    1. [BAYLISS] Help Keep This List Active
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. We just wanted to encourage you all to make use of this list in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di

    1. [BAYLISS] Re: Hattie L. Bayliss 1879-1960 & Eddy Gridley
    2. Patti Daniello
    3. Hi Peter, I would love to help you but I don’t know where the Bayless name is from in my tree. For the longest time it was thought to be my GG grandmother’s maiden name. However that was not the case. I believe that Bayless was the surname of my grandfather’s father. The only thing I know is that my grandfather was left at an orphanage by his aunt and taken out by his brothers a few years later. At the time his Aunt left him at the orphanage, she told them that his mother was dead and his father was living and his name was Mr. Bayless. I find no birth record for my grandfather anywhere I have looked, DC, MD, or VA. This has been a big brick wall for me for a long time. I had my uncle do a y dna test and so far nothing. Sorry I cannot be of more help to you. Patti Patti > On May 24, 2019, at 11:18 AM, <peterpool@comcast.net> <peterpool@comcast.net> wrote: > > The Bayliss name is very remote in my tree. Hattie L.

    2. The Bayliss name is very remote in my tree. Hattie L. Bayliss 1879-1960 marr 1895 at Franklin Co. IA to Eddy B. Gridley 1874-1966. They had five children. I suspect that my details of Hattie's parents, Thomas Henry Bayliss, Sr. & Mary Ann Whitely, and Hattie's two younger siblings came from Jim Bayliss, 11102 N. 76th St., Peoria, AZ 623-412-9139, jimb6803@aol.com <mailto:jimb6803@aol.com> Recent efforts to follow thru with him have failed and he may have died. Hattie L. Bayliss was a sister of Jim's grandfather, Thomas Henry Bayliss, Jr. b. 1884. The 3rd child of Thomas Sr. & Mary was Alice Sarah Bayliss b. 1882. My connection to Hattie Bayliss is most obscure and thru her husband. I would love to learn more about Eddy & Hattie's children and their desc. down to today.

His parents were believe john BAYLISS and Elizabeth Smith, married in the same church. I can trak his father/male line back several generations through birth, but not much on female side, and there are so many BAYLISS/Baylis/Bayless/ names that they are too common and I'm kind of stuck. I have a tree on ancestry.com "BAYLISS-Crary" family tree. You can search for Benjamin BAYLISS l777, and look backwards. Since that town not too small, maybe they share grandfather? Or is it a big town/ thought small? But have not been, so I don't know! anything you can provide would be a great help. I was able to find marriage and birth records for Benjamins father, grandfather and great grandfather but no women??

Meanwhile I thought to try to add to what John found in the 1871 canadian census. 1871 census for Canada was recording the status as of 2nd April 1871. Not having world access I can't see the full record but, if I have the right one, James BAYLIS was said to be 3 months old. Therefore he was born 2nd January or up to a month earlier than that. Ergo the family would have travelled to Canada in Jan to March 1871. So if it was in England James' birth should be registered in last quarter of 1870 or first quarter of 1871. Births could be registered up to six weeks after the birth. However I don't see any obvious candidates for the bith of James using Freebmd. There are some possibles but it could be that the child was born during the crossing. This stuff below is just wild speculation. Needs the fathers of Thomas and Mary to be identified from the 1863 marriage certifictae or some other source. If we assume that Thomas may have been younger than he was saying then he could be the Thomas BAYLIS born c. 1844 in Han(d)borough.

I'm now in the process of transferring everything relating to me to my own private tree lest I clog his up. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the Baylisses were added by him, with sources cited, so naturally I didn't think to question it. (Not to mention that he's been at this way longer than me.)

So Jeff Stockinger has got his couples mixed up and the 1863 marriage identified by John is the one you want. The 1880 census has an Elizabeth age 11 born in England and this may be her Births Apr-Jun 1870 BAYLIS Elizabeth Banbury 3a 734 The next child in the 1880 census is James age 9 born Canada so they presumably emigrated between April 1870 and 1871. I don't have access to the ships passenger lists. I cant find them in the UK 1871 census so expect they had left by then. I can't pin down Thomas BAYLISS in the census records of 1861 and before though the article in the Oxford Journal of Sat. 4th April 1857 could be him.
