BASKETTs of Orange & Wilkes Cos NC, 1750-1840
Searching for parents of Ruth BASKETT [widow of Michael
TEAGUE], b.Feb 1766 Chatham Co NC - d.Apr 1840 Wilkes Co.
Married 2 John Marley JONES.
Possible father for Ruth: 1. William BASKETT whose 1767
Orange Co NC will lists "wife Ruth, 3 daughters - Mary,
Elizabeth, and Ruth, as they reach 20, and sons Thomas
and William". Possible 2 = Thomas, b.1742, who was a Regulator and was killed in 1771, leaving a wife and child
I lean toward Thomas being the right father, but no proof.
Any hints appreciated.
