Birth: Dec. 29, 1892
Princeton
Caldwell County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Oct. 26, 1965

Child of William Wesley and Louella Dunbar.

Bertha survived a TB outbreak of her siblings between 1910 and 1917. Also Bertha's twin brother died at child birth. Her brother Sam and two sisters Ottie Dell and Ellie Mae were only teenagers when they died from TB. It must have been a very hard time for her as a young woman..Her mother also died when Bertha was 10 years old.

1930 census reveals Bertha living with her husband Marion and their three children: Marion-6 male, Audvary Tosh-5 yrs, Female and Marjory Tosh 3 yrs, Female.

Bertha did not work and her husband was a carpenter. They were originally from Caldwell County, KY and moved to Los Angeles after their second daughter was born. They had a total of five children.
