Birth: Apr. 13, 1885
Lake County
Michigan, USA
Death: 1917

Effie Samis was born in Chase, Lake Co. Michigan April 13, 1885 to Norman W. Samis and Martha Allis Hissong. She married Benjamin Walter Bissell in Reed City, Osceola Co. Michigan August 14, 1907. She was the mother of Boyd D., Juanita Jean, Howard Norman, and Everett Lewis Bissell.


A brief article reads, Death Calls Mother Coroner Poole said his first information regarding the Bissell case arose when he was called on to perform an autopsy on Mrs. Bissell who gave birth to a baby on Friday of last week and afterwards developed peritonitis. There was no one to sign the death certificate and the autopsy was necessary. Dr. Alfred Harold, Physican, attended Mrs. Bissell until the family determined to use medicine.
