Nathan John Basye (1838-1919)

Nathan was my great-grandfather. He was the commanding officer of Company K,

7th Virginia Cavalry in the Confederate army. He and his wife are buried on what

was his farm on Branch Mountain, Hardy County, West Virginia.


Ann Elizabeth Grady Basye

Ann, or Eliza, as she was known, was the wife of Nathan Basye and my 

great-grandmother. Nathan met her during the Civil War when he went

on leave with Harrison Grady, Eliza's brother. They were married after the end

of the war and spent their lives on a farm on Branch Mountain.

childbirth in 1916 when my father, Floran Basye, was

I created this Web site primarily for use by my immediate and near-immediate family, who are scattered to the corners of the planet. This will enable us all to share information and some photos, which I will recycle from time to time. I also am including my direct lineage back to Edmond Basye, one of three brothers who came to the Virginia Colony in 1666 from Europe. They were French Huguenots who fled from the persecution of the Reformation, it is assumed.

For those Basye family members and others who may have a copy of Otto Basye's book "The Basye Family in the United States", I have made references to certain identifying numbers from the book both in my Photo Album page, and Genealogy page.

Anyone wishing to discuss the family or anything else can e-mail me at "terry@howling.com"
