Generation 3 : Jean-Baptiste Loiselle married Marie-Anne Beaudry, 1719, in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec

Jean-Baptiste Loiselle, born 1692, was son of Joseph Loisel and Jeanne Langlois.  He was one of 12 children, of which there were three brothers that survived to marry and carry on the Loiselle name.

Jean-Baptiste Loiselle married Marie-Anne Beaudry in 1719 in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec. And they had 13 children over 23 years all in Pointe-aux-Trembles.  Six children died as infants.  His wife, Marie-Anne Beaudry died in 1754 in Pointe-aux-Trembles. Jean-Baptiste died in 1767 at age 72 in St Charles-sur-Richelieu, QC.  One of his sons, Toussaint married in St. Charles in 1752.

The Loisel and Beaudry families  had known each other for many years. Marie-Anne Beaudry’s grandfather, Toussaint Beaudry, was a neighbor of Jean-Baptiste’s father Joseph Loisel, when he bought the Francois Bau farm in 1681.  Jean-Baptiste’s brother, Joseph married Marguerite Beaudry, the daughter of Toussaint Beaudry and Barbe Barbier in 1710.  So like many French Canadian early pioneer families, there is a lot of intermingling!

The only other thing that I know about the life of Jean-Baptiste Loiselle, is that he was elected “marguillier” in 1739. And thanks to Doreen Scherer, a descendant of Robert Loisel, I have learned

that a “marguillier” is like a church warden, he helps to run the parish with the priests, usually there are more than one…they take the offering during the service, count the money…… help the sacristain (sort of janitor, this one help with bell ringing, upkeep of the buildings etc),  help with the choir, take the priests to visit the homes….each one has a responsibility and are elected usually by vote after mass by head of household from the parish and it is considered an honor to be chosen.

Le marguillier (du latin matricularis, qui tient un registre) avait, dans chaque paroisse, la charge du registre des personnes qui recevaient les aumônes de l’Eglise. Il servait d’aide au sacristain, nommait et révoquait les chantres, les bedeaux… Ce n’est pas une profession mais une charge.
