Barbara, You did send me the family of James and Clara Fore, and I guess I did not acknowledge it. The Bessie Lee Fore I am searching for married Richard Clingman Capps about 1925-26 in Henderson County, NC. I have her birthdate as March 1897, so your Bessie, born 1896, is very close. She and Richard Capps had two sons, Richard Lee and Clingman Carter, born in 1927 and 1931. Bessie died February 4, 1932 in Boston, Mass. where she was taken for surgery to remove a brain tumor - so I was told. If we can establish that your Bessie and mine are one and the same, I would love to have the rest of the ancestry of James! What other information do you have about Bessie that might help us make the connection? Do you know where she was born or if the family moved from Arkansas to North Carolina? I was told that she and Richard Capps attended Mars Hill College together, and I have considered contacting the college to see if they have any record of her having been there. I have no idea if tey would have kept records that far back. Please keep in touch and maybe we can find the connection between the families.
