    Richard and Ann are buried on their homestead near West Point, Georgia. There were markers on the gravesite at one time. There is a memorial marker to Richard and Ann Bassett at the Hillview Cemetery at La Grange, Georgia, placed there by Winnie Robinson, a relative. It says "Richard Bassett, Sr., Lee's Legion, Revolutionary War 1760-1840, wife, Ann 1770-1841".
    The following is from Winnie Bassett Robinson, written about 1965."In the Act of December 21, 1830, setting up the Sixth Cherokee Land Lottery, called "The Gold Lottery", Richard Bassett Sr. is found having drawn one of these lots in Cherokee County in this drawing which was held in 1832. The Law provided that before a land grant was granted the fortunate drawer had to live on the property for three years, otherwise the land grant would revert to the State. This grant reverted to the State. Richard Bassett, while living in Washington County, Georgia, had two draws in the 1805 Lottery and drew Land Lot 197 Dist. 24, Sec. W (Bleckley or Pulaski) which was granted Dec. 1, 1807. Bleckley or Pulaski was originally Wilkinson County, (adjoining Washington County), and original County Formed in 1803, then Laurens 1807, then Pulaski in 1808, then Bleckley in 1812. In the 1820 Lottery, Richard Bassett living in Harris District of Morgan County, drew Lot 98 District 13, Habersham. The lot reverted to the State, although he was paying taxes on this lot in 1822."
    From Georgia Military Affairs, Vol. 1, page 3, 1793-1800. Hays. "A muster Roll with an Inspection of Horses, Arms, and Accouterments of a detachment of Militia Cavalry of the first Regiment Washington County in the service of the United States Commanded by Captain Hugh Irwin stationed at Aaron Tices near the Oconee River 1793. No. 19 Richard Bassett, Gentleman of Arms.
    In review of the 1830 & 1840 census of Harris County, Georgia, it still notes a male living with Richard. Since no other record of Nathan appears after his marriage in 1823, this may be Nathan still living with parents.
