This is fantastic information. I have spent hours trying to find Bessie's death information and her family info. Knowing that she has a brother William will help to find her on previous census records. Funny, I estimate their marriage for 1904 just before Alton was born. I estimated her death in Oklahoma, wondering if was during childbirth when Lois was born. I will go to Findagrave.com to search for her burial information. You mentioned you found her as Bessie Elizabeth. On which record did you find this? Do you have access to a scanner to send a copy of the marriage license and a copy of her brother William? If yes, I will reply to an old email we last exchanged. Thanks you so much.
