Surnames: BASHAMN

Query: My wife was born in Amarillo on December 3, 1946 to Matilda F. BASHAMN, her natural father had apparantly already died by the time of her birth. There may have been an older brother or other siblings. Since we cannot find any BASHAMNs, Matilda may have remarried and her remaining children adopted by their stepfather. My wife was adopted at birth by Mr. and Mrs. M. F. RAWLINGS of Phillips, Texas. If you have any helpful information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Query: BEARD, Ray and Rose. I am not researching Beard line, but believe Rose was previously md to (Isaac) Clifford Cecil JONES, sometime betw. 1910 & 1920. They were both from Washington Co., OK. Rose's maiden name was Griggs. Family lore states Rose had a son by JONES. If this is true, I want to know who this child was and what became of him. Rose's mother, Alice Griggs, died in Dewey, OK in 1943, obit placed Rose, as Mrs. Ray Beard, in Phillips, TX.
