Old Pine Chuch Cemetery
Mrs Bea,
Just a note to explain you have mixed up the newer "St Mary's Pine Church Cemetery" with the "Old Pine Church Cemetery" and you are making duplicates of the burials in the wrong cemetery. The Old Pine Church Cemetery is a few hundred yards down the road from the St Mary's Pine Church Cemetery and was the site of the original church and cemetery. My husband and I made a complete survey of it and posted it in 2010.
Please read the monument...Those names on the memorial marked with two stars were tombstones moved to Grace Cemetery. The names marked with one star were moved to the new St Mary's Cemetery. Names with no star are folks who had no tombstone or the tombstone has deteriorated. Please go to the site and read the history and you will understand. After meeting with the deacon of St Mary's Pine Church he explained the history of the two sites and the moving of some of the stones to the newer graveyard. Copy and paste the link below, it will take you to the Old Pine Church Cemetery or search for "Old Pine Church Cemetery.

Here is an exerpt...
Old Pine Church Cemetery
This Old Pine Church cemetery memorial is located in a pasture field on the right side of the lane a few hundred yards south from the present St. Mary's Pine Church Cemetery. This memorial marks the original location of the Old Pine Church and cemetery prior to the present. Many of the tombstones were moved to the St Mary's Pine Church Cemetery or Grace Cemetery but the graves remain. The names of the known interred here are inscribed on the back of the memorial. CMHS

No problem - I wish I had more info. I think her father had a first wife who is the mother of the two brothers. Don't know where she is!

Ann Baggett (Methodist Protestant Cemetery)
Hello Mrs. Bee,

I am looking for an Ann Baggett (nee Chatham) who would have been born around the time the Ann Baggett married to Townsend Baggett was born.

The Ann Baggett in my family tree was married to Alexander Baggett, however. They definitely have ties to Alexandria, Virginia, as their son Alexander Jr. was living there with his family in 1840.

I was wondering if you know anything about an Alexander Baggett living in Alexandria, or if the Ann Baggett you've posted here could possibly be Ann Chatham, wife of Alexander Baggett.

Many thanks and best wishes,
Elizabeth Pedrotti

Thomas Bayley #50072213
Mrs. Bee,

I am Lisa Daniels Smith, I have been researching my family and came across your memorial for Thomas Bayley (Also listed as Bailey).
I found information about his birth in a book entitled: History of Montville, Connecticut Formerly the North Parish of New London from 1640 to 1896
Compiled and Arranged by Henry A. Baker (One of my great relatives)on page 493 it says that Thomas Bailey was born in 1616 in England. I will paste it here for you. His parents are listed along with his wife and children.

Thomas Bailey, born about 1616, son of William Bailey and Mary ; came to New London in 1651; married 10 Jan., 1655, Lydia, daughter of James Redfield. The same month a grant was made to him by the townsmen of New London, "with the advice and consent of Mr. Winthrop," of a lot lying north of Mr. Winthrop's land upon the cast side of
the river, upon which he settled. William Bailey came from England in the brig "Prosperous”
to Virginia in 1620, aged 41 years. Mary, his wife, came in the " George " in 1621, aged 31 years, with her son,Thomas, aged 4 years. William Bailey was an owner of land in Virginia in 1626. Nicholas Bailey, a brother, arrived
in the “Jonathan" in 1620, and Amy, his wife, in the "Marmaduke" in 1621. THOMAS BAILEY died in 1675 at New London, now Groton. His widow afterwards married, in 1676, William
Thorne of Dorsetshire, England.
2. Mary, b. 11 Feb., 1656; m. Andrew Davis.
3. Thomas, b. 5 March, 1659.
4. John, b. April, 1661; m. Elizabeth .
5. William, b. 17 April, 1664.
6. James, b. 26 Sept., 1666.
7. Joseph, b. about 1668.
8. Lydia, b. about 1670; m. Andrew Lester, Jr.
Pg 493

I realize there is a part that is conflicting which is where he died.

Which I found another source: Genealogical History of the Redfield family of the United States by John Howard Redfield 1860
Which states as you have listed; that he was slain by Indians during the combat at Bloody Brook. I will paste it here for you.
William Redfin or Redfen, or Redfyn, or Redfine, as it is variously rendered in the uncertain orthography of the early records, was probably one of (he early emigrants from England to the Colony of Massachusetts…..
…..His family at this time consisted of his wife Rebecca, daughters Lydia, Rebecca and Judith, and son James. Lydia was married in the following year to Thomas Bayley of New London
pg 6
Second Generation.
Lydia Redfin, or Redfield, eldest daughter of William (1), was married at New London, January 10, 1655, to Thomas Bayley of that town.
He was a soldier under Lothrop, and was slain by the Indians in the combat at Bloody Brook, Mass., September 18, 1675. His widow married, in 1676,
William Thorne from Dorsetshire, Old England. It is not known whether
she had any children by the latter.)
By first husband.
1. MARY BAYLEY, born February 14, 1656/7; married before
1684, Andrew Davis of New London.
2. THOMAS BAYLEY, born March 5, 1658/9"| Each left
3. JOHN BAYLEY, born April —, 1661. } I descendants.
4. WILLIAM BAYLEY, born April 17, 1664.
P. JAMES BAYLEY, born Sept. 26, 1666.
* See Appendix B.
The entry of this marriage upon the record! of New London, reads thus :"1665,
Thomas Bayley was marryed to Lydia the daughter of James Redfin, the 10th of January." That there is a clerical error here, and that for James we should read William, is evident from the following considerations: Thomas Bayley had a grant of land made him in 1657. In the description of its bounds, it is said to lie “over against his father’s land at Moheagan." This undoubtedly means father-in-law, for frequent instances occur in the same records where the word father is thus used. No other Bayley had any grant of lands at that time. Moreover when this Bayley grant was afterwards sold, it is described as being nigh the Redfield land. But no James Redfield or Redfin had any grant of lands recorded in New London, nor does his name appear as buyer or seller, grantor or grantee of any lands within its bounds. This correction, which is suggested by Miss Caulkins, disposes of the supposed elder James Redfield alluded to in her History of New London, p. 279, and adds greatly to the probability that James, the son of William Redfin, is identical with the James Redfield, afterwards recorded in other places.

page 7
And I also have Mrs. Caulkin's History of New London page 290 & 291
Mrs Caulkin's History of New London, pp. 290, 291

Thomas Bayley1 died about 1675.
Thomas Bayley married, January 10th, 1655-6, Lydia, daughter of James Redfield. The same month a grant was made to him by the townsmen, " with the advice and consent of Mr. Winthrop," of a lot
lying north of Mr. Winthrop's land, upon the east side of the river. Relinquishing his house in the town plot, he settled on this grant
1 His descendants uniformly write the name Bailey. which by subsequent additions expanded into a farm.
His children were:
1. Mary, born February 14th, 1656-7 ; married Andrew Davis.
2. Thomas, born March 5th, 1658-9.
3. John, born in April, 1661.
4. William, born April 17th, 1664.
5. James, born September 26th, 1666.
6. Joseph.
7. Lydia.
Lydia, relict of Thomas Bayley, married in 1676, William Thorne, of Dorsetshire, old England.

I hope this helps with my relative. Also I saw that a Redfield has sent flowers which also leads me to believe that this is him.

Thank you, Lisa Daniels Smith

Kaus tombstone at St. Mary's in Alexandria
Hello Mrs. Bee!

I left this message to Bob as well on here since you both appear famniliar with St. Mary's Cemetary in Alexandira.

My great-grandparents John and Catherine Kaus are both buried here. However despite them both being interred there (died in the 1990s) I have been informed by family members their death dates may not be on their tombstone. I notice their tombstone has not been archived by you however this may be due to the fact that tombstone's lack of death dates falsey indicates they are still living. Do you remember seeing this tombstone or happen to have any photographs of it? It seems to be a rather small cemetery from what I see and can remember as a child, so I was hoping it stuck out in your head. I believe it is one tombstone that almost looks like two put together. Any information would be appreciated.
