I saw an obit in a Newport, VT paper for a woman who was a daughter of William and Delia Corrow Sanville.I had been asked if I knew the location of a grave for a woman's grandmother who was listed as a sister in this obit.I called a local person decended from John Corrow who has listings of all the 18 kids and he reminded me that Besaw is what's left of Bisson which might have been Bissonette.Bisson was one of the first resident families in Westfield Troy VT area. I got involved in none-of-my-business by someone coming to find John Corrow and Phoebe Besaw's resting place near "Corrow Basin" in Westfield.They were buried in the Catholic cemetery in Lowell and she sent me a picture of the stone which I assume you already have.I don't know the Phoebe Gokey who married a Corrow buried not far from John Corrow and phoebe Besaw in Lowell.
A distant family member remembers going to Westfield by sleigh to visit Bisson family for Christmas. Bisson was pronounced French, not Bissn.Said it was also Bison. My great grandmother was Marie Bisson who married Joseph Gaultier-Gauthier-Gokey who has other derivations such as Grochie.My grandmother was Delia Gokey; this family member's mother was a Gokey-there were 13 kids.Marie Bisson's name isn't on the stone - only Joseph Gaultier in St Mary's Cemetery in Newport near the stone altar and cross which was the earliest section of St Mary's(he was also one of the builders of St Mary's; Delia Gokey's husband, (my grandfather whom I never knew) was one of the stonecutters for that thickwalled graystone church).At the foot of the hill on what is now Coventry St, are the people of "West Derby" what is now Glen Rd in Newport.I found a Nelson Corrow buried there and a metal cross with Harold Corrow that I have no info on(yet).West Derby town hall burned with all the records - my father's included.
The Church of Latter Day Saints tracked them all the way to France and Pauline Gokey Doucette gave the family some of the generations information.They weren't the first people to come to "New France"(Champlain came to VT in 1608) but they came soon after. The Church was photographing records here a month ago and said they will probably be listed by the end of the year so you might get more info then.
I have been researching St Mary's Cemetery in Newport and learned that at that time, it was good for business to have an English name and several people with English names reside on land bought by someone with an equivalent French name.I'm also finding family I didn't know I had since Dad never talked about his family altho I did know my aunts and uncles.
