Re: The Basye Family in the United States
Shirley, do you know the relationship between Martha and John Basye, father of Nathan Basye?
I think the town of Basye was likely named for John, as he was the first Basye who moved from Culpepper County to the Shenandoah Valley.
By the way, as the story goes, Martha owned considerable land in that area, and was wooed by a man with a nice suit, a winning way, and little more. His name was Bryce.
