Biography

She and Joseph lived in Grand Calumet in 1849 as noted on their son's marriage record.[1]


Note

PRDH notes her as born out of wedlock (Bourque-573 23:19, 13 August 2018 (UTC))

Marguerite Brien dit Desrochers This info came from a man in Petawawa who has also researched the Turcotte family. Marguerite, the wife of Joseph Turcotte, is something of a mystery. She was the foster daughter of Jean-Baptiste Andre Brien dit Desrochers and Marie-Louise Parent who did not have any natural children of their own. Marguerite is clearly recorded as "Marguerite alias Brien dite Desrochers" which means she was using their family name. Now usually in these old Catholic records names are scrupulously recorded but with family stories being common in several of her children's descendants, it would appear that Marguerite may have been an Indian who was fostered by the Brien dit Desrochers family in L'Assomption, Quebec. Later in her life she called herself "Marguerite Desrochers" and "Marguerite Durocher" and in one case "Marguerite Brien". So, unfortunately, there is no further information about her ancestry. I always make sure to record her name as Marguerite alias Brien dite Desrochers just the way she appears in the earliest records. [2]
Note

removed date of death as on verification, she and her husband have a last known child born in September 1835 in L'Assomption: Gilbert, so cannot have been deceased in 1832. There is also a marriage of their son Xavier (François Xavier, born 9 Jan 1820) in 1849 in Ste-Anne-du-Grand-Calumet mission, which lists both her and her husband as being residents of Grand-Calumet parish (Northwest of Ottawa near Campbell's Bay).

Date of birth needs verification, no baptism found for her on that date or close after.

Parents should be removed as all evidence shows they were foster parents, therefore not correct to have them listed there, they can be listed here in bio, Jean Baptiste André Brien dit Desrochers and Marie Louise Perrault (not Parent as noted above)

The following are the entries found for this marriage:

-Marriage 12 Jan 1813 in L'Assomption, she is listed as Marguerite dite Brien fille dans a...(illegible word) named for her, both cited as residing in that parish, witness for her is Jean Baptiste André Brien père nouricier, as well as another Brien listed as her friend.[3]

-baptism 2 June 1814 in St-Jacques-de-l'Achigan of son Joseph, born 1 June, she is listed as Marguerite Brien

-baptism 9 Jan 1820 in L'Assomption of son François Xavier, born same day, listed as Marguerite Brien

-birth and baptism 22 Oct 1822 in L'Assomption, son Nazaire, listed as Marguerite Brien

-birth and baptism 30 Jan 1824 in L'Assomption, daughter Marie Judith, listed as Marguerite Brien

-birth and baptism 23 Apr 1826 in L'Assomption, daughter Marie Justine, listed as Marguerite Desrochers

-birth 5 Oct baptism 6th Oct 1831 in St-Jacques-de-l'Achigan, son Bruno Urgel , listed as Marguerite Brien Derocher

-birth 7 Nov baptism 8 Nov 1833 in L'Assomption, daughter Émilie Virginie, listed as Marguerite Desrochers

-marriage 2 Mar 1835 in St-Jacques-de-l'Achigan of son Joseph with Marcelline Veine (Venne), listed as Marguerite Brien Desrochers

-birth and baptism 20 Sept 1835 in L'Assomption, son Gilbert, listed as Marguerite Brien

-birth 15 Aug and baptism 17 Sept 1840 in Buckingham (east of Ottawa), daughter Sophia, listed as Margret Brien (sic), they are listed as living in Grand-Calumet in that document (which was in English and not French)

-marriage 5 Oct 1849 in Ste-Anne-du-Grand-Calumet, son Xavier with Sophie St-Jean, listed as Marguerite Durocher, everybody resident of Grand-Calumet

In no document does she sign, she is unable to per evidence of her marriage record. So variations on her last name that was used are actually clerical. In most instances of these records, she was not even present, baptisms normally had father and godparents present only.

NOTE:In nosorigines she is listed as being 16 on her marriage and being born in l'Assomption Parrish - which makes sense because that's where her husband and adoptive father are from. It says on her marriage certificate that she was born 'sans aveu' it means that she was illegitimate (mother & father unknown, or usually not married). This would mean that she was born in 1797 and not 1790. There was no baptism of a girl on April 7, 1790 or for the next month. However, on February 28, 1797 a Marie-Marguerite (illegitimate) was baptized in l'Assomption. She is the only Marie-Marguerite (ill.) born that year. Her godparents where a married man and his sister-in-law: Pierre Lebegue 35(Lebrecque - Lesperance) and Marie Josette Janson-Neveu 47. Usually godparents are chosen from relatives. Had she been native - the term 'sauvagesse' would have been written on her marriage contract. Marie Petrin.

-No marriages of children of this couple after 1849 found in Quebec.

SABATINO, Joseph Michael passed away peacefully with strength and courage at Hospice Peterborough on July 19, 2019 in his 89th year. Joseph was born in Lakefield, Ontario on June 7, 1930, the son of John Sabatino and Margaret Bissonnette. Beloved and cherished husband of Marianne Sabatino (nee Leonard) of 60 years d. March 31, 2019. Loving and proud father of John Sabatino (Fay), Michael Sabatino (Sandra) and Carla Sabatino (Vincent Zaffino). Dear Grandpa to Christina, Cara, Tyler and Jessica. Joe will be dearly missed by his brother Eugene and his wife Ruth of Toronto and their children Timothy and Jason and families. He will be fondly remembered by Sisters-in-Law Betty Lou Fair (late Robert) and Linda Pearson (late Robert), Brother-in-Law, Kevin Heffernan (late Barbara), and many nieces and nephews.

Retired Principal of Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board. As a long-range thinker, concerned with what students learned for the 1980s, 90s and the 21st century, Joe Sabatino was attune to the “information explosion”. He knew that students must be taught how and where to find relevant information. At the end of his 35 year career in education Joe was quoted as saying, “We are in the midst of a major change in education”.

Upon retiring from education Joe continued to operate several businesses. Born of an innovative father whose spirit fueled Joe, it is not surprising that most of Joe’s life was focused in entrepreneurship. His success was a result of his vision, daring, hard work and good business sense. Joe’s balanced values toward business, faith and community propelled him to positively impact life as he knew it.

Joe had a kind, generous, optimistic and philanthropic nature. He was a happy person who loved life and would do it all again. His strength, determination, strong work ethic, guidance, words of wisdom and storytelling are fondly remembered and cherished. He will be forever missed.

Joe adored his family and treasured his relatives and friends, always seeing the good in everyone. He loved and enjoyed music, especially jazz, blues and swing. A special verse from Louie Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World” is his heartfelt wish for all:

I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying
"I love you".

Joseph’s family would like to thank the many doctors (Dr. Beamish, Dr. Heidman, Dr. Matheson, Dr. Morelli and Dr. Whiting) and dedicated medical staff, nurses and paramedics at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Emergency Unit and Hospice Peterborough for their tremendous care and compassion during his time with them.

Visitation at DUFFUS FUNERAL HOME, 431 George Street South from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Funeral Mass at ST. ANNE’S CHURCH on Wednesday, July 24 at 11:00 a.m. Reception to follow at ST. ANNE’S PARISH HALL.

In memory of Joseph, donations to Hospice Peterborough, Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation or Community Living Trent Highlands for CDA would be appreciated by the family. On-line condolences may be expressed at duffusfuneralhome.com

28 A Marriage contract notarized by Mercier and Raymond of L’Assomption dated January 6th, 1813 likely held in the repository at Joliette. The contract was
an elaborate four-page document endorsed by two notaries.
Marguerite was identified as “De dix-
sept ans, fille naturelle et adoptif.”
The document lists the names of 33 persons who assembled for the occasion, including her entourage of 12 of her
friends. The dowry included a cash amount of 124 Pounds,
a chest of 24 drawers, bed and bedding, a double sideboard,
a milking cow, two female sheep, six hens and a cock by her
benefactor, and a sleigh and saddle by his parents. Plus, “le dite future epoux a donit doue le dite future epouse de la somme de six cent livres” translates as “said future husband endows said future wife with the sum of 600 pounds.”2
At that time, the Pound was the regular currency in Canada.

Clarification on the meaning of "fille naturelle" from many sources on French Canadian Genealogy:

Clarifying French Records
When searching for your aboriginal ancestry this
phrase may cause some confusion: “fille naturelle et
adoptive” translates as “illegitimate and adopted
daughter”. Naturelle means illegitimate, it does not
mean native.
Colette is one of our most valuable volunteer
researchers and often advises us on French issues.
Thanks Colette for clarifying this.

29 A short history of the Pretty Family from the Lanark County Genealogical Society
Source: http://lcgsresourcelibrary.com/articles/A-PRET.HTM

It is thought our forefathers came from the Normandy region of France before settling in England. The French name was thought to be Pitre. The name first appeared as Prytty on the Subsidy Rolls, Suffolk, England in 1327. The name Pretty appears on the rolls in 1428 and again in 1524. The name Pretty is derived from the Old English praettig and is thought to come from the Latin practicus meaning skilled.

Daniel Pretty, our forefather, was from Wiltshire, England on the Salisbury Plains near Stonehenge. As a young man he was a shepherd on the Plains. The date of his birth is still uncertain as each census records appears to disagree with a previous one. It appears he was born between 1794 and 1796.

He enlisted in the 76th Regiment of Foot and began his military career in Spain. Eventually his regiment made its way into France and engaged the Napoleonic armies. On march 31, 1814 they made a triumphant entry into Paris.

Daniel and his regiment along with many others left France in early summer of 1814 and sailed off to North America where the British and American armies were engaged in war. In August 1814, Daniel arrived in Canada and his part in the conflict would begin at Lake Champlain in early September. On December 24, 1814 the Treaty of Ghent was signed and the war was over. He would remain in the army for a few more years.

On May 11, 1821 Alexander Wark, his wife and three children, Margaret was one, sailed from Greenock, Scotland for Quebec. The journey aboard the ship Commerce lasted forty days and they arrived in Quebec on June 20, 1821. They were placed on a steam boat for a two day trip to Montreal. Their luggage was placed in wagons provided by the Government and hauled to Lachine, ten miles away. At Lachine, the passengers were put in flat bottomed boats for the journey up the St. Lawrence River. The men had to wade in waist-deep water to guide and pull the boats through the rapids. After six days on the water, they arrived at Prescott. There they waited on horses and wagons to take them 74 miles to New Lanark. Alexander Wark and his family left Prescott in late July and the land journey took several days. At Lanark they received their land ticket and chose their 100 acres. On August 7, 1821, forty-eight days after arriving in the New World and almost three months after leaving Scotland they settled on their property, the west half of Lot 18, concession 6 of Lanark Township. Their first priority was to build a dwelling to house the family during the coming cold Canadian winter.

Daniel Pretty was discharged from the military in mid 1816. Little is known about where he was and what his occupation was between 1816 and 1825. Perhaps at a church gathering or other social event, Daniel met Margaret Wark. She was about seventeen years of age when they arrived in 1821. Daniel would have been about twenty-four years old in the same year.

In 1824-25, Daniel and Margaret were married at the Presbyterian Church in Middleville, Ontario. For two years they lived on a farm near Middleville and it was here that their first child, Maria, was born.

They settled on a land grant of 100 acres that had been abandoned by the original owner, Neil Barr. The land was rocky and untillable. It was located on the east half of Lot 14, concession 8 near Rosetta. The Government exchanged this lot for the east half of Lot 6, concession 6, Darling Township, Ontario on April 18, 1830. Here he spent the rest of his life. He did not apply for his land patent until six years after he had acquired the property.

Their daughter Margaret and first son Thomas were born on the property at Rosetta. The remainder for the family were born at the farm in Darling.

Neither Daniel or Margaret could read or write and signed any documents with an "X" to which a witness testified was their "mark". When Thomas was able to read and write he looked after all business matters for them.

When Daniel was discharged from the army he was given ten articles from the Government Stores to get started in civilian life: blankets -3, lock and key -1, latch and catch -1, barn hinges -1 pair, banon hook -1, bill hook -1, beefing hook -1. He was also given ten pounds of wheat to plant on land cleared by hand from the forest. In the fall, the grain was cut by hand and threshed with a flail. A bag of wheat was carried to the nearest grist mill, at that time Brockville, sixty miles. The flour was carried home for baking. There were no roads, only bush trails. The rivers had to be forded as there were no bridges at that time.

There were no cows or pigs so the settlers had no milk or fat to cook with. There were no horses to haul produce. Oxen were used as beasts of burden if and when the settler was fortunate enough to get one or two. Trees were felled with an axe and logs hewn with a broad axe to make timbers for building houses and barns. Handmade nails were a scarce commodity and they did not have glass for windows.

Our forefathers were truly remarkable people. 
Pretty, Daniel (I54)
