EDWARD BAILEY. Born in Ireland. Age given at the time he enlisted, forty-two years, but he was doubtless nearly sixty years old. He had been a resident of St. Johnsbury for several years preceding the war. Enlisted in Company K, 3d Regiment, July 10, 1861. Mustered into United States service July 16, 1861. Discharged for disability, December 1, 1863. Bailey was large in stature, and evidently, at some period of his life, of great physical vigor, was unfit for the more active duties of the service, and was employed about the camp in washing and other similar duties until his discharge. United States bounty, $100. Bailey died in the summer of 1871, on the line of the Portland and Ogdensburg Railroad, west of St. Johnsbury, where he had been at work for a few weeks. His body was brought to St. Johnsbury, and interred in the Catholic Cemetery.
