I had a wonderful major breakthrough a few months ago due to the help of
another researcher in Owayhee County, for which I am very grateful!
Now, I am hoping to have another miracle. The family line I was so
graciously helped with was on the children of PHILIP DEARY (Dairy) who were
orphaned at a young age. The 3 children's names were: JACOB, EDNA and BASIL
I have the information on JACOB and EDNA -- but BASIL B. DEARY has been more
difficult. When his mother died, he was still an infant, and taken to be
raised by the couple that had cared for his mother. Their names were WILLIAM
and JANE WRIGHT and they were from Ireland. In the 1870 Census, the WRIGHTS
were in their 70's and BASIL (Basel) was only 18 years old. At that time
they were still living in Jackson County, Oregon, where his mother had died.
JACOB and EDNA appeared to remain in Owyhee County, Idaho, where their
father, PHILIP DEARY (Derry) (1817-1853) had died at the home of Mr. Towner
Savage, near Silver City.
In August of 1887, the "Idaho Avalanche" newspaper had a notation that 3 men
had come into town from Lone Tree Creek -- and one of them was B. DEARY --
along with a Mr. Dennis Driscoll and a Mr. Moon.
This seems to indicate that the elderly WRIGHTS probably passed away between
1870 and 1887 and that BASEL had left Oregon to re-join his older brother and
sister in Idaho. At that point the trail grows cold. The 1890 Census has
been lost and I have hit another brick wall.
Are there any local tax records or articles about this time period of late
1880's and onward that might hint at where BASEL (Basil) might have gone or
if he ever married? He is also listed as B. B. DERRY.
Thanks so very much! Happy Holidays to everyone!!
