Great Article! I have been in hunt for where Bessie is buried. I think she died before 1922 when a friend wrote a tribute to her, but have not found her death or burial. This article confirms her birth and parents which had been in question. She was raised by her mother and step father Edward Grady and always went by the name Grady. Her mother was Mary Ellen Fox. my gggreat aunt.
Thank you for posting this.
