William Edward Bashford

William Edward Bashford was born in Harrison county, Missouri, June 25, 1887, and died at Wichita, September 13, 1931, aged 74 years, 2 months and 19 days.

With the family he came to Kansas about 1878, settling in Republic county, where he spent most of his time until about 1904, when he moved to Concordia. In 1924 he moved to Wichita, where he resided at the time of his death. He was united in marriage to Minnie S. Hubbard, March 15, 1883. To this union three children were born: Mrs. Quincy [Edith] Ellis of Republic, Kan., Chester A. Bashford and Mrs. Harry [Ethel] Janopoulo, both of Wichita, Kan.

He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife, 3 children, 12 grandchildren, 3 sisters and one brother, Mrs. Liza Bowersox, and Mrs. Barbara Johnson of Concordia, Mrs. Rachel McGarvin of Worland, Wyo., and Ben Bashford of Eugene, Ore.

In early life he confessed Christ as his Savior, and lived a true and faithful life, a friend of the oppressed, a kindly helper in trouble, and always ready and willing to stand at duty's call.

The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Chas. Karraker of the West Side Christian church of which he was a member, and he was laid to rest in Memorial Lawns cemetery, near Wichita.

[Note: White Chapel began as College Park Memorial Lawn Cemetery and sometime between 1930-1950 the name was changed to White Chapel Memorial Gardens.]
