BAZIN, John A., bishop, born in France in 1796; died in Vincennes in 1847. He was educated and ordained in France, and came to America about 1830. He was shortly afterward stationed at No-bile, Alabama, where he gained the affection of all classes and creeds. He was appointed vicar-general of Mobile, and gave most of his time to the creation of charitable institutions, one of which, a Catholic orphan asylum society, was especially successful. He visited France in 1846 for the purpose of obtaining a body of Jesuits to take charge of the College at Spring Hill, and also securing the services of the brothers of the Christian schools for a male orphan asylum, in both of which he succeeded. In 1847 the council of Baltimore recommended his appointment to the see of Vincennes, but he died a few days after his consecration.
