I am trying to do a Family Tree for my Daughter and Grandchildren. I just
recently found out that her Great-grandfather was born in Delhi, Delaware
County, New York.
He was born April 22, 1841, to Mr. & Mrs. Horace Bailey. (I do not know his
Mother's name.) He was born George W. Bailey. He was adopted by the Thompson
family and his name changed to Charles Thompson, after the deaths of his
I would like to get any information, that I possibly can, on Mr. & Mrs.
Horace Bailey. I am sure that they are both buried in Delhi someplace. I
would also like to learn anything that I can about the Thompson family who
adopted him. Their full names and what the circumstances of the adoption and
the deaths of Mr. & Mrs. Bailey were.
I know that Charles grew into a fine, upstanding young man. He enlisted in
the Civil War in 1861, in New York. He migrated to Kansas, then to Missouri
(where me met and married Mary Ann Hess), and then to Roseau County,
Minnesota in 1902. He passed away there on November 3, 1932.
If any one has any information that may help in my search, please Email me at:
Please do not send me any attachments, as I will not open them. I live in
Northern California and it is impossible for me to make the trip to New York
to do this search. Thank you for your time, and God Bless you.
