George Tessier married Julie Marquis in Leominster, Massachusetts 1908. This record also tells us his birth year (est) 1887, parents names were Israel Tessier and Annie Meanor. His wife was from Leominster and her parents were David Marquis and Alina Tardit.
1930 U.S. census says he was a Baker.
According to the family, George abandoned his Leominster family without divorcing Julia, and started another family perhaps nearer to Boston. According to Lorraine (Tessier) Pavilaitis (a granddaughter), George's son Leo G. Tessier, Sr. once went looking for George. Found, is an article in the local newspaper, (Fitchburg Sentinel) that George Tessier of Lexington was charged with non-support by his wife in Leominster District Count, (Leominster being the city (where Julia (Marquis) Tessier was residing) in April 1938. It also says "as a result of a welfare purge by Capt. Francis W. Farwell and Sergt. Henry Q. St. Cyr." This profile's owner, recalls his grandmother, Dorothy (Hatstat) Tessier speaking of Henry St. Cyr as a family friend. See source 2. HOWEVER, the age of the George Tessier in the article, (47) would call into question agreement with the dob we understand, (1887); and Julia (Marquis) Tessier or the children's names are not given in the article. This article's date would have been about when Julia Marquis' two youngest children were in their late teens, and would have been about the time when an elder son, Leo G. Tessier is suspected of going looking for his father, (George E. Tessier.) More research is needed.
