Kitturah Stamps Ewalt Bailey, born February 13, 1799, at Paris, Kentucky, and died, as the result of a fall off a horse, near Monticello, Missouri, on April 2, 1855. She was the daughter of William Stamps II and Jane Shore Stamps.
Kitturah married Henry D. Ewalt in Bourbon County, Kentucky, November 20, 1820. After the death of Henry in 1846, she married Calvin H. Bailey.
Kitturah's older brother, William Stamps III, married Lucinda Davis, older sister of Jefferson Davis, the same Jeff Davis who became the Confederate President. Though Kitturah did not live to see the Civil War, six of her seven sons served as Confederate soldiers, and two of them died of wounds in that national tragedy. Kitturah and her husband owned a small plantation they called Calico Place which was located along Troublesome Creek outside Monticello. They were slaveholders.
