The alternating Besses in that production were Priscilla Baskerville (who also played Clara at some performances), Henrietta Elizabeth Davis, Naomi Moody, and Daisy Newman. I can't find any evidence that Emily Yancy ever played Bess anywhere, although she would have been good casting if she could have sung it. It might have been a touch beyond what she really could do.
