Since Edward Pass' mother was born in Ireland, I suspect him to be a son of Herman B. Pass who is shown in the 1880 census and whose wife was born in Ireland. She was apparently previously m. to a Gilmartin since ttwo Gilmartin Step-children are shown. I failed to copy the ages on this soundex. Last Pass child listed was Holloway E. Pass. (E. could have been for Edward.) Herman B. Pass is shown on 1900 Shelby Co., TN Cnesus Vol. 29, E.D. 12, Sheet 3, line 7.
