Ed and Bet Rawley are Bess and George's uncle and aunt. They used to own a dress store "Bet's Best Bets", but sold it to buy Shadow Ranch in Arizona. Jane Nash used to work at "Bet's Best Bets" but Bet fired her.
Nancy, Bess and George vacationed there in 2004, but before that, they were being haunted by a "phantom horse" and a rattlesnake even bit Ed! Ed and Bet are at the hospital during The Secret of Shadow Ranch.
