  • Notes 
    • (Research):One source states "Served in the Revolutionary War as a soldier."

      Another source states "Thomas Bailey enlisted in Louisa Co in the Spring of 1778.... He was a member of Gen. Washington's Life Guard.

      Note; The Life Guard was an elite troop of Virginia soldiers guarding General Washington at his stone-built headquarters. It was assumed that Virginia colonists would be most loyal to the general, himself a Virginian. These fighters formed the life guard; they were the first disciplined in an American manual of arms and trained for the rejuvenated attack force.

      The children of Thomas Bailey and Nancy Gentry are listed in several places as this being their order of birth, however, it does not appear to be right.

      DAR ID No. 43525 states that he served in the Fourth Virginia regiment as private under Capt. Thomas Ridley.
