Grandmother Bessie~Wish I Had Known Her!

  My maternal Great Great Grandmother, Bessie Mae (Eargle) Price (1878-1943) was said by some to be a colorful character. 

Bessie Mae (Eargle) Price
                                            One of Bessie's Granddaughters described her personality in a letter written in 1997:

 "Bessie Price had a great sense of humor, she would tell them never take a trip without an umbrella, raincoat and winter coat because you never know what the weather was going to do. Bessie never came for a visit without her umbrella, raincoat and overcoat. No matter how hot it was. I don't remember Grandma Roberts going anywhere without those things. She also took food along. They enjoyed Bessie's visits because she would always make them laugh. Bessie would put cans in her windows at night to make sure she would wake up if someone broke in."

  I would have loved to have known her!

Do you have colorful characters in your tree?
