As a hobby I rescue old identified photographs. I rescued one recently that has written on the back "Lon & Lillie Bass and their six boys". In looking at information, "Lon" Bass was married to Margaret Ethel Daugherty, not his sister-in-law Lillie. (She was married to his brother Anderson Cylvester "Cyl" Bass.)

Cyrus Elonzo (Lon) Bass (1877-1938) married Margaret Ethel Daughterty. They had six sons who are identified in the 1910 census as: Llewel Bass 8, Terence Bass 7, Carl Bass 4, Aaron Bass 3, Byron Bass 1 & Croft Bass 0. The photo looks like it was possibly taken in or about 1913. Croft looks to be about 2-3 in it. On there are other photos-one of Lon & his family taken with his parents & others, probably on the same day or at least at the same place.

I'd like to place this treasure into the hands of family. Please contact me for details at: (This e-mail has 2 g's not 3.)
