About Deacon Samuel Bass

Samuel Bass Birth: Mar. 25, 1660 Massachusetts, USA Death: Feb. 20, 1751 Massachusetts, USA

Mayflower Descendant - Samuel was born in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts which is located NW of Plymouth. He was the son of John and Ruth [Alden] Bass. He was a 3rd. generation Mayflower Descendant in the line of John and Priscilla Alden who came over on the Mayflower. In about 1693 when he was 33 years of age, he married his second wife, Mary Adams [1667-1706]. I am a descendant of them and their daughter; Abigail Bass-Wild [b.10/03/1697], a 4th. generation Mayflower Descendant, who was born in Braintree, Mass. Samuel died when he was about one month shy of his 91st. year of life. May he rest in peace. THE FINER THOUGHT: How fine it is at night to say; "I have not wronged a soul today, I have not by word or deed, In any beast sowed anger's seed, or caused a fellow being pain, nor is there on my crest a stain that shame has left. In honor's way, with head erect. I've lived today."~~~ When night slips down and day departs. And rest returns to weary hearts, How fine it is to close the book. Of records for the day, and look once more along the traveled mile. And find that all has been worth while; to say: "In honor I have toiled; my plume is spotless and unspoiled."~~~ Yet cold and stern a man may be, retaining his integrity; and he may pass from day to day, a spirit dead, in living clay,observing strictly morals, laws, yet serving but a selfesh cause; so it is not enough to say: "I have not stooped to shame today!"~~~ It is a finer, nobler thought, when day is done and night has brought, the contemplative hours and sweet, and rest to weary hearts and feet, if man can stand in truth and say: "I have been useful here today. Back there is one I chanced to see, with hope newborn because of me."~~~ "This day in honor I have toiled; my shining crest is still unsoiled; but on the mile I leave behind, is one who says that I was kind; and someone hums a cheerful song, because I chanced to come along." Sweet rest at night that man shall own, who has not lived his day alone. ~Unknown~
