Here is a possible baptism for daughter, Lillian from the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:

This family appears to have ties to VT. Here is a marriage for a son, Armand:

"Vermont, Vital Records, 1760-1954," Moise Bessette in entry for Armand Arthur Bessette and Lea Alice Santerre, 1933

Here is a baptism for Armand:

This child died in 1992:

Here is a baptism for his father, Moise:

Felix Moise Bessette, b. 27 Dec 1863, bap 17 Nov 1864 Dunham (Ste-Croix), Missisquoi County, Quebec, son of Antoine Bessette & Emilie Langlois of Granby.

That's a lot of info on Rose, but nothing on her husband Joseph Poirier, b. abt 1882 Quebec. He will be a lot harder to find. This might be a death record for him:

Connecticut Death Index, 1949-2001 about Josep A Poirier
Name:        Josep A Poirier        
Death Date:        1 Mar 1955
Death Place:        Preston, New London, Connecticut
Age:        73 Years
Birth Date:        abt 1882
Marital Status:        Married
Spouse:        Rosa
State File #:        05220
Residence :        New London, New London, Connecticut
Gender:        Male
Race:        White

A tree on Ancestry gives a birth date for him - 17 Nov 1881 St-Sebastian, Canada, and a marriage to Rose Bessette - 25 Nov 1907 Taftville, CT. I can't verify any of that info.

If we assume that the above info is correct, then this might be a baptism for him:

Joseph Aldee Poirier, b. 19 Nov, bap 20 Nov 1881 Iberville (St-Sebastien) Quebec, son of Joseph Poirier & Delphine Brault.

There is a WWII draft card that matches pretty closely:

U.S., World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 about Joseph Alfred Aldee Poirier

Birth Place:        Canada

Mailing address: 20 East Main St, Mystic
Race:        White
Age: 61
Occupation: Delite Fabrics Inc, Paweatuck, New London, Conn
Person who will always know your address: William Backanosky, 2 amry St., Jewitt City, Conn

Hope this helps. Annie
