Bailey was a member of the first Territorial Legislature of Iowa. He worked diligently to bring free public education to Iowa. He also served the people of Van Buren county as a physician for many years. It is rumored he was the attending Physician for Abraham Lincoln's father in his last illness.

I'm the 2nd great grandson of Dr. Bailey. Doing research currently indicates Dr. Bailey left Coles Cty. Ill for Iowa in 1837 and Thomas Lincoln died in Coles Cty in 1851. Not likely he attended his last illness but could have known and/or attended the Thomas Lincoln family during the time they were in the county together.
