History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky, ed. by William Henry Perrin, O. L. Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1882. p. 702. [Harrison County] [Berry's Station Precinct]

A. M. BASKETT, farmer, is a native of Nicholas County, Ky., and the son of Jesse S. and Edy (Victor) Basket. He was born in December 1843. His people were among the early settlers of Nicholas County, his father having been born there in 1802. He was a trader before his marriage, after which he engaged in farming, and continued the same until his death which occurred in 1877, when he was 75 years of age. His mother was born in Nicholas County in 1816; she is still living and makes her home with her son, the subject of this sketch. A. M. was four years of age when his parents moved to Harrison County. He has spent his life at farming, and now has a farm of 124 acres. In 1873 he was married to Miss Minerva Stanley; one child has been born to them, Jesse S. His wife and mother are members of the Baptist Church, and in politics he is a Democrat. Though a comparatively young man, Mr. Baskett, by his energy and good business habits, has acquired a fair property and he is a man of good name and reputation in the community.
