104 Arthur was a severe asthmatic. He went to Arizona where he was better able to breathe. He got homesick for his family and came back east but could not breathe. Luther and Mary, his parents gave him their Ford touring car and placed all of the money that they had into a little bag and had Leotta hide it in her bra. They set out to Arizona on October 13, 1928 and arrived in Tucson on October 25, 1928. His parents and family back east heard very little from him after he left and then eventually never heard from him again. It was rumored that Arthur and Leotta divorced and that they remarried. They had a son.

135 Charles Bailer and his generation lived in a world vastly different than that of today. His was the last of a trully agrarian American culture. His generation didn't have the advantages that resulted from the advances of the industrial revolution such as the gas engine. They plowed their fields with oxen and horses, not tractors. Life for Charles generation was hard, yet simple. The pleasures of life didn't cost in terms of dollars. Esther (Bailer) Sisco remembers each Sunday evening the family would have apples and popcorn as a treat. Recreation consisted of swimming in Otisco Lake or visiting neighbors who were in some manner, likely related. Their pleasures were simplistic by today's standards. The change in the American culture began as the children of this generation began leaving the farm, favoring the opportunities and lifestyle available in the cities and suburbs.

Charles and his siblings were the first generation of Bailers born in America. Born the fifth of twelve children to Johann "John" Bailer and Elzabeth (Edinger) Bailer on Wedneday, November 8, 1882 at home in Otisco, NY, he was particularly close to his older brother John Bailer. Due to the fact that there were so many children in the family, it was expected that the next older child would take care of and watch out for the next youngest sibling. Therefore, John being fourth born took care of Charles, the fifth born.

Charles attended the one room schoolhouse in Otisco which was located next to the present day post office (see photos) completing his education to the sixth grade. This was not uncommon in the rural farm areas of New England at the time. The reason that public schools close for the summer stems back to the agrarian roots of the United States. It was during the summer that the children were needed to assist on the family or they were hired out by other families to work on their farms thus providing added family income. This was true of Charles experience. At twelve years of age he went to work as a farm-hand since there were so many children in the family and his parents couldn't afford the expenses. He lived on the farm he hired out to and then in winters would move back home and go to school. This is evidenced by the fact that according to the 1900 US Federal census, Charles was working as a farm hand for Samuel Cowles of Otisco, NY. His daughter, Esther (Bailer) Sisco remembers Charles telling her how homesick he would get for his family during these summer jobs.

Charles and his brother John became partners in a farming venture sometime between 1900 and 1910. The April 1910, U.S. Federal census shows them as partners and sister Anna as a farm-hand. It was also during this time that Charles met Dora Hobart and began courting her. He would ask John for permission to take the horse and buggy to pick Dora up to take her on a date. Since these were the days before telephones were widely used, they were write back and forth to communicate. In his letters to Dora, Charles would always sign his name, "Your Friend."

On March 29, 1911 Charles and Dora were married at the home of her grandfather, Henry J. Tuffley (See Photo Scrapbook below for images). He continued to work the farm with John Bailer after he married Dora. Both Horace and Phyllis Bailer were born in this house.

Around 1921, Charles and Dora purchased a farm on Tully Road (Route 80) in Otisco, New York because the original farm was too far for their son Horace to walk to school. The home is located at 1779 Route 80 in the town of Otisco. It was in this home that Esther Bailer was born and grew up.

Phyllis stayed home and took care of her younged siblings. Esther used to have to help harvest cabbage. It was picked by the wagon full and she would have to throw it off wagon. Esther recalled that one of her "tosses" accidently hit Charles in face and gave him a bloody nose. Then they would unload the cabbage and place it on the ground near the barn with the core down and it would be covered with hay. In the winter, when the price of cabbage would go up, it would be loaded on a wagon and taken to the Tully railroad. Esther relates that her father would get so cold that he would wear a full length horse skin coat. Sometimes his nose would freeze. He had blankets that he would put on the horses. Esther would also have to pick up potatoes after school. Her hands would get very cold.

Charles found that after his son Horace graduated from high school and began attending college, he could no longer work the farm by himself. Charles brother, John had sold the original farm and had moved to Hallstead, Pennsylvania and began working for the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western (DL&W) Railroad. In 1935, through John's encouragement, Charles and family moved to Hallstead, Pennsylvania and went to work for the same railroad as a laborer. As a laborer he repaired rails and ties.

The trains ran frequently during this time so he and the work crew had to be off the tracks when a train went by. He knew what time each train was to pass by so he had to keep his pocket watch accurate. He wore bib overalls and kept his pocket watch in the pocket of the bib.

They originally rented a house on Chase Avenue just off of DuBois Street in Hallstead, PA for a short time. Approximately one year after moving to Pennsylvania, Charles and Dora heard that the DuBois's were looking for a caretaker for their farm. So they moved to the DuBois farm on Harmony Creek Road in Hallstead, PA and became the caretakers of the farm. The Bailer family lived in the main house as the DuBois's would only visit for a few weeks each summer. At this same time Charles continued to work for the railroad which ran from New York City to Buffalo, New York.

Charles & Dora eventually were able to purchase their own house at the corner of Church and Tannery Streets in Great Bend, Pennsylvania. The house has since been torn down to make way for expansion of the fire station parking lot. Directly behind the house were Lackawanna railroad tracks. Even in retirement, sitting in his recliner watching television Charles would take out his pocket watch to check the time when the train went by. The trains ran so precisely on schedule that Charles would actually adjust the time on his watch based on the time that the train passed by their house. Terry Sisco remembers placing pennies on the tracks for the trains to flatten.

The kitchen in this home was located at the back of the house and had a wood burning stove. The stacks of wood to fuel the fire were stored on the back porch. Dora planted a vegetable garden in the back yard and at one point raised chickens for fresh eggs to eat and sell. To the rear and left side of the house was an unattached garage. Later in life Dora would not let Charles drive becuase he tended to be "heavy on the peddle."

Charles had very strong opinions concerning just about everything. He was a staunch Republican and was never afraid to express his opinion that "being a Democrat was worse than being a Catholic." He was a very gregarious person who "never met a stranger". He loved people and loved to tell stories. The Bailer children had an exceptional ability to remember dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. Charles was a hard worker even into his senior years. Two things that he believed a man should never be without were a pocket watch and a "jack knife", both of which Charles always carried.

He enjoyed chewing tobacco much to the chagrin of Dora. Each time he heard Dora coming he would take the wet chewed tobacco out of his mouth and hide it in his back pocket. Charles enjoyed whittling wood and playing what he referred to as the "mouth organ" or harmonica. He impressed his grandchildren by being able to carve a whistle with his jack knife out of a willow branch. He loved to watch the Lawrence Welk Show but despised the popular singer Perry Como, because he was a "foreigner." This was humorous because Charles mother and father immigrated from Germany.

Later in life, Charles suffered from arthritic hips and walked with a bad limp. He walked with a cane that also came in handy when he wanted to reach some or get someone's attention.
