  • Notes 
    • He served in the Civil War. [11] He is probably the Major Abraham Bassford who shot Joseph T. Donnelly during an altercation at a bar in New York City on 20 Aug 1863. Mr. Donnelly got into an argument with a Col. Mott and while being restrained by some friends kicked Maj. Bassford in the throat. When Mr. Donnelly broke away from his friends to attack Maj. Bassford, Maj. Bassford shot him in the neck. Mr. Donnelly died in the hospital a few days later, and there was a coroner's inquisition into the death. It is not clear what was the final disposition of the case. [64]

      He is probably the Abraham Basford listed in the New York City directory for 1871-4 (business: flowers, 781 Broadway, res. 143 E 120th)

      He is probably the Abraham Bassford listed in the 1890 New York City Directory, who was involved in real estate at 196 7th, res. Hartsdale
