This information, while true, may NOT apply to our William Bailey.  Page 51: The families of James Marlow and William Baley are described as consisting of 2 free white males of 16 years and upward (including heads of families), 2 free white males under 16 years old, and 3 free white females (including heads of families). They have no slaves or other free persons living in the house.

NOTE: William appears to have been living with his father during the 1790 census -- or, another male over 16 years old could have been living with his father instead of him. We will keep this entry as questionable until additional information is found.
