Generation 7: Joseph Loiselle-Sinotte married Edesse Daignault 1844

Joseph Loiselle-Sinotte was the fifth child and fourth son of Jean Baptiste Loiselle-Sinotte and Marie Chapdelaine-Beaulac and was born in 1819 in La Presentation, Quebec.

Joseph Loiselle-Sinotte married Edesse Daignault.  From marriage certificate Joseph was a “cultivateur de Stuckley” at the time of his marriage in 1844. His parents “JB Loiselle dit Sinotte and Marie Chapdelaine dit Beaulac of this parish”, Edesse’s parents listed as  “Michele Daigneau, Cultivateur, and Victorine Miclet of this parish”. Witnesses were Piere Bergeron de Roseford de Pond, Ambroise Maheux and Joseph Robittaile.

Joseph Loiselle-dit-Sinotte and Edesse Daignault were the first Loiselle-dit-Sinotte’s in St-Georges-de-Windsor.  Here is a picture of the village of St-George-de-Windsor.

They came from St-Dominique to St-Georges sometime after the 1861 census (they aren’t in 1861 Census for that year) but before May 2, 1866 when their child Jacques Elie died in St-Georges. Jacques Elie was just 5 years old.  And, sadly, a second child, Marie-Edesse, who died just two months later, she was 15 years old.   Joseph Sinotte and Edesse Daignault had a son Benjamin Sinotte born 1863 but I can’t find his birth certificate either in St-Dominique or in St-Georges.

Joseph Loiselle died in 1899 in St- George de Windsor at the age of 70, he was widowed 6 years earlier.

A bit about St-Georges-de-Windsor, QC:

The first birth in Saint-Georges-de-Windsor was at least 1855 if not earlier.  In 1861 Census, there were 610 people living in St-Georges with 129 children shown as born in St-Georges. The oldest being 14.  There were a total of 71 students in the village out of 247 children age 5 through 16 that might have been considered school age.

The catholic church of the village was built in 1870 – it is supposed the only church in Quebec that has statutes of the 12 apostles. St-Georges is famous for its cheese, and for cattle farming.

In the 1871 Census, neither Joseph or Edesse could read or write. Benjamin Sinotte  (age 8) is the only Sinotte child going to school, Elie only 2, and Jean-Baptiste (13) and Pierre (15) perhaps being too old and working on the farm.

There is a great website that publishes a lot of information about the inhabitants of MRC of Asbestos whicn includes the communities of St-Georges-de-Windsor, St-Camille, Asbestos, Danville, St-Adrien, Saint-Joseph-de-Ham Sud and Wotton. It provides baptisms, marriages, deaths, census and other information of interest.

  3. Francine Caron Laroche Says:

    I am looking to know if anybody knows about Pierre Sinotte’s wife Élise Proulx. My mother, Estelle Boisclair deceased in 2003, was the grand-daughter of Pierre Sinotte and she often mentionned her grand-mother was of indian descent ??

    Commentaires pour la famille de Joseph Loiselle-Sinotte et Edesse Daigneault

    1. Joseph, n28-11 b1-12-1844, St-Dominique, Comté de Bagot, QC. d avant 1847 probablement aux USA.
    2. Joseph, né en novembre ou décembre 1847 aux USA et b à l’âge de 2 ans et 5 mois le 28 avril 1850 à St-Dominique
    Référence : Recensement de 1851 de St-Dominique. Joseph 1 n’y apparaît pas et Joseph 2, 5 ans, est dit né aux USA
    Au début des années 1840, la famille de Joseph et Edesse semble avoir fait un séjour aux USA. Leur second fils Joseph y est né (fin 1847) selon le recensement de 1851. Leur premier fils Joseph y est sans doute décédé.

    C’est donc Joseph2 qui a marié Agnès Lacerte

    Je doute que iv. Philippe soit un enfant de ce couple. Aucun Philippe n’apparaît dans cette famille aux recensement de 1861 et

      Wonderful additional information. Thanks.
      I saw a Philippe Sinotte in 1881 Census but in no others, and didn’t know where to put him. Still don’t.
      Are you a cousin?
      I have subsequently found the first son, Joseph Sinotte died 14 april 1846 buried 17 apr 1846 in Saint Hyacinthe, QC (Notre Dame du Rosaire).
      I have to follow up with Norm Charest who has photos of the second son, Joseph Sinotte, from 1940s visiting in St George!
      Met up with cousins, descendants of Jean-Baptiste Sinotte and Elvire Godbout, Benoit and his children, As well as descendants of Elie Jacques Sinotte. Very cool!

  5. Gilles Gauthier Says:

    Merci pour l’information sur Joseph Sinotte, décédé en 1846.
    Non, je ne suis pas un cousin. Parmélie Sinotte (mariée à Athanase Desilets), fille de Jean-Baptiste Sinotte et Elvire Godbout est la grand-mère maternelle de mon épouse.

  6. Gilles Gauthier Says:

    J’ai une photo des soeurs Sinotte, Annette et Parmélie. prise vers 1910. Si vous etes intéressée, je vous l’enverrai.

  7. karensinotte Says:

    Then your wife is a cousin, Parmelie Sinotte’s father is Jean-Baptiste Sinotte, who is the brother of my 2nd great grandfather, Pierre Sinotte from St George. So Parmelie is my 1st cousin 3 times removed and you wife then is probably my first cousin 6 times removed!

    Vous avez mon «e-mail». Pourriez-vous m’envoyer votre «e-mail» à mon adresse pour que je puisse vous envoyer la photo ?
