Ten years later in 1874, she was married To J. S. Bascom and thereafter they resided in and about Preston. Mrs. Bascom is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Ward of Newton, Kansas, and Mrs. Burdick of Minnesota, and one brother, William Brown of Preston, also four step-children, one daughter and three sons. Though Mrs. Bascom was full of years and ready to be gathered home, yet her going causes her relatives and the great number of dear friends keen regret and deep sorrow.
