Robert Driver Bagley was the son of John R. Bagley (son of Elisha Bagley and Sarah Frances Wilkins) and Martha Eliza Driver (daughter of Moses Driver and Sarah "Sally" Sumner), originally of North Carolina, presumably Chatham Co.

Children of R.D. and Donia include:

(1) John Henry

(2) William Thomas

(3) Martha "Mattie" Elizabeth

(4) James Christifer

(5) George Walter

(6) Charles "Charlie" Arthur

(7) Elisha Jarrett, incorrectly spelled on his tombstone as "Jared"

(9) Mary Eliza Jane Wilkins

(10) Bessie Reeves Bagley

Charles Arthur, married to Ada Arlene Pettus, was born 12 September 1878 in Lincoln County; he died 22 December 1962 and is buried in Beechwood.

Robert's mother (birthplace, NC) is living with them in the 1880 LCT census, where he has been incorrectly transcribed as A.G. Bagley. It is said Martha's middle name is actually Elizabeth.

Adapted from "Bagley Family Tales," compiled by Kaaren M. Perry:

Robert was a farmer, raised saddle horses, had a fine orchard, and raised bees...which produced much honey.

In 1871, his mother gave him some land in LCT. He sold it and moved to Marshall Co., TN.

He was a devoted member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He lived well and was a good provider.
