Re: Antoine Bessette & Marguerite Melancon
Hi. I have additional information on this line, if you would like to exchange. I am interested in learning more about Antoine & Marguerite, and Antoine & Reine; I can help you further back from there.
Briefly, according to my research notes, Antoine (1818) was one of at least 9 children born to Antoine (1786) Besset & Marie Reine Qurion (I have come across several variations of Reine's surname). They were: Jacques, Antoine, Honore, Honore (aka Henri), Marie, Rose, Edouard, Abraham, and Alfred.
The parents of Antoine (1786) were Antoine Besset (1760) & Marie Charlotte Larocque.
I have more detailed data if you would like to contact me privately. I look forward to hearing from you - Jeri
