The only Basil Rought I know of is Basil Leroy Rought, born Jan 23, 1899 in Michigan. I show his wife as Carrie L. (last name unknown) but did have a note that he might have a wife by the name of Martha (it is unclear whether this was instead of Carrie or a 2nd wife). Basil died in July 1976 in Michigan and appears in the Social Security Death Index. I have the names of four children in my records: Vivian, Dale, Doris and Gene but the only one I have any information about is Vivian - she was born c. 1920 and died March 31, 1999 in Muskegon, Muskegon Co., Michigan. If this is the Basil you are tracking, email me and I'll provide you with information regarding his parents, grandparents, etc.
