     Annie Bezanson was born in 1857.1 She married Simon George Holley, son of Edward Holley and Phoebe Bezanson, on 3 November 1876 at Halifax, Nova Scotia. The ceremony was performed by Reverend G.M. Grant.2,3 Annie Bezanson became a widow upon the death of her husband Simon George Holley on 16 November 1882.1 Annie Bezanson and Robert Davidson moved to Timmins, Ontario.1 Annie Bezanson married Robert Davidson on 3 September 1884 at New Harbour, Nova Scotia.4,1
     Bezansons from Nova Scotia has Annie Bezanson and Minnie Ann Bezanson as the same person, but I am not convinced that is correct. Minnie Ann Bezanson married James Mitchell on 3 January 1874 and was recorded as 18 years old with parents Stephen and Caroline. Almost three years later, on 3 November 1876, Annie Bezanson married Simon George Holley, her first marriage, 19 years old, and parents Stephen and Fanny. While it is possible the three items that don't match are all mistakes (spinsterhood, age, parents), it seems unlikely. As of April 2014, I have been unable to locate the parents of Minnie Ann Bezanson, if she is indeed not the same person as Annie Bezanson.5
