BALEY J. WILCOX was born in Logan County, Ohio, in 1838, and learned the blacksmith's trade when seventeen years of age, working at that until the breaking out of the War of the Rebellion in 1861, when he enlisted in the 4th Ohio Volunteer Infantry; being wounded in action at New Creek, Va., he was discharged, but in July, 1862, enlisted again in the 45th Ohio Volunteers, in which regiment he served until the end of the war, taking part in no less than twenty-nine pitched battles, besides skirmishes and raids. After the close of the war, he went to Wisconsin, then came back to Ohio (where he was married, in 1867, to Miss Lucy A. Pickering), and after another move to Wisconsin, he bought land three miles south of Thayer, and moved on to it in 1874.
