It is not clear who Melanie's father is. Her birth record identifies Jeanne Dorau as her mother, but only identifies John Joseph Bareste as Jeanne's husband.

The 1881 census shows her living with her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Bissett. The 1891 census shows her living with another daughter, Mrs. Adele Joyce. She is shown as living with a grand-daughter, Mrs. Ronald Poirier, in Nova Scotia at the time of her death in 1918.†An extended death notice, written and printed up by another of her grand-daughters , Mrs. Emma Bissett, is in the files at Saint Hyacinth's Church in D'Escousse.

Event Note -

The conclusion that the Ann Bisset who married John Cogill was the child of John George Bisset is tentative. Her association with the Cole Harbour Bissetts is based on the fact that there were a John Cogill and wife Ann living in Cole Harbour in the 1820s and 1830s near the Bissetts, whereas there are no other known Bissett families in Nova Scotia at that that time. Assuming that association, her 1805 marriage virtually assures that she is the child of John George Bisset, since all of his brothers were too young and his father's children are all accounted for.

There are two entries for James Bissett. This is likely the one who is a farmer who has (in addition to himself) one female <6 yrs, one male <14 yrs, one female <14 yrs, one male > 15 yrs, and two females > 14 yrs in his household.

John George Bisset was said by Pelletier to have an additional son named Samuel.

It is faintly possible that this John Geoge Bissett and his family lived for a few years in Massachusetts sometime in this period. This possibility is raised by the fact that the marriage record of his son, George Edward Bissett, claims that he was born in Massachusetts. In addition, one should note that no baptism record has been found in Nova Scotia for George Edward Bissett, although baptism records have been found there for all of his siblings

Farmer

Property - [date: 15 JUN 1811] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
A grant confirmed the 148+ acres occupied by George Bissett and which was bounded by the original Bissett - Harper grant, Tobias Miller's grant, and Beamish (Bissett) Lake. In addition, 1631 adjoining acres in equal shares were granted to George Bissett, Samuel Bissett, James Bissett, John Hawthorne, Charles Bissett, and seven others.

Property - [date: 07 JUL 1816] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
A division of the Cole Harbour land holdings of Jean George Bissett was made among his heirs: "whereas the late George Bisset of Cole Harbour having at his death let a lot of undivided land among his heirs and being desirous to put an end to all disputes concerning the sharing thereof have unanimously and mutually agreed to divide said land in the following manner . . .". (James) Frederick received one share, (John) George two shares, Louisa Harris one share. Benjamin and Samuel jointly received the remainder of the land as their shares, being required to grant an easement to each of Frederick and George to be able to get their teams to the water's edge. The deed was witnessed by Thomas Conrod.
It should be noted that neither Joseph Frederick nor George Frederick received any share, although both were certainly living.

Property - [date: 01 JUL 1846] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
John George ceded a piece of disputed land to Samuel in exchange for Samuel's creation of a permanent easement for access by John George's son, Charles, in the form of a road that is to be maintained by Samuel and open to all citizens.

Event Event-Note - [date: 20 OCT 1808] [place: Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He was belatedly appointed Administrator of his father's estate long after his father's death. This appointment was one week after he apparently attempted to file the probate documents, possibly based on an early probate action whose initiation had been published in 1797, but not completed. The Administrator appointment order called for a full estate inventory by 20 Jan 1809 and final disposition of assets by 20 April 1810. The asset portion of the inventory papers, signed by Joseph Giles et al., are dated 8 January 1809. The debit portion, which was sworn before John Gammon, appears to be the same as the 15 Oct 1808 filing. It should be noted that the debit accounting for the estate begins in Oct 1788 and includes miscellaneous entries from 1794 through 1796 for payments made by George, James Frederick, and Samuel Bissett.

In his "Louisa's World", which is an extract from an 1814 diary of a woman living in Dartmouth, Dale McClare identifies a Mrs. David Frost as the former Miss Sarah Harper, daughter of George Harper and Catharine Bissett. "Religious Marriages in Halifax" shows that the Frosts were married on 15 Jan 1811 at Saint Paul's and that Sarah had not been previously married. This date essentially narrows the possibilities from among the known Bissetts of her mother's identity to the eldest child of Jean George Bisset, Anna Catharine born in 1756, and Louisa Catharine born in 1766. But Louisa Catharine is identified in the 1816 family estate settlement as Mrs. Harris.

(1907 & 1911), with large majorities. He was first a leading member of the Assembly. He spoke frequently, but his speeches were brief, pointed and clothed in choice language. He had many oratorical gifts, and as a speaker, either in or out of the Assembly, he had few equals, and no superiors. Many of his speeches were models of taste and elegance. His address on the motion to extend the thanks of the House of Assembly to Sir Frederick Fraser for his great work on behalf of the blind, during providence, and in the language of the correspondent who described the scene, 'Dr. Bissett's speech on the occassion will live long after those who heard him are forgotten'."†Completed his prelimiary education a Pictou Academy and took his medical course at McGill University, Montreal.

1838 Census shows him as a 'farmer' with a wife and two female children under the age of 6.

Event School Reg - [date: 30 APR 1846] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

The registration records appear to show three children in attendance: Mary, age 9; Agnes age 7; and Sarah, age 5. Mary and Sarah are almost certainly children of Edward and Agnes. The entry for young Agnes lies between them, implying that she too is their child. This hypothesis is strengthened by the reference to Sarah as the "third daughter" in Sarah's marriage notice. No other record, other than a similar Oct 1846 pupil record, is known for this Agnes.

Bissett, Elizabeth (~1790 - ) - female
b. ABT 1790

father: Bisset, John George (b1762 - 1847)
mother: Boutelier, Judith (*1761 - )
this Elizabeth Bissett is placed as the daughter of these parents primarily because of the lack of a better alternative. The reference to her as "daughter of a wealthy merchant of Halifax" almost surely identifies her as one of the Nova Scotia Bissetts. Yet, there is no other record on such an Elizabeth and the date of her marriage narrows her possible parents to a few - all of whom are highly unlikely except for this pair, who themselves are somewhat speculative. Her marriage date also makes it attractive to assume that she was a sibling of the James Bisset married in 1814, especially since there are no other Bissett marriages in this period.

this is a rough guess based only on her marriage date and is unsupported by specific documentation

From her appearance as a beneficiary of Thomas Bissett, she was a child of John Joseph Bissett, had married someone named Coombs, and was alive in 1908. There is a Eunice in the family's immigration list who was shown as 13 in 1865. There is an entry in the 1880 census that may be read as "Eunice", but her age there is given as 16. I have entered a wild guess of 1853 as her birth year.

There is no documented reason why this second marriage took place between these same individuals. It suggests, however, that George Frederick Bissett's English wife may have been left behind in England when he returned to Nova Scotia after leaving the Navy. Sometime after the earlier marriage to Mary Ann Maddox, it may have been discovered that his first wife was still alive - thus requiring a second marriage after he could prove her death. Supporting this hypothesis is the fact that George Frederick is listed as a "widower" in this marriage record.

Bissett, John J (1834 - ) - male
b. 1834 in United States

mother: Parker, Catherine (1806 - )
It seems likely that this John J. Bissett may be a son of the William Bissett who was living in Illinois in 1841, but later appears to have moved back to Nova Scotia. The fact that the 1881 Canadian census identifies his mother's name as Catherine strengthens the case. The ages are not quite correct, but within the bounds of usual census error. Furthermore, the Catherine Bissett in the 1870 Halifax City Directory is shown as the widow of William Bissett.

Census - [date: 30 MAR 1861] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

This is likely the household shown as headed by John Bissett and having a total of one m (40-50), one f (40-50), two f (10-15), one m (10-15), and one f (5 -10). The record also indicates that one m (3-4) died in the past year.

Census - [date: 1880] [place: Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts]

Although this census entry has some problems, the identification with this family is firm. Strongly supporting the identification is the fact that his children, Jennie and (Freeman) Joseph, have been identified in the same census as living in Boston in the next household. The entry, however, shows a John Bissett, age 68; his wife Jane, age 54; and daughter Eunice, age 16; all born in Nova Scotia. John and Jane's ages are wrong by at least five years, in opposite directions. This may be due at least partially to an error in the transcription from the original - but an error of this magnitude cannot be ruled out in a census record. The name of the daughter is not clear. It may be Eunice, but if so the age given, 16, doesn't correspond to the Eunice on the immigration list.

Martha is almost certainly the nine year old daughter claimed by George Frederick Bissett in his 1817 petition for a land grant. Martha's husband (and apparent first cousin), George Edward Bissett, states in his later application to be appointed executor of George Frederick's estate that Martha was GF's only daughter and implies that there are no other children living.

Special bequests for: Edwin (500£) on condition of sober behaviour at descretion of executor; Elizabeth J. Matheson, daughter of Maria Sophia (wife of Donald Matheson) (200£), conditioned on her discrete conduct, remaining Protestant, and not marrying a non-Protestant; and various Protestant charities (50£ to 100£ each).

Birth Note

The year is estimated from her father's 1817 land petition and is consistent with the age given in her Presbyterian Witness death notice. In the biography of George Edward Bissett, Allison identifies Martha M. Bissett as a "native of England, born about 1800; when young she came to Nova Scotia . . ."

Her death record indicates that she had lived in Halifax for the 12 preceding years, which seems consistent with other information. This is in contrast to the claim in her husband's death record that he had lived in Halifax for 45 years, which is clearly contradicted by considerable evidence that they were living in River Bourgeois up to at least 1921

Melinda Azelina Bissett bought the River Bourgeois property of her father's estate for £2,000 and pledged her entire interest in his estate as a mortgage.

Event Note - [date: JAN 1874] [place: Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

On 26 Mar 1868, Melinda Azelina Bissett agreed to consign her entire interest in her father's estate to a Mr. West as security for a $6,000 loan. This conflicted with an earlier assignment of her interest in her father's estate as a mortgage on purchase of the River Bourgeois property from that estate. Upon the default of the $6,000 loan, West sued and was awarded the $6,000, plus interest and court costs.

There are several interesting and confusing aspects to his will. Note that "Pheaby" and "Caroline" appear to be listed in the will as two distinct daughters - although I have only a "Phebe Caroline" in my file. Perhaps the comma in the will between Pheaby and Caroline is a typo in the original will or perhaps it is I who have mistakenly condensed two of them into one. Assuming that the daughters are listed in the will in birth order, however, there isn't much room between births in that period to squeeze in both a Phebe and a Caroline.†It is natural to assume that any of Samuel's children not mentioned in the will have already died. I have a death record on daughter Sophia of 21 Jul 1851, but that still leaves Samuel Jr., Mark, and Mary Matheson as not explicitly accounted for.†Maddeningly, the will is dated "Nov. 6th" - but without a year. A year "1857" has been written above that date - but in a different hand. This year seems to be contradicted by the fact that the will is shown to have been "Proved" (on the oath of John McNab, one of the witnesses) on 1 July 1854 - an event which had to have occurred after the will was written. Since the will does not mention Samuel's wife, it most surely was written some time after Rachel's death on 31 Jan 1850. This would put Samuel's death sometime just prior to 1 July 1854.

Occupation - [date: 1829]

Shows household with 1 m (>50), 2 m (30-40), 2 f (20-30), 1 f (1-20), 1 m (10-20)

Will - [date: 06 NOV 1853] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

The year is somewhat speculative since the will is dated only by the month and day, with the year being omitted. The will provides that all his real estate passes to his sons, Joseph and William, on the condition that they 1) maintain and support daughters Catherine, Pheaby, Caroline, and Francis until they marry; 2) pay to son Stephen five pounds one year after Samuel's death and again two years after the death; 3) pay to son Josiah ten pounds two years after Samuel's death; 4) pay to sons Martin and Henry Mathew five pounds two years after Samuel's death; 5) If either Joseph and/or William should pre-decease Samuel, Stephen will get their share(s) - subject to the same conditions

The birth year in the baptism record appears to be "1830", but I believe that this is a mis-reading of an older-style and poorly written "1836". The most convincing evidence of this is that his bother, Joseph Michael, was baptised in 1833 at age one. It would be most unusual if Thomas Walter, who would have been three years old in 1833 were he born in 1830, had not been baptised at the same time.
The 1830 date, however, Is consistent with his entry in the 1871 census. On the other hand, 1836 does correspond to his father's entry in the 1838 census. This 1836 date is also consistent with his death record and his record as a school pupil and avoids the problem of his been born so far in advance of his parents' wedding.

The record also shows a Catherine Bissett, age 54, whom I have taken to be a sister of William and Frances, age 48, who is very likely another sister. Also shown in the transcription is a John V. Bissett (which might be a transcription error. He is likely unrelated, being identified as an Anglican born in the Channel Islands - whereas the others are Methodists born in Nova Scotia

Bissett, William (1820 - ) - male
b. 1820

father: Bissett, John Charles (b1796 - 1821)
It is clear from the will of John George Bisset that this William was his grandson who was at the time living with him. It is not clear, however, which of the children of John George Bissett was the parent of William.
One possibility is that he was Charles Brookfield Bissett, who paid the tuition for William's last two terms at school. But it makes little sense that Charles Brookfield would have had just one of his children raised by John George Bisset. In addition, if William's birth year has been estimated anywhere near correctly, there is no room for a separate birth for him among Charles Brookfield's children.
Another possibily is Alexander, but he was alive at the time of John George Bisset's will and no mention is made of any connection to William.
George Edward had died by that time, but it is known that he married in Louisiana and only had two daughters. It is possible that William is his child, possibly illegitimate, who was born before he left for Louisiana in the early 1820s.†The other children (both male and female) were all too young to be William's parent. This leaves John Charles Bissett, who died soon after the estimated date of William's birth. There is no record, however, of John Charles as ever having married.
On balance, I have decided that this John Charles is the more likely choice.

There is some confusion regarding whether the Massachusetts, Illinois, and Missouri appearances are all for the same William Henry Bissett. The 1870 Massachusetts one and the 1880 Illinois one share a son born at the same time named George born in Nova Scotia, although they appear in the censuses with different middle initials. The wives in these censuses, however, have different names and significantly different birth years. THe 1880 Illinois one does seem firmly linked to the later Missouri one due to the mention in the History of Northwest Missouri mentions his move from the Kewanee, Illinois, area in 1883.

Leonore is recorded as buried at St. Paul's on 1/3/1753 and Claudine on 3/13/1753. The burial records also shown a second burial on 3/13/1753 - a 'Lesmore Bizet'. I tend to believe that this is a mis-transcription of 'Leonore' and reflects that she was reburied with her sister. There is no record of any family member with a similar name or of any other family member accompanying them on the Betty.

Others have stated that he had seven additional sons: Alexander Samuel, Edward, George, Henry, Nathaniel, Stephan, and Charles. This would seem to be highly unlikely. There is an 1789 document from Saint John's Church in Lunenberg, giving the Bissett baptisms performed there and none of the above appear on this list. All of the known children born prior to 1772 do appear on this list. In addition, the known children already total ten in 1781 and twelve in 1786, in agreement with the numbers given in the land grant petitions.†There was an Alexander Bissett noted in the Carleton Papers as the Master of the ship 'Thomas' in New York City on 1 May 1783, just before the sailing of the 'Spring Fleet' to Nova Scotia with the Loyalist refugees. If this Alexander were a child of Jean George, he almost certainly would have appeared in the Lunenberg baptism list.

He arrived on the "Betty" with parents, but is shown in his own listing as a single male, 17 years old. He actually was 14 1/2, but probably mis-represented his age to gain a personal entitlement to a promised homestead grant.

Census - [date: 01 JAN 1770] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He is identified as "George Bizet, Junior". There is one adult male, one adult female, three boys and three girls. All are identified as Protestant. The adults are "German and Other Foreigners" and children American. The household possessed two oxen, one cow, one young meat cattle, and one swine. In the past year it had produced ten bushels of wheat, four of pease, ten of barley, twenty of oats, and 1/4 hundreds of flax. It was also noted that one male had been born in the past year and that no-one had died.

Event Event-Note - [date: 1785] [place: Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

A civil jury was summoned to hear a libel suit for £100 brought by John George against Richard and Chrissy Munday, who were said on both 17 Dec 1784 and 25 January 1785 to have publically accused him of being a felon for having stolen wood from them. The disposition of the case is not known.

Event Event-Note - [date: 10 MAY 1786] [place: Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He brought suit for £20 against his son-in-law, Isaac Martin, for failure to repay a promissory note. He was awarded £13 s15 plus costs of £1 s14 d6 on the second Tuesday of July 1786. A warrent was issued on 25 July 1786 for the seizure of the assets of Isaac Martin on his failure to pay.

Event Event-Note - [date: 09 DEC 1771] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

In a 1773 letter to George Biset, DesBarres cites the agreement on rents made between them on 9 Dec 1771. (This agreement was apparently signed before their move to Tatamagouch as two of his daughters appear as godmothers in the Lunenburg records up to April 1772). In his response, DesBarres refers to a request from Bisit for additional land "in behalf of James Biset" and three others. If the earlier son James had died, this would correspond to his sons living at the time: James Frederick, Joseph Frederick, George Frederick, and John George. DesBarres granted Bisit 180 acres "in the neighborhood of the Chappel".

Event Event-Note - [date: DEC 1753] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

Event Event-Note - [date: 1758] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He is recorded as a Private in the local "Indian Patrol"

Name Note

Name is shown on Brevilliers birth register as 'Bizes'.

Death Note

The usual date given for his death is 23 Nov 1797, when an initial Notice of Probate was published. This, however, appears to have been filed many years after his death. A new probate action restarted on 20 Oct 1808 when an Administrator was appointed. The inventory of payments from the estate filed in this new action, begins with payments made in October 1788 - implying that this was his date of death or soon thereafter.

Event Note -

There are a set of letters in the Dartmouth Museum from her to her in-laws from just after her husband death.†Much of the information regarding her and her family come from these letters. She mentions that she has a childless wealthy brother in London and another, married and with a large family, working at a 'lucrative situation' in the Customs House in Dublin. She also mentions that she has never seen any of her in-laws.†She appears from her letters to have been well educated. In support of this is her statement that she 'had accepted an engagement with a Planter's family . . . to prepare two little boys for college.'†Her last known letter was written to her sister-in-law, Agnes, on 19 October 1833. In it, she politely turns down an offer to come to live with them in Cole Harbour. Even though her circumstances sound dire, she says that she can not go 'without the means of defraying my expenses'.†The 'History of Edwards County' (Illinois), where her daughter, Georgina, ultimately settled, states that Mary Catherine moved to Nacogdoches, Texas, where she received a land grant from the Republic of Texas for 640 acres on 3 August 1839.

Event Note -

EVERETT WILLIAM BROWN Everett William Brown Sr was born and spent his early years in the City of Worcester. He attended North High School. He was a member of the First Universalist Church. Upon leaving school he went to work for the Sherman Envelope Company, which at the time was located on Prescott Street in Worcester, as an envelope cutter. He enlisted in the Massachusetts National Guard in May, 1917 in response to a call for volunteers when the United States entered World War I. The Massachusetts National Guard was designated the 26th, or 'Yankee', Division of the United States Army. He was assigned to Battery E of the 102nd Field Artillery which was made up of men primarily from the Worcester area. After a period of training at Boxford, Massachusetts, the YD was sent to France. In France the 102nd underwent further training as artillerymen. Battery E went into the front lines in early February 1918 at Mont des Tombes, just north of Soissons. From that date until the Armistice on November 11, 1918 the YD saw action at various points on the front and were under fire,including gas attack, for a considerable portion of that time. Everett was promoted to corporal and also received a citation for gallantry under fire. After the cessation of hostilities on November 11 it was about five months before the YD arrived in Boston. Everett kept a daily diary of his time in France and this diary has been transcribed to book form by his son Robert and daughter-in-law, Ainslee. Everett returned to the Sherman Envelope Company where he was employed until the company moved to Albany, New York (1939?). At that time he went work for the New England Envelope Company, located on Eden Street in Worcester. The New England Envelope Company later moved to the corner of Park Avenue and Chandler Street. Everett remained with New England Envelope until his death. Everett was the victim of chronic asthma, which came upon him in 1942(?) at the age of 46. This was the only major medical problem in his life. Asthma was the underlying cause of his death. Everett was active in community affairs and for many years was a call member of the Shrewsbury Fire Department. He held the title of Captain. He and Lillian were for many years active members of the Worcester Pistol and Rifle Club and were excellent marksmen. Everett was secretary of the club for a number of years. Other organizations: American Legion, Veterans of Foriegn Wars.
