Researching the BASS,DAVIS, OLIVER, WILSON, CREWS and ROTAN families of IL. I am not sure if our BASS family was in Union Co, IL but a person who is very familar with Union Co, IL told me I should research this County for our BASS family.
Jacob BASS was born abt 1825 possibly in Sevier Co, Tenn. He married Nancy J. DAVIS daughter of William DAVIS and Phoebe CREWS in 1845 in Fayette Co, IL. Children of Jacob BASS and Nancy DAVIS born between 1846 and 1865 were:
John Marshall, Henry, Elizabeth, Francis Marion,
Hardin, Caroline, Jasper N. and Elvina (Levina) BASS.
Francis Marion BASS was born 1851 in Kinmundy, Marion Co, IL,died 1927 in Montgomery Co, MO,and was married in 1873 to Harriet Ann OLIVER born 1853 the daughter of Wesley Smith OLIVER and Mahala WILSON.
Harriet Ann BASS died 1932 in MO. Children of Francis Marion BASS and Harriet Ann OLIVER born 1874 to 1891 were:
Lillie Mae and Bertie Mae- twins., Luther, Nora Maude, Anna Lee,
William Oscar, Della Mae, Dora Alice and Oliver Francis BASS.
Bertie Mae BASS was born May 1874 in IL, died Jan 1948 in Jackson Co, Mo and married Minnie Mahala ROTAN born 1878 in Mo, the daughter of Sarah OLIVER and Wm. E. ROTAN.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Nancy
