Married Omer W. DAVIS, 1888; their children: Prudence E, b. 1898 and Lena, 1895.
Bessie and Omer lived in Nebraska, and then Illinois for several years. The marriage did not last: they appear together in the 1910 census, but in the 1920 census, Bessie is living alone, and Omer is remarried and living in Los Angeles.
Bessie worked as a lace dresser as of 1920. In the 1930 and 1940 censuses, she is enumerated in Benton Township, Zion, Lake County, Illinois.
(Some sources suggest that Omer and Bessie also had Grace, b 1894; Ruth, b 1895; and Floyd, b 1899. However, the 1900 census indicates that Bessie bore two children, and that both were living. The other Davises, shown in later censuses, may simply have been neighbors.)
