Alfred Bessette
My name is Jim Silva and my mom grew up in the Binghamton area of New York. She was a bridesmaid in the wedding of Alfred Bessette and Rose Marie Messina. I imagine it was a different Alfred Bessette, but I thought I would check because I have a picture or two of him, including one fron the wedding.

Thank you for your edit. It helped me to fill a gap in my research. Helen's sister, Lorraine, is my mother-in-law.

Van Ness Ransom
My information concerning this son of John Ransom, Jr., and Rhoda Pierce comes from the History of Poultney, VT, p. 332:

"John, the second son of John senior, m. Rhoda Pierce, of Poultney. Both died a number of years since. Their children were: John P, who d. about 1865; Julia, m. Philip Pond; Hiram, m. Ann Mason, of Castleton, and removed to Illinois, where both d.; it is supposed he has children living in that State; Horace, d. at 11 years of age, by the kick of a horse; Mary, m. Stephen Pierce, lives in Pennsylvania, a widow; Stephen, m., and lives in Illinois; Van Ness, d. in Illinois, where he has children living."
[Source: A History of the town of Poultney, Vermont, p. 332]

Van Ness is actually Cornelius P. Van Ness Ransom. He married Azubah Smith in Madison Co., IL:

Illinois Marriages to 1850
Spouse: Ransom, Cornelius P. V.
Spouse: Smith, Azubah
Marriage Date: 7 Mar 1843

And you'll find him in Madison Co. IL in the 1850 census.

RE: Benjamin Bromley 55982317
I reported that Benjamin Bromley was married to Lydia (Harvey) and that they had 14 children. I also reported that Ben was the son of Betheul and Lydia (McCleveland). I show Ben linked to Betheul (84341184. The Betheul record was entered by Robert Pennington but has a different wife (Not Lydia McCleveland). JV

I've transfered Benjamin's memorial to you. It sounds like you have found much more info on him than I have, so please make corrections accordingly. Thank you - Patsy
