Notes


NOT PROVEN SIBLING
DOB calculated from marriage assuming he was 21 yo.
The relationship of James to our Etheldred is not known at this time. He could even be the father of Etheldred as we have no indication of his age at the time of his death. Inspection of his estate inventory suggest that he had wife as he had a side saddle and women's clothing.


NOT PROVEN but highly likely is that his wife is Delila PATTERSON - as a Delila BASS purchased the spinning wheel, bed and bedsted, side saddle and cotton cards in his estate sale. A marriage record found in Bullitt Co. KY to Delila PATTERSON is likely this James BASS marriage record (married by Simeion HALL, [Methodist] Min. Squire PATTERSON on 1807 NW Territory Census. Also in Bullitt Co., KY Charity BASS m. John Tixton 1 Jan 1799 assumed for working purposes only (NOT PROVEN SISTER) to be sister of James. John Thickston purchased items in James BASS estate sale AND was held responsible for James BASS's debts along with Etheldred and William BASS. Baptist PATTERSON also purchased items.


James BASS died intestate Knox Co., IN. The estate settlement of James BASS appears to be a typed form document dated 16 Jan 1815. I have attempted to transcribe exactly the contents of these papers. Etheldred was named administrator of the estate bound with the signers. Signed: Etheldred Bafs, John Thickston, Wm T Bafs in the prefence of C. H. Tevenbaugh
Estate papers located in Vincennes University Lewis Historical Library, IN include:
The inventory of the Estate of James Bafs was made by Etheldred T. Bass and certified by Solomon Teverbaugh and Jacob Thorn 25 Jan 1815. The appraisal certified by Wm. Gamble.

Alabama senator, Edmund Winston Pettus and Mississippi governor, John J. Pettus, brothers, were from Limestone Co., AL.


Name PETTUS, Edmund Winston, Born July 6 1821, Limestone Cty AL, Died July 27 1907, Hot Springs NC. Pre-War Profession Lawyer, judge, Mexican War.

Gen., Atlanta campaign, Franklin and Nashville campaign, Carolinas campaign, Bentonville (w). Post War Career Lawyer, US senator.
Notes The last Confederate brigadier to sit in the US senate.


BIO: Brigadier-General Edmund Winston Pettus was born in Limestone county, Ala., July 6, 1821. His father was John Pettus, a planter, and his mother a daughter of Capt. Anthony Winston. By the death of his father, which occurred in his infancy, he was left to the sole care of his mother, a lady of great mental force. After a course of study at Clinton college, Tennessee, he prepared himself for the profession of law; was admitted to the bar in 1842, when he located in Gainesville. Being in the same year elected district solicitor, he held the office until 1851, when he removed to Pickens county. In 1853 Governor Collier appointed him to the same office to fill a vacancy. He was elected a judge of the circuit court in 1855, and
held this position until January, 1858, when he removed to Cahaba. Upon the secession of Alabama he was sent as a commissioner to Mississippi. In the spring of 1861, he in company with Isham W. Garrott raised the Twentieth regiment of infantry, and at its organization Garrott was elected colonel and Pettus, major. On October 8th he was made lieutenant-colonel of the regiment. He was with his regiment under Kirby Smith in east Tennessee in the summer, fall and winter of 1862, and then, going to Mississippi with Tracy's brigade, was in the gallant fight made against Grant at Port Gibson, May 1st. There the five left companies of the Twentieth, under his command, obstinately resisted every effort of the enemy to dislodge them, until flanked. In a daring attempt to bring off Captain Pratt and a portion of his company from their advanced position, which they yielded with great
reluctance, he was cut off and captured, but soon had the good fortune to rejoin his command. At Baker's Creek, May 16th, his gallantry was mentioned by S. D. Lee, the new brigade commander. During the siege of Vicksburg he won additional laurels. At the time of the Federal assault of May 22d, a small body of the enemy obtained a lodgment in a redoubt on S. D. Lee's line, and it was necessary to drive them out. The work was so constructed that the Federals were perfectly protected, and the only means of dislodging them was to retake the angle by a desperate charge, and either kill or compel the surrender of the Federal party by the use of hand-grenades. A call for volunteers for this purpose was made, General Stevenson reported, "and promptly responded to by Lieut.-Col. E. W. Pettus, and about forty men of Waul's Texas legion. A more gallant feat than this charge has not illustrated our arms during the war." In the face of a concentrated fire of shot, shell and musketry, the little detachment, Pettus at the head, musket in hand, rushed upon the work, and almost before their heroism could be realized had captured the Federal flag, and the enemy soon surrendered. After the death of Colonel Garrott, Pettus commanded the regiment, and was surrendered with it, but was exchanged later in the year 1863. On September 18th he was commissioned brigadier-general, and assigned to succeed S. D. Lee and the lamented Tracy in the command of the heroic brigade distinguished at Port Gibson, Baker's Creek and Vicksburg. He and his gallant brigade were in the front of the fight at the opening of the Georgia campaign of 1864, holding their position on Rocky Face ridge, May 8th, against a bloody assault. At New Hope church again they fought in the front line under fire, and at Powder Springs, the battles around Atlanta and Jonesboro, wherever Stevenson's division was engaged. During the battle on Lookout Mountain he led the Twentieth, Thirty-first and Forty-sixth regiments to the relief of Moore and Walthall, and, said General Stevenson, in his general orders of November 27th: "It was Pettus' brigade which first checked an enemy flushed with victory on Lookout Mountain, and held him at bay until ordered to retire. On the next day, on the fight of Missionary Ridge, the whole division (Brown's, Cumming's and Pettus' brigades) fought with a courage which merited and won success." Whatever the issue with other commands, he said, the men of his division could look back to Missionary Ridge with the pride of soldiers entitled to the admiration of their country. In November he led his brigade into Tennessee, and his men were the first to cross Duck river, thrown across in squads, in a single boat, and making "a most gallant charge on the rifle-pits of the enemy, driving a much superior force, and capturing the pits." Both the brigade and its commander were commended by Gen S. D. Lee for their gallantry at Nashville, and the heroism with which they fought as the rear guard to the Harpeth river. According to General Clayton, his division and Pettus' brigade, supported by the Thirty-ninth Georgia, were in line at Nashville after all the rest of the army was in "entire rout." Again Pettus' men stood like a rock at the Harpeth river. In the campaign in the Carolinas, in 1865, he led his brigade in the battles of Kinston and Bentonville. In the last-named battle he was severely wounded. When the war had ended he made his home at Selma, and resumed the practice of law, becoming distinguished in the profession. He was elected to the United States Senate, as the successor of James L. Pugh, for a term beginning March 4, 1897. CMH, vol 7


"Edmund Winston Pettus, brother of the preceding, was Solicitor for the State of Alabama for eight years; Judge of the Circuit Court of the state; Major and Lieutenant Colonel 20th Regiment Alabama Infantry, and Brigadier-General Confederate States Army during the late war. He was a gallant and efficient officer, and received the encomiums of his superior officers. He is now a distinguished practitioner of law in Selma, Alabama."


"Brigadier General Edmund Winston Pettus, b 6 July 1821 in Limestone County, Alabama
Helped to raise and was elected Major and then Lt. Col. of the 20th Alabama Infantry, CSA
Captured at Port Gibson, escaped; promoted to Brig. General in 1863; wounded in the Carolinas Campaign.

Farewell Address from Gen. E. W. Pettus


The following letter was issued by Brig. Gen. Pettus to the soldiers of his brigade, of which the 19th Ala was a part, following the surrender of their army in North Carolina. The letter was read to each company by its commander.


Hd Qrs Pettus Brigade
Salisbury April 28th/65


Soldiers:
You have now served your country faithfully for more than three years. On many hard fought fields your steady determined valor has been proved. In camp, and on the march your cheerful endurance of privations and labor, has won the admiration of the army and the country. Your prompt obedience of orders has justly won the admiration of your commanders. You have won a reputation, as regiments and as a brigade of which you and your dear ones at home are and ought to be proud.
Now you are to be subject to a new trial. The fortune of war has made you prisoners. You are to be marched in a body to your State, and there disbanded on parole. Your valor and good conduct was my greatest joy and pride; and it is confidently expected that the reputation of this command will be still preserved in this new trial. Though others may desert and disgrace themselves, & their kindred, let us stand together and obey orders. In this way we best contribute to our safety, and comfort; and preserve our characters untarnished.


Let our motto be, "Do our duty trusting in God."
