Generation 6: Prudent Loiselle-Sinot and his Children

The children of Prudent Loiselle migrate to Chile, Dakota’s and various points of New England …

 Aurora Loiselle 7th great granddaughter of Louis Loisel.png Prudent Loiselle-Sinot is 6th Generation of Loisel’s in Canada, descendant of Louis Loisel and Marguerite Charlot.

Aurora Loiselle is great granddaughter of Moise Loiselle, and 10th generation descendant of Louis Loisel.

Aurora has a great collection of letters exchanged by Veronique Poulet and the children of Prudent Loiselle as the family was separated by the distance places that their lives took them. Aurora had copies of many of these photos and letters for display at the Louis Loisel descendants meeting in Jun 2013. A copy of a presentation that she created is attached here.

    Hi! I’m a Sinotte living in Manchester, NH! I wonder if we’re related somehow.

    • karensinotte Says:

      Absolutely, your family are descendants of Joseph loiselle-Sinotte that maried Edesse Daignault and settled in Saint-Georges-de-Windsor Quebec from La Presentation QC between 1861-1863. We are cousins!

  2. Colleen (Halsdorff) Palacios Says:

    I am a descendent of Marguerite Loiselle. She and Isadore Jodoin had a grand-daughter, Emilia (Jodoin) Menard, who was my great great grandmother. I’m not sure how closely you and I are related, but it appears we are at least distant cousins. Thank you for doing all this research, Karen. It has been an absolute joy reading about everyone, and following my lineage all the way back to France!

    • karensinotte Says:

      Marguerite Loiselle who married to Isadore Jodoin is sister of Moise Loiselle. Aurora Loiselle is great granddaughter of Moise Loiselle, who immigrated to Chile in mid 1800s. Aurora has a great collection of letters from Moise’s siblings and had copies of many of these photos and letters for display at the Louis Loisel descendants meeting in Jun 2013. A copy of a presentation that she created is attached here.

      She will be thrilled to connect and we can add your “branch” to the family tree when you provide the information.

      • Colleen Palacios Says:

        Oh my! Sorry about the delay (I didn’t get notification of a response). Thank you for that link, great presentation. I can fill in a little info about Marguerite’s family… at least the part that follows my lineage. I have mostly names and birthdays, but very little in the way of locations, photos, biographies, etc. But there are too many children/siblings to list here. I’m keeping track of everything on, and I’ll try to figure out how to export a read-only file to send to you. Also, as I’ve replied to Aurora, my email address is, if you have any questions. Thanks again!

        Very cool Colleen.
        Charles Menard married Amelia Jodoin in 1903
        Amelia Jodoin is daughter of Ernest Odilon Jodoin and Virginie Martel
        Ernest O Jodoin is son of Isadore and Margerite Loiselle
        So that makes you and and Aurora 3rd cousins 3 times removed.

  3. Aurora Loiselle Says:

    Hey Karen you are amazing!!! A great researcher. This is one of the pieces of info I was expecting one day: to hear from the families of Moise’s siblings in the USA or western Canada, where some others went. So, this note is also a call for Colleen, who obviously is in my genealogy with no doubt!!! Marguerite Loiselle, wife of Isidore Jodoin, is my great grandaunt. It seems Colleen must be much younger than me. Colleen send me your personal e-mail, postal address, phone, etc. if you wish, so we can share more info about our families!!! Hugs to both of you from

    • Colleen Palacios Says:

      Hi Aurora! So sorry about the late reply… I didn’t see your post until just now. Best way to reach me is probably through email: My research is all pretty rudimentary, but I’m happy to share what I’ve found, and I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂
