  • Notes 
    • My Grandfather was James Henry Bess b.1898 McMinnville, TN; his father was John T Bess b.1870 m. Virginia Hill b.1880 from Warren Co. (I don't know where John T. Bess was born, but just found out his mother was Sarah Bess. She was not married when she gave birth to John T. Bess so it's a little strange to follow this link now) Anyway, Sarah Bess's father was Eli Bess b.1813 in SC- wife was Lilar Kilian b.1816.
      Does this match with anything you have? I have lots of information on the descendents of John T. Bess but not the ancestors.
