Alexander Hamilton Bailey
Birth: Aug. 14, 1817
Death: Apr. 20, 1874

US Congressman. He studied law at Princeton College, where he graduated and was admitted to the bar in 1837. From 1840 to 1842 he was examiner in chancery of Greene County, New York. He also served as justice of the peace in the town of Catskill, Greene County, New York, for four years. In 1849 he was elected to the New York State Assembly from Greene County on the Republican ticket. From 1851 to 1855 he served as judge of Greene County. In 1856 Judge Bailey moved to Rome, Oneida County, New York and continued the practice of law. He served as a member of the New York State Senate, 19th District, from 1862 to 1865. On November 30, 1867 he was elected to the Fortieth Congress to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Roscoe Conkling, and was re-elected to the Forty-first Congress, serving to March 3, 1871, representing New York's 21st. District in the United State House of Representatives. In the Forty-first Congress, Judge Bailey served as Chairman of the Committee on Expenditures in the Department of State. He did not run for renomination in 1870. In 1871 he was elected judge of the Oneida County Court for a term of six years and served until his death. Judge Bailey was considered not only an honorable man but one of the few men in public life who was an honest man, a man of intergrity and principle. (bio by: Tombstone Hunter)
