My former husban is Howard Tessier(age 55 at this writing), he is the only son of Charles and Vera Tessier.Charles was the son of Osa and ???? Tessier who imigrated here from Monterel via Oklahoma.Osa has related a story to me about the family recieveing a land grant from the King in the area which is currently down town Monterel. This branch of the family left Canada because of the quarrel which arose when the family was excommunicated by the church. I'm sure the family would like to know about this website so I am going to forward the information to them.
