55. Louise V. BASSFORD (George Washington3, Thomas2, William1). Born abt 1855-1857 in New York.64,56,223 age 13 in 1870 census, age 17 or 18 at death. Louise V. died in New York City, NY, on 11 Nov 1873.223,224 Buried on 15 Nov 1873 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY.64 Death Cause: Killed by explosion of a boiler.17,224

64 gives death as 10 Nov 1873.

64,17,56`223,224

56. Thomas BASSFORD (George Washington3, Thomas2, William1). Born in Jan 1858 in New York City, NY.94 Thomas died in New York City, NY, on 10 Feb 1909.64 age 45. Buried on 17 Feb 1909 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY.64

64,2,17,56,55,87,94,88,85

He married Mary Ann COMEY, daughter of Michael COMEY & Laura GOUNY, on 12 May 1885 in New York City, NY.88 Born abt 1862 in New York City, NY.88 age 23 at next birthday at marriage. Mary Ann died ? .

57. (son) BASSFORD (George Washington3, Thomas2, William1). Born on 24 Jul 1859 in New York City, NY.87 (son) died ? .

He probably died young.

58. Abraham BASSFORD (George Washington3, Thomas2, William1). Born abt 1861 in New York.56 age 9 in 1870 census. Abraham died in New York City, NY, on 11 Sep 1872.64 age 13. Buried on 14 Sep 1872 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY.64 aka: Abram.64

I assume that the Abraham Bassford, age 13, who died 11 Sep 1872, and is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in the plot owned by George W. Bassford, would be George’s son.64

64,56,9

59. Ida Teresa BASSFORD (George Washington3, Thomas2, William1). Born abt 1862-1865 in New York.64,56,55,96,225 age 7 in 1870 census, age 18 in 1880 census, age 27 in 1910 census, age 67 or 69 at death. Ida Teresa died in New York City, NY, on 23 Mar 1932.64,91,225 Buried on 26 Mar 1932 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY.64

Her birthdate is given as Mar 1876 in the 1900 census,94 but I assume that this must be wrong since she was listed as age 7 in the 1870 census.56 Perhaps she was under-stating her age?

She is probably the Ida T. Bassford listed in the 1920 federal census for Manhattan, ED 675, New York Co., NY, 52 West 96th St., p. 7B204
Ida T. Bassford, female, head, age 40, b. NY, father b. NY, mother b. NY, single
Josephine, female, sister-in-law, age 40, b. NY, father b. NY, mother b. NY, widow
(Several boarders are also listed with household)

If that is the right person in the 1920 census, then she must be the Ida B. Holmes listed in the 1930 federal census for Larchmont, ED 177, Westchester Co., NY, 50 Woodbine Ave., 25 Apr 1930, p. 12A226
Lee R. Holmes, male, head, age 62, b. NJ, father b. NY, mother b. NY,
partner-steel manufacturer, married, age 19 at first marriage
Ida B., female, wife, age 51, b. NY, father b. NY, mother b. NY, married,
age 19 at first marriage
Josephine Bassford, female, sister-in-law, age 53, b. NY, father b. Spain, mother b. Spain,
publisher, widow, age 22 at first marriage
Carl Lar___, male, chauffer, age 46, b. Sweden, father b. Sweden, mother b. Sweden,
chauffer-private family, married, age 22 at first marriage
Dorothy, female, servant, age 42, b. Sweden, father b. Sweden, mother b. Sweden,
servant-private family, married, age 18 at first marriage
If this is indeed the right person, then was she married previously?

I assume she would be the Ida T. Basford, d. 23 Mar 1932, buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery.64 225 However, if so, she must be buried under her maiden name.

64,2,17,56,204,55,94,226,96,95,97,91,225,85

She first married Edward Wildred Clyde FITCH, son of John Lee FITCH & Mary NICHOLSON, on 12 Nov 1925 in New York City, NY.227 Born ? . Edward Wildred Clyde died ? .

1900 federal census for Manhattan Borough, ED 556, New York Co., NY, 7th Ave., 5 Jun 1900, p. 167B94
George A. Bassford, male, head, age 26, b. Oct 1873, NY, father b. NY, mother b. NY,
advertising agent, married 1 year
Josephine M., female, wife, age 23, b. Aug 1876, NJ, father b. Spain, mother b. Spain,

He is probably the George A. Basford, age 29, who died 27 Apr 1903, and is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery, in the plot owned by George W. Bassford.64

64,2,17,55,94,230,229,231,232,85
