Bess Scroggins was born in Leonard, Texas. She was the 2nd child and first daughter of James and Iva Scroggins.

Bess married several times. In the 1920s, life was difficult for everyone in South Dakota because jobs were scarce and money was tight. This may have contributed to her many life changes.

Bess married Ed Masters. She divorced him before 1925. On August 5, 1926 she married William Hennerman in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. This marriage did not last. On July 2, 1929 she married Peter Sather in Brown, South Dakota. Later in life she married a man named Jackson.
