BASS, Pressley Hicks
Pulaski Citizen April 17, 1902.

P. H. Bass died at his home on West Hill Tuesday about 9 a.m. after several weeks of intense suffering from grippe and pneumonia. The immediate cause of his death was a severe hemorrhage from the lungs.

Mr. Bass was an efficient farmer and poultry raiser until a few months ago, when he moved here to educate his children. He has for a long time been a member of the Methodist Church at Pisgah and was a consistent Christian.

He is survived by his devoted wife and four children, three boys and one girl.

After funeral services at the residence yesterday morning, the body was taken to Pisgah for burial.
