~~~ADDIE BELL LEWIS BASHAM~~~
My Grandma Basham was a very kind person. She came from a family of eleven siblings. She had a little brother not much younger than she was that died in her arms. She and Grandpa C.B.had a hard life. They went to the Rio Grand Valley with my Mother and Aunt to survive the Depression. Grandpa came right back to AR. as soon as he could. After all AR. was their home. They went to CA. in 1954 and worked for a Dude ranch (Sky Ranch). Grandma broke her arm and got a cast put on. She couldn't use her arm very well with the cast on and took it off in about 4 wks. Well they got home sick and went back to AR. and never left that State again. Grandma was a lewis and her people came into Washington Co AR. From TN. Her G.G. Grandmother was part Cherokee and her G. Uncles rode with the Cherokee Mounted Rifles on the Confederate side and Grandpa Moses Lewis, their Brother was with the Union. Grandpa Moses Lewis is buried in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery on the Camp Chaffee land in Sebastian Co., AR. Grandma Basham's Dad Clinton Lewis and Mother Rebecca (Becky) Borum Lewis is also buried there. Grandma has been gone for many years and I guess I will always miss her. Here is a list of all her Siblings. I met all of them except Herman. Will, Alma, Enoch,Arthur (Pete), Elmer, Meg, Herman, Charles Buford, Alzie, Reba and Dewey Lewis.
