Looking at Maria's siblings - her brother Thomas married an Eliza Hunt - I wonder if that was your Bessie?

I can't see any grandchildren Bessie's in the census but I haven't really tracked down the siblings

Charles Mills and Rose Hannah Harding had 10 children
David 1853-1927
Anne 1855-1859
Thomas 1856 -
William 1859
Hannah 1861
William Daniel 1863
James 1865
Maria 1866 - 1919
Mary Anne 1868
Elizabeth Ellen 1871 - 1896

Do you have the original poem?

How really lovely-!
What a lovely thing to have. It has me all teary-eyed.
Congratulations on a wonderful memento.
 Expect some emotion from the person for whom it is intended.
Who could remain dry- eyed!

Yep -  me too Viktoria 😪

Thank you for that information Iolaus. I will try and find out more information from family members. I donít have the original poem only a copy which I first saw about 30years ago when my mother was sorting through some papers
