Extract from "History of Winnebago County and Hancock County Iowa" Vol. II, Pioneer Publishing Company, Chicago, 1917, page 21:
Lambert B. Bailey, of Garner, is one of the venerable citizens of Hancock county, having celebrated the eightieth anniversary of his birth on the 24th of January, 1917. He was born in Granville, Licking county, Ohio, a son of John A. and Nancy A. (Washbond) Bailey, who in June, 1864, came to Hancock county, Iowa, with their two sons, Lambert B. and Rolla E. The latter was killed by lightning July 28, 1876, while working in a harvest field.
Lambert B. Bailey attended the public schools and an academy of Granville, Ohio, in the acquirement of his education and during his active business life devoted his time and attention to school teaching and to farming. He was a young man of twenty-seven years when he came to Iowa and throughout the intervening period he has lived in Hancock county, his time and energies being devoted to general agricultural pursuits.
Previous to this time Mr. Bailey had attempted to join the army, enlisting for service in the Twenty-first Wisconsin Infantry. He was rejected on account of physical disability and in the fall of 1863 he was drafted for service, but was again rejected for the same reason, so that he never had an opportunity to go to the front. In 1866 he was called to public service in Hancock county, being elected to the position of county recorder, in which he served for two years. In November, 1868, he was elected clerk of the courts and served in that position for two years. In October, 1870, he was elected county recorder, was reelected in 1872 and at each biennial election up to and including 1884, so that he served altogether in that office for eighteen years, a notable period for length of service and characterized as well by marked fidelity to duty. No higher testimonial of his faithfulness can be given than the fact that he was again and again chosen for the office. He has always given his political support to the republican party since its organization, yet has never been an active partisan.
In November, 1864, in Waushara county, Wisconsin, Mr. Bailey was married to Miss Frances A. Ocain, a daughter of Isaac and Cynthia Ocain. Their children are: Charles A., who married Mamie Tierney; Elwin R., who married Rena Cuppett; and George L., who wedded Grace Rosecrans.
The religious faith of the family is that of the Congregational church and fraternally Mr. Bailey is a Mason. He took the degrees of the lodge in 1868, of the chapter in 1884, and in the latter year also became a Knight Templar. He is widely and favorably known in Hancock county, where he has made his home for home than a half century and where he has so long filled public office. His fellow townsmen bear testimony to his worth and ability and no history of the county would be complete without mention of him.

He married Frances Amelia Ocain 19 Nov 1864 in Waushara County, Wisconsin.
