Margot:

Thanks a ton! I can already see, just by scanning a few items, that new nuances and hopefully new information may appear. I now believe that Samuel Basse, who lived with Nathaniel in 1623 at Basse's Choice, was his brother and perhaps traveled with him when he when up north on a recruiting expedition. But lo, Samuel stayed in Massachusetts. I have not proved this, but the circumstantial evidence is flooring. This same Samuel Basse, apparently, is listed in Ancestry.com as being an ancestor of John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Samuel was in his 90s when he died, and I checked the dates about a year ago, and they add up as being our Samuel. Put it this way, our umpteenth great grandfather, Humfrey Basse, was an ancestor of two U.S. presidents.

 Sion Bass was the son of Abraham Bass and Mary Rogers
MARRIAGE*circa 1780 He married Mildred (?) 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).

EMAIL2000  According to my information, Quincy Bass was born about 1790 in Nash Co., NC. There is a marriage bond on file in Wake Co., NC dated Oct. 25, 1915 with the bride being Mary McMillian. James Bass was the bondsman. They had one child that I know of, Zachariah. Quincy's father was Sion Bass and his sibs were Jordan, Kitchen (or maybe Kinchen), John and Alden. Sion's father was Abraham Bass who died in Nash Co. in 1805. Abraham's parents were John Bass and Elizabeth Winborn. John was born in Bertie Co. They lived in Northampton Co., NC. - Al Bass. 
EMAIL*2000  Don Floyd says he's seen "Bass Family History" that lists on page xii some familiar Bass names from North Carolina who served in the American Revolution. They are: Council, Drury, Hardy, Jethro, John, Sion and Uriah. There is no indication in the book where this information came from.4 
Note2002  Kinchen P. Bass was the son of Sion Bass and Anna Jones. I have traced one of my lines (my Ggrandmother, a Newsome) back to a Kinchen in Isle of Wight Co., but do not know of a Kinchen related to the Basses.
William J. Kinchen was sheriff of Northampton Co. in 1745. He married Elizabeth Dawson, who was the daughter of John Dawson, who owned land next to our John Bass. John Dawson was a very wealthy man. He is mentioned in my John Bass of Virginia, which you have. Al Bass. 
Note*2002  I have done no original research on Sion or his close kin and know nothing of his or their Revolutionary record. The name Anna Jones I got from one Dena Jones, email address >scott509@bellsouth.net<. You might give her a try. Al Bass.
