Pioneer Texan noted for his courage, integrity, and eccentric behavior. Came to Texas in 1818 with wife and six children.

He settled on what came to be "Bailey's Prairie". Joined Stephen F. Austin's colony, 1824.

Bailey became a captain in the local militia. Fought in battles preceding 1836 Texas Revolution.

At his request he was buried standing up, facing west, gun at side so no one could look down on him, even in death.
