Birth: Jan. 19, 1888
Louisiana, USA
Death: Mar. 17, 1971
Oroville
Butte County
California, USA

Thomas Milton Baggett was born on January 19, 1888 in Louisiana and was put to rest in Oroville, Butte County, California on March 17, 1971. According to his death certificate, his parents were John Baggett and Betty Richie Baggett of Louisiana. He lived in Butte County, CA for 44 years.

He was raised almost his entire life by Alzenith Hodges Baggett, sister-in-law of John Wesley Baggett. Tom's mother, Betty, died giving birth to him and his twin sister, Ellen. The following was told to me by a living relative in Louisiana: "Tom fell off his father's wagon on a trip to visit the Hodges in Calcasieu Parish. He suffered a terrible head injury. Because Tom's mother wasn't living, Alzenith offered to raise him as her own". He always lived with Alzenith, George Reilly Baggett Jr. or Ola Baggett/Sheldon. He was known to our family as "Uncle Tommy". We never knew he had a twin sister. Tommy never married.

It is believed that Tommy came to California about 1925 with Alzenith, Ola, and George R. Baggett, Jr.
