My connection is with Bessie May Scears, daughter of William Alexander and Hannah Tennessee McCuistion Scears. My research shows she was born Aug-16-1892 in Texas Co., MO., and died Apr-15-1983 in Piedmont, and is buried in Gresham Cemetery. I have her and Joseph's marriage date as Dec. 1919 in Columansville, MO. I have no further information on Joseph.
I have their children as Herbert Angus (1920-2004), Josephine (1922-1932), Troy Kenneth (1924-1986), John W. (1926-2007), Sidney L. (1929-1980), and Nancy Ann (1932-2010).
