The Bessie J. Harkins buried at Mt. Plesanst Cem. in Union Co., GA, may not be the same as Bertie Samples Harkins because of a variance in the years of her life (1901 - 1980 for Bessie, and 1898 - 1985 for Bertie). Also her middle initial is different. Our gal seems to be the Bertie Harkins listed on the Soc. Sec. Death Index as living from 1898 to 1985, dying in Gainesville, Hall Co., GA.
