NOTE: Mary Elizabeth Chamberlain-Bassett not sure, is this a different wife? there is no source for the Crawford- maiden name???
  1. Amos Herbert Bassett married Mary Elizabeth Chamberlain-Bassett on 20 Sep 1871 in Hot Springs ARKANSAS.

Which means either one of the Elizabeth's, both born 1855, were just 16 years old when they married. Not much time to have married previously. AND Eliza Chamberlain-Bassett passed away "Dec 1892 in Moffat, Colorado" age:37. AFTER all their children had been born.

So the first census record that the Elizabeth born VA could be on a census record with A. H. is 1900.
The 1880 census where A. H. Bassett is listed with an Eliza she is born Ark.
The 1885 census she is born VA
1900 census Amos is Widowed
1910 census no wife listed and living with his son. censuses has NOTHING for an "Elizabeth Crawford born 1850-60 either in Virginia or Arkansas, residing in Arkansas 1871 when Amos got married.


Elizabeth was born about 1853. Elizabeth Chamberlain ... as remembered by Terry Wright, Sunday, August 17, 2014.
