Basil Meek
Added by buffalotipis on 29 Mar 2009
Basil Meek was born in 1774 in Ellicott's Mills, MD. He came, with his parents, to Shelby County, Kentucky in 1788 and settled on Drennon Lick Creek in what is now Henry County. He is mentioned in John Meek's will. Basil appears in the 1800 census of Henry County. He received 100 acres on Drennon Creek according to a deed record dated 15 Nov 1800. This is likely the partition of his father's original farm. He sold that land 10 Jan 1807. On 10 May 1810 he purchased 140 acres, again on Drennon Creek, and sold that land on 23 Aug 1815. Deed records indicate that on 24 Jun 1818 he received 100 acres from a son named Jeremiah.
He is listed as Bazil Jr. in the 1810 and 1820 census. He can be distinguished from the other Bazel by the size of land in the tax records. He paid taxes on this land through 1829. He does not appear in the 1830 census of Henry County. It is believed that he moved to Hancock Cou., In in 1828 or 1829 and appeared in the 1830 census of that county listed as Bazel Meek Sn. A land grant signed by President John Q. Adams date 3 March 1828 refers to Basil Meek of Henry Cou., In. The land is described as the E 1/2, SE 1/4/, Sec 32, T 1N, R 8E.
He died in Hancock County on 19 Oct 1830 and is the Bazell Meek Sr. referred to in the 1830 probate records. A probate record from Hancock County dated 15 May 1838 mentions his heirs. A related deed record from Henry Co., Ky dated 13 July 1836 listhis children while clarifying the probate redord.
His wife's name is mentioned in deed records. Elizabeth was born between 1770 - 1775 according to census record.
