    Thomas signed two 13-year leases for farmland at Little Hoosick [later Petersburgh] in the East Manor of Rensselaerwyck for annual rents of 12 and 15 skipples of good winter wheat and four fat fowls (one skipple was about 3/4 of a bushel).

    Land description for the second: "on the North by lands leased to Henry Young, on the East by the mountain, on the South by lands leased to Jury[?] de Voe, & on the West by the Creek"

    • The names Thomas Baily and Thomas Baily Jr. appear in the 1790 US Census for Stephen Town, but there were potentially three Thomas Baleys living there in 1790: Thomas 4th (age 74), Thomas 5th (45) and Thomas 6th (21). The death date of Thomas 4th is unknown, and if Thomas 4th was dead in 1790, then the census households would belong to Thomas 5th and 6th.
    Died Before 1793  Petersburgh, Rensselaer, New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • The idea that Thomas 4th died before 1793 is based on the signatures and dates on Rensselaerwyck leases and a deed. (See signatures under documents below.) [3]

    Note that the signature on the 1793 deed differs from that of Thomas Baly (Thomas 4th) on his 1773 lease both in the spelling of Baley and the form of the B, but it is similar to that of Thomas Baley, Jr. (Thomas 5th) on his 1773 lease. The fact that Thomas did not use Junior on 1793 deed, suggests that Thomas 4th was dead at that time. (The deed is shown on the page of Thomas 5th. ) Also, note that Thomas Jr., Stanton, and Elisha all spelled their name Baley.
