Steve, That is so kind of you. Here is the story... Bessie was living in Ohio. Her sister Minnie went to live there also and they both cleaned houses for some families. Now where I was told that they lived was Drayton - Draton?? I looked to see if there was such a town. None.. So I thought it would be Dayton. You know how names sound different to the older folks. So this was a long shot. Bessie did end up getting married to a gentleman, but his name was John Earl Schell in Virginia. Bessie and Minnie's madien name was VanWinkle. I don't even have a death date or time. I was just told she died when she was in her twenties. Thanks for helping... I wish you luck in your research.
