J. C. and Nancy Bagley came to Swisher County in 1889 from Falls County, and filed on land 12 miles west of Kress. They had seven children: Mollie (married J. B. Gayler); James E. (married Vina Henderson); Amanda, who died at an early age; George (married Mae Wilkins); Al Bright (married Pearl Matlock); William Thomas (married Helen Herndon); and Lottie (married Robert McDaniel). At one time there was a Bagley School about 2 miles east of the Center Plains School. J. C. moved into Kress and built a general merchandise store called J. C. Bagley General Store. He donated the land for a new Baptist Church. Many members of the Bagley family are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery
