The Bailey Memorial Library in Clarendon was named after Cornelia Wesley Bailey (1837 - 1919) who left money in her Will for a town library in Clarendon.  What we know of Cornelia is detailed in a report found here.  See the History of Libraries in Clarendon entry in the Buildings & Enterprises collection for more on the Bailey Library formation and history. 

The photos are courtesy of Terry Thompson-Manning.  The cover photo is of Cornelia.  Below is what may be a photo of her daughter Maud (1869 - 1873).
