     Hannah Clinton was born on 8 July 1793 at Chester, Nova Scotia.1,2 She married Gaspar Bezanson, son of Jean Jacques Jacob Bezanson and Anna Maria Ley, on 29 December 1813 at Chester, Nova Scotia. She was 20. He was 24.3,4,5 Hannah Clinton and Gaspar Bezanson mortgaged property at St. Margaret's Bay in 1820.6 Hannah Clinton and Gaspar Bezanson moved before 1843 to Hammonds Plains.6 Hannah Clinton and Gaspar Bezanson were active at Baptist Church, Hammonds Plains.6 Hannah Clinton died in 1869.1

     From Bezansons from Nova Scotia:
In 1820, Gaspar and wife Hannah mortgaged lands at St. Margaret's Bay (46-151). Then they went to Hammonds Plains, where they were active in the Baptist Church, and they were there in 1843 when the son Elijah joined the church. They lived (probably) on Morris' Road, toward Tomahawk. They moved to the Windsor Road circa 1844. Harris notes: "Went to Horton." Kings Co. Deaths, WB V42: "D. 1869 at Gaspereaux, of consumption, Hannah Bezanson, widow, b. Chester, d/o Patrick and Barbara Clinton. Inf. Hezekiah Bezanson". Census of 1838 (H.P.) shows 5 children under 14 yrs. A son Gaspar & Hannah d. at H.P. 1843, Feb 17, name not given. Harris lists Otis & David as sons of Gaspar. De speculates that both William (who may have been William Otis) and Mary Ann, not accounted for, are ch. of Gaspar & Hannah, and also that David, as well as Elijah, went to N.B. There is a notation by the listing of children: Largely guesswork, much confusion about this family.6
