Notes for William Fleming Bailey:
William Fleming Bailey, Senior, is recognized by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Application for the N.S.D.A.R., under National Number 462 469, (Computer Code Number Al3-039) was submitted by Maryline Cauthen Westenhaver in Auburn, Alabama. The application was verified and approved January 5, 1976.

Maryline Cauthen Westenhaver's Lineage Follows:

Maryline Cauthen Edward Francis Cauthen + Kate Garland Luttrell John Canaday Cauthen + Gazarine Gilliam Hammond George Cauthen + Nancy Bailey William Fleming Bailey, Senior + Molley Sprunt James Sprunt

The proof that William Bailey was a Revolutionary soldier is established by a voucher # 1331, dated first of September 1784, for 31 pounds and nine shillings in the North Carolina Archives showing he was paid in Halifax District of which Warren County was a part, and this has been accepted by N.S.D.A.R. Bute County had been divided in 1778, (a year after William's marriage) into Warren and Franklin Counties.

A monument to William Fleming Bailey's Revolutionary Service and Patriotism stands with other Patriots monuments at Salem Cemetery in Heath Springs, Lancaster County, S.C., on Highway 521. A dedication ceremony was held in May 1976 for the Revolutionary Patriots of Lancaster County at Salem Cemetery. William Bailey fought in Revolutionary battles in the State of North Carolina. William's actual grave site is at the Mackey/Walker Cemetery on Hoke Road off of MT. Carmel Campground Road.

William Fleming Bailey, Senior, was born about 1755. In 1771 he was 16 years of age or over and was living with his father, James Bailey, in Bute (Warren) County, North Carolina which adjoins the Virginia line in the eastern part of the state. He married Molley Sprunt in Bute County on 9 July 1777 (original marriage bond within N.C. Archives), served in the Revolutionary War in the North Carolina Continental Line, and migrated to Lancaster County, South Carolina shortly after the War and settled on Cedar Creek.

Three hundred and thirty acres were surveyed for William Bailey on the 3rd of January 1788. Situate in the District of Camden on the Drains and Runs of Cedar Creek North East Side of the Catawba River bounding South West on said William Baileys + William Stevens Land, South West on William Robinson's Land + Vacant Land, North West on Jon Simpson and Isaac Stewarts Land , North East on Bailey Flemings Land. On June 2nd 1788, he paid seven pounds for the tract of land, witness by Thomas Pinckney. Chimney and foundation remains of the Bailey home site can be found along Cedar Creek, on Walker Road which is between Stoneboro Road(Hwy. 522) and MT. Carmel Campground Road.

William Bailey, Sr. had a younger brother, Kanneday (or Cannaday) Bailey, Sr. who also came to Lancaster County before 1790. This is established in a land suit in Lancaster County in 1842.

His father-in-law, James Sprunt also migrated to Lancaster County before 1790. James Sprunt's service as a Patriot has been accepted by the National Society of Daughters of American Revolution (N.S.D.A.R.). on National Number 462 469, also submitted by Maryline Cauthen Westenhaver. His patriotic service is shown by North Carolina voucher # 1787 issued at Halifax District on September 15, 1781. He bought land on Cedar Creek, Lancaster County in 1792, died in Kershaw County before August 23, 1806. Other daughters of James Sprunt were wives of Wm. Stevens, Joseph Graves + John Hood.

Other men named Wm. Bailey were in southern and western North Carolina. The proof that William Bailey, Senior , of Lancaster County, S.C. was the William Bailey of Warren County, N.C. is that William Bailey signed as a legatee after his father-in-law, James Sprunt, died in Kershaw County.

William Bailey, Sr. had 4 sons - the youngest (Kennerdy William) moved to Alabama after 1833 while the other 3 sons remained in Lancaster County, each having a number of sons. Kenneday Bailey, Sr. also had a number of sons as shown by census records, of whom Kanneday Bailey, Jr. remained in Lancaster County. Duplication of names among the Bailey cousins requires careful attention.
