Dec. 30, 1971 Tampa Hillsborough County Florida, USA
Bessie was adopted as a young child to Charles and Annie Howard of New York City. Her birth mother was Catherine G. Clark Bianchi who I have linked. There is no method to link adopted parents. Her birth father is not yet known but possibly had the surname of Stanton. Supposedly Bessie had a twin brother who was adopted to another family living in California.
