It has been quite exciting to meet distant cousins, Elizabeth and Mrs Rupert, who are descendents of sixth generation Joseph Loiselle dit Sinotte – and through name changes from Loiselle to Wiswell or Wisell and Sinnett.
Joseph Loiselle is son of Joseph Loiselle and Judith Gosselin.
Joseph7 Loiselle-Sinotte (Joseph6 Loiselle-Sinot, Toussaint5 Loiselle-Sinotte, Jean-Baptiste4 Loiselle, Joseph3, Louis2 Loisel/Loysel, Louis1) was born 27 May 1783 in Beloeil, QC, and died 06 Feb 1852 in St-Hyacinthe, QC. He married Marie-Josephte Pinsonneault 16 Sep 1805 in St. Marc-sur-Richelieu, QC. She was born 12 Jul 1785 in St Jean Francois Regis, St Philip, QC, and died Aft. 1852 in St-Hyacinthe, QC.

While some of the children continued with the Loiselle surname, it appears that many of his descendants used the Sinotte surname and ended up in the states.
- One son Joseph Loiselle b 1807 had at least three children. One of them Augustus Synott ended up in Waterbury CT.
- Another son Charles that ended up in Nebraska with his children ending up in Washington State by way of Moriah, NY somehow (accourding to Elizabeth).
- Another son Levis Sinotte and his descendants ended up in St-Hughes, QC.
- and finally, Louis Loiselle Sinotte and his children ended up using Sinotte surname and settled in Braintree, VT.
