Okay, folks...I'm too confused!!!My ggranddad's sister died 2 years ago and left quite a bit of research on our Bass branches. She mentions that an Ivan E. Bass did the first research in 1948.Here is my line that she left...she also left typed biographies by the children of the Bass line, including an autobiography of my gggrandfather when he was on a trail drive w/a brother who was a texas ranger: Zadock Bass and Jane ? married possibly in France around 1820?They had several children, one was Batson Bass.He married a Malvina Waits and they had 9 children: Millard Harrison, Dillard Haney, D. Monroe, Zadock Warren, William Handsel, Jasper Winfield, Hosea Batson, Ella Melvina and Leanna Jane.Someone, please help!!!
