Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in history. Since a young age I wanted to know more about my own roots. Because of the internet, information is readily available. For example my aunt told me years ago that no one remembered my Great Great Grand Father's name (she was in her 80's at the time). But she did remember that he lived in Birmingham Alabama and that he was a Judge. So with that I looked through census information and legal cases from the period (finding a link between my Great Grand Father's name and Joab). I was able to piece together his biography.

I have so far found that the Baguley name of England became Bagley when Peter Bagley came to Virginia in 1645.
My line stayed in Virginia for 4 generations then settled in North Carolina, then Georgia, then Alabama about 1810 for 2 generations. After the Civil War my line settled in Texas for 4 generations.

RE: S.A.R.
Yes, I understand. If I have it correct, your dad died in 2006 and is memorial #16023508 and
not #35095623. Or do I have that backwards.

I'm the Arlington SAR Registrar and I work with the Historian researching our past members. We seek to properly identify them as former members on our website at

If you choose, would you pleae provide more information or a better picture?

Thanks,; John Anderson

Elizabeth Bagley
Hello Joe,

I have a question about your memorial for Elizabeth Bagley in Covington Co. AL Hopewell Cemetery. My dad visited the cemetery last week and photographed several graves. They all had ties to my ggggf Dread Bagley who was married to Elizabeth Jones. Dread remarried after Elizabeth's death and is buried in Magnolia Cemetery. All the trees I looked at on Ancestry have that Elizabeth's death date the same as that on the grave stone. Just wondered if you had reason to believe that Elizabeth was married to Isaiah and not Dread.

My married name is Bagley. My husband comes from Texas as well. I'm trying to see if you and he are connected. His great great GF was Martin Bagley b:1850 in Ireland, came to Louisiana in 1865 and became a Sugar Plantation owner along with his Brother Timothy. Martin married a woman named Rosa Lyons. After both men had passed away, their families split, Timothy Bagleys family went to Texas and Martins remained in LA, with later generations eventually making their way to FL. And TX. I have had my husbands DNA done thru Family Tree and I'm told he is part of the Orlando Bagley branch but, not the group that made their way to Utah. I would love to get more info, if you wouldn't mind. Thanks.

I have the original marriage license for Eugene Smith and Lillie Weatherred from Hill County. The County Clerk transferred all licenses that had not been picked up to the library for distribution. Lillie Weatherred is my 2nd cousin 2 times removed. I picked it up because I didn't want it lost or destroyed. I will be happy to mail it to you if you are interested.

Hello! I am doing some research and wondering if you have found an Alfred Bagley in your lineage. He was born in about 1889.

Hi Coston Cousin,

Thanks for the great photo!!!!

Found you by chance when looking over your father's memorial. I'm the current Registrar and Historian for the TXSSAR Arlington Chapter and am curious if it was you or your father or both that was a member of our chapter? Please reply.

Thanks, John Anderson

T.J. White
Isaiah Bagley and Elizabeth White
Hi Joe,

My name is T.J. (Terry) White, and I believe we may possibly be related. My 5th great grandfather Jacob "Jake" White Jr. (1772-1861) purchased 470 acres on Leatherwood Creek, Franklin County, Ga., from your ancestor, Isaiah Bagley (wife Elizabeth White), on 17 November 1810. (Franklin Co. Deed Book T, Pages 202-203) Also, on November 1st of that same year (1810), Jacob White Jr. named his newborn son "Samuel Isaiah White," probably after two men who were his neighbors at that time, Samuel Bolling and your Isaiah Bagley. I am strongly suspecting that Jacob White Jr. may have been a brother-in-law to your ancestor Isaiah Bagley.

There was another connection, however: an Isaac Brewer of Talladega County, Ala., in his 1846 Revolutionary War pension application (see: ) mentioned that during the war, he served with, among others, men named "Henry Bagley" (your ancestor) and "Jacob and Andy White" (my ancestors). That Jacob White was Jacob Sr., and may have been the step-father, and not the biological father, of my ancestor Jacob "Jake" White Jr., since recent DNA testing has conclusively proven that Jacob Jr. in fact came from the same genetic family as that Isaac Brewer! Henry Bagley was a neighbor in Chatham County, NC of that Jacob White Sr. (who shows up in a few deeds in Chatham County in the 1780s, as well as the 1790 Federal Census there.)

I am curious to know if you have any source(s) for the statement that Isaiah's wife Elizabeth was a "White" before marriage. If she was indeed a "White," she may well have been a daughter or other relative of that Jacob White Sr. and his wife Mary (they showed up in later records in Franklin County, Georgia, until about 1813).

RE: Old Elyton Cemetary-- Judge Joab Bagley
Dear Joe:

I am just now finding your message. My mother died in March and I have not been on for a long while. Tomorrow is the 3 year anniversary of my dad's death so I came to look at him and found your message.

The next time I am headed to B'ham, I will see if I can take a detour for you. I am not that familiar with Birmingham but will do the best I can. I wonder why no one is responding for you. That is very unusual. My apologies that it has taken so long to respond.

Warm regards,

Kathy Smith

Sorry to take so long in making this transfer. I've not been able to "play" on my computer the past couple of months. Am so glad to be back doing genealogy and Findagrave.
