Bessie Jane Perry
Birth: 22 Nov 1900 in Van Buren, Newton,  Arkansas
Death: 3 May 1965 in Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio

Bessie married Samuel Dalton Metcalf and had 8 known children. Her mother was Dora West she was listed as unknown since most of the family didn’t know that Richard E. Perry’s second wife Tilde wasn’t her mother. I need Richard E. Perry’s death information. He is believed to be buried in Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio in Hill Grove Cemetery.

Tilde was born the d/o James Robert Davis and Elizabeth Cook Davis. They lived in Sneedville, Hancock, Tennessee where Richard Perry was born. After the death of his first wife (guessing in childbirth) Richard married Tilde and moved to Van Buren township, Newton, Arkansas where Bessie reported being born.

So I perceived that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:22
