Wife #3, was Mary J (?) who was born about 1872 in Georgia. She was listed a a school teacher on the 1910 census in Irwin County, GA.
|MARRIAGE*||1907 ||Mary J. (?) married Jesse Jasper Holland, son of John Jasper Holland and Josephine Donaldson, in 1907 at Irwin, GA, On the census it appears that his wife's name was Mary J. and her occupation was school teacher.|
Note from Becky Nagle I double checked my census – JJ wasn’t in Wilkinson County with the new wife in 1910 – he was in Irwin County which was 3 counties south of Pulaski and 4 counties south of Bleckley.
His wife was teaching in Irwin and he rented a farm.
I’d love to find that marriage record, but where to look?? He married after 6 SEP 1905 (Mary Lou Vinson’s death date) and on the 23 MAY 1910 census date, it stated that they had been married 3 years…which puts the marriage date between 1906-1907. Let’s say he was ‘courting’ right after Mary Lou’s death - 1905-1906.
Here’s the question… Do you know if between 1905-1907 he was still farming away in GA or had he started his migration to the Florida everglades? I remember Shug saying that he dropped off Duckie, Florence and Bubba with the Floyds to live while Jesse and my grandfather took off – but when?
Mary J. was born in Georgia, so it’s not likely he met her and married in Florida. Do you think it is more likely that a teacher in Irwin Co. was ‘home-grown’ – hiring one of their ‘own’ to teach? Becky.1

|MARRIAGE*||circa 1780 ||Mildred (?) married Sion Bass, son of Abraham Bass and Mary Rogers, circa 1780 The marriage of Sion Bass and Mildred, who later married Shad Floyd, is the earliest documented record of the link between the Bass and Floyd Family of North Carolina. It is interesting that the family linking occurred in the newly created county of Nash for it would be from this county that Fed Floyd and Mourning Bass would depart on the next significant migration of the family into newly opened lands in Georgia. The brothers John and Sion Bass seem to have died rather young. Sion's widow, Mildred married Shad Floyd who was the brother of Fed Floyd who was appointed administrator for John's estate and married John's daughter, Mourning.|
Both the Bass and the Floyd family had come as early settlers to the colonies from England and had slowly migrated from Virginia into North Carolina over a period of 100 years. The process continued into the 19th and 20th century as the more adventurous members gradually moved into Georgia and beyond seeking to better their lives. North Carolina Court Records part 1 (1778-1804) describe a segment of the family's life starting in 1798 where on page 19 Abraham Bass is appointed Guardian to Alden and Kitchen Bass orphans of Sion Bass. In May of 1799 on p. 43 is a note about articles of agreement between Abraham Bass and William Bridgers. On p. 49 is a note of the appointment of George Boddie Esq. as guardian to Kitchen, John, Alden and Quinny Bass orphans of Sion Bass. On pp. 48 and 49 is a note that a division of the Estate of Sion Bass established at this term which division ___ ____ Each Legatee part (cannot read rest - not much here).
Also during the May term of 1800 Court Nathan Whitehead, Benjamin A. Boom, John Edwards, Jason Rogers, John Drake are appointed commissioners to lay off and allot the land which Willis Bass deceased seized of the one six part of the one fifth part of John Parker and wife agreeable to the petition. The court appoints William Bridgers as guardian to the infant mentioned in the above petition.
