Bunavesta Ann Morrow married Joel Ellis Anderson on July 17, 1874. To this union was born 2 sons (Samuel E Anderson b.1875 & Marion E Anderson b.1877) Bunavista Ann Morrow had three other children by a previous husband Michael Baker m.March 4 1868 (Lewis b.1870, Mary L. b.1869 & William V. b.1873) Lastly Bunavesta had another child Bessie Mae. Joel Ellis Anderson is reported to have died in 1885 which presents the present mystery as to who Bessie Mae's father was. The family story is told that Bunavesta and another unnamed man had become romantically involved and were to be married. The marriage never occurred due to inclement weather (they couldn't get to town due to terribly muddy roads - very bad winter). It is said that the man died of pneumonia due to living in a tent with Bunavesta just prior to Bessie Mae's birth March 9, 1889, and her mother Bunavesta died from complications from the birth of Bessie Mae. Bessie Mae Morrow's grandparents raised her as their own. I am looking for anyone who can assist in determining the missing father of Bessie Mae.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
