Parents:
Merle Haggard was born in Bakersfield, California in 1937. His parents, Flossie Mae
Harp and James Francis Haggard,[1] moved from Oklahoma to California during the
Great Depression. At that time, much of the population of Bakersfield consisted of
economic refugees from Oklahoma and surrounding states. Haggard spent his
childhood in Oildale, a hardscrabble suburb of Bakersfield, home to many of the
workers in the adjacent Kern River Oil Field....
