Assisting my mother-in-law in tracing their family.She is grand-daughter of Bessie Matilda Delano born 14 Nov either 1885 or 1890 (?)Bessie married Richard Connor Reid (either in Baltimore or they moved to Baltimore, MD - Richard died shortly after birth of their twins and was a photographer).According to Bessie's last remaining child, Doris Reid (now in her 90's and in a nursing home so take with grain of salt please!) Bessie was a registered nurse and came from Warsaw, Virginia.In fact "Aunt" Doris remembers her mom, Bessie, taking the siblings to Virginia to visit with relatives.Additionally, "Aunt" Doris made a trip to Warsaw in 1974 and I have a letter she sent to family (with a few pages of an elaborate family census that lists "Bessie Matilda Delano" as daughter of Matilda F. Clarke and George Taylor Delano) after visiting with a cousin "Billy" who came from the Dandridge Davis side.
I am trying to get more info, and verify any records relating to Bessie that anyone may have, as the problem is she went by so many different names.Her death cert. in Baltimore shows "Bessie Delano Reid" but on her daughter's birth cert she is listed as "Bessie Dulaney" and elsewhere as "Elizabeth Dulany".
Should anyone have any records, family bible pages, etc. that can assist, if you could contact me that would be most appreciated. Thank You!
