About Bessie May Smith

Bessie Smith Alten's Gravestone can be seen on her husband's profile. Fredrick Carl Althen

Judging by the date of her passing, it appears that she died giving birth.

It is my opinion that her step mother Anna Smith (Moore) was present at this time. Leaving her Anna Elizabeth Smith (Moore) the sole air to Nathaniel E. Smith's small fortune. WAlter G. Ashworth, Great Nephew to Bessie May Smith
