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.

1870
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              
                     
Paulina       12       F       W       School       Va       
America       9       F       W       School       Va              
James       7       M       W       School       Va              
       
Roland       5       M       W       Home       O                     
Samson       3       M       W       Home       O


1870
31       317       Earls       Jeremiah       39       M       W       Carpenter       O       100              
                     
Frances       28       F       W       K. house       W. Va.       
                     
Amos       16       M       W       Farm work       O       
                     
Hamilton       12       M       W       Home       O                            
Chas.       10/12       M       W       Home       O              
              
Korman       Alice       8       F       W       Home       O                     

In 1880 census:

Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace
Jeremiah EARLES Self M Male W 49 OH Sewing Machine Agt. OH OH
Frances EARLES Wife M Female W 38 VA Keeping House VA VA
Charles EARLES Son S Male W 11 OH OH VA
Arthur E. EARLES Son S Male W 9 OH OH VA
Bennett EARLES Son S Male W 5 OH OH VA
Bertie W. EARLES Son S Male W 3 OH OH VA
Luther EARLES Son S Male W 2M OH OH VA
William R. NORMAN SSon S Male W 19 VA Laborer VA VA
Sena A. NORMAN SDau S Female W 17 VA Seamstress VA VA
Sampson BAILEY Son S Male W 12 OH KY KY
Andrew BAILEY Son S Male W 9 OH KY KY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Source Information:
Census Place Union, Lawrence, Ohio
Family History Library Film 1255039
NA Film Number T9-1039
Page Number 325C

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,
Beverly
