Longevity Sketch of Richard Bailey from the Saturday, July 23, 1881 Hartwell Sun Newspaper by P. E. Bean: "Richard Bailey is 92 years of age, and was born in Lancaster district, SC, but moved to what is now Hart County in 1845, and has lived here ever since. He enjoys excellent health for one so old; in fact, to illustrate, his son went to see him a few days since, and asked him how he was. The old veteran replied "I never felt better in my life or enjoyed better health than right now." Mr. Bailey can boast of one thing which is a great pity more cannot boast of and that is he never had a fuss or quarrel in his life and if he has an enemy he doesn't know it."
