     Rose Delima Benoit was born at Poulamond, near Arichat, Nova Scotia.2 She married Ralph Waldo Emerson Bezanson, son of David Samuel Bezanson and Annie Helena Farrell, on 16 February 1914 at D'Escousse, Nova Scotia. He was 26.1,3 Rose Delima Benoit was buried in 1954 in Holy Cross Cemetery, Sydney, Nova Scotia.2
     From Diane Frances Lewis: My grandmother died before I was born, so everything I know about her is from my mother. She was born in a tiny community near Arichat called Poulamond. She was a Roman Catholic and named after a Saint, Rose of Lima, she had a sister a nun. My grandfather Ralph (it is obvious who he is named after) converted from the Baptist faith to Catholicism. He has a relative a Baptist Minister, who is still alive. Rose worked in the home her whole life and was a wonderful craftspersoon. It was common for Acadian women to hook rugs, do fancy work, make quilts, etc. They were meant for everyday living and not seen as extraordinary. I hung grandma Bezanson's hand made rag rug on my living room wall. She would probably think that was strange and wonder why I don't use it. I love preserving the past and am collecting artifacts and crafts she made. I have her hand made rug hook, etc.4
