The following information on the family background comes from a biography of Peter Bashaw in the Willamette Valley Oregon Biography. As far as can be told from the documentary record, it seems to be mainly romantic fiction. The book was published in 1903. It is included for whatever it may be worth.


The establishment of the Bashaw family is interestingly interwoven in the early history of the country, the emigrating ancestor being the paternal grandfather, who was born in France and sharing a kindred interest in the colonies with La Fayette, accompanied that illustrious soldier on his unselfish mission to the states. From money standpoint a millionaire, he went to Canada on his return from France, and bought landed estates in the northern part of the country.

From the first he espoused the cause of the U.S. and as he had aided them in securing independence from English rule, so he helped them in securing the boundary line east of the St. Lawrence River. His efforts were detected by a spy in the British Gov't who forthwith reported his misdemeaner, in consequence of which his northern lands were confiscated by the English.

While hiding from the British, after disclosure of his part in the boundary question, he was attacked by a bear, a portion of his leg torn away, and he was smuggled into the United States by friends, who concealed him between layers of straw on a wagon.

It is presumed that this adventurous forefather settled, eventually, in Vermont, for here his son Louis . . . was reared and eventually succeeded to a farm. In 1849 Louis located in New York State, where he bought a farm on the highway between Bangor and Nicholville, which was a large farm for New York State, consisting of 75 acres. In 1868 he took his family to Pepin Co., Wisc., where he bought eight acres of land upon which his death occurred at the age of 78 years. His last years were spent in comparative retirement, his health having been impaired during a two year service with the Green Bay Boys during the war.

He (Louis) married Mary Terrier, who was born near the Vermont line in Canada, and who died in Pepin Co. in 1901.


It was also claimed that Louis and Mary (Taryon) Bashaw had fifteen children. Fourteen have been located in the records. There is room for a child who died between Lavinia and Clarissa, but no evidence that it is when the fifteenth birth occurred.
