Re: Willis Bass and Olive Chavers

Sherelyn, may I ask where are you located?

You stated " I cannot find as listed on the apps. Elijah, Sr., supposedly left with parents in 1812 to North Carolina and then he moved to Ohio leaving parents (Willis and Olive) there"

Bass surnamed folks from VA/NC show up in Ohio as early as 1830 in the German Twp. Darke County area as early as 1830. There was a very significant early AA settlement in this area named Long/Longtown. And there are any number of Bass & Chavis of various spellings descendants in the Miami Valley area of Ohio.

Best wishes with your Brickwall,

Art Thomas
