bailey. I'm looking for a lead into the McCorkle family. I know Thomas McCorkle Sr died around 1850 probably leading to the placement of his children. The McCorkle children most all purchased land in Pope Co. with land Warrants. In a later census Mary Bailey was listed as mother to Robert, a widower. Any information appreciated.
