I think there is a connection here. James Hassett(your James Bassett?) immigrated from County Clare in 1888. He landed in Buffalo and then to Cincinnati. He married Nora Crotty(from Buffalo) in Cincinnati. Nora's parents were Stephen Samuel Crotty and Bridget Griffey. We know Nora had siblings, Simon, Patrick, Anne, Lenorah(could be Eleanor)and Genevieve. James and Nora (Crotty) Hassett named one of their children Genevieve. Another was named Stephen (my father-in-law). Stephen's wife has Lillis relatives on her father's side. I have more info.
