My ggrandfather James Monroe Shaw married my ggrandmother Clara Belle Basinger/Baysinger/Bassinger in Dunklin Co., MO around 1890 (I have no record of this--just family history) and had children Alsa (1893), Ora Jane (1894), Thomas (1896), and Harry (1898) in the Malden area--best guess.
J.M. is listed as a widower on the 1900 census. The family migrated to Butler Co. shortly thereafter and my aunt remembers an Uncle Mart. She thinks he was a Basinger and I've found a Martin Luther Basinger who fits the description and locations so I'm guessing he's the right one.
Can anyone help me connect Martin Luther Basinger to Clara Belle Basinger and/or give me more information on this family and the rest of the members--mother and father names, etc.? Even just a point in the right direction would be appreciated.
Any information, family tales, "I've run across that name", or just guesses about the Shaw family would also be welcome.
