After going through some of my mother's (Mary Bessanson Wreford) belongings, after her death, I came across several correspondences with her relative ( cousin, Phoebe) from Wisconsin. Below is a list of the ancestry as written on that correspondence (hopefully the information will remain in columns when its posted). Her mother's maiden name was Clara Beaupre, daughter of Joseph and Sarah Beaupre. She raised her family (Bessansons) in Detroit, MI. Any feedback to this posting would be greatly appreciated. After looking at several postings, it appears that a key link may be her father, Joseph Beaupre, and there may be some question as to whether he was married several times.
