I had not looked for Basham's in Audubon Co., IA, where many of
my Nelson ancestors were born/lived. We were in the Audubon
Public Library last week. We stumbled upon Joel Hardin Basham,
b. 24 March 1838 in Breckinridge, KY -- grandson of Obediah
Basham & Celia Dowell -- son of Francis "Frank" Basham &
Thursia Hardin. Joel lived his life in Audubon Co., IA and still has
descendants at Exira, Audubon Co., IA, we believe.
The source for Joel H. Hardin is: "Biographical History of Shelby
and Audubon Counties, Iowa," publ. in 1889; p. 757.
P.S. Audubon Co. is ca 1½ hr. from Omaha and Des Moines.
I'm so sorry to hear of the death of Ms. Cox. Does any one know how to
obtain a copy of her book, or even where it could be read/checked out?
Thanks so much.

I understand she had much info on my family from Breck. County.
To the person looking for "Kinfolks"
I too once looked for this book. I spoke to Mrs. Cox and she indicated that
it was no longer in print, but that copies could be found in the following
The Ancestral Trails Historical Society,
Elizabethtown, Kentucky (Hardin County)
The Hardinsburg Library
The Library of Congress
(Portions of this can be viewed online through to Library of Congress's web
site, obtainable from Rootsweb.)
Hope this helps.
I don't know all of the locations where this book is shelved, but
libraries and archives in/near Bedford, VA and Breckinridge, KY
are the most likely spots. I believe that I saw it at the Bedford
City/County Museum; Virginia Room at Roanoke, VA City
Library; Meade Co., KY Public Library; LDS Family History Center,
Mesa, AZ. I presume that it's at the archives in Frankfort, KY, as well.
Sorry that I couldn't be more help.
I learned from a lady in Enid, OK that Opal L. Cox died in Feb. 1998.
All of her genealogy materials were donated to the public library in
Opal's book, Kinfolk, is a good one with much genealogy pertaining
to Breckinridge Co., KY.
