Mrs. Casana Baskin died at her home in the neighborhood of Holly Grove Sunday morning at 2 o’clock. Mrs. Baskin was stricken with paralysis more than twelve months before her death and her health had been very poor ever since. She had reached a ripe old age and was in her seventy-seventh year. For many years she had been a member of the Primitive Baptist church and was a woman noted for her many good deeds and good works. Her death is a very sad loss to the community and has caused a vacancy that cannot be filled. Mrs. Baskin’s burial took place at the burial ground at old Indian Creek church Monday morning at 10 o’clock. Three sons and four daughters survive her. (The Covington Leader, June 17, 1898)
