4). Ray Downing 7). Ray Downing
1). Downing.ged From the genealogical files of Gertrude E. Trudi Lomas Manley, Bohemia, NY Richard was the first of his siblings to marry. He was 23 when he married his cousin, Ann Eliza Carpenter, on 18 November 1841. We do not know her age or where they were married. We assume they were married in Bradford, Chester county, PA. They resided in West Bradford, Chester county, PA. The 1842 West Bradford township census lists Richard Downing Baily as a cabinet maker. On his 21st birthday, Richard was given a small handmade beaded purse as a present. On one side the beads spelled out 1839. On the other were the initials R D B. On the inside in this inscription presented to Richard D. Baily on his 21st birthday, by his affectionate and grateful cousin, Ann Eliza Carpenter . This purse is currently in the possession of Olivia Lowrance, his great granddaughter.
