Carrie Bassett

November 29, 1869 - March 20, 1904

Born in the province of Ontario, Canada; Carrie (nee Gardner) Bassett was the wife of Byron L. Bassett, a son of Edwin B. Bassett, a pioneer of York Township and Civil War veteran.  Carrie Gardner married Byron Bassett in Greenwood, Wisconsin on October 18, 1892.  She was a daughter of Wolf and Elizabeth (nee Tombs) Gardner.[i]  The 1893 plat map of York Township shows a W. Gardner owning land in Section 8.  Similarly, the 1900 Federal Census and 1905 Clark County Census both list a Wolf and Elizabeth Gardner living in York Township.  Arthur Gardner and Bertha (nee Gardner) Lawrence were siblings of Carrie Bassett and are also buried at York Cemetery.
