Civil War Union Army Officer. Daniel, only son and only child of Matthew Bailey. His life has been mostly spent as a merchant and a farmer. He inherited the homestead settled by his great-grandfather, upon which he resides, and manages in connection with his store. He was commissioned by Governor 0lden, June 10, 1862, lieutenant-colonel of the Fourth Regiment New Jersey militia, and Sept. 19, 1862, he was commissioned captain of Company F, Twenty-seventh Regiment New Jersey Volunteers, and served in the Army of the Potomac, in the department of Kentucky, at the draft rendezvous, and at Jeffersonville, Ind., in command of the United States arsenal. At the close of the war, he was on the staff of Gen. Brisbin. Captain Bailey is an enterprising, thoroughgoing business man. He has added to the homestead property and now owns some seven hundred acres, and was largely interested from 1868 to 1872 in the milk and creamery business. He is a director of the State Line Railway Company, and built and owns the telegraph-line extending from Glenwood to Pine Island, now operated by the Western Union. He is postmaster at Glenwood, a commissioner of deeds for Sussex County, succeeded his father as trustee of the Baptist Church there, and has been secretary of the cemetery board since its organization. In 1862 he built a parsonage for the Baptist Church at Glenwood, which the society enjoys at a small cost. In 1878, Capt. Bailey was nominated for member of Assembly, but on account of the minority of his party (Republican) he was defeated. He is a man well informed in matters of local and State legislation, and alive to the best interests of the community where he resides. In 1879, Capt. Bailey organized the "Sussex Battery," consisting of twenty men, and two bronze twelve-pounders, one of which was purchased from the United States government, the other from the Park Association, it being one of the one hundred donated by the government for a memorial statue to Gen. Meade. This battery was organized to celebrate the centennial of the battle of Minisink in 1879; the second service was at the Grand Army encampment at Skillman, N.J., in 1879; its third service was at the unveiling of the soldiers’ monument at Middletown, N.Y., the same year; the fourth, at the reception of Gen. Kilpatrick at Franklin, N.J.; the fifth, the Fourth-of-July salutes in 1880; the sixth, at the Grand Army encampment at Bordentown, N.J., in 1880; and the seventh was at the reception of Senator Blame and Col. Ingersoll at Deckertown, in the fall of 1880. On all these occasions the Sussex Battery fired every salute. Captain Bailey’s wife, Anne Elizabeth, is an only daughter of Peter J. and Delia (Ryerson) Brown, and granddaughter of Nicholas Ryerson, of Glenwood. She was born at Paterson, N.J., April 1, 1841. Their children are Matthew Grant, Anne Delia, Sarah May, and Bessie Munson. Matthew Bailey inherited his father’s lands, and during his life made additions to it. He lived a quiet and unostentatious life as a farmer, respected and esteemed by all who knew him. He was one of the first trustees, a constituent member and clerk of the Glenwood Baptist Church, and his house was the home of the ministers of that denomination. In early life he was much interested in military matters, and belonged to Col. Kilpatrick’s regiment. He died April 20, 1860, and was buried by the side of his father. His widow married for her second husband James Thompson, now deceased, and after her marriage became a member of the Presbyterian Church at Amity, of which her husband was an elder. She survives in 1881, and resides with her son.
