Albert Elmer Bailey, a well known representative of industrial interests in Utica, organized the firm of Bailey & Bowne in 1898 and has since built up an extensive carriage and automobile manufacturing enterprise. He was born in this city on the 2d of February, 1862, a son of Charles Henry and Mary J. (Peek) Bailey, and is a worthy representative of one of the prominent early families of the Empire state. Both his father and grandfather were natives of Whitestown, the former born on the 7th of April, 1827, in what was called the Pratt Settlement. Samuel Bailey, the paternal grandfather of Albert E. Bailey, born in 1794, was an agriculturist by occupation, while Charles Henry Bailey was engaged in the foundry business. The latter came to Utica in the early '50s and passed away in 1892. The paternal great-grandfather, Stephen Bailey, was born in Connecticut in 1762, and served in the Revolutionary war, while on the maternal side of the house the great-grandfather was a native of Holland, who had early settled in Saratoga county, where Mrs. Mary J. (Peek) Bailey was born in 1830.

Albert E. Bailey attended the public schools in the acquirement of an education and was graduated from the Free Academy with the class of 1879. In 1898 he organized the firm of Bailey & Bowne for the manufacture of carriages and has since developed an enterprise of extensive and profitable proportions. He has spent all but ten years of his life in Utica and enjoys a wide and favorable acquaintance here.
