Notes


James William Bass of Pike Co. purchased the SE quarter of the SE quarter of Section 18 in T1N R7W in 8 Jan 1849. James and his wife Angeline are found on the 1850 Census, Washington T. Madison TWP, Pike Co. IN where James is a farmer with the value of his real estate owned listed at $3,000. It appears he has a either a hotel or a large boarding house with 15 other individual over the age of 21 (except one Jane Morris age 10) who are not members of his immediate family.
The record enumerated on 30 July 1850 appears as follows:

Indenture 9 Oct 1849 involving property of James W. and Angeline BASS appear to be perhaps a dour deeded to BASS by Samuel and Charlotte Coleman. Other names mentioned in the document (very difficult to read this copy) are David WILSON and John PANBROOK. Both James and Angeline signed the document and was witnessed by Small BASS J.P. of Petersburg, IN. Small is interesting as he appears on the IN Census beginning in 1830 Pike Co., Knox Co. in 1840 and back in Pike in 1850 and is probably a brother of our James. Wondering if he is related to John SMALL a delegate from the Northwest Territory that nominated Wm. Henry HARRISON to Congress.


A possible cousin of our James is William D. Bass b. Aug 2 1822 (Pike Co. IN) d. Oct 18 1906 married 1) Elizabeth A. ____, m. 2) Rachael Skelton. They and their descendants remained in IN and are buried in Log Creek Church Cemetery, Lockhart Twp.
Pike Co. IN.


The family story is that the Bass's were from in Vincennes IN - and may have been a launching place for the Bass family. Indeed the family legend is correct as James and Angeline are found there with son David W on the census in 1850. It is thought that the migration path might have been west from Vincennes to St. Louis then down the Mississippi River to Louisiana.


James moved his family from Indiana sometime before 1860 as we find James W. with his two sons, David W. and Alfred, Catharine Wright age 85 and Isabella Bass age 25 in Dade Co., MO 1860 census. Where is Angeline? Catharine was living with them in 1850 in IN and continues to reside in his household. The census records are conflicting: age 67 in 1850 birthplace is listed as TN while in 1860 she is age 85 with birthplace NC. She could be old enough to be his mother or grandmother. Where did Isabella come from? She is too old to be a daughter. Did James anticipate the outbreak of the Civil War and being a plantation owner, wanted to get South perhaps even with intentions to join up as we will see that the ink hadn't even gotten dry from the census when James is enlisting in the CSA. Angeline, a proven business woman, perhaps stayed behind to wrap up the estate with plans to join them later. A James W. Bass enlisted in the Confederate Army mustered at Camp Moore (near Kentwood in Tangipahoa Parish) Aug 18, 1861 as a private in Capt. John A. Dixon's Company (Southern Sentinels) of the 12th Louisiana Infantry. He must have received a field promotion to Captain as we find muster rolls that show he was captured at Island No. 10 on April 7, 1862 and taken to Gratiot Street Military Prison, St. Louis, MO. He contracted Typhoid Pneumonia while a prisoner and is recorded on the rolls of the U.S.A. Hosp. Steamer Empress and sent back to St. Louis Apr 26. The notation on this record is "2nd trip from New Madrid to Island No. 10". He was transferred to Alton Military Prison for exchange Sept 7, 1862 and from Alton to Vicksburg on Sept 23, 1862. He was discharged Oct. 23, 1862.


There is another James Bass who enlisted at Camp Moore 5 days prior to our James in Co. K 12th Louisiana Inf. This James is reported as killed at the battle of Baker's Creek in 1863. There is a James Bass on the 1860 Census in Rapides Pa. Alexandria - is this the other James of the Civil War? His neighbors include Eli, Jeremiah, and Emily BASS. Also in Rapides Pa are Gilbert, Josiah, Aaron, Levi, Jerry, Amelia, and Louis BASS. A very rich plantation owner James Bass lives in Carrol Pa. in 1860 valued at a total of $226,000. The relationship of these Basses and the multitude of other Basses in LA during this time period, if any, is unknown at this time.
Our James W. Bass appears on the 1870 Census Louisiana in Cheneyville, Rapides Parish owner of a plantation valued at $25,000. Angeline has rejoined him where her birthplace is listed as PA but in 1850 her birthplace was recorded as IN. James' son DW and his wife Jane are living with them where David's occupation is listed as managing the plantation. John Beale, a farm laborer, age 22 b. England and James Brooks, a machine engineer, age 36 b. in Missouri are in the household. Also in the household are Benjamin Georgiana age 15 b. in LA and Washington Miles age 54 b. in GA enumerated as black domestic servants.


William Bass age 10 lives nearby in the household of Zachariah Townsend age 21 all born LA. I believe his mother to be Nancy Jane BASS perhaps by a previous marriage as a Nancy Jane BASS m. Zacharaiah Townsend in 1869. [S208] [S164]
