Subject: [BASTIN] Queries: Gracie COOPER BASTIN and Gletha COOPER BASTIN of Casey County, KY
Date: Sat, 1 Dec 2001 10:22:18 -0500


Hello BASTIN-L List Members!

While researching the BASTIN family this past week, much of what had been
largely loose ends suddently fell together. Specifically, many of the
Central Florida BASTINs that I ran across back in 1996-1997 in public
records/newspaper clippings are now known to be descendants of Casey County,
KY BASTINs, and are therefore related to many on our BASTIN-L list,
including myself. Interestingly enough, they are actually double cousins to
many on our list, including myself, having two BASTIN descendancy
relationships!

Does anyone know who Gracie Cooper of Casey County, KY married: ??? BASTIN.
Who were his parents BASTIN (i.e., Gracie's mother-in-law and
father-in-law)?

Her sister, Glethia (or Gletha) COOPER married William Henry BASTIN.

Gracie's and Gletha's mom, Louetta Elliott, was descended from earlier
BASTIN ancestors, herself, (see attached) so both Gletha and Gracie were
BASTIN descendants, too, in addition to marrying BASTIN
descendants/relatives! (There are numerous connections to ELLIOTT, BUIS,
FALCONBURY, and many other often-found family collateral lines, too.)

Thanks,
