1). Downing.ged From the research of Gertrude E. Lomas Manley, Bohemia, NY Joel was the first child born to Abraham Baily and Phebe Carpenter Baily. He was born on 2 March 3 mo 1790. His full sister, Hannah H. Baily, was born three years later. Joel s father was an entrepreneur and medical doctor. When Joel was born his father and two other partners were in the iron business in Sussex County, NJ. Therefore, it is assumed that Joel was born in New Jersey, possibly Andover. His mother died when Joel was very young. She died in New Jersey. We assum she died in childbirth or shortly after the birth of Hannah. His father moved after 1794 from NJ to Chester county, PA. We do not know who took care of the children during thisinterval. When Joel was 12 years old, his father married Joel s aunt, his mother s sister. This leaves us to wonder if she was the one who was caring for the two children. Joel s father was active politically and was away from home at times Eventually to this marriage were born four more children giving Joel three step sisters and one step brother. Two weeks before his 26th birthday, on 15 Feb 1816, Joel married 18 year old Ann D. Kennedy. Ann was born on 22 Dec 1797. Her father was Samuel Kennedy her mother was Thomazine Downing Kennedy. They resided in Marshallton, Chester co., PA, where Joel was a merchant. Joe and Ann had three children. Their forst born was a daughter, Phebe Ann Baily, who was born in West Chester on 4 May 1817. Their second was Richard Downing Baily, b. 20 Jan 1818. Their third was Samuel Kennedy Baily, b. 12 Feb 1820. Joel C. Baily died on 289 May 1868. He was 78 years old. His obituary appeared in the Village Record newspaper on May 30, 1868. It reads Death Notice BAILY At his residence in Marshallton, on the 28th inst. JOEL C. BAILY, in the 79th year of his age.
