History of Fulton County, Illinois; Chas. C. Chapman & Co., Peoria, Illinois, 1879, page 906-907, Vermont Township

Evan Bailey, deceased, was born in Brooke county, W. Va., in 1805, son of Thomas Bailey, who was born in East Pennsylvania and was a farmer. Evan married Elizabeth McHenry, daughter of James McHenry, of Ireland. In 1836 they emigrated to Vermont township, settling on a piece of timbered land which he had previously purchased, where he found but an acre and a half cleared, with a cabin on it. Here he worked and prospered and obtained a good reputation as a citizen. In 1868 he was elected County Treasurer. He was killed by a runaway July 15, 1878. He left a widow, now in her 71st year, and 10 children, 4 having formerly died.
