When Bessie married Andy Pumphrey on 31 Jul 1926 in Butler County, Missouri, she said that her father's name was Wm. Hightower.("Missouri, County Marriage, Naturalization, and Court Records, 1800-1991," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKZ7-RRNT : 17 October 2017), Andy Pumphrey and Bessie Hightower, 31 Jul 1926; citing Marriage, Butler, Missouri, United States, p. 112, Missouri State Archives, Jefferson City.) From US Census records, it appears that he was John William Hightower, b. 25 January 1880 in Missouri. He is buried in the same cemetery as Bessie.(Find A Grave, database and images (https://www.findagrave.com : accessed 08 January 2018), memorial page for John William Hightower (25 Jan 1880–10 Mar 1958), Find A Grave Memorial no. 41834611, citing Brown Chapel Cemetery, Broseley, Butler County, Missouri, USA ; Maintained by Lin (contributor 46798906) .
