Burwell Bass

Unknown, NC
Born 1760
Jefferson County, AL, United States
Died 1831


We know little of the Revolutionary War service of Burrell Bass. He served as a private in the NC Militia with his father and his service has been recognized by the DAR and numerous DAR applications have been approved using his service. We do not know the dates of his service or his commanding officer. [NCDAR, ROSTER OF SOLS FROM NC IN THE AM REV, P 320]. After the war he lived in Sampson, then Anson County, NC before moving to AL. Family lore says he settled in AL about 1813 although he was buying and selling land in NC after that date. In AL, he settled near Elyton’s Big Spring at the head of Village Creek. He later moved to Roebuck Springs up Georgia Road, then moved a short distance away near Trussville.
