NOTES for Harvey:
Dr. Harvey Simon Bassett practiced medicine. One of his descendants shared this information with me: "I have a few pictures of Dr. Bassett and Euretta (Flanders) Bassett. My sister has an electrical quackery piece of medical equipment from his office that is very scary when you realize that she spent the last 17 years of her life (we believe) in the Manteno, IL Insane Asylum. This facility is still in existence. I have meant to write for records but haven't to date. Also, I don't know if I told you that her son became a physician and practiced in Tuscola, IL. He had 1 son who died, I believe, in 1918 of influenza, along with his wife. He was my 2nd great uncle, and lived to be 109 years old. I did get to know him. He was fairly blind when I knew him. l had read in some of the Flanders queries about some of them being relatively small. Gr. Gr. Uncle Harve was very small. In fact, he had a special rocker made for him that very diminuitive. I have no further record on Euretta's family and would appreciate anything that you could share on her line." Title: (K:25).
