It has not been determined when Richard Bailey came to America from
England. In September 1764 he sold his 100 acres of land which he had
bought from John Skelton in 1760 and moved with his family for the Black
Water River section of Bedford County. We do know that John Goolman
Davidson, an Irishman, born in Dublin, Ireland, a cooper by trade, from
which he was generally called and known as "Cooper Davidson," came with
his family from that part of the Valley of Virginia now known as
Rockbridge County, and with him came Richard Bailey and his family, from
the Blackwater section, then in Bedford, now in Franklin County,
Virginia, and settled in the year of 1780 at the Beaver Pond Spring, a
branch of Bluestone, now in Mercer County. A fort was built which was
called and known as the "Davidson-Bailey Fort," the marks of the
foundation of which may yet be seen near the residence of Mr. Harvey
Bailey just west of the Beaver Pond Creek. Both Davidson and Bailey had
considerable families, the later had eight sons and two daughters. In
his book "A History of the Middle New River Settlements and Contiguous
Territory" David E. Johnston indicates that Richard Bailey served as a
soldier in the American Army during the Revolutionary War; howeve
believed that he served as a spy for the American Army on the western
frontier at that time. These men as well as their sons and daughters,
were a brave and courageous people, and maintained their position on the
border at the settlement they had made from the day they came in 1780,
until the close of the Indian wars in 1795. Tradition indicates that he
traded a saddle blanket to the Indians for land around Bluefield, West
Virginia. He was one of the original settlers of Mercer County, Virginia
around 1780. According to Beverly E. Humphreys, a boulder that was used
at the Davidson-Bailey Fort has been erected at the Bluefield College to
mark the site.

Richard Bailey and Isham Belcher were among the group that migrated to
Franklin County, Virginia. The exact date of the migration is unknown.
Richard's father, James, wrote his will in February 1765. The following
September, Richard sold his land in Chesterfield and migrated to Bedford
County, the same records show Isham sold some land of Richard Belcher,
deceased, and left for Franklin County, Virginia. The earliest record of
james Bailey was in Henrico County, Virginia, where he was named in John
Nash's Sheriff's bond along with John and Richard Belcher. On November
1, 1760, Richard Bailey purchased 100 acres of land in the Skinquarter
area of Chesterfield
County, Virginia. In 1765, Richard Bailey sold his 100 acres and left
with his family for Franklin County, Virginia. He lived very close to
John and Richard Belcher.

According to Donna Beers, Richard Bailey died on July 6, 1812 in Beaver
Pond, New Field, Virginia.

James and his brother Benjamin remained in Chesterfield County,
Virginia. According to the 1783 Census James Bailey had seven whites in
his household

[NI5104] From Bailey - Coulter Website at

In 1728 Richard was a witness of a land transaction: Benjamin Hopkins to
Thomas Oliver. In 1836, Richard Belshar paid levy and clerk fees to the
promise for Richard Belshar, the balance of 338 pounds of tobacco. On
February 26, 1753, Richard Belcher sold to William Thompson, 100 acr
land for 20 pounds., sterling, 2 tracts, one plantation I live on, 100
acres; and another plantation where Wiliam Tanner lately lived.
Witnessed by John Nunnally, Michael Clay, and John Ward. Recorded on
April 5, 1753. In 1749, Richrd Belcher was mentined in Henry Clay's
will. In 1754, Richrd Belcher sold to Peter Blankenship, Amelia County
100 acres bounded by Sinquarter, William Gates, Horsepen Branch and
Belcher's old line. The Belcher Line was near the Chesterfield and
Amelia County Lines. Both counties are sometimes used as the Belcher's
residence....South of Skinquarter Road, 375 acres of land was granted to
Richard Belcher in 1754. In 1767 Isham Belcher, son of Richard Belecher,
sold the land of Richard Belcher, deceased. "William Clay, Executor."
Inventory of Richard Belcher July 16, 1763. In 1759, James Bailey, Jr.
bought 75 acres of land from Peter Daniel. This land is described as
adjoining John Skelton's land on the South side of Skinquarter Road.
This land was originally part of a patent of 375 acres granted to Richa
Belcher in 1754 and was the first piece of land owned by the Bailey
Family.. "The Story of Richard Bailey: Journey to the Mountains", page
168-190. Many descendants of the Bailey family carry the Belcher Line.

[NI5154] Other than the notation in the 1880 census, nothing is known of this "daug hter". It would seem that Harriette was too old to have had a daught er in 1867, but then again, according to this same census, Harriette was b orn in 1820 rather than 1811, making her 10 years old when James Martin w as born!

Jefferson Robinson(8) B.12 Feb 1804, probably in Currituck County NC, but
tradition says Mechlenburg County NC. First known child of Tully Robins on (7)
and Elizabeth Cowell. His father may have died when Jefferson was age 15 o r
younger. M. 16 Aug 1827, Martha T. Guffey, at age 23. U.S.1830 Census of
Rowan County NC (p. 438) lists "Roberson, Jefferson," age 26, two female s, one
son, and one daughter under age 5. One of the "females" is believed to ref er
to Jefferson's mother, Elizabeth Cowell, who was widowed again by 1830 a nd for
the last thirty-two years of her life lived in her son's home. Jefferson
Robinson was probably a tobacco farmer in Rowan County, which today lies
between Winston-Salem and Charlotte NC, some 350 miles west of Currituc k. In
1836 TJR migrated another 600 miles west to Gibson County TN, settling nea r
Yorkville, about north of Memphis near the Kentucky border and within 30 m iles
of the Mississippi River. Gibson County land records show that Jefferson
Robinson acquired on 6 May 1836, 200 acres for $1,000 and on 27 Jan 1848,
another 110 acres for $500. The last Tennessee home of Davy Crockett, fame d
scout, bear hunter, member of congress, and leader of a bunch of Tennessea ns
who helped defend the Alamo was 15 miles from Yorkville. Crockett's dea th was
about the time Jefferson Robinson and others from NC were arriving in Gibs on
County. See 1850 and 1860 Gibson County censuses. Jefferson Robinson's two
oldest sons went to Texas; both died there by 1860. See 28 May 1854 lett er by
Thomas Robinson in Mount Carmel, Smith County TX, to his parents. Five of
Jefferson Robinson's other sons served in the Confederate Army of Tennesse e,
13th Regiment, Company D. See 1864 letters to Jefferson Robinson written b y
his sons while in service. Jefferson Robinson's first wife died 12 Apr 184 0
in Gibson County following the birth on 19 Mar of her eighth child, Manlif f
Rease. Jefferson Robinson returned to North Carolina and brought back
Elizabeth Trout to Tennessee where they were married 31 Dec 1840 in Gibson
County. See marriage license and wedding certificate. Jefferson Robinson
fathered seven children by his second wife. He died 4 Sep 1865, at 61. His
grave is in the Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery, Yorkville, surrounded by
graves of his first wife, his mother, and seven children. A tinted photogr aph
dating from about 1860 shows Jefferson Robinson to have a prominent brow,
long, curly black hair falling to his shoulders, a receding hairline, larg e
ears, and clear blue eyes. The eyelids have what some call "the Robinson
droop." His jaw is quite strong, but in the likeness his lips are rather
pinched and unsmiling. A brief description of him, believed to have been
written by Manliff Rease Robinson, says he was called "Squire" by his

In 1830 I did not find a John HARKEY in Cabarrus Co., b ut I did find a Christianah, age 30-40, with 5 males ages 5-20 and wi th 4 females ages 0-15. The youngest child is a female aged 0-5. Als o, in 1840 (but looking no further than the census index), I did not fi nd a John, but I did find a Crissey HARKY" (age 40-50 on p5 and a Christi na HARKY age 40-50 p11). Then, in 1850, Christina is living with her daugh ter, Susannah McDANIEL. The absence of John but the presence of Christi na in 1830 and 1840 does suggest that John died much earlier than 1846. Al though no spring chicken, Christina would still have been of childbeari ng age in 1830, but by 1830 she had borne her last child."

"The name for Amelia Catherine Harkey Hartman came from her tombstone at U nion Lutheran Church in Rowan County. The stone actually says Mealy C Hart man wife of Adam. In no other record have I found Mealy. It is always Cath erine. Logic tells me that Mealy is Amelia and C is Catherine since all ot her records refer to her as Catherine."
