|Birth: ||Oct., 1859|
Bettie was born in Arkansas according to the censuses to William and Mary Reed. She married first to a Mr. Queen about 1875 in AR and had two children: Mary E. Queen (b. 7 Feb 1877 and married Joseph N. Sneed) and Polly J. Queen (b. c. 1879 and married S.E. Wyatt and then Ernest Kennell). On February 20, 1884, in Carroll County, Arkansas, she became the second wife of Billy Burris. On the 1900 census, she states she was the mother of five children. The only three listed were by her recently deceased husband, Billy Burris: Isabella Burris, George Burris, and Isaac Burris. On March 28, 1904, in Carroll County, Bettie became the wife of R.H. Norwood. By the 1920 census, she is using the surname of Burris which appears to be the name she is buried under. So far, she can't be found in the 1930 census. An Arkansas Death Index on Ancestry does list the death of a Bettie Burris on Aug. 3, 1928 down in Pope Co, AR.
