The son of Richard and Elizabeth Bailey, husband of Sarah Ferguson, one of the Bailey family members who may have been buried in the plot of Richard I in unmarked graves.

At the time of the interments of Richard and his family, Reuben was the owner of the land where this Bailey plot is located.
Estimated date of marriage, 1794. Reuben is mentioned in the histories of these families, and in the petitioning of the Virginia governor along with his brothers and other persons. He stood as witness for John Davidson in John's pension applications, for service in the Revolutionary War.

There are eight persons known to have been living here and assumed buried in this family cemetery.
The number is an approximation.
The interments cannot be proven, but are based on research of descendents.
Only the grave of Richard has a marker. The marker was placed by the John Chapman Chapter, of Bluefield, of the Daughters of the American Revolution; and is a government marker- it sits approximately in the center of the fenced enclosure. The land is included in a tract owned by private businessmen.

The marker for his family, image above, is not visible from the highway.
It has been placed off Route 460; one must turn toward the farmhouse at the traffic light at the corner of Route 460 and Leatherwood Lane.
The image has been contributed by Mr. Jeff Brown. Many thanks to him.
