James Edwards of De Leon, TX. is searching for information on his great grandfather, Thomas Emmett Bailey, born in Wood County, TX., 13 November, 1884. “I have found that Thomas had at least 1 sister, Sally Annie Bailey born 1876 in Texas, not sure where. I know that Thomas lived in Anderson Co., Precinct 1 and was a foreman at the Palestine Cole mine according to the 1930 census. I am wondering if Wood County has birth records back to this date. I was wondering if you might be able to point me in the right direction as where to look or who to contact for help.”
