Notes:  George Thomas Baisley was born 4 May 1895.  His draft registration card states that he was born in Los Angeles, California.  His parents were William and Anne Baisley.  In the 1900 U.S. census, his family was living in the Hemet Twp. of Riverside County, California.  His father was an engineer, of stationery engines.  George, age 5 years, had a younger sister, Maude, 3 years old.  He had a cousin, Clarence, also age 5 years, who lived with the family.

In the 1910 U.S. census, the family was living in the Murietta Twp. of Riverside County.  George's father William was now a well driller.  George, now 15, had additional siblings, namely Robert, 8 years old, Stan, 3 years old, and baby Lola, 6 months old.  In 1917, George registered for the World War Draft.  He listed himself as a self-employed well driller.  His address was Hemet, R.F.D. No. 2, California.  He claimed to be married with a wife to support.  He was described as being short, of medium build, with blue eyes and dark hair.

The marriage was short-lived, as George is found in the 1920 U.S. census living with his parents in the Valle Vista Precinct of Hemet.  It is unclear if the marriage column in the census is "M" or "W", but no wife is found in the census.  A later marriage license shows that there was a divorce.  George listed himself as a machinist.  His father is still a well driller, as is his brother Robert.  His sister Maude has evidently left the household.

George married Harriett Martineau Fishback on 26 Mar 1928 in Riverside, California.  They are listed in the 1928 Alhambra City Directory living at 327 Hershey Ave, Wilmar.  Their son George Thomas, Jr., was born 7 Nov 1929 in Arizona.  In the 1930 U.S. census, the family was living in Globe, Arizona.  It included Harriet's son from her previous marriage, John Everett Spainhower, who had taken his step-father's surname.  George, Sr., was now the foreman for a stage company.  This being 1930, it probably meant a bus company, and Globe was the western terminus of U.S. Highway 70.

The family returned to California before 1935.  In 1938, the family was registered to vote as Democrats in San Gabriel, living again at 327 Hersley Avenue.  In the 1940 U.S. census, George Sr., was a mechanic in an automobile garage, and had an eighth grade education.  They owned their home, which had a value of $2,000.

The family later moved to Lomita, California, where George had an auto repair shop on their property located at 25212 Pennysvania Ave.  Harriet died 5 Apr 1957 in Los Angeles County.

George married again to Alma Ellen Otts, maiden name Thompson, on 31 Aug 1957 in Lomita.  This was short lived, as Alma died 22 May 1963 in San Bernardino County.  George died 23 Mar 1985 in Imperial County.  His last residence for Social Security purposes was El Centro, Imperial County.  George, and both of his wives, are buried in the Green Hills Memorial Park, Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
