    Note she gives her parents' names as Wm. Vann and Jessie Glover, and this is the same mother named in records of sister May Stured-McPhail.

    1912 - Bessie crosses to Detroit Michigan under name Bessie Garrett b. 1889 Waterford, Ontario, but gives marital status as single.

    Next of kin: brother David Vann of St. Thomas, sister Mrs. Charles Swartz of St. Thomas, Mrs. Frank McPhail of Union, and Mrs. Catherine Gilsdorf of Detroit. Several McPhail nephews were pallbearers, and it appears their mother's maiden name was "Stured".

    Bessie's death record in Michigan, states her parents' names as William Vann and Jessie "Steward", but Bessie's date of birth falls within William Vann's marriage to Jane Hewitt. Another mystery: who is sister Mrs. Charles Swartz?
