14. George Everett BASSFORD (George2, William1). Born on 22 Jan 1859 in Sevastopol, Door Co., WI.2,15 George Everett died in Door Co., WI, on 9 Jun 1888.15

The IGI gives his birthdate as 22 Jan 1859,2 which is before the marriage date given for George and Joanna.3 Is it possible that he was a son from George’s first marriage even though his marriage record lists his mother as being “Alidd J. Ressing”?3 (His age at the time of the 1870 census was given as 12, which would correspond to a birthdate of abt 1858.10 This would put the date even earlier than that given in the IGI.)
