Edith Basye
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1836
Death: 1892

Find A Grave member James W. Waters (#47509227) sent in the following information:

"Edith" Basye
Her name was Oleva and is so spelled in the Heltzel genealogy. It appears in documents as Eve, Ede, and Edith.
See A. R. Seder, Four Families, Early Settlers of Western Virginia, 2003. Also on Web.
The dates on her gravestone are probably incorrect.
The 1850 and 1860 Census give her age as 15 and 25, putting her birth 18341835. The marriage record (Nov 1860) has 27. The 1870 Census has 37 and the 1880 Census has 46.
There are two Virginia death records, one with 16 Jul 1894, age 55, and the other 26 Jul 1893, age 55.

Request to change name to:
First Name:

Middle Name:

Maiden Name:


The request to change the name on her memorial was rejected at this time. Her gravestone says Edith.
