Surnames: Bass, Krier, Clark

----Source: Olson Family Scrapbook

Among the pioneers of the Curtiss area were two whose names also appear in connection with the early history of Marshfield. A. D. Bass, a native of Connecticut, who came to Wisconsin in 1871 and 10 years later to Curtiss, purchased two acres of land on East Fourth street in this city in September, 1890, from Henry Krier and built four houses still known to old-timer here as the Bass cottages. The Marshfield Times of Dec. 6, 1895, announced his death, which occurred Dec. 5 at Curtiss, where he and his partner, Nathan Clark, built the first sawmill. Bass also operated a store for a time, served as Curtiss postmaster and as chairman of the town of Mayville. (Curtiss is located on the line dividing Mayville and Hoard townships).
