    Seeking mother of Amos Bailey, Sr

    Ethelena Persons Newbie

      Who is the mother of Amos Bailey, Sr., and who are his siblings and descendants?  Amos Bailey was born in Jasper Mississippi 08/22/1875 and he died approximately 1959, I believe in Mississippi. His father is George Bailey, born in Alabama in 1853 and George's family migrated to Mississippi when he was a minor, I believe. The records are confusing about who Amos's mother is and how many siblings he had, if any. I know Amos had at least 8 children, all with the surname Bailey/Baily most of whom, if not all were born in Honduras: Joshua, b: 08/02/1809; Leonore/Leolin/Leola, b: 04/21/1912; Daniel W., b: 08/12/1913; Amos Cecil, b: 10/12/1915;  Melvin, b: 10/2/1920; b: 10/12/1920 ; Melva/Melba, b: 10/12/1920, (Melvin and Melva/Melba were twins); Julia, b: 06/05/1924; Enrique/Henry/Sydney/Sidney, b: 08/23/1923.


      The mother of these children is Ethelena/Ethelyn/Ethel Hay Bailey born 08/01/1891 in Vera Cruz, Mexico and deceased 08/15/193, Hillsboro, Florida. While Ethelena Hay Bailey was born in Vera Cruz and birthed her children in Honduras, she was a U.S. Citizen and travelled to the United States on at least three occasions: 08/10/1925, aboard the #SS Yuma, from La Ceiba to New Orleans with Amos and their children; 07/01/1935 with four of her children, and, 08/03/1930 on aircraft with a possible relative, a 47 year old male, Iva Hay, from Aqua Caliente, B.C., Mexico landing in San Diego, California en route to Los Angeles, and last, aboard the #SS Delphia, from Roatan, Honduras to Tampa, Florida. The year Ethelena Hay and Amos Bailey, Sr.,were married is unknown and I have found no marriage records; I am interested in finding that document. Recently it came to my attention that Amos Sr., had more children, unknown to me. I am uncertain who these children are and whether they are the prodigy of Amos Bailey Sr., and Ethelena Hay Bailey. I have no information on their birth dates or birth locations, their surnames are Bailey/Baily as well: Bill Bailey, Cooleman Bailey, Doris and Dorothy Bailey (twins) and George Bailey.
