Unfortunately, I do not have any information regarding Bassett.I looked for his name in the manuscript entitled "A Short History of the Northen Family in the United States (1635 to 1900)" authored by E. E. Northen, and he did not appear.(The Northen name apparently evolved into Northern for some lines).
If you are interested in a copy of the manuscript, your local library can obtain a fiche of the manuscript via interlibrary loan from the State Library of Virginia.
Sorry I was unable to assist you.
