The daughter of Samuel Ferguson and Mary Jameson, granddaughter of John and Jane Erwin Jameson.
Sister of Sarah (who married Richard Bailey's brother, Reuben). Other siblings include: Samuel, Mary Jane, John, William, Thomas, Elizabeth Ferguson.
The wife of Richard Bailey, of Rock, WV; son of Richard Bailey and Elizabeth Belcher.
Isabel was the mother of Baileys born beyond the areas where her father and her father in law settled. Richard took Isabel farther into the undeveloped lands which became the communities of Rock, Sandlick, Montcalm, Lashmeet, etc. We can only imagine how wild and beautiful it must have been.
One parcel of land transferred by Richard and Isabel in 1837, 200 acres; "For natural love and affection" went to Joshua and Margaret Bailey Mooney of Giles county, Virginia (daughter & son-in-law).
Another 200 acres with personal property to Samuel Bailey, and the farm lands to Eli (sons). Previous to this, 86 acres, originally from Richard I, were transferred to George C. Bailey (nephew), and 50 acres were transferred to Harvey and John George (relationship not known, if any).
Richard's name is recorded in county deed books; sometimes Isabel's was also recorded.
Her children: Samuel, Richard III, Elizabeth Bailey Shrewsbury, Jamison, Mary Bailey Peters, Henry, Sarah Bailey Maxwell, John Bailey, Margaret Bailey Mooney, Eli Bailey.
--- Note from aye ain't. I have birth date as 21 Mar 1766, Fincastle county, Virginia (now, Tazewell county). Death date, 1839, at Rock. Est. marriage was about 1788- 1790, Tazewell county. Varying dates from varying sources, of course. Compilations of the Bailey family history from research of members of the family, the Walker and Ferguson families, various other historians, MUCH searching of vital records & comparing of lists of names/dates, Mercer county records, histories, geographical data*, transcriptions/photographs of Find a Grave members.
The frequent border changes of the varying counties, as (what is now) Mercer county evolved, are the reason several county names can be on records of individuals living at that time. The burning of courthouses added to the gaps in histories and the later burning of Princeton may have completely destroyed family records held in private homes as well. I believe some of the records that people have not been able to find were lost in the Giles courthouse fire.
The marriage bond of the first Richard & Elizabeth Belcher were burned in the Dale Parish records in the home of a clergyman.
There were multiple persons bearing the same names, and it is easy to be confused with the repeats of those in several generations - both male AND female first names.
The locations of the graves of John, Margaret, and Mary are still not known to me. Margaret's son has a memorial Ferdinand Cortez Mooney.
