SOURCES:

My first source of info for all this page is my father's late brother, James Bassett Gwin II.  Page 46 is entitled BASSET FAMILY HISTORY and starts out:

"Compiled by James Basset Gwin II of 2918 45th St., New Orleans 20, LA in the year 1949 from records submitted from the collections of Kate L. Gwin Tuscaloosa Al, and Edith Snow, Washington, DC.  Information obtained from Major Champe Carter McCulloch who employed genealogists to trace this ancestry."  Below is my (John M. Gwin's) transcription of two entries from The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy entitled McCULLOCH, Emma Maria Basset (Mrs. Champ C.) and McCULLOCH, Champe Carter, Jr., respectively, a copy of which was mailed to me by Mr. Martin Skubinna.

My second source is Mr. Jeffrey Neil Bassett, Jnbassett@aol.com, who saw my Genforum post and sent me information he said came from Elizabeth Nitschke Hicks.  I cut his info apart and added each piece where it was applicable.  Thus each note preceded by JB/ENH came from him. He also sent me, in August 2004, data from the 1850 US Census of Matagorda Co., TX.

And now my third source is Ms. Elizabeth (Liz) Nitschke Hicks herself , erootrot@usa.net , my third cousin once removed through this Basset line, who has sent me photos and photocopies of numerous articles, selections from books, and other documents (identified below).

A fourth source is the 1880 U.S. Census of Waco, McLellan Co., TX.

Fifth Cousin Kathy Kemp and her husband Paul, who live in Waco, have sent me a copy of  Early Homes of Waco by L.J. Barnes, in which are photographs of the McCullochs  and their home (see photos below).  They put in some miles walking the day they went over to tour the estate, then she typed much data for me as well--THANKS, guys!

The first wife of fourth cousin Champe Carter McCulloch IV, Carol Long McCulloch, contacted me in Sep 2004 and provided several corrections and additions to this page, all of which appear in this color type.]

Fourth cousin Champe Carter McCulloch Powis contacted me in Oct 2004 and provided several corrections and aditions to this page, all of which appear in this color type.]

"SARAH BASSET.
Died
Mar. 31, 1885
Aged 59 Y'rs.
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

Right: Her obituary from the next day's Waco paper.

From the Waco Daily Examiner (Waco, Texas) Wed., 1 Apr 1885 (photocopy sent in by Liz Hicks):
"DIED.

Mrs. Bassett has resided in Waco for the past twenty-five years, and no one was more honored and esteemed.  Loved by every one who knew her, made life worth living, but when the angel of death hovered over her and the Christian spirit took its flight home to the God she worshipped, she calmly and peacefully slept.  A gloom will be cast over her large circle of friends when it is learned that this aged lady is no more, but they will all know that such a true woman as she has always shown herself to be, is now at rest.   Mrs. B.'s husband died many years ago, and she leaves one child, a daughter, Mrs. C. C. McCulloch, with whom she lived at the time of her death.

The funeral will take place at 4 o'clock this afternoon from St. Paul's church, Rev. Francis R. Starr, officiating.  Interment in Oakwood Cemetery.

Louis Basset 36 M England Grocery keeper We've been looking for Louis' place of death and burial for a long time. Knowing now that he resided in Matagorda with his family makes us believe that this may be his final resting place. I wrote to genealogist Carol Gibbs of Matagorda, who responded:
I did see the family on the 1850 and then the wife and daughter in 1860. They were living in the town of Matagorda both years and in their own household in 1850. It appears the wife and daughter were living in the Colorado House which was the hotel owned by Galen Hodges. Hodges owned a home next door, but looking at the list, I believe it is the list of hotel occupants.
 
We do have cemetery records for Matagorda Cemetery, but Mr. Bassett is not listed. There is no one by that name in our list at all. I'm sure if he died in Matagorda between 1850  and 1860, he would be there. The grave might have been marked at one time, but due to hurricanes (at least 5 bad ones since his death) the marker could have been washed away. If the marker was wooden, it would not have lasted this long.

Sarah Basset 24 F Alabama
Sarah Gwin Basset is the daugher of John and Jane Walker Gwin.

Emma M. Basset 7 F Alabama
Emma M. Basset is the only survivor of two known children. She married C.C. McCulloch and had many descendents.
James S. Basset
6 M New York
James S. Basset is most likely the only child of Louis' brother James Basset who married Mary Snewin in Worthing, England, and took her to New York. I believe they may have died there and Louis may have brought the son, James, to Matagorda to live with James' blood relatives. The middle initial "S" is probably for his mother's maiden name, Snewin.

He does not appear with Sarah and Emma in 1860 and is presumed to have either died or returned to New York. We've not found him anywhere in 1860.

This is our Champe Carter McCulloch, owner of a retail Dry Goods Mercantile and Grocery in Waco. He and Emma will purchase the brick home on Columbus Street that will stay in the family for many years and today is a museum housing artifacts that belonged to this family. I have been in the house, thanks to the hospitality and thoughtfulness of Paul and Kathy Kemp of Waco. She's my 5th cousin.

Emma is 1st cousin through her mother to my g-grandpa William Sutton "Sutt" Gwin and also 1st cousin through her father to Sutt's wife, my g-grandma Ida Eliza Basset, making her some sort of a double first cousin thrice removed to me! Nevertheless, while Sutt and Ida are both first cousins to Emma, neither is  blood related to the other. Someday I'd like to see this sorted out correctly...

OK, maybe the 1920 census taker assumed her parents to be b. in TX...anyway, Grace got them right in 1930.






NOTES ON LOUIS BASSET AND SARAH GWIN
  • JB/ENH notes:    53B16. Louis Lavalette Basset - b. 27 Feb 1814; d. during the Civil War having fought for AL.
  • Some John Gwin observations and questions:  But the 1860 Census report from Matagorda Co., TX, below, sent to me by Liz Hicks, shows Sarah and daughter Emma living there alone.  Alabama didn't even enter the War until 1861, so he couldn't have died in the war before that time.  On the other hand, if he did die before 1860, why would they have moved to Texas after he died?  Perhaps they all moved to Texas for protection from the coming war, then he returned to Alabama to serve.  Whew!
  • The book Memories of Old Cahaba contains an appendix of the official roster of the men who served in the "Cahaba Rifles", and the only two Bassets or Bassetts there are James and P.L., both believed to be sons of Louis' brother and wife (William and Harriet Bowley Basset); therefore, Louis must have lived in another county than Dallas.  Sure enough, the entry below from the book Early Homes of Waco and the People Who Lived in Them says that she was born in Tuscaloosa, Tuscaloosa Co., AL.
  • Excerpts from the book Memories of Old Cahaba (photocopies of several pages sent to me by Liz Hicks):   From the chapter entitled Church History:
  • "Taken from the Cahaba Church book, containing the names of the subscribers, the amount subscribed by each, together with the names of trustees, title papers, etc.:  CAHABA, ALA., December 10, 1839.  Names of persons who subscribed money for the first church ever built in Cahaba: ...Louis Bassett...The list contains the names of fifty-two persons, all of whom have passed into the 'great unknown'."
  • Excerpts from Early Homes of Waco and the People Who Lived in Them by Lavonia Jenkins Barnes (photocopies of several pages sent to me by Liz Hicks--publisher and date unknown as yet to me):
  •         "At 406 Columbus Avenue stands a landmark familiar to all Wacoans, the beautiful C. C. McCulloch home...
            "On January 3, 1871, they sold the property to Champe Carter McCulloch and his wife Emma Bassett McCulloch...
            "C. C. McCulloch came to Texas by way of Missouri, having been born and reared in the state of Virginia. [John M. Gwin Note:  but C.C. McCulloch himself states in the 1880 Census that he was b. in MO and that his parents were b. in VA.]  He came to Waco after the close of the Civil War, in which he had fought, and there he met and won the hand and heart of the fair and talented Miss Emma Bassett, to whom he was married in 1869.
            "The former Miss Emma Bassett was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and moved to Corsicana, Texas, with her mother after she reached maturity.  She came to Waco to fill (a) vacancy created at the Waco Female College...
            "...Miss Bassett, due to her splendid record at Waco Female College, was employed by Waco University and there she taught until her marriage.  (In 1886 Waco University merged with Baylor of Independence, Texas, forming Baylor University, Waco.)
            "...Mr. McCulloch died in the house in 1907 and Mrs. McCulloch died there in 1929.
            "...It is a house which has long endured and withstood both the joys and the sorrows of a large family, for to the McCullochs were born ten children, three daughters and seven sons, seven of the ten having lived to maturity...and today (the house) is a haven for the widow of (their son) Louis McCulloch..."

    Hi John,
     
    We at last found something on McCulloch!  Paul and I went to the library this morning and the following is what we found. Don't know if you have all of this or not so here goes.

    C.C. McCULLOCH, Mayor of the city of Waco, was born in St. Clair county, Missouri, in 1841, the eighth of a family of nine children. 

    His father. W. H. McCulloch, was born in Virginia in 1790, and emigrated to Missouri at a very early day.  He was at one time Clerk of St. Clair county, and was a soldier in the war of 1812, attaining the rank of Captain.  He was married to Miss Mary Carter, of Virginia, and reared a large family, only four of whom are living at the present time.

    C.C.,  the subject of this notice, received his education in a private school in Rockbridge county, Virginia, and at the tender age of thirteen, began to experience the responsibilities of life.  He began his business career as a merchant's clerk, and from the age of seventeen to nineteen he tried his hand at agricultural pursuits, tilling the soil and raising live-stock.  At this time the war between the North and the South arose, when all industries were abandoned.  He enlisted in the Second Missouri Cavalry as Brigade Adjutant, and participated in all the important battles of the Trans-Mississippi department north of Louisiana.  In the later part of 1883 he left the service on account of ill health, but was afterward attached to the Ordnance Department.  He was at Shreveport, Louisiana, when the war closed and peace was dedicated.
     
    Mr. McCulloch came directly to Waco and embarked in the mercantile business.  From 1867 to 1869 he was in the employ of Sherman Brothers, of New York city, a large hardware firm.  In April 1886, he was elected Alderman of Waco, for the First Ward, and re-elected in 1888.  In 1890, he was elected Mayor, and re-elected in 1892, and is now serving his second term in that position.  During his term as Mayor great advances have been made in the improvement of the city.  The City Hall has been built, the streets have been paved, the suspension bridge has been purchased from the stockholders, and sewage lines have been laid.  He is a warm friend of the public-school system,  and has in every possible way aided and encouraged educational enterprises.
     
    In 1867, Mayor McCulloch was married to Miss Emma Bassett of Alabama, and they are the parents of ten (10) children, seven of whom are now living, namely: C.C., Jr., is a graduate of the University of Virginia, in the literary and medical departments, and is now Assistant Surgeon of the United States Army at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas.  He is regarded as one of the best educated men of his age in the country, and probably holds as many college degrees any man of his age in the United States.  His record in the past has been, indeed, remarkable.  For his wife, he married Miss Letta, a daughter of D.R. Gurley, of Waco.  Mayor McCulloch's second child is Sallie, a graduate of the St. Louis Conservatory of Music, who completed her musical education in New York city.  The other children are Roy, Louis, Adele, Shirley and Grace.  The family belong to the Episcopal Church.
     
    The Mayor is a member of the Masonic order, Waco Lodge, No. 92, and the Knights of Pythias, Cowan Lodge, No. 77.

    Paul and I will try to go this week-end during the open hours and see inside of the house and take pictures if we are allowed to or maybe they will have a book of some kind that we will be able to purchase.
     
    We took pictures of the front, right side, and the back of the home.  Couldn't get to the left side (facing the house).
     
    As soon as we check it out this week-end and have the film developed, we will send snail mail to you.  This sound good?  We are really excited for you.  I noticed that 2 of the Gwins married Wilsons?  How does that tie in to us? Or does it?  Haven't had time to read all of the information on the new revised version of the Gwins.
     
    Family love to all of you,

    John, we also pulled a picture from the book of the McCulloch house, 407 Columbus,  1969. Another one showing original lower gallery, about 1918.  A picture of Mrs. Emma Bassett McCulloch, one of Mr. Champe Carter McCulloch.
     
    The following is from Early Homes of Waco and People Who Lived in Them

    At 406 Columbus Avenue stands a landmark familiar to all Wagons, the beautiful C. C. McCulloch home. Build on a portion of the Thomas Jefferson Chambers Grant,  from Coahuila and Texas, the property passed through many hands before it was purchased by Josiah HE. Caldwell and his wife Maria on August 27, 1866, for the sum of five hundred dollars.
     
    The Caldwells built the one-story structure, which is now the east wing of the residence, and lived there about five years.  On January 3, 1871, they sold the property to Champe Carter McCulloch and his wife, Emma Bassett McCulloch, for six thousand dollars in gold.  The deed conveyed lots 1, 2, 3, and 4 and part of lot t, in block number 27, all of which property was situated on the south side of Barron's Branch.  The tract was bounded on the east by Fourth Street, on the south by Columbus, and on the west by Fifth Street.
     
    Champe Carter McCulloch came to Texas by way of Missouri, having been born and reared in the state of Virginia.  He came to Waco after the close of the Civil War, in which he fought, and there he met and won the hand and heart of the fair and talented Miss Emma Bassett, to whom he married in 1869.
    The former Miss Emma Bassett was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and moved to Corsicana, Texas, with her mother after she reached maturity.  She came to Waco to fill the vacancy  created at the Waco Female College by Professor E. W. Kraus, who taught music and penmanship there, but who went away to fight for the cause of the Confederacy.
     
    (Waco Female College was a Methodist institution, whose property was in turn sold to Add-Ran College,; in time Add-Ram became Texas Christian University of Fort Worth and today is situated many miles from its birthplace.)
     
    Upon the return of Professor Krause, Miss Bassett, due to her splendid record at Waco Female College, was employed by Waco University and there she taught until her marriage.  (In 1886 Waco University merged with Baylor of Independence, Texas, forming Baylor University, Waco.)
    Upon purchase of the Columbus Avenue property in 1871, the McCullochs set about building their home, then considered some distance from the heart of the thriving young city.
     
    According to their son, the late Louis McCulloch, the timber for the house was carefully selected and hauled by ox cart from a distant mill; the rose-pink brick was procured from a local kiln.
     
    If you would like, you may come along for a vicarious visit to this charming neo-classic house.  By walking up a winding path which bypassed the one-story wing, you will then come to the circular concrete steps which lead to the front door.  (These steps were built when the original wooden gallery was removed, at which time a flagstone floor was laid on the ground.)
     
    The entrance is simple and dignified with a paneled door which is flanked by glass panes.  The four great columns of the portico, which support an upstairs gallery and, in turn the roof, are fluted and of the Doric order.  The windows on the first floor are full length, and over each there is painted a white architrave; every window in the house repeats this motif.  This was a design, no doubt, in imitation of stone and is to be seen in several Waco houses of similar age.  The spindles across the upstairs gallery are well-turned and add much charm and a feeling of classicism to the entire structure.
     
    The one-story wing, which consists of two rooms, and which once formed the master suite, creates a quaint effect with the slender columns which support its portico.  Two outside chimney stacks may be seen on the east wall of this wing, one quite large, while to the left of the main structure is located the kitchen wing with a balancing chimney stack.
     
    Its interior architectural elements of wide random-width floor boards, deeply-paneled casements, and high ceilings all contribute to a sense of undeniable charm and spaciousness.
     
    A wide divided hall extends along the east side of the main structure, running from the front door to the back door, which opens onto a narrow back gallery.  To the left of the entrance hall is located the parlor and just back of it the dining room.  From the dining room one goes directly into the kitchen wing.
     
    In the back hall a narrow, well-proportioned stairway rises along the east wall, from north to south, and near the top it describes a gentle turn in reaching the second-floor hall.
     
    Opening from this hall are two spacious bedrooms, exact in size and location to the parlor and dining room beneath them.  These bedrooms utilize the chimney stacks of the rooms beneath them; these four rooms may thus be warmed by two chimneys.
     
    A third and smaller bedroom, over the back hall, once looked out over century-old trees in a back yard which extended some three hundred feet to the banks of Barron's Branch.
     
    The most notable decorative achievement in the house was the wallpaper in the parlor.  These walls were hung in a Mille fleur tapestry design paper, the colors mingling to create a mauve effect.  The ceiling paper was inlaid in strips which produced the effect of a hand-woven rug.   The dyes used in the paper were of lasting quality, for the reds and blues remained as vivid as they were the day the room was completed.  To lower the height of the walls, the ceiling paper was brought down about twelve inches onto the walls and bordered with gold-leaf moulding.  The artisan who decorated this room, and he was surely no run-of-the-mill paper hanger, created designs from the paper used on the walls and applied them to the corners of the ceiling.  The effect was unusual and elegant.
     
    Peering from an ornate oak frame hanging in the stair hall, Champe Carter McCulloch, creator of this beautiful landmark, looks across to an adjacent wall and seemingly approves of an excellent print of the house done in sepia tones.  The print was clipped from a fashionable magazine which depicted fine houses of the day.  It shows the house and gardens in their pristine beauty, with a carriage drive bordered in Spanish dagger.  The caption reads, "The old South."  Mr. McCulloch died in the house in 1907 and Mrs. McCulloch died there in 1929.
     
    In the 1953 tornado, the house suffered a great deal of damage from wind and rain, and the unique parlor paper was completely destroyed.  The house has now been restored and remains in the McCulloch family.
     
    It is a house which has long endured and withstood both the joys and the sorrows of a large family, for to the McCullochs were born ten children, three daughters and seven sons, seven of the ten having lived to maturity.  The Columbus Avenue house remained "home" to all of them, and through the years they departed and returned, and were always welcome.  It served as their rock, root, and anchor, and today it is a haven for the widow of Louis McCulloch, known to her many friends as a noble and valiant lady.

    Champe Carter McCulloch Powis, b. 1934, #7.2 above, mailed me the following addenda in Oct 2004, which appears there in this color:
    Hello John,

     1.  Emma Maria Basset died in 1928, not 1929. She was actually married in 1867 as you determined.
     2.  William Horsley McCulloch was born in 1791 not 1790.
     3.  Mary Champe Carter died in 1879.
     4.  Mary Azelete Gurley's dates are 1869-1930.
     5.  Alfred Powis Jr (1902-1959), my father. He was Canadian Branch Manager for Chubb & Son (insurance underwriters), not International Silver).
     6.  Alfred Powis III (my brother) was first married to Shirley Foster Haldenby in 1953. She was born in 1931. He later married in 1977 Louise Margaret Finlayson (born 1941).
     7.  Alfred's son Timothy Alfred Powis was born in 1955.
     8.  I was born in 1934. My wife Barbara Minnes Plow was born in 1935. We were married in 1957.
     9.  My son John Carter Powis' wife's name is Mary Kate, not Kay. They were married in 1986.
    10. Carter (he goes by that name) and Mary have 2 children: Robert Carter Powis (uses Carter), born in 1992, and Phillipa Grace Powis, born in 1994.
    11. Our other son, Graham Andrew Powis (born in 1968) is married to Diane Meryl Romley (born in 1967).   They were married in 1994.    They have 2 children : Benjamin Andrew Powis (2000) and Sarah Meryl Powis (2003).
    12. William James (married to my Aunt Mary) died in 1940. Their daughter was Mary Celeste James who was born in 1910. I'll have to check out her death date which was roughly 2001 or 2002 (guess).
    13. Champe Carter McCulloch IV was born in 1945.
    I have some printed stuff that I'll pull together and send on to you in due course. Hope this helps.
    Regards, Carter



    I have gleaned these tidbits from the wonderful site at of the Historic Waco Foundation, 810 South 4th Street, Waco, TX 76706 (Phone: 254/753-5166; Fax: 254/714-1242) located at at http://www.historicwaco.org/mc.html:

    "The historic McCulloch House was begun in 1866 and completed in 1872. Dr. Josiah H. Caldwell, a Waco physician, and his wife built the house in 1866.

    "Mr. and Mrs. Champe Carter McCulloch purchased the house in 1872. Mr. McCulloch was a prominent Wacoan. He was a local merchant who made frequent trips to New York to buy merchandise for other Waco merchants. He served as Mayor for about 11 years. He and his wife, Emma, had ten children. The last descendant, a daughter-in-law, lived in the house until 1971.

    "Emma Bassett, later to become Mrs. McCulloch, was brought to Waco from Corsicana, Texas, by buggy, to teach piano and penmanship at the Waco University when the teacher of those subjects left for the Civil War.

    "Mr. McCulloch was a staunch Episcopalian and served as senior warden when the church was in South Waco as well as when it moved across from his residence at 4th Street and Columbus Avenue. One son, Louis Bassett McCulloch, lived in the McCulloch residence until he died.

    "Champe Carter McCulloch gave his wife Emma Bassett McCulloch the original McCulloch Family Bible circa 1874. Recorded in Emma's own delicate hand are all her family's births, deaths, and marriages." The Bible remains at the museum.
