QUERY: Bessie Worthington

February 24, 2012


I wonder whether you have any information about Bessie Worthington, daughter of Henry Fraser Worthington.

She married James O’Hara Murray in 1894. James worked for Henry Rossiter Worthington as a mechanical engineer based in Europe – mostly Berlin. James married again in 1898 and is described as a widower on the marriage certificate so it sees Bessie not have a long life.

Any info very gratefully received!
