Second Family

JACQUES-II BÉZENERT ET ANGÉLIQUE POIRIER

Jacques Bézenert was the son of Jean Bazanaire and of Marie-Anne Gruzelin. He was born in Vaudreuil on July 9,1764 but his act of baptism is in Ste-Anne de Bellevue. Since he was the only boy in the family, il inherited the family's land in Petite-Côte where he settled down. His marriage with ANGÉLIQUE POIRIER, daughter of Michel Poirier and Marie-Louise Génus, took place in Vaudreuil on January 19, 1792. Jacques Besner died December 12,1827 at the age of 63. He was buried under the church, on the right side denoting a certain standing in the community because this honour was reserved for the noble and those of the bourgeois class, and ordinary people were buried outside of the enclosure of the cemetery, one after the other. Angélique Poirier was buried also under the church on April 22, 1844 at the age of 79. This union produced one girl and ten boys but only 6 of them had descendants.
