BIOGRAPHY: - taken from a photocopied page(in possession of Rick Cabell) from an unknown book
BIOGRAPHY: Willis Bass came to Texas before the annexation, Fort Boone at that time was the only place of safety in the State, owing to theincursion of Indians at all points of settlement. He was married three times,and while residing in Alabama accidentally shot and killed his first wife; a year later, however, he married again, and had 13 children. His third wife - andchildren - did not agree very well, and this fact, added to his grief for the accident to his first wife, so preyed upon his mind that he became partialy insane, and at times tried to hire some of his neighbors to kill him. He subsequently improved somewhat, and it was thought that he would fully recover, but at last he found a fitting opportunity and shot himself, dying instantly.
