You are very welcome. If you find your answer about their deaths, I would be interested as well. The more I do with this activity, the more interesting it becomes.

I am getting ready to upload the pictures for your request and wanted to let you know when I was out at the cemetery there was another Bashore buried right next to the two requested. I took this picture as well since they are probably related the name is W Raymond Bashore. If you have any questions just let me know. Nikky

|Alan Steinfeld||RE: John Gaston Peacock|
Thanks Mel. I'll try to send the Find A Grave folks a message but as you probably know, they often don't respond.
My brother met John Peacock on several occasions but I only recently learned of his baseball history. Thanks for adding him to Find A Grave.

John Peacock is the uncle of my brother's wife. I would like to connect him to his father, Frank Peacock, Find A Grave Memorial# 87686390. Can you do that? I note that Find A Grave is now managing the memorial but there does not seem to be any way to contact them to get this attachment made.

Galesburg's adopted son Evar Swanson elaborated during a baseball discussion in 1972 why he entered a contest for "running the bases" while playing Major League Baseball for the Cincinnati Reds.
During games of a doubleheader on September 15, 1929, Swannie circled the 360-foot jaunt around the bases in 13.3 seconds. Although several have tried to excel the feat, the record still stands 83-years later.
Swannie pointed out that in the earlier days contests including foot races, fungo-hitting, homer hitting, bunting and catchers throwing into barrels were common. He admitted that, "although we participated for our pride, we also did it for the money. I made $75 for winning my base-running contest and that was pretty good money in those days. The most I ever made in one season playing professional baseball was $8,500 a season."

You are welcome, Mel. Thank you for setting up the page, and leaving such a lovely memorial with the Colt's insignia on it. I was touched to see that. Uncle Harry and Aunt Nell were a huge part of my life, and I spent a lot of time with them.

Dear Sir. Thank you so very much for the photo of Russell Mayo Lyno. I will add it to my book.
My Father, Fletcher Adam Chaffin also played in our Mills Mill League in Woodruff, SC. I know everything in the world about him. I only have one picture of him and it was when he was a Mills Mill Miller player. Do you have any other pictures of him in his baseball uniform? Many thanks. Pam Foster

Am trying to get a photo of Mr. Lyon. I know all his background in baseball, but I do not have a picture of him. I am writting a book about textile baseball in my home town along with other chapters of interests. Please if you know anyone who would have a picture please advise me of a way to get a photo of him.
