Birth: Jan. 28, 1893
Death: Jan. 24, 1981

Daughter of Jim and Maggie Green, wife of Basil J. Foley.

Transcription of Foley Cemetery by Henry Ford Cutrell states the following: "Foley Cemetery; on east side of Green Rd. 1 1/2 Miles south of Hwy 70N on small hill, about 150 Ft. back in woods, rock wall around it.

Foley, Basil J. 1881-1940
[Foley], Bessie G. 1893- "

Bellwood Cemetery is approx one mile north of Hwy 70 on Bellwood Road. When the road crosses to the south of Hwy 70, it becomes Ben Green Road. Basil Foley's death certificate gives place of burial as the Murphy cemetery.

Basil Jordan Foley was Bessie Green's first cousin as well as spouse. His parents were Henry Jacob ("Jake") Foley and Jane ("Jennie") Cornelia Green, Jim Green's sister.

The 1920 federal census lists Basil Foley in the household of Ben T. Murphy as "partner, farmer." The adjacent household enumerated on the census, that of Andy Green, includes younger siblings Bessie and Ben.
