She was the daughter of John Thomas Reasonover (of the Benson Reasonover family, came from Germany to Carolinas to Tennesse to Texas)
Bessie's mother or step-mother was my ggg-grandmother Josephine (Josie) (nee Elkins) Rogers who married John Thomas Reasonover and lived until her death in Kauffman, TX.
We know that John T. had a daughter Jessie Carolyn Reasonover by his previous wife Fannie Beaubien/Beaubein.We don't know for sure if he had Bessie L. and her brother Thomas B. by Fannie or by Josie, though the birth dates indicate it should have been by Josie.
Josie already had daughter Minnie Gertrude Rogers by first marriage to John Rogers.However, they divorced and she married John T. Reasover.
Minnie Gertrude married Nathan Houston McCool and had a daughter, Maud Marie McCool.Minnie then divorced and married William T. Reasonover.
Maud's son was my maternal grandfather.
We know that Bessie's sister, Jessie, married John Thompson and had three kids: Virgil, Hazel (m. Allen), and Leo.We have photos of them along with other (earlier) generations of the family.We also have some info on some of the rest of the family.
