The following supplied by Gregory Square,

Harlow was born the illegitimate son of Lamenta Huggins. His father has not been identified, but there are several Bailey's living in Litchfield County, CT, from 1790 - 1800.

Harlow served as a drummer musician in the War of 1812 along the Canadian border. He served in Captain Wheeler's Company, 3rd Regiment, of Colonel Edward Fifield's Vermont Militia, for a period of 3 months and 16 days.

From the Painesville TELEGRAPH, Feb. 19, 1880 page 3, transcribed by Ray Julian and submitted by Sally Malone:
Died on Wednesday, Feb. 11, 1880 at one o’clock p.m., at his late residence in Madison village, Lake county, Ohio, HARLOW BAILY, age 87 years, 7 months, 22 days. Esq. Baily was born in Winstead, Connecticut, June 19, 1792, and moved to Vermont in 1804. He moved from there to Unionville, Lake county, Ohio, in the fall of 1819, and resided there 21 years. When moving to Ohio he suffered more than the usual amount of fatigue as well as loss - losing a valuable horse on the first day. He moved from Unionville to Brunswick, Mo,. and resided there three years, when he returned to Madison and spent a few years on what is called the Dock Road, and then he came to Madison Village where he has since resided. He was married to Apphia B. Emory, at Lindon Vt., Dec. 5th, 1816, and they have lived together 63 years, 2 months, and 6 days. She still survives her husband and is in the full enjoyment of all her faculties. They have four children living - three sons and one daughter; several grand-children and four great-grand-children. He was a soldier of the war in 1812, serving on the Canadian frontier and drew a pension. He united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1822, since which time he has been a consistent Christian member. His house was ever the minister's home. He was no sectarian, but was ready to fellowship with all who bore with impress of the master. While in Unionville he was depended upon to take the lead in all public matters, particularly those pertaining to the interests of the church of his choice. He was four times elected justice of the peace, but move to Missouri before the expiration of the fourth term. He was once elected justice here, but on account of age refused a re-election. He was firm in his political convictions, first as a Whig and then a Republican, and always sympathized with the oppressed. But while he was firm in his own convictions he never obtruded himself upon others, believing in perfect freedom of opinion.
Socially, he was the companion and friend of all; even the children were well pleased when noticed by Grampa Bailey, which he seldom failed to do. If he had an enemy in the world his friends never knew it, and whenever he heard others spoken lightly of, it was his habit to apologize for them. His great age only endeared him the more to his friends. For the last few years he seemed to be ripening for the grave, and in class meeting he would speak of the great change he must soon make, and often in raptures of his prospects in the near future though the merits of his ever faithful master, Jesus Christ. His friends mourn their, not his, loss; for him, to die is gain, while we loose [sic] his society here.
