The Bass family will be next noticed. The first Bass of which the writer has any information
was Joseph Bass; he married a Miss Jones, sister of John Jones, Bryant and Thomas N Jones. They
settled on Catfish, on the road leading from Berry's Cross Roads to Harlleesville, now the property
of James Berry, and is yet call the "old Bass place;" they raised a family of sons and daughters;
the sons were Joseph, Bryant and Robert, and three of four daughters, names unknown.
