Notes for CYRILLE (SILAS) BESSETTE:

In 1864, almost 150 men from the town of Plattsburgh were drafted for service in the Civil War. The following is a transcription of the draft list--this particular list was taken from an article in the Plattsburgh Republican. Even though these men were technically drafted, very few (only 9) were actually forced to join the military. Some paid a commutation fee of $300, some purchased substitutes, others failed the mandatory physical. All in all, the experience of Plattsburgh's draftees was very similar to those from other towns. http://equinox.shaysnet.com/~phaneuf/clinton/plattsburgh_draft.html

There is a Silas Bassette listed as one of the detainees, although if this is Jean and Marie's son is unknown. But I believe that it is.
