This is the second generation that the Loiselle-dit-Sinotte name was used. “Dit” names are explained here.
Joseph Loiselle was born 1761. He was the sixth child of Toussaint Loiselle and Marie-Anne Hogue. Joseph Loiselle would have grown up in St-Marc although he was 11 years old when his father died. He was also known as Joseph Loizelle-Synode.
His godparents were recorded as Joseph Senet and Marguerite Lavigne. [I am wondering if Joseph Senet was his uncle, who died March 1761, one month after the baptism.
He married Judith Gosselin in 1782 in Vercheres, QC – that was where Judith was from. Wedding guests included: Jean Baptiste Loisel, uncle; Prudent Loisel, brother; Baptiste Loisel, brother; Pierre Loisel, brother; Joseph Lachapel, brother-in-law or step-brother of groom; Marie-Jean Gosselin, uncle of bride; Joseph Gosselin, brother of bride. That means, Joseph’s uncle and three of his brothers attended the wedding. His eldest brother Toussaint didn’t come to the wedding. I wonder why? Maybe it was because his wife had just given birth a few months earlier.
Joseph and Judith are recorded here to have had 12 children over 11 years. The first two children were born in Beloeil, the next six were born in St-Charles, then two born in Beloeil and the last two were born in St-Marc-sur-Richelieu.
Joseph died at age 34. He left behind his wife with six children living: Judith the oldest was 11, Jean-Baptiste was 9, Andre was 8, Marie-Louise was 2, Ignace, Michel was just over one and a half years old and Marie-Louise just 3 months. Unfortunately, Marie-Louise died the following month. Two of the children, Antoine and Marie-Louise, both died two years later in July 1797. What a tough time that must have been for Judith Gosselin.
Judith Gosselin remarried in Feb 17, 1800 to Joseph Lussier.
