Elsie Taylor Bailey
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1864
Mercer County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Jul. 24, 1926
Mercer County
West Virginia, USA

Daughter of John and Mary Frances Hartwell Taylor of Mercer county, WV. She was the sister of James Wesley, Nancy E, Andrew J, Sawyers, John Thomas, George W. and Newton Lee Taylor. Note carefully her birthdate - she must have been conceived in 1863, likely in early summer, during the civil war.
Her name is variously entered as Alice or Ailcy or Alcy E. It may have been Elizabeth, with Elsie as the nickname, as her brother had Elsie on her death record.
She married Nathan Bailey on 20 Dec 1883, by the ledger entry for Mercer county. He may have been the Nathanial Bailey living in McDowell county in 1920, in this census his wife is entered as Elsie A.
Informant on her death record was her brother, James.*
I have added her name as it appears on this. Her address given was McComas, and her birth place Montcalm. Her age, 62 y, 4 m, 7 d. Arrangements by Mercer Funeral Home of Montcalm.
The interment place listed is Goodwill on the death certificate for Elsie, another record lists Crumpler.
Ten years elapsed between the deaths of Elsie and Nathan, as he survived her, they may well have different burial places. By earlier accounts and transcriptions there were no markers for Bailey family members at the Windmill Gap location.
This death certificate clearly says "Goodwill"- Unknown if there is a marker for her grave or which graveyard or otherwise, is correct (in progress). She is thought to have been buried in a family graveyard with siblings (not her brother James', however, listed as the Taylor cemetery at Montcalm); we are trying to determine the location. Graves were removed from some graveyards prior to destruction of the areas by mining.
I have had an indication from a lady that a stone she saw may be the one for Elsie - I hope to have further knowledge of this in future and will amend when possible.
