Sam Jones was a widower with a small son, Mike.
Sam was a gentleman farmer who had recently
taken up residence near Mayberry. Not long
after his arrival he found himself elected to
the Mayberry Town Council, a position for
which he had no prior experience. That hardly
mattered in Mayberry, however, as in his
friendly, bumbling way he attempted to perform
his new duties and attend to the simple needs
of the townsfolk. Aunt Bee moved in with him
as housekeeper for two years, then was
replaced by Aunt Alice. Millie swanson
was Sam's romantic interest.
