Thank you for having the page about Joe up. He is actually my great uncle and I was wondering some things about him, and I didn't really trust wikipedia.

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.

Request for Bashore Family
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

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 Gaston Peacock
Hi Mel,
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.

Thanks,

Alan

Evar Swanson


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."

RE: Harry Craft
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.

RE: Russell Mayo Lyon
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

Russell Mayo Lyon
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.

Thank you

Glad to help! And thank you for linking to his parents. That is very unfortunate about him being a fatality in the drag race.
