Looking for POTTS of Indiana

I am specifically looking for the parents of Bessie Violet Potts. She was born, I think, on 3/13/1899. She had 2 siblings; Jennie or Ginnie, and Howard or Phillip.

Bessie was born in Anderson, Madison County, Indiana. She married Charles Albert Horton Metcalfe on July 23, 1919. They had 6 children, one of which is my mother.

Bessie and Charles divorced and she went on to marry Corbett Eckel. In August of 1954, Bessie passed away and is buried at Hopeful Cemetery in Florence, Ky.

I have Bessie's father as John Potts, but I'm not sure about her mother, whose name could have been Florence, Eva, or Evelyn.
