About Joseph Murray Bailes

Was raised in Fort Mill, South Carolina on his father's farm.He was sent to Clemson but decided he did not want to end up being a cotton farmer as his father was, so he slipped out of Clemson with a couple of friends, caught a passing freight and headed west. He wound up in Albequerque , N.M.and enrolled at University of New Mexico where he met Francis. After a short courtship they married and a year later Patricia Ruth Bailes was born.

This was in 1930 at the height of the "Great Depression".
