Absolutely thrilled to find this web site. William Harrison Tramel is my great-great grandfater. His son, Elijah Tramel is my great grandfather, and his son, William Jasper Tramel is my grandfather. My Mother, Vennie Tramel Nelson, is the daughter of William Jasper. My Mother started the genealogy in our family and I have known about William Harrison for a long time, but never had a photo of him and his siblings. I understand that there is a Tennesse Tramel reunion every year. When is the reunion? Thanks for adding to my genealogy...pictures are great.

My mother was Lora Mae Joines, born in Possum Hollow October 16, 1902. I was delighted to find photos of Foster and Hudson Bailiff at this site. Hudson was my mother's childhood sweetheart, and she always spoke fondly of him. I do not have all my maternal info at hand, but I am researching Joines, Smith, Bain, and Hendrixson. I would enjoy hearing from anyone researching these lines or anyone who knew Hudson and his family. This site is a jewel!

The new additions look really great Kevin. Thanks for keeping it up to date and new. I'm looking for my great Uncle, Wiliam Daniel Bailiff Noblesville Ind.Is his last known address. Brother was David Thomas Bailiff. Mother and Father were William Merton Bailiff (Died in Civil War prison)The mother of William (great uncle) was Margeret Jane Weddle. William was born in Orange Co. Va. Dec.10 ,1862 Married one Charity Payne. Died around 1934. I belive there was a split in the family. Nothing more is mentioned of him I belive if there were any children they would be in the Indiana area. He fathered a least two children by other women when married to my Great Aunt. Any help would be accepted. J C Bailiff

I believe I have a picture of Norma Jean Bates Mother. It does not belong to me. I aquired it when I bought out a storage unit in TN, and it was in one of the boxes along with more recent family photos I believe to be the Bates family. This one is much older prob. 1920's. Picture of Charlie and Susie Bates, says they had 8 children. Also Susie (Susan) was 1/8 Cherokee Indian. Does this sound like a link to your family tree? Thanks. I hate to throw pic away if I can find someone who might have a link to it!

Hi I stumbled onto this webpage via ancestry.com when I was looking up some ancestors. I found Amanda and Cyrus Guyer on a family tree that was there her mother was Fidelia Bailiff. Anyway Cyrus is a so many great uncle of mine. I live close to the Bailiff Cemetery in West York, Il. I have been taking pictures of some of the stones up there and have seen a few of your Bailiff ancestors. If you are interested in some of the pics you can email me and I will get them to you asap. By the way this is a great website you all have here !

I am wondering if you are having another family reunion in 2003 or 2004. I am a descendant of Jacob Christian Bailiff. My grandfather was Theodore R. Bailiff, Sr. and his sister was named Maude. Maude wrote poetry and I am putting some of her poetry to music and I would love to perform at one of your reunions. I was asked to sing at the last reunion but I wasn't able to because of prior commitments. Please email me at melanie@mris.com. This is my new email address.

Comments:Just discovered the Bailiff website. My wife is from Alamance County. Her Grandfather was Thomas Baker Bailey. His father was David Bailiff. I don't know why Thomas changed it from Bailiff to Bailey, although one of his brothers kept it Bailiff. David's father was John Bailiff, son of Thomas Bailiff and Elizabeth Baker. John was married to a Mary. I think her surname was Ray, but I am not positive. An Isaac Ray 79, lived with them in Alamance County on the 1860 census, which I think is her father.
My wife's family stills lives in Alamance.

Your wife is apparently my father's second cousin. Her father, Thomas Bailiff, was the son of my father's aunt, Edith Irene Sport.

If you or your wife have any interest in information about Edith, please feel free to contact me at the email address listed.

I had not known of your site before so I was surprised at all of the Bain family there as well as others who are part of DeKalb and Warren Co legacy. I think you have done a first class job on your site.
My great grandmother was Sinah Bain, daughter of Henry Bain and Mary Boland. My gg grandmother was Leah Catherine Green, daughter of Wiseman Green. In my ancestors from that area are included the Glenns, Greens, Bains, Boyds, Cantrells,
Womacks, Atnips, etc.
I am an active researcher of those names from that area and welcome all correspondence.

found it very interesting that there are Bailiffs in
England, I was under the impression that we were Baileys and
the name was changed to Bailiff after coming to the Americas
in the early days of our great country. Maybe the roots to
the tree are more direct than I thought. You English
Bailiffs need to let us know if any of your relation came to
the Americas in the 1600s - 1700s // we got here somehow ??

Comments:Hello from the Pacific Northwest! The photos were an
absolutely wonderful end to the Thanksgiving holiday! I am
greatgrandaughter of William Daniel Oliver and Martha Elma
Bayliff 3/20/1868-3/2/1954. ( Their daughter Maude Rebecca
was my grandmother who died in childbirth, I never knew
her) William and Martha raised my mother Mildred until she
was older in age. William Bailiff was father to Martha and
her mother was Rebecca Coffin. William's father was Daniel
and his mother was Eliza Ann French. Because of the early
death of my grandmother, we have very little on my mothers
side of the family. My mother is dark skinned, black hair
and hazel eyes, as was her mother. She has told us her
mother was French Canadian Indian. Any info would be
greatly appreciated.

changed, but he wasn't sure what it was, but he thought it
might be Bailiff. Your note that the Bailiff family came
from Chester County, PA and is listed in the tax lists of
1740's-1760's gives me another place to look. Thanks for

Comments:While looking for the surname Bentley, I came upon your
website. My great great grandfather was John "Jack"
Bentley, Jr. he married Catherine Walker they lived in
Barbour Co., Al. In 1868 he was in Brazil in the Confederat
colony that was made up of unsatified Rebels. My
grandmother never made contact with him again although mail
was sent from each. Does anyone know anything about
John,Jr.or John Sr. I search surnames, Bentley, Walker,
Roberts, Fuqua, Clements, Chafin, Griffin, and Warr. Will
love to share with anyone. Thanks for help if possible.
Sincerely, Jeane.
