I'm looking for further information on the parents of Lester Bassett, Sr. born abt 1824 in New York.Lester married Clarinda Ingram (b. 1825 in Ontario Co., NY).Lester and Clarinda are found in the Federal Census of 1850 in Naples, Ontario Co., NY with their children: James Warren (b. 1844), Almon S. (b. 1846), Lester Jr. and Matthew.They moved to La Grange Co., IN and appear there in the 1860 federal census.
Previous information from Jeffrey Bassett included the possibility that Lester could be the son of James and Rachel Bassett of Vermont and NY respectively.He could also be related to several other Bassetts in Indiana who migrated from NY to IN at roughly the same time.
If anyone has any information, please email me.Thanks,
