Important dates:


 There has been some question about the date of this child's birth.  Her  
father, Oscar, in a letter dated July 30, 1935 told his mother that Bessie  had 
the baby "last Friday morning".  The Benson children have always said  that 
their mother lived about 15 days after the birth of her last child.  Two  
Fridays before Oscar's letter was written would have been Friday, July 19th.  
The birth was difficult & the doctors had to turn the baby & bring her feet  
first; she was born dead and Bessie probably got an infection. No anti-biotics
