About Francis Bailey

the biographical sketch on Francis' son James Madison Bailey is confusing genealogically. I believe the only way it makes sense is to interpret the Livingston reference as being about Francis' mother, not about James' mother.

James Madison Bailey, iron-manufacturer, Pittsburgh, is a native of Pittsburgh, born on what is now First avenue, in August, 1833. His father, Francis Bailey, was a member of a family which held a one-hundred- year lease on an estate on the River Baun, near Coleraine, Ireland; his mother was a member of the Livingston family. Francis Bailey came to Philadelphia in 1814. and to Pittsburgh about six years later. He was a prominent Freemason and was the first commander of the K. T. Commandery of Pittsburgh, being instrumental in the revival of Masonry here; was an adherent of democratic principles, and served as alderman under gubernatorial appointment; he died in 1849, aged sixty-two years.
