"John Basye was born on a farm in Culpeper County, Virginia. When 16 years of age he left home and taught school in Page County, Virginia. He was a member of the Baptist Church. He is mentioned in "The Magazine of American Genealogy", No 26. page 734.

He was married three times. Catherine Basye, his first wife, was his cousin and the daughter of Joseph Basye (D.26). they had twelve children.
