91st PA: George Bayley

George Bayley

Before the war

He was born on 2 February 1844, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to William Baley and Harriet [illegible family name]. [sources: date: 10; 2 (23 in 1864), 3 (23 in 1864), 11 (17 in 1860). place: 2, 3, 10, 11. parents: 10; see also 14]

In 1860, he was apparently living in ward 24, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with Harriet (presumably his mother), with William, Henry, Charles, Joseph, Isabella, and Mary (presumably his siblings), along with others. He was a laborer. [source: 11]

When he enlisted, he was a whip maker, and was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 2, 3]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 5-1/4 inches tall, and had a light complexion, blue eyes, and brown hair. [sources: 2 (5'5-1/4", light complexion, blue eyes, brown hair), 3 (5'7", light complexion, light eyes, blue hair)]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 28 January 1864. He was enlisted for one year, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Lane. He was mustered in as a private at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a private in company D. [sources: 1 (1864), 2 (1864), 3 (28 January 1865), 4 (1 Jan 64), 7 (28 Jan 65), 17, 18]

On 14 August 1864, he was reported regained from desertion. [source: 5]

He mustered out with his company on 10 July 1865. He was a private, in company D. [sources: 1, 2, 4, 7, 17, 18]

After the war

On 9 October 1865, he and others published an ad in the Philadelphia Inquirer supporting Jacob E Ridgway for State Senator in the second district. [source: 8]

He appears to have married Amanda [unknown family name]. She was born in 1847/48, in Pennsylvania. They seem to have had at least these children:

[source: 12]

In 1870, he may be the George Bailey living with Amanda (apparently his wife), and Harriet, Mary, George, and Henry (presumably their children). He was living in the same building as Harriet (apparently his mother), and William, Charles, Joseph, Mary, and George (apparently siblings and a nephew). He was a laborer, and owned $200 in personal property. [source: 12]

In 1880, he wa apparently living at 1433 28th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his mother Harriet, siblings William, Harry, and Charles, and (probable children) George and Mary, along with a boarder. He was a pavier [?] (or perhaps a whipmaker). [sources: 13, 16]

On 2 February 1883, his mother, Harriet Bailey, died, at 2211 Virginia Street, ward 15, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She died of chronic endocarditis with valvular disease. She was 70 years old, and was born in England. On 6 February 1883, she was buried, in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [sources: 14, 15]

In 1890, he was living at 1841 Callowhill Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 4]

On 11 April 1898, he applied successfully from Pennsylvania for a pension. [sources: 6, 7]

He again applied for a pension on 4 March 1907. [source: 7]

He died on 10 October 1927, in Glenolden [Delaware County], Pennsylvania. He was a laborer. He died of myocarditis, [and] endocarditist [?], with chronic interstitial nephritis [?] contributing. On 14 October 1927, he was buried, in Mt Moriah Cemetery. [sources: 7 (Folcroft), 9, 10]
