Joseph R. Bass, II
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 27, 1786
Dillon County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1854
Dillon County
South Carolina, USA

He was the son of Joseph Bass, Sr and Martha Jones.

He married Mercy Crawford about 1810 in Marion County, South Carolina.

Joseph Bass II, notwithstanding his large family of eleven children, all raised to be grown, by his energy and frugality amassed a large fortune for his day and time; he died intestate, in 1854; his estate was valued at $150,000, unencumbered; his wife, Massey, preceded him to the grave, in December, 1846.

The Bass family, back to Joseph the first, including all the descendants, as far as known, have been noted for their large hospitality. Joseph the second, gave away more at his table in one year than some of his equally well-to-do neighbors did in a whole lifetime ; he and all his sons were close and tight on a trade, exacting to the last cent; but go to their homes, and their hospitality was most lavish.
