The addition of Joseph Pitre* to the children of Ignace Pitre & Marguerite Roy is a hard one to place properly. His 1853 marriage entry in the St. Hughes, Bagot register gives his name as Joseph Pitt, and lists him as a major son of deceased Ignace & Marguerite Roi. Witnesses include his brother Ignace, and brother-in-law Antoine Henaut. The 1861 Upton, Bagot census shows: Joseph Pitre 35 farmer, wife Florence Thuote 27, Marguerite Roi 65 widow, Lazare Latour 15, Francis Haneau 7 (thereby including his widowed mother Marguerite Roy and a nephew Francois Hunault). These 2 persons are still with Joseph (46) and wife Florence (44) in the 1871 census of Ste. Helene, Bagot.

This would put Joseph's birth at about 1825, which doesn't 'fit' in between the others. The birth record for Joseph(te) in May 1823 could be his as the record seems to indicate 'Joseph' rather than Josephte. However the August 1823 burial record for Josephte clearly says Josephte, age 3 months. Joseph could be Ignace born 1819, as I cannot locate a burial record.

Having at least 16 children, of whom only 3 survived to adulthood, may have made keeping track of ages difficult. Son Ignace is a good example. His marriage record has him as a major son when he marries in 1838, but the 1861 census lists him as age 44, and as 47 in his burial record in 1865. So this Ignace could have been the one born in 1815 or in 1819.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Ignace by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Ignace:

Pitre-2295 and Pitre-118 appear to represent the same person because: clear duplicate
posted by Jeanette Rogers
Changed his father Joseph Pitre to the husband of the woman who is listed as his mother. He was connected to a different Joseph Pitre who was dead years before this man was born. See changes if you have any questions.

Pitre-2295 and Pitre-118 are not ready to be merged because: His father's lineage is in question -- I think this needs to be delayed until correct ancestors are determined.
Pitre-2295 and Pitre-118 appear to represent the same person because: These appear to be the same person; however, there seems to be a dispute about the correct parents.
