Notes:  After his father's death, in about 1856, Bannister Royster Bailey was
living with the Hillary S. Gardner family and, along with two of his younger
brothers, appears with them on the 1860 Gordon Co GA census.

Bannister Royster Bailey served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War
from July 4, 1861, until March 17, 1865, as a Private in Company G of the 21st
Regiment of the GA Infantry.  He was taken prisoner at Strawsbury on September
19, 1864, and was confined at Point Lookout MD for 6 months.    A Confederate
marker was placed on his grave on May 6, 1990, by the Sons of Confederate
Veterans.

After the war, he returned home and married Harriett Emily Thedford.  The family
moved to TX in 1872, where they owned and farmed approximately 400 acres of
land near what is now Lake Weatherford.  

The Bannister Royster Bailey family attended the Clear Fork Baptist Church in the
Dicey Community, where he led the song service, was superintendent of the
Sunday School and the leader of the Sunday night prayer meetings.

on November 11, 1905.  She was b. August 9, 1878 MS and d. April 19, 1965.  
They had no children.
