Minister of the Gospel.

James C. Bass was born in Chattam County, North Carolina January 24, 1831. In his early years brother Bass served as a minister among the Methodists. David Buck convinced him to take his stand on the Bible alone in 1846 while on a preaching mission to Russell County, Virginia. With the outbreak of the Civil War, Bass enlisted in the Confederate army in South Carolina. He served as a private, fighting in twenty-seven battles. He received several flesh wounds and a severe wound to his right leg which left him crippled for life. James and Martha Bass had four sons and several daughters. His son, Thomas T. Bass, followed his father's calling as a gospel preacher. Brother Bass was active in the East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia Cooperation. He preached for the Turkey Town Church monthly for many years. His final work was with the church at Cleveland, Tennessee. Death came to James Bass at the home of his daughter, Carmon White, in Johnson City, on June 4, 1924. J.J. Musick preached his funeral at the Unaka Ave. Christian Church. His early remains rest in the Frank White lot at Monta Vista Cemetery. --Mary Hardin McCown, Josephine Owen, History of the First Christian Church, Johnson City, Tennessee as referenced in John Waddey's book, East Tennessee Christians, p. 217, 1985.
