  • Notes 


    • In the family notes: Theodore's daughter, called Myrtis Lorainde Dolly Bassford, is a child and is attending Figueroa School and seems to revive the Bassford artistic nature with pencil and feet as she dances around like a fairy every minute she gets a chance and would rather draw than do other school work. So time will tell what the youngest great-great-grandchild of Abraham Bassford will undertake in the futrue.

      Her nickname was "Dolly"
      In Memory of
      Myrtis Rose

      The family feels that on Mother's Day the Lord gave her the best gift of all, the gift of taking her home.
