My Great Aunt. Daughter of Okey Ragsdale & Alice Calista Tousley; granddaughter of James Madison & Susannah (Wiley) Ragsdale and Joseph C. & Harriet Bender (Gerst) Tousley.

6th great-granddaughter of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale.

Married 1) Bradford Newell, 1929, they divorced. One child.

Married 2) Leonard William Huyser, at Galloway Ranch, Ouray, Ouray Co., CO.

Aunt Bessie was a gem and wrote of her growing up years with all the traveling the family did. It is a treasure of information of the life and times of the Ragsdale's.

She lived 84 years, 1 month, 16 days before the Lord called and she answered.

Many thanks to granddaughter, Laura Lenée, for burial information.
