Would like any information on Orrilla Day. In 1845 Orrilla Day married a Lewis Moses Davis in Stanstead Canada. They had one daughter Eleanor Maria Davis in 1848. Lewis died in 1848 and Orrilla returned to Vt and married Joshua Bayley and had three children Adella, Clayton and Lewis. In the 1850 census there is a Joshua Bayley and Orilla with a daughter Eleanor age 2. In 1860 Eleanor is not with the Bayles. Orilla dies in 1860 and the children by Joshua Bayley remain with him. In the 1861 Canadian census a Nellie M. Davis is living with a Leonard Davis in Stanstead. I am trying to prove this Nellie M. Davis is Eleanor Maria Davis do Lewis Moses Davis and Orilla R. Day Davis Bayley. I believe when Orrilla became ill and died Joshua Bayley did not want Eleanor and retured her to the Davis famil to be reared. Actually Joshua went up to Standstead to live for several years with his children.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who knows about Orillas first marrigage to Lewis Moses Davis and their child Eleanor.
