Tonight I came across Bennett Earles and was trying to figure out if there was a connection. Perhaps you can help.
I was searching out Lemuel Bailey and found the Earles family with several of their children in their household.
Lemuel & family:
They lived in Wayne Co., WV until abt 1865, and then moved to Lawrence Co., OH. They were found in Perry Twp, Lawrence Co., OH, in both 1870 & 1880 census.

377       Bailey       Lemuel       45       M       W       Farm work       Ky                     
Cena       42       F       W       K. house       Ky       
Catherine       18       F       W       Home       Va       
Peggy       15       F       W       School       Va

Now, to further complicate the issue, I ran across another Bennett Earles, probably a relative:
1870 census Windsor Twsp, Law. Co., OH
323       315       Earles       Bennet       65       M       W       Farmer       Va       900       750       
Nancy       62       F       W       K. house       Va       
Perry       9       M       W       Home       O       

Lots of others Earles living nearby. I have Charles as his father and Frances Norman as his second wife. Then I noticed Sena Norman, and thought there had to be a namesake connection.

I have no connection to this line of Earles or the Baileys. I was following Cena Jackson, wife of Lemuel Bailey, and ran into all of this tonight. Hated not to share it with someone :)
It's always easier to find people I'n NOT connected to!
Blessings and good luck in your search,
