Bessie was born on 14 Sep 1895 in Pottawatomie County, KS. On 28 Sep 1915 in Onaga, KS she married Percy William Mack. [For those descendants of 1.1 Ralph Clark who married Cora Mack, Cora and Percy were cousins. Cora's dad, Gara Baldic Mack, was a younger brother to Percy's dad, William F. Mack] Together Bessie and Percy had six children.
Bessie (Clark) and Percy Mack
Because of our relationship with the Mack's, I have more stories on Percy than I do on Bessie. Percy and Bessie certainly had their share of difficult times. At the age of 21, Percy was shot in the groin by his brother-in-law, Ben White (a full-blooded Pawnee Indian with a bad temper) and he carried the bullet throughout his life. He left the Mack farm in the 20's and bought a leather shoe repair and harness shop in Centralia, KS. But the depression took its toll and the shop closed, so Percy turned to hauling freight to and from the train depot for local stores. Finally, in 1933, Percy and Bessie moved back out to the country and Percy worked on the farm of Bessie's uncle, James Milligan Clark. Just as things were looking up for the Macks, Percy's team of plow horses ran away with him and he broke his ankle. From this break, he nearly died from blood poisoning, which would recur many times throughout his life. Basically, his ankle never really healed properly leaving him crippled.
Moving to Harper, KS, Percy ran a successful repair shop when Bessie had to undergo gall bladder surgery. She never recovered and died at the age of 48 on 17 Nov 1943. Percy passed away at the age of 72 on 26 Jan 1968.
