Dear Ms. Osofsky,
In your research about early Chabad rebbes, have you come across any with the surname Basin?  My grandfather, born Abram Adolph Basin ~1891 in Starodub, Russia, was the descendant of individuals who were influential in Chabad at the yeshiva in that city, which was closed down by authorities in 1881-82.  My great-grandfather’s name was Solomon Basin.   A known tzadik, he was married to Raisa Kozachkov.  It’s possible, although I cannot document it, that they were related to Shneor Zalman Bassin whose son-in-law was Rabbi Yehoshua Nathan Gnessin of Pochep because of being in close geographic proximity.  I would appreciate whatever information you might have about Chabad rebbes in Starodub and nearby Pochep in addition to any named Basin.  Thank you.
