Biography*30 January 1720  On 30 January 1720 at VA An Edward Bass of the Parish of Elizabeth in Norfolk County, Virginia purchased land on January 30, 1720 from Abraham Hill of Nansemond County, North Carolina. The land was 100 acres situated near the head of Horsepool Swamp in Chowan County, North Carolina. (Chowan later became Bertie Countie, North Carolina). This purchase is recorded as item # 1352 on page 114 of Deed Book C #1 of Chowan County, North Carolina which are abstracted in: Abstracts of Wills of Edgecomb County It is interesting to note that Edward and his brother, John, Sr. both bought land on the same day from the same individual. Perhaps this indicates the relocation of the family from Virginia to North Carolina.
Both Edward and his brother John Bass, Sr. owned land on and near Uraha Swamp not far from present town of Rich Square, N.C.
His "Mark" was a sideways "B" with the straight side up that looked like a pair of glasses.

MARRIAGE* Elizabeth Bass married William Bridgers, son of Benjamin Bridgers Sr. and Sarah Bryant
Birth*1745 She was born in 1745.1 
 She was the daughter of Abraham Bass and Mary Rogers
Burial*1845 She was buried in 1845 at LaGuardo, Wilson, Tennessee, She is buried at Davis Cemetery.1 
Death*August 1845 She died in August 1845 at Wilson, Tennessee, The other document of interest is from the Wilson Co., Tenn. Chancery Court Minute Book B:13-14, "Elijah Boddie vs Alfred Bridges & Others." It reads " . . . 22 July 1846 . . . that by the will of William Bridges of North Carolina which was admitted to probate at the November Term 1805 in North Carolina he bequeathed negroes Phill & Grace to the wife of the Testator, Elizabeth Bridges for her life, remainder at her death to his children. . . life estate has expired by the death of wife of Testator who departed this life in August 1845. It further appears at the death of the Testator he had eight children living, to wit, Reddick Bridges, Harty Drake intermarried with Brittain Drake, Penelope Drake intermarried with Richard Drake, Ed, Edward [I believe this should be Edmond/Edmund] Bridges, Sampson Bridges, John Bridges, Micajah Bridges & Henry Bridges.. . ." This is an interesting document because it names children not named in the will of William Bridgers. My guess would be that he had already provided for the children excluded by will.1 
Married Name Her married name was Bridgers. 
MIGRATION*circa 1804 She migrated circa 1804 It appears that shortly after her father, Abraham's will was written she and her two daughters Penny and Hartwell both of whom were married to men named Drake as well as her son Reddick moved to Tennessee. Her other sons apparently stayed behind in North Carolina. 
Will*1845 She left a will in 1845 A correspondent took a picture of the tombstone of Elizabeth at Davis Cemetery, LaGuardo, Wilson Co., Tenn. She died in 1845 and the inscription, according to my correspondent read that she was "said to be 100."

Her will is recorded in WilsonCounty Will Book A:218 and reads, "I, Elizabeth Bridges, being of sound and perfect mind and memory do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following. 1st that all my just debts be paid, 2nd I wish all my stock, household and kitchen furniture to be sold in any way that my Executors may think best, and after paying all my burial expenses, tombstone, etc I wish if means I may have, including money, notes, that may be in my possession at the time of my death together with the amount of sales of all my personal property be laid out by my Executors and so much thereof as may be sufficient to purchase the negro girl now in my possession named Leah and emancipate her, the rights of said girl being in Elijah --?-- at my death and should there be anything left after the purchase of said girl, it to be equally divided amongst my children. Or in case my Executors should fail to purchase said negro girl, Leah, I wish the full amount of my estate to be divided equally amongst my Children & lastly I constitute and appoint J. McClain & Thomas Davis my Executors of this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all other former wills by me made, in witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affix my seal this 8th day January 1841." Witnesses were J. H. Davis and G. H. Love. The will was proven 9 October 1845. Joy Heron.1
