Ringgold County Biographical Sketches

Biographical and Historical Record of Ringgold and Decatur Counties, Iowa
Lewis Publishing Company, 1887. p. 549.

GEORGE BASON

"GEORGE BASON, section 30, Bloomington Township, is one of the enterprising and successful agriculturists of Decatur County, Iowa. He is the son of Griphas and Sarah Bason, natives of Staffordshire, England, who came to America in 1838, and located in Pennsylvania, where he was born. In his early manhood his parents moved to Peoria, Illinois, and when he was twenty-five years of age he came to Decatur County, buying eighty acres of wild land. He married Mary Niece, daughter of George and Verlinda Niece, of Decatur County, and began his improvements in 1872. His efforts have been crowned with success, and he now owns 300 acres of good land, 200 being in Ringgold County. His residence is a pleasant frame building, and his other improvements have been made with a view to providing a home for the comfort and convenience of his family."
