Antique Store Finds: Dora "Dade" Basnett (Gardner??)

Another year, another post!

Some time ago I said I’d start posting items from antique stores. Recently I was in Augusta, MO and found two orphan photos. I believe they cost $1/each. 

Here is the first:

Dora “Dade” Basnett

Front of photo reads: 
M Crown, Eldorado Springs, MO

Back of photo reads:
Dade Basnett
Aunt Dade
Age 17 or 18
Aunt Dade was 85 in Nov 1960
Died 1970

She may be the person on this Find a Grave page. If so, her married name was Gardner. She's waiting for her relatives to come and claim her. 

If you are a descendant of Dora's or are of a collateral family and would like to adopt her photo, please leave a comment so we can begin a correspondence. Happy ancestor hunting!
