Baskin, Charles L., M. D. Carroll County has its full quota of skilled and successful physicians and surgeons and among the number is Dr. Charles L. Baskin, who is a representative of old and honored families of that section of the state and who enjoys unqualified popularity in his native county. He was born in Carroll County, Jan. 27, 1869, a son of Thomas W. and Hattie (Chandler) Baskin, both natives of that county, where the respective families were early established. Thomas W. Baskin was born at Hickory Level, Feb. 19, 1845, a son of Rev. James Baskin, a clergyman of the Methodist Episcopal church who came from South Carolina to Georgia in 1826, settled at Hickory Level and became one of the extensive land-owners of Carroll county. Thomas W. Baskin was a loyal soldier of the Confederacy during the Civil war, as a member of the Nineteenth Georgia infantry. His vocation in life was that of farming and he was one of the honored and influential citizens of Carroll County, where he died in 1879. His wife was born in Carrollton, where she still maintains her home, was a daughter of Thomas Chandler, who was one of the first settlers of that place, having located there about 1825. He was an able lawyer and practiced his profession with marked success. He effected a treaty between a number of white settlers and the Indians and for this service was given a considerable body of land, where Carrollton now stands. He was a man of prominence and influence, active in public affairs, frequently served as a delegate to the state conventions of his political party and stood high in the esteem of all who knew him. Dr. Charles L. Baskin secured his early educational training in the public schools of Carrollton, and was then matriculated in the Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons, in which excellent institution he was graduated in April, 1895, with the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He forthwith opened an office in Temple, where he has since been engaged in active practice and where he has met with unequivocal success in his chosen profession. He is identified with the Medical Association of Georgia and with the Carroll county medical society; is local surgeon for the Southern railway; is president of the Temple board of health and also president of the board of education of the town. In politics he is a stanch Democrat; his religious faith is that of the Baptist church, of which his wife also is a member; and is affiliated with the local lodge and chapter of the Masonic fraternity. On Dec. 18, 1890, Doctor Baskin was united in marriage to Miss Martha Connell, daughter of Thomas and Martha (Arnold) Connell, of Carroll county. She was summoned to the life eternal on Dec. 2, 1903, and is survived by three children,Todd, Edwin and Hattie. On Jan. 14, 1906, Doctor Baskin married Miss Kate Connell, a sister of his first wife.
