From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for David C. Bailey, who resided at Oceana, West Virginia:

Was born in Logan county, W.Va., April 3, 1843, but subsequently removed to Wyoming county, where he was living at the breaking of the war of the rebellion. Here, June 28, 1865, he was united in marriage to Lucinda J. Lambert, native of Tazewell county, Va. Of this union 12 children have been born: Ollie E., Thomas J., George C., Humphrey, Ira, Mary, Rachel A., Frank O., Albert, Romeo, David H., and Orvie. They reside with their parents at their beautiful home on Clear Fork, not far from its junction with Guyandotte River. Mr. Bailey is at this time engaged in farming; besides his handsome residence, he owns extensive coal and timber lands. As a citizen, he is highly respected; as a friend, he is beloved by all who know him. He has held several offices with honor, among others that of county superintendent, to which he was elected in 1879, continued in office till 1885, having been re-elected in 1884. His post office is Oceana, Wyoming county, W.Va.
