She survived her husband several years, and died in her 81st year, April 3, 1900, in the home of her youngest daughter, Mrs. Regina Fogg, of Hyde Park, Mass. My mother had some of the mental characteristics of her father—his sprightliness, his strong sense, his friendliness, his scorn of meanness. She was like him in his activity in a green old age, and in possession of her faculties. She could ride on horseback when a young woman, and was always a good walker. She never seemed to grow old, and was always a person of dignity and of an attractive presence. ... My mother never wholly recovered from that blow [of losing a son who died at sea]."5

     Obituary, 13 May 1908:
At Marriott's Cove, Lun. Co., Deacon Joseph Bezanson aged 79 years and five months died rather suddenly on the 3rd of May. He was stricken with paralysis and only lived a few days. He was in his usual place in church on the previous Sabbath and it was a surprise to his many friends to hear of his sudden demise.

He was baptized into the fellowship of the Chester church N.S., on the 29th of April, 1855, by the Rev, Stephen DeBlois, D.D. He was 53 years a faithful member of the Chester church and when he died its senior deacon. His father had served in the same office before him. He was also clerk of the church for several years. In whatever capacity he served was always faithful. And exemplary Christian and pre-eminently a man of peace he will be missed in church and community. The large numbers who attend his funeral attested to the esteem in which he was held. The funeral service was conducted by his pastor the Rev. John Miles.

His widow and two children survive him. J.H. of Sydney, C.B., and Mrs, Hennigar, Chester, N.S.8

     Obituary from The Maritime Baptist (Saint John, New Brunswick), 12 April 1916:
Bezanson - There passed to her heavenly home on March 10th, from the residence of her daughter, one of Chester's eldest residents, Mrs. Jessie Bezanson, widow of the late Deacon Joseph Bezanson, at the age of ninety years.

Mrs. Bezanson was born May 30th, 1826 in Fifeshire, Scotland, being the daughter of Henry Wilson and Isabel Strachan. In 1841 her parents, with their seven children, came to Nova Scotia, landing at Pictou, from which they sailed around Cape Breton to Halifax. Eight years later she married Joseph Bezanson and they made their home at Marryott's Cove, Lunenburg County. Her people were Presbyterian and when a girl she became a member of the Presbyterian church. After marrying on April 27, 1861, she was immersed by Rev. J. Skinner, and became a member of the Baptist church of Chester, N.S. She remained until her death a firm believer in Christ and a zealous member of the Chester church, supporting it both with her attendance and money until failing health kept her home. Even then she continued her financial support.

She was the last of her family to depart this life. She leaves to mourn two daughters.

The funeral services were held on March 12th, conducted by Rev. R.F. Allen, burial taking place in the Baptist cemetery, Chester, N.S.1

I have not been able to locate where his children were at that time.6 Alfred Bezanson died on 15 February 1911 at Farmington, Nova Scotia, at age 78.7,2 The cause of death was cancer, old age.8 He was buried in Barss Corner Baptist Cemetery, Barss Corner, Nova Scotia.9

     Obituary:
The death of William O. Bezanson occurred October 7th, at Western Kings Memorial Hospital, Berwick. He was 83 years of age and was born at Farmington, Lunenburg County, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Bezanson. As a young man, he followed the sea and later was employed in the lumber industry with Chappell Brothers. When his son, Arthur Bezanson, owner and proprietor of the Berwick Bakery, first started the bakery in Berwick about twenty years ago, he and Mrs. Bezanson moved to Berwick to reside. His wife, the former Miss Annie Davis, of LaHave, predeceased him in 1929.

The deceased had been quite active until two weekss ago and had attended church in the morning. That evening he was stricken with apoplexy at the home of his son, Arthur, where he resided. He was taken to Western Kings Memorial Hospital, where his son, Dr. C.S. Bezanson, of Aylesford, attended him. He was a faithful Christian and regular church attendant, being a member of the Baptist Church at Barss Corner.

Surviving are two sons, Arthur of Berwick, and Dr. C.S. Bezanson, Aylesford, and one daughter, Mrs. Clarence Veno of Halifax. Another son, Edwin, proprietor of the Quality Bakery, Yarmouth, predeceased him three years ago. There are sixteen grandchildren and eight grest-grandchildren. Two sisters also survive, Mrs. E. W. Maynard of Charlton, Mass., and Mrs. Stephen Haines, Shelburne, Nova Scotia.

On Saturday afternoon, October 9, Rev. S.R. Horton, pastor, officiated at the funeral service held in the Baptist Church here and interment was made in the local cemetery.7

Lorenda Bezanson

F, #938, b. 25 August 1861
FatherAlfred Bezanson b. 19 Aug 1832, d. 15 Feb 1911
MotherBessie Webber b. 1837, d. 4 Dec 1875
Relationship2nd great-granddaughter of Jean George Bezanson
     Lorenda Bezanson was born on 25 August 1861.1
     From Bezansons from Nova Scotia
Possibly another Lorenda born ca. 1866 (Ref: age in census 1871 Census) which would mean that Lorenda b. in 1861 must have died prior to 1865-66
Another possibility is that one birth record was incorrect, and Lorenda Bezanson and Lorenda J. Bezanson are the same person.1
