The only thing I can comment about is Bessie’s name. My grandmother has a sister, Beyla, who died at birth. When my grandmother came along, they named her Pesia Beyla. The superstition was that by putting another name in front of the dead child’s name, the Devil wouldn’t find her. It worked. My grandmother lived to be 98.
