      The mother of our subject was Mary, daughter of John Caywood, of New Jersey, who was a Revolutionary soldier, and moved from the latter State to Seneca County, New York,, and took possession there of a soldier's claim. The family is of Scotch descent. Mary Caywood was born August 23, 1794, and she married Samuel Bassett in Ovid, Seneca County, New York in 1810. They resided there until May, 1832, when they came to Michigan and settled in Bloomfield Township upon a heavily timbered farm which they bought from old Peter Desnoyer, of Detroit. They built a log house and having established themselves in the new home undertook to clear the farm of timber.
