Hi! I don't know if this will help you or anything, but I know of a place called Baskett, Kentucky. It was started by some people named Baskett a long time ago and from what I understand, a long line of them lived there for years. I don't know if it would be anybody related to you, but since your father was from Kentucky it might help. Baskett is a little place in Henderson County, Kentucky, about 10 minutes away from the city of Henderson. I believe it was started originally as a train depot called Baskett Station. Well, i hope that this helps!
