     According to Stanley Burton Bezanson,
O'Vedia Djureen Bezanson
Born November 10, 1895
at Swedish Hospital, Omaha, Nebraska
Died August 26, 1974
79 Years

Although O'Vedia ("Veda") was born and raised in Omaha, after she married Burton C. she had to become naturalized to regain her rights as a citizen of the U.S.A. In the height of World War I it was declared that all citizens married to "foreigners" automatically lost the citizenship. O'Vedia Djureen married a Canadian -- Burton C. -- so had to start her married life in her birthplace -- as an immigrant. Stan B. 4/26/91.1
