Joseph 'Misigade' (Hairy Legs) had been a name given him by his native friends, and he had returned to the Red River Valley in 1826 following his father. They had been accompanied by Joseph's yonger brother Francois, who had joined up with them after coming out of Quebec. Joseph had been twenty years old. He had left Lac la Biche with his father Jean Baptiste and his grandfather Joseph Desjarlais, and they had moved to Baie St. Paul Manitoba. (Remember, I had warned you about the name Joseph)

In 1834 Joseph married LaLouise Josephte Richard, daughter of Joseph Richard and Isabelle (First Nations). And two years after Joseph had married he had opened up a fur trading store on the Souris River. But because of the frequent attacks from the Sioux Indians he had walled the store within an oak pallisade, and that trading store had become known as Fort Desjarlais.
And out of the union of Joseph Desjarlais and Josephte Richard are born 13 beautiful children. They are listed below.
