     Charles Anthony Bezanson was born on 6 March 1888.3,4,5 He married twice, and a confusing census entry indicates he may have married a third time. It is not completely clear from the evidence I have reviewed which children were born to which wives. He married Catherine Matthews, daughter of Henry Matthews and Mary (?), on 31 January 1911 at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. He was 22.6,1 Charles Anthony Bezanson married Jessie Revels on 14 May 1928 at St. Patrick's Church, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

She cannot be the "Kathrine" listed in the census, unless someone reported her to be alive when she was not. The Marital Status for Charles seems to be "2m", i.e., his second marriage.13

He was 27.1 Ethel Sophia Bezanson and Edith D. Bezanson were sisters. "Ethel S" and "Edith D" are both with their parents in the 1900 census, and "Ethel D" is also with them in 1910. In 1910, however, Ethel has lost 10 years of age and has a new middle initial. I believe that the Ethel in the 1910 census was actually Edith.3,4
