    Notes 
    • Jonathan fought in the Revolutionary War when he was 17. He served as
      a private in Colonel Freeman's regiment from Massachusetts, probably during
      the final battles of the war. It is thought that he was wounded and came to
      the Valley of the Vapors in 1828 for treatment of his wounds. He established a
      farm on Gulpha Creek where he lived until his death. It is thought that he
      died from malaria. Records show a gift of land and slaves to Lydia from
      Jonathan just before he died. The record reads,"deed of gift and conveyance
      from Jonathan Bassett, being low in bodily health but in full enjoyment of
      mental faculties, to HIS BELOVED AND DUTIFUL DAUGHTER, LYDIA BELDING." This
      land he gave Lydia was land he had purchased from Ludovicus Belding on 11 Jul
      1832.
