Ann Smith and Joseph Bailey History

In 1790, Penelope Bailey was a maid on a farm in Avebury, Wiltshire, England. The owner of the farm was named Joseph Brown (born in Avebury in 1765). Penelope and Joseph had a child out of wedlock, named Joseph, who kept his motherís last name, and was named Joseph Bailey. Later, Penelope married John Watts and had two girls. (Joseph Bailey was born in England). Joseph Bailey joined the English army when he was 17 years old, in 1807. He served in the Channel Islands, France, and Ireland; then went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. There he met Ann Smith (born October, 1800 at Charlottstown, Prince Edwards Isle, Canada) and they were married in July of 1818. Ann was the daughter of Joseph Smith and Catherine Anderson. Three children were born to Joseph and Ann there, then at the end of 1823, the Regiment and the Baileys were transferred to Emerskillen and Templemoor, Ireland, where 2 more children were born to Joseph and Ann. Joseph served in Ireland until 1830, then went to Chatham, England, where he was discharged in August, 1830. There another child was born to Joseph and Ann. Then the family moved to Bath, Somersetshire, England, where 3 more sons were born to them. One of these was George Brown Bailey. Joseph Bailey died in November, 1850, at Chatham, England, 60 years old. Ann Smith Bailey, now a widow, joined the Church around 1851, and saved money to emigrate, which she did in March 1855, arriving in Utah in October, 1855. With her came 2 of her children and a nephew. They lived with her son George Brown Bailey and his wife Elizabeth until after the family left the Jordan River Narrows. Then she and her son and daughter moved to Spanish Fork and bought a farm there. They lived in a dugout in the cliffs on the north bank of the Spanish Fork River. But then her son, Reuben, accidentally shot himself and died, so George and Elizabeth and family came to Spanish Fork to help out on the farm. But Indian troubles became so bad they had to move out of Spanish For, and Ann moved to Lake Town, Rich County, Utah. There Ann Smith Bailey lived until she died. She had 5 girls and 4 boys, 4 of whom died, which must have been times of great sadness for her.
