My great grandmother,Adeleide Gevery,married Olivier Bessette on September 16, 1851 in St. Hilaire, Quebec, Canada, where she was born on May 11, 1830. He was born in St. Hilaire on April 5, 1831, the son of Pierre Adolphe Bessette and Francoise Menard. Adeleide's parents were Pierre Gevery and Clementine (Authier). Olivier and Adeleide had 9 children of which 3 were born in Agawam, Mass. Some time around the start of the American Civil War Olivier moved his family to Massachusetts, in the Springfield, West Springfield, Agawam area where Delia, Delina and Antoine (my grandfather) were born . He moved the family back to Canada when Antoine was a child and it was there that all of his children were married, several them in the township of Saint Valerien (about 25 miles east of Montreal). Both Olivier and Adeleide spent their remaining days in Saint Valerien and were buried there.
