I have a few misc. notes in my Bashore file and I would be happy to share them. My family is connected to Jacob Bashore who came from Lebanon Co PA to IL.
I don't know if this will help or not but you're welcome to it.
Chester Case Bashore, Esq.
The Bashore family is of Huguenot origin, and the name, according to good philological authority is a corruption of LeBaoseir. They are widely scattered throughout America, but appear most numerous in southeastern Pennsylvania. Many years ago one David Bashore, from Berks county Pa., settled in Cumberland. Little is known concerning his previous history but he probably descended from one George Bashore, who is known to have located in Bethel township, Berks County prior to 1738, and was a progenitor of the late Prof. I.D. Rupp, the historian and the late Hon. Charles S. Wolf, of Lewisburg. David Bashore for some time lived in North Middleton township, two miles west from Carlisle, but later removed to Monroe, where he remained to the end of his days. He was twice married. His first wife was Sarah Miller, of Adams County, who bore him the following children: John S., David G., Daniel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Isaac and Harry. Sarah (Miller) Bashore died Sept. 19, 1850 at the age of forty-nine years, and was buried in the graveyard of the Letort Spring Evangelical Church, near Carlisle. Mr. Bashore afterward married for his second wife Catharine Krysher, a sister of Rudolph Krysher, who for many years was a prominent justice of the peace and active business man at Churchtown. By his second marriage he had no issue. Catharine (Krysher) Bashore died May 27, 1879 at the age of seventy-three years, and is buried in the Mount Zion cemetery near Churchtown. David Bashore was a farmer and followed that avocation till late in life. During his latter years he lived in Churchtown, retired from the active duties of life and died in that town on April 10, 1868, age seventy-three years. His remains are buried by the side of those of his first wife in the graveyard of the Letort Spring Church.
David G. Bashore, son of David and Sarah (Miller) Bashore, was born in Monroe township. He was reared a farmer and agriculture was his principal occupation throughout his lifetime. He married Emeline E. Lutz, a member of another representative Monroe township family whose genealogy is traced to Berks county. She was a daughter of John and Catharine (Miller) Lutz, and John Lutz was a son of George and Catharine (Wolf) Lutz. George Lutz came to Cumberland from Berks County at an early day and settled in North Middleton (now Middlesex) township. He was a wagonmaker and worked steadily at his trade. In 1803 he removed from North Middleton to Allen (now Monroe) township and built a shop where the Forge Road crosses a beautiful stream one mile east from Boiling Springs. Here the Lutzes for three generations engaged at wagon and coach making, and the hamlet that grew up about them came to be known as Lutzetown and the stream by the name of Lutz's run. George Lutz died April 8, 1856 in his eighty-eighth year, and his wife, Catharine Wolf, died August 29, 1848, aged seventy-one years. John Lutz, the son, died March 20, 1881 in his seventy second year, and his wife, Catharine Miller, died Dec. 20, 1880 in her seventieth year, and the remains of all of them are buried in the Mount Zion cemetery near Churchtown
David G. and Emeline (Lutz) Bashore had issue as follows: John E., Ella, Chester Case and Annetta. David G. Bashore died Feb. 23, 1904 aged about sixty-six years and his remains are interred in Mount Zion cemetery.
lso: Samuel Elmer Basehore-The name Basehore in the past three hundred years has been changed many times. Originally in was LeBaiseur. The family were French-Huguenots, and during the Reformation were persecuted on account of their religious convictions and some of them fled to England. One Jaque LeBaiseur and family were members of the French Protestant Church at Norwich, England, as early as 1614. One was selected by William Penn to assist in locating and laying out the "great town" of Philadelphia. In a letter to James Harrison, dated Aug. 25, 1681, Penn names William Crispin, John Bezar and Nathaniel Allen as commissioners delegated to make the survey. The arrived at Upland late in that same yr and the following spring entered upon their duties as soon as the river was cleared of ice. An account against Penn for the performance of this work, settled in 1713, contains the name of John Beazor as one of the acting commissioners. Evidently another branch fled to the Palatinate, or some other Protestant part of Germany whence several of the name came to pennsylvania. The emigrants of this branch were Brethren or Dunkards, a faith to which hundreds of their descendants cling to the present day....a Jacob Bashore appears upon the records of Lancaster county in 1735 and the name of a Baltzer Boeszhaar appears upon the records of Earltown, Lancaster Co as early as 1739.
A John Basehore was a member of the Revolutionary committee of Bethel township. He belonged to the Fourth District Associated Battalion of Militia and in 1775 was a delegate to the Revolutionary Convention at Lancaster....Peter Basehore was Ensign in Capt. Valentine Shouffler's Co, Colonel Greenawalt, and a George Beasore was Sergeant in Captain Thomas Koppenheffer's Lancaster Co Associators, and in 1777 was commissioned a Second Lieutenant. A George Boeshor settled in Swatara, now Bethel township, Landcaster, now Berks Co at a very early date in the history of the country. On Jan. 3, 1733 he received a patent for 100 acres of land on a branch of Mill creek; on March 8, 1734, a patent for 100 acres in Leacock township, Lancaster Co and afterward patents for several more tracts in Swatara twp where he resided. This George Boeshor was the great-great-great grandfather of Samuel Elmer Basehore, the subject of this sketch. H had a son Michael, who had four sons, viz.: Johannes, Daniel, Johan Maichael and Johan Jacob.
Daniel Boeshore, Michael Boeshor's second son was born Sept. 16, 1752 in Swatara now Bethel twp, Berks Co. In 1772 he married Anna Maria Wolf, who was born March 6, 1749, in Amsterdam, Holland, daughter of Paul Michael Wolf, who immigrated from Holland and settled in Bethel twp in 1755. Daniel Boeshor died in East Pennsboro twp Dec. 13, 1822. His wife Anna Maria Wolf , died June 19, 1817 and their remains are interred in the family burying fround on the "Rye Gate Tract." Daniel and Anna Maria (Wolf) Boeshor had four children, viz.: Michael, John, Christina and Elizabeth. Christina, the older of the two daughters married George Rupp and became the mother of Isaac Daniel Rupp the noted historian and genealogist.
