Bessie Edna Samuels Notes:  Bess was born in Napa County, California, in the Blue Ridge mountain area where her parents had a cattle ranch.  She attended the old Monticello School.  She lived at the ranch until her parents decided to move in 1905 their two sons and four daughters to 21 North Street in the town of Napa.  Bess then attended Napa public schools and also went to a Napa secretarial school.  The photograph at the right was taken during these years.
