  • Notes 
    • "Bessie was average height, slim, light complexion, a very nice person, liked by all who knew her." She died in the Will Grant house (so called) about half way down Saco Hill on the right according to a letter to Hazel Bradeen from "Bertha" (Roberta Puffer).

      She died as a result of childbirth a few months earlier.
