[Editor's note: Bah-se-nos (spelled above as "Pos-se-naus") died in 1901.  As Wub-e-ke-niew writes in We Have The Right To Exist:

            Bah-se-nos lived in his birchbark longhouse his whole life.  When he died the U.S. Government burned his longhouse.  Bah-se-nos died in the 1901 smallpox epidemic at Red Lake (the Europeans developed a vaccine for smallpox in 1792, and were immunizing many of their own people).  The Catholic Priest, Father Thomas, claimed to have "baptized the old Pagan"[i] as he lay dying in his longhouse, which is false.  Bah-se-nos was buried in the Bear Dodem family graveyard by my grand­father's house in Be-kwa-kwan


[i].Furth, Op. cit.  Father Thomas' statement that he baptized "Bassinas" and gave him Communion and Extreme Unction is untrue, and probably was made because of the pressure, by his boss, about my great-grandfather.
