My earliest Bass(e) relative is Joseph Basse circa 1500 France.
My James D. Bass is son of Jesse F. Bass and Mary Lanreth. While Adam Sheek I have is: 1801-1895 had 2 marriage 1-Jamima Spark Fults 2-Charlotte Collier Goodnight Daugherty
wonder where are difference starts.
I found the Indiana connection when I looked up Samuel Bass's family.
