Does anyone have information on Gilford Bassett?He was born 1809 in South Carolina.He was possibly the son of William Bassett (b. 1765 d. 1810) and Michal Moye (b. 1780 d. 1812).
Michal's estate probate mentions a child, "Gilford Bassett" and she provides quite generously for his future education and care with her sister, Martha (approximately $25,000 in today's money). The probate records for her estate show that funds for his education were still being withdrawn as late as 1825 by the Moye family. This leaves vague whether Gilford was a child of William Bassett, perhaps born after his death, or an earlier, or later, child of Michal's. He is not mentioned in William's 1810 will.
