Daniel Louis Bailey & Selina Chloe Eaton
Home ] Up ]


DANIEL LOUIS "LOUIE" BAILEY was born in Ohio. According to the 1880 Census, both of his parents were born in Virginia. In 1910 & 1920 he said that they were both born in Ohio. His family moved to Michigan where he married SELINA CHLOE EATON. SELINA was born in Michigan and her parents were born in New York.

Several years after their marriage, LOUIE and his family along with SELINA's parents & brother Josh Eaton, moved to Lonoke County, Arkansas where all their children lived and died.

SELINA's maternal Grandparents were Salisbury's. The family story goes that the Salisbury's originally were from the British Isles. A Grandfather Salisbury returned to England to claim the family inheritance. The family later learned that his ship sank on the way back to America with the inheritance and Grandfather aboard.

Like all the Baileys, LOUIE was a Methodist. Lonoke County, Arkansas has a deed of land from Louis Bailey to J. V. Ferguson, August 15, 1904, Book 52, page 510. This is son Louis Arthur Bailey and wife Jennie.
