Bailey Anderson, Sr
Birth: Nov. 13, 1753
Stafford County
Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 1, 1840
Elysian Fields
Harrison County
Texas, USA

My ggggg grandfather, Bailey Anderson, was the son of John Anderson and Sarah Carney. About 1760 he moved with them to Newberry Dist., SC. He married Mary Delilah (--?--)about 1770 in Ninety Six Dist., SC. (Some researchers have speculated that her maiden name was Wyatt, but there is no proof for this speculation.) In 1776, he volunteered as a private in the South Carolina Militia for service in the Revolutionary War and saw service in Georgia, Virginia, and the Carolinas, fighting Indians and the British, scouting and patrolling. About 1779 he moved to the Long Island on the Holston River. He participated in Colonel Richardson's campaign against the Cherokees at Reedy River, Colonel Christian's campaign against the Cherokees, the Battle of Musgrove's Mill, the first Siege of Augusta, the Battle of Black Stocks and the Siege of Ninety Six. His father and two of his brothers were killed in the conflict. About 1795, Bailey Anderson moved to Warren County, Kentucky, where he served in the Kentucky State Legislature from 1800 to 1802.
In 1805, Bailey Anderson migrated to Warrick Co., IN to became one of the first settlers. Anderson, one of the original Townships of Warrick County, was named after Bailey Anderson. The first official account of any court being held in Warrick County is found in a dilapidated old book in the Clerk's office. This court was held at the house of Bailey Anderson, near the mouth of Cyprus Creek, on the 18th of October 1813, and entitled "The Court of Common Pleas." He served as Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in Warrick County for several years. Bailey Anderson remained in Warrick County until 1817 when he moved to Texas.
He migrated to Clear Creek, Indian Territory, on the Red River, about 1818. In 1820, when U. S soldiers came from Fort Smith, Arkansas Territory, to evict the squatters from Indian Territory, Anderson and his family went to Arkansas Territory, but returned to Texas about 1821 as permanent settlers at Elysian Fields, in present Harrison County, Texas.
