Ancestors of Mary Loretta Dailey

Generation No. 6

      32. (John) Dailey, born Bef. 1730 in possibly near Dublin, Ireland44; died in America. He married 33. unknown.

      33. unknown, born in Probably Ireland; died in America.

Notes for (John) Dailey:
I am unable to find a name for this Grandfather. He first appeared as "Peter", but, I have my doubts if that was his name. There is no evidence to support there was a Peter I and II and III at this time. I tried to advance the theory he was "John"- of the five known children of this man, the placement of the name "John" is correct for the old Irish way of naming children. The second born son of Mariah Maria Dailey and Jacob Wiley was "John", the first born son of Peter Dailey was "John", the first born son of Vincent Dailey was "John". That is the correct placement of the name in 3 out of 5- and I do not have the information for James or Owen. His children were first generation Irish-American and this generation would have been the most likely to follow tradition from the old country.

(John) Dailey came to America in 1752 and family lore persists that his son, James, was born at sea on the trip over.
Children of (John) Dailey and unknown are:
  16 i.   Peter Dailey, born Abt. 1753 in Pennsylvania; died February 17, 1804 in Ohio County, W. Virginia; married Mary Wiley Abt. 1786 in Pennsylvania.
  ii.   Mariah Maria Dailey, born 1750 in Northern Ireland; died in Green County, Pennsylvania; married (1) Jacob Wiley in Pennsylvania; married (2) Jacob Wiley in Pennsylvania; died 1810 in Green County, Pennsylvania.
  Notes for Mariah Maria Dailey:
This is Diane J.'s line. I met her searching for the Wiley "roots".

  iii.   James Dailey45, born 1752 in At sea-Atlantic Ocean45; died Bet. 1820 - 1830 in Monroe County, Ohio; married Delilah Smith December 29, 1802 in Belmont County, Ohio.
  Notes for James Dailey:
This is John McD and Kathy's line. His son, John, was one of the first to settle in Calais, Ohio. In the History of Calais. James' daughter, Margaret, was mentioned as one of the first born in the county.

Family history of a Dailey Ancestor born at sea has been passed down the lines of two of John Dailey's sons: John, Jr. who settled in Huntington County, Indiana and Vincent who eventually settled in Appanoose County, Iowa.

  iv.   Owen Dailey, born 1760; died 1818 in Gallatin, Kentucky; married Sarah F. Morris.
  Notes for Owen Dailey:
Gallatin, Kentucky is directly across the river from Switzerland County, Illinois. Owen had two known children, Rudd and Elenore. In my notes I have that Owen married "Betsy"- at this time I have no first hand knowledge of "Betsy" or "Sarah F. Morris"-- both these names Were acquired from other trees and are not substantiated. To this time I have not met a descendant of Owen Dailey- but, I am trying!

  v.   Vincent Dailey46, born 1765 in Washington County, Pennsylvania; died April 03, 1812 in Jefferson County, Ohio; married Anna Hart June 05, 1791 in Reason Station, Washington, Pennsylvania; born November 03, 1764.
  Notes for Vincent Dailey:
Vincent Dailey was killed in the War of 1812- died in Battle.

      34. Richard Wiley, born 1748. He married 35. Rachel VanMeter.

      35. Rachel VanMeter, born 1751; died 1801. She was the daughter of 70. Henry Sr. VanMeter and 71. Martha Moore.
Children of Richard Wiley and Rachel VanMeter are:

  ii.   Jacob Wiley47, died 1810 in Green County, Pennsylvania; married Mariah Maria Dailey in Pennsylvania; born 1750 in Northern Ireland; died in Green County, Pennsylvania.
  Notes for Mariah Maria Dailey:
This is Diane J.'s line. I met her searching for the Wiley "roots".

  iv.   Keziah Wiley47, born 1785; died April 16, 1816 in Green County, Pennsylvania; married William Anderson.

      48. John Goodwin, Sr.48, born March 14, 1730/31 in Chester county, Pennsylvania; died 1825 in Spencer County, Kentucky. He was the son of 96. Thomas Goodwin, Jr. and 97. Anne Jones. He married 49. Martha Heady 1770 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.
