Bessie/Elizabeth/Betsy Boyd, SE Pa

I am searching for the parents of Bessie Boyd. She married William Campbell Todd (b. about 1870) probably in Beaver County, PA. They both married late in life. They lived in Hookstown, Beaver County, PA where their only child was born, Arthur Boyd Todd (b. March 12, 1917 - d. Feb. 1970). I have been told that she may have been from WV or had relative in WV because when both Bessie and William died early in Arthur's childhood, Arthur lived with relatives in WV (Chester, WV maybe).

I found this in a 1910 census record:
Could this be Bessie? I typed it exactly as it appeared on

Pennsylvania 1910 Miracode index Census
State: Penn
County: Beaver
Enumeration District: 28
Name: Belle Boyd
Relation: Husband
Color: W
Age: 58
Birthplace: Penn
Visit: 0002
Relatives: Daughter Bessie 28, Penn

Any leads would be appreciated. I would like to find where Bessie and William are buried also.
