Bible of Eva Dechane, Patten Maine

Bible presented to Eva Dechane by Robert Beattie in 1958.  Eva Gertrude (Grant) Dechane, her husband Louis Peter Dechane and their children lived at Patten, Maine.

Eva wrote her name on the front dark end paper.

After Eva received the Bible, she, or perhaps Robert Beattie, entered the names and birth dates of her children, who were born between 1922 and 1929.

From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome - though please be careful with information about living people]

Eva Gertrude Grant was born December 17, 1899 at Stacyville, Maine, the daughter of John B. and Cynthia Elizabeth (Chase) Grant.  On September 13, 1920, Eva married Louis Peter Dechane, son of Peter and Marie Clementine (Willette/Ouellet) Dechane.  Louis was born September 30, 1894.  Louis died in 1979, and Eva in 1984.  Louis' mother Clementine had previously been married to Edward White, who died in 1882.
