Generation No. 2

2. Nathaniel (BASSE)2 BASS (Humphrey (BASSE)1) was born Dec 29, 1589 in London, Middlesex Co. England, and died Jul 03, 1654 in London, Middlesex, England. He married Mary (JOURDON) JORDAN May 21, 1613 in London, Middlesex, England. She was born Bet. 1590 - 1594 in London, Middlesex, England, and died Jan 17, 1629/30.

Notes for Nathaniel (BASSE) BASS:

Which is in the Possession of Chief Barry Bass of the Nansemond Tribe. A copy of the original document can be found in the State Library of Virginia and reads:

Nathaniell Basse and Mary Jordan was married ye 21 day of May in ye year of our blessed Lord and Saviour 1613

It is believed that Nathaniel Basse brought his children back to London after the 1622 Indian Massacre; however, Nathaniel continued making trips to the colonies.

The first English settlement in the area known by the Indians as Warrosquoyacke (Isle of Wight Co., Virginia) was made by Captain Christoper Lawne, Sir Richard Worsley, Knight & Baronet, and their associates NATHANIEL BASSE, Gentleman, John Hobson, Gentleman, Anthony Olevan, Richard Wiseman, Robert Newland, Robert Gyner and William Willis.

They arrived at Jamestown with one hundred settlers on 27 April 1619 in a ship commanded by Captain Evans. They immediately settled on the south side of the Warrosquoake River (James River) and established the plantation "Warrosquoake", to be known as "Lawne's Creek". When their patent was confirmed it was to become known as the "County of Isle of Wight".

NATHANIEL BASSE and others undertook to establish another plantation in the same neighborhood, to the east, known as "Basse's Choice" situated on the Warrosquoake River (James River) and Pagan Creek. His patent was received 21 Nov 1621 for 300 acres plus 100 acres of marshland. The houses on Captain Basse's plantation were being built when at midday on Good Friday, 22 Mar 1622, the Indians attacked the settlers killing 347 of the 1240 English inhabitants in the 80 settlements on the north and south sides of the river (James). 26 at Isle of Wight were among those killed. The settlers made a valiant defense of themselves with guns, axes, spades and brickbats. It is thought that Nathaniel and his wife, Mary, were in England at the time, and some of the children were at "Basse's Choice" with a nurse. The story is told that five-year old JOHN was one of the children that escaped and was rescued by some friendly Nansemond Indians! His older brother Humphrey died that day. A 1622 passenger list for the ship "Furtherance," from London, arrived in Virginia, lists Nathaniell Basse, age 35. Many ships at that time considered passengers as cargo and did not list their names. Some ships listed the names of the men on board but did not list women and children.

A census taken 16 Feb 1623/24 shows a total of 53 persons living at "Worwicke-Squeak," and "Basse's Choice". Nathaniel Basse and Samuell Basse were among those listed. Capt. Nathaniel Basse, Samuel Basse and William Basse are also found living among the list of 1,033 Early Pioneers of 1624. They are listed as living at Basse Choise, sndx no. B200.

Nathaniel was appointed to the House of Burgesses at the first Legislative Assembly representing Warrosquoake (Isle of Wight) for 1623/24. He was again a member of the House of Burgesses in Oct 1629 and 1631, appointed to Harvey's Council 1631/32 and a member of the Great Council 1631/32. On 6 Mar 1631/32 Nathaniel was commissioned to "trade between 34 and 40 N Latitude, England, Nova Scotia and West Indies to invite inhabitants hither". (If they were tired of cold and damp!) Nathaniel was also commissioned to trade to the Dutch Plantation and Canada. He was given power of Justice of Peace. (Virginia Council & General Court Records 1626-1634)

Basse's Choice originally called for 300 acres but its acreage was closer to 400. Mr. Peter Knight married to Nathaniel's daughter Genevieve, patented 150 acres of the same in 1640 and 255 acres in 1643. Peter Knight sold the tract to John Bland, an eminent London Merchant.

Nathaniel Basse was buried 3 July 1654 in the Church of St. Alphage, Cripplegate, London. Mary, his wife, had died 17 Jan 1630, with the birth of a stillborn son. After Nathaniel's death in 1654, the General Assembly of Virginia in 1659/60 ordered Mr. Wm. Drummond as agent of the Co-heirs of Nathaniel Basse to pay to Theodorick Bland of Westover, 2500 lbs tobacco in settlement of a suit affecting the land.

Pp. 545-552, (March, 1659-60---11th of Commonwealth) WHEREAS Mr. Theodorick Bland petitioned...for damages in a case...against Mr.William Dromond who was attornie of the Coheires of Basse,...

Notes for William BASS:

William1 Bass, born 29 March 1654, married Catherine Lanier who died 17 February 1691/2. He was called William Bass, Sr., on 13 October 1715 when he admitted in Norfolk County Court that he owed John Hodgson 50 pounds of tobacco [Orders 1710-17, 169]. On 17 March 1726/7 he claimed to have cleared lands near the Dismal Swamp which hath been used by his and Their forebears since & before English governance in Virginia. He received a

certificate from the Norfolk County Clerk confirming his rightful possession of the land and further stating that

William Bass, Senr. & ... his sons Wm. Bass, Thomas Bass and Joseph Bass, & spinster daughter Mary Bass are persons of English and Nansemun Indian descent with no Admixture of negor, Ethipopic blood

He was called William Bass, Senr., and was living in Western Branch District of Norfolk County on 6 January 1729 when he purchased 103 acres in Norfolk County at the mouth of Deep Branch for 25 pounds [DB G:fol.35(p.183)]. He was taxable with his son, Thomas, in the Western Branch District of Norfolk County in 1730, 1731 (called William Bass, Sr.), 1732 (with William Horse/Horsey in his household), and 1733-36 living near Richard and Eliza Price and William Price whose wife was taxable in 1736 [Wingo, Norfolk County Tithables, 1730-50, 20, 38, 73, 94, 138, 183]. He was probably in debt when he made his 1 October 1740 will since he left his land to his daughter, Mary, "if she can Save it." (3) The will, proved 17 September 1742 in Norfolk County, mentioned his children, William, Edward, Joseph, Thomas, and Mary (executrix), and grandson, William Bass [WB H:8]. The record of his death on

13 August 1741 is in the Bass family papers which also record that his son, John, and his daughter, Keziah, Jr., predeceased him [Bell , Bass Families of the South, 12].

Notes for Esau Whitstin BASS, Sr:

Military Service: 27 APR 1777 Continental Army - 10th NC Line

1820 Federal census of Georgia lists Esau Bass in Montgomery Co., GA, as head of family consisting of himself and three females as follows: 1 under age 10, 1 between ages 26-45, and 1 over age 45. (Page 7)

1805 In the 1805 Georgia land lottery Esau Bass drew Lot N. 242 for 202.5 acres of land in part of

Wilkinson Co. that became Laurens Co. in 1807. (Page 8; footnote 42, Grant Book, Wilkinson-1,

page99, Dept. of State, Atlanta, GA.)

February 19, 1806 Grant to above noted property is dated. (Page 8-9)

December 14, 1811 Above noted land sold to Joseph Burch. (Page 9; footnote 43, Deed recorded in Laurens Co.

GA, August 21, 1813.)

About 1824 Esau Bass moved to Dale Co., AL. Ezekiel Bass, son of Esau, also moved to Dale Co.

about this time. Esau Bass lived here until his death between 1830 - 1840. (Pages 9 - 10)

1830 Census lists Esau and Ezekiel Bass as heads of family in Dale Co. AL. Esau recorded as

head of family, with 1 male 60-70 years old, and one male 80-90 years old. Ivan Ernest Bas

considered this fact with the fact of Esau's enlistment in the Revolutionary Army in 1777

under instructions calling for only young men, and concluded that Esau was born between

1760-1770, "no doubt very near 1760 and perhaps a year or two earlier". (Pages 9 - 10)

The author of "Bass Family History" was unable to obtain any data on the wife of Esau

Bass, owing to the loss of court records of Dobbs Co., NC, the loss of early marriage records of

Wayne Co., NC, and the loss of Alabama and Georgia records. (Page 10)

The author is positive of only two children of Esau Bass: Esau Bass, Jr., who lived in Burke

Co. Ga, prior to moving to Marion Co., MS, in 1820; and Ezekiel Bass, who lived in Burke Co.,

Ga, until he moved to Dale Co., Al, about 1824. The author wrote that there were probably

other children, in particular the two females listed in the 1820 census. (Page 10)

The military service of Esau Bass in the American Revolution is further authenticated by many

statements of accounts and receipts for Army pay found in the Department of Archives and

History at Raleigh, NC. (page 5)

442 i. Samuel "Sam" (OUTLAW)12 BASS, born Jul 21, 1851 in Mitchell, Lawrence Co., IN; died Jul 21, 1878 in Round Rock, Williamson Co., TX.

Notes for Samuel "Sam" (OUTLAW) BASS:

ABOUT SAM BASS:

Samuel Bass never reached the notoriety of a Dillinger, and will never be venerated a s Grissom is, but he was both a criminal and a native son of near Mitchell, I ndiana. He too entered the domain of the legendary.

Bass was born July 2l, l 85l. That day didn't turn out to be his lucky day. Part of a large farm fa mily, at least partially descended from sturdy, salt-of-the earth German st ock, he was orphaned by l3. He and some of his

siblings, children of Daniel Bass and Elizabeth Sheeks Bass, were taken in by an

uncle, Daniel Sheeks. As the "Ballad of Sam Bass," with its ten verses, goes:

Sam Bass was born in Indiana/it was his native home/ and at the age of seventeen/ young Sam began to roam/ He first went out to Texas, a cowboy for to be..." There i s considerable literature to be found on Sam's short but

dramatic life. It appears he inherited the industriousness and work ethic of his family line , but began to spend his youth in drinking, gambling and other vices. His two-year crime spree of stagecoach, US mail and train robberies made him the stuff of legend and myth. He has been called generous, fun-loving, gregarious and likeable. His career has also been downplayed in comparison to the Reno and James brothers' gangs, and some writers have called him inept. (The Reno brothers were from Seymour, Indiana and the earliest train robbers.)

After the September l9, l877 robbery of a Union Pacific train and the theft of a reported Sixty Thousand in gold, Sam's gang gained celebrity status and spawned a long-lived story about hidden treasure and buried gold.

Those of us who grew up with Saturday cowboy matinees remember Randolph Scott in the role of Sam Bass in the movie "Belle Starr." But Sam Bass was dead b efore Myra Maybelle Shirley Reed married her second husband Sam Starr in l8 80 and began her climb into the history of the old West. Unlike Hollywood's writers who don't bother with facts and truth, researchers into the life an d times of this Indiana "badman" find it difficult to separate fact and fiction. A photo of Sam shows a man with mean eyes, but is this part of the act of a desperado wannabe? Was he a good boy led astray by the company he kept? As a Hollywood screenwriter might have it--just like the finale of the Saturday westerns--Sam Bass comes to an ignominious end.

One of his cohorts becomes an informant. Sam is shot by those legendary figures, the Texas Rangers and cashed in his chips on his 27th birthday, July 2l, l878. While Sam i sn't much of a Wild West persona in Indiana he lies with

or without his boots on, beneath an impressive gravestone in Round Rock, Texas, where each year the bringing down of a Hoosier-born outlaw is re-enacted during annual community festival.

MORE ABOUT SAM BASS:

Sam Bass b. July 21, 1851 near Mitchell, Indiana. Sam hated school but loved horses, hunting, and cards. He ran away from home about 1869. He arrived at Denton County, Texas, where he worked as a teamster, but soon tired of it. He quit to become owner of a one-man racing stable. The jockey was a thin black man named Charlie Tucker. He won many races. Bass's first brush with the law was over a horse racing dispute.

The gang consisted of Sam Bass, Tom Nixon, Bill Potts, Jim Berry, Jack Davis, and Robert "Little Reddy" McKimie.

McKimie was kicked out of the gang after their first robbery, in which he shot and killed the driver. They held up the Deadwood stage seven times, but none of them yielded much. So they decided to try their hand at train robbery.

On September 19, 1877, they robbed the Union Pacific train at Big Springs, Nebraska for $60,000. Barry and Nixon went to Missouri where Berry was later killed. Nixon fled to Canada and was never heard from again. Collins and Potts were shot to death in an ambush at Buffalo Station, Kansas. Davis fled to New Orleans and Bass went back to Texas.

Sam Bass returned to Denton, Texas on November 1, 1877. Bass organized another gang there including Frank "Blockey" Jackson, Seaborn Barnes, and others.

Sam and Jackson and Tom Spotswood held up a train at Allen, Texas, on February 22, 1878. Spotswood later was captured and identified.

Sometime in 1878, Sam got married in TX to Ms. Loterdale (b. abt. 1880 AR). ?? How can this be?? There was a child, Franzine Loterdale.

Sam's father was Daniel and mother was Elizabeth Jane Sheeks. Sam's siblings were: George, Euphema, Clarissa, John, Mary, Sarah, Denton. Daniel's parents were: John and Sarah (Fender) Bass. Daniel and Elizabeth are found in 1860 in Marion, Lawrence Co., IN.

Captain Junius Peak was summoned to Austin by the governor to capture or kill Bass and his gang. He was a good choice since he was a civil war veteran. He was also a law officer and part of the group that ended rustling in Billy the Kid's Land in New Mexico. Also after Bass was U.S. Marshal Stillwell Russell, Sheriff Bill Everheart's posse from Grayson County, and Sheriff Eagan's posse from Denton County.

When Sam got ready to hold up the Texas and Pacific Railroad the second time, gang members were plentiful. Sam Pipes, Albert Heindon, William Collins, and William Scott and nine others joined the gang. This was the first time any of the gang had been hurt. Barnes had four gunshot wounds. One man died. Mesquite was Bass's last train robbery. Posses were after them all over the place. They battled each other across the county. At Salt Creek, another gang member was killed by Peak's rangers.

Jim Murphy cut a deal to save him and his father, in exchange for leading the law to the gang. He set up an ambush at Round Rock, where they would "Rob" the Williamson County Bank.

On July 19, 1878, Bass, Barnes, Jackson, and Murphy scouted the area before the actual robbery. They bought some tobacco at Henry Koppel's store, and when approached by Williamson County Deputy Sheriff Caige Grimes, they shot and killed the deputy and wounded another deputy named Moore. Sam Bass was also wounded in the shootout.

Barnes, Jackson, and Bass quickly mounted their horses, firing at Major Jones, Dick Ware, and a man named Tubbs.

Ware shot Barnes as he mounted his horse. As they galloped away, Bass was shot again in the back by Texas Ranger George Herold.

Sam Bass was later found by the authorities and taken into custody. Sam Bass died from his wounds the next day, on July 21, 1878, at the age of 27. In 1879, his sister came to mark his grave with a tombstone. The cemetery is located off of Sam Bass Road not far from where the dying Sam Bass was found in 1878.

The Round Rock bank that the Bass gang attempted to rob is currently located in Fort Tumbleweed in Liberty Hill, Texas.
