  • Notes 
    • Frances's mother, Bessie G. Dorr, died shortly after her birth. She was raised by her grandmother Augusta "Gustie" (Small) and her 2nd husband, Nelson Wallace . She was born in the old Ed Puffer home (then lived in by Roberta Puffer), in the little corner room next to the road. "I remember so well when the Dr. came, he put his satchel bag in a chair and put his coat on it. Mama wanted Cliff and I to go to bed so she told us the doctor had a baby in that bag and put his coat on it to keep the little dear warm, that he was going to leave the baby with Bessie, and sure enough he did, for when we came down stairs the next morning there was a darling baby girl in bed with Bessie". by Elizabeth Roberta Puffer. The 1910 Federal Census shows Frances living with her grandmother and step-grandfather Augusta Small and Wallace Nelson. She is 9 yo.
