Joseph 1771-1825

Joseph was born September 27, 1771 in the town of St-Jean-Baptiste, of Quebec, Canada. He was the son of Jean-Baptiste Saurette and Marie-Catherine Gautier dite St-Germain. He married Marguerite Marotte dite Labonte January 27, 1794 in St-Mathias, Quebec, Canada. Joseph died March 25, 1825, in St-Jean-Baptiste.

I have no Drouin image for Joseph’s birth/baptism, but I do have this screen capture from the PRDH.

If you are so inclined, take a peek at the death notice for Joseph – obtained out of the Drouin.

View Joseph’s family report here.

View the Drouin image of Joseph’s marriage to Marguerite (note the surname is Soret).

Joseph and Marguerite had 15 children that I know of, but not all of them survived to adulthood. I do not have much more information other than the vital statistics that you see here.

I’m hoping that a trip to the town of St-Jean-Baptiste and the surrounding areas would yield some more information such as burial places and the like.

This is what the marriage entries for Joseph’s children look like according to the parish register for St-Jean-Baptiste:

Notice that all of them use some variation of Saurette-Larose. None of them had made a switch to Larose at the time of marriage.
