My great great grandfather J. (W.)or (M.) Bass I'am trying to track and have the middle initial scrambled some how. I know there is the J.M. Bass which I think is the man, but I have a note in my records referring to him as J.W. Bass. His daughter married a Minatra. His granddaughter married A.L. Loyd. Can you help or supply family tree information?

I am interested in corresponding with anyone who is working on lineages under the following surnames, FOGG, GOINS, RUSSELL. James Russell's daughter, Nancy Jane, married Horace Upshaw Fogg. One of their daughters, Eugenia, married John Williams Goins. I'd like to know more about the older generations, prior to 1850.
