He was the second in command of the Patriot Camp of Napierville. Convicted of treason along with his son Achille, who was treasurer of the Napierville Rebel Unit, and 56 other French Canadians, he was sent to Parramatta Prison north of Sydney Australia. The prison ship, "Buffalo", left Canada in 1839 and arrived in Sydney almost 6 months later in 1840.

Description of PH Morin before being sent to Australia.
"He could read and write, Catholic, married, 3 male children, 1 female, a mariner charged with treason on 24 Dec 1838 and trial on 2 Jan 1839. No former convictions, sentence: Lifetime exile. He was 5 ft 6 1/2 in tall, complexion sallow, (light olive brown) hair: brown to grey, eyes: brown. Particular marks or scars: 2 front upper teeth decaying, raised mole under right side of chin, hairy breast and arms, third finger of right hand contracted, scar on ball of left thumb, another on ball of left hand."
From the 3rd court trial of rebels, "...Pierre Hector Morin, patron de navire, de Napierville, age de 58 ans, pere de cinq enfants, incendie (instigator), comdamné à mort, deporté."
His age here of 58 would suggest he was born in 1780, in conflict with tombstone dates.
The mix of rebels on board the ship of exiles is reflected in the bed places of Pierre and his son. Two box-like beds holding up to 4 people each below the gun deck had 2 lawyers, a doctor, a farmer, and a merchant`s helper.
The records taken of prisoners in Australia in Mar 1840 have the age of Pierre at 54, which, depending on his birth date, would have him born in 1785 or 1786. The tombstone engravings state he was 82 in 1866 at death. He died on 1 Oct 1866 in Amherstburg ON. He was buried in St John the Baptist Cemetery Amherstberg.

He was married to Marie Victoire Cote (daughter of 2nd h Charles-Claude Cote and 1st w Angelique-Victoire Dupere) on 25 Jul 1808 in Notre Dame de Quebec Quebec City. Marie Victoire Cote14,1 was born on 11 Nov 1787 in Quebec. An uncle was Pierre Forton and an aunt, Marie Anne Derome
The oil paintings of Marie Victoire and Pierre Hector are in the Fort Malden Museum near Amherstberg, ON. The oils were done in 1808, the year of their marriage.
Dr. Cote, a leader of the Rebellion of 1837/8 was a half-brother to Victoire.
When Pierre was living as an Exile in Australia, Victoire went to live with son, Achille, in Sandwich, the Windsor ON area of today. She died about 1860 in Quebec. Captain Pierre-Hector Morin and Marie Victoire Cote had the following children:

+9 i. Pierre Hector Jr Morin (born in 1808/9).
+10 ii. Achille-Gabriel Morin (born on 17 Jul 1815).
+11 iii. Eugenie Morin (born in 1821).
12 iv. Lucien Morin1. A farmer in the Saint-Valentin or Napierville area. He participated in the rebellion of 1837 with the Napierville Camp. Arrested 11 Nov 1838 in the company of his father near Odelltown as they were attempting to leave to the United States. Listed as "arrested for an act of rebellion" In early 1839, he was condemned to death. Went to St Louis MO after 1840.

7. Dr Cyrille-Hector-Octave Cote15,1 (2nd w Marie Rose Duhamel-3, 1st h Capt. Julien-2, Robert-1) was born on 1 Sep 1809 in Quebec. He died on 4 Oct 1850 in Hinesburg Vermont. He was a half brother of PH Morin, and was also involved in the Patriotes organization in Napierville as a leader with Papineau. With a price of 500 pounds on his head, he fled to the United States to later join up with Dr Robert Nelson to attack Lower Canada from the US. After the cause of independence was lost, he remained in the US practicing medicine and renounced the Catholic Church to become a Baptist minister.
Côté would hold many professions during his life, teacher, doctor, politician, journalist and minister. He had been a supporter of Papineau as early as 1826 and would play a key role in the event of 1837 and 1838. Côté led an assembly of rebels with Papineau at Napierville. After the defeat at St. Charles, he fled to the United States. Here he joined up with Robert Nelson and together, without Papineau, they plotted a second rebellion. Early in 1838, an attempted invasion of Lower Canada failed and Côté was arrested by the Americans for violation of the Neutrality Laws. However, he was quickly released and immediately began planning for another invasion. Nelson and Côté led the rebel forces into Lower Canada on the night of November 3 and 4 and captured Napierville. But this second rebellion was decisively defeated at the battle of Odelltown. Côté broke with Papineau and the other exiled rebels in 1840. He converted to the Baptist Church and worked as a minister in both Canada and the United States. He died after an illness in 1850

He was married to Margaret Yellowby Jobson in 1833 in Napierville Quebec. Margaret Yellowby Jobson1 died on 21 Sep 1851 in Hinesburg Vermont.


9. Pierre Hector Jr Morin16,17,16,16,1,18 (Captain Pierre-Hector-4, 2nd w Marie Rose Duhamel-3, 1st h Capt. Julien-2, Robert-1) was born in 1808/9 in Montreal Lower Canada. He died on 19 Feb 1871 in Sandwich Essex County Ontario. His age in Feb 1871 was noted by census as 63. A customs house officer as was Edmond Anderson who married Eugenie Morin, a sister of PH Morin Jr. and the daughter of Pierre Morin and Victoire Cote. He was appointed Postmaster of Sandwich (Windsor area) in 1843 until 1865. He kept the post office in the William G. Hall building, at Lot 5, East Bedford Street (now Sandwich St).
A letter from Pierre Hector Morin in Australia was sent to Victoire, Achille`s mother, living in Sandwich. The federal census of 1871 notes a Peter Heaton Morin living in Sandwich as a customs collector. Five common points of reference would strongly suggest this is `our` Pierre Hector JR. Perhaps the political climate of the day in Ontario, which was anti-French and anti-Catholic `encourage` the name change.

He was married to Jane Langley Howse (daughter of Richard Howse and Mary Langley) on 25 May 1836 in Detroit MI. Jane Langley Howse19,20,1 was born on 21 Mar 1819 in England. She died on 2 Aug 1907 in Toronto CA. She cannot be located in the 1881 census of Sandwich. Pierre Hector Jr Morin and Jane Langley Howse had the following children:

The 1871 census listed him as a telegraph operator in the Town of Sandwich in household #144. He fought for the North in the US Civil War with the 23rd Michigan Infantry. Tancred was in Alpena MI, on the NE coast on Lake Huron, for 3 years
17 v. Samuel Gardiner Morin1 was born on 22 May 1847 in Sandwich Essex County Ontario.

10. Achille-Gabriel Morin1 (Captain Pierre-Hector-4, 2nd w Marie Rose Duhamel-3, 1st h Capt. Julien-2, Robert-1) was born on 17 Jul 1815 in Montreal. He died on 30 Aug 1898 in Amherstburg Essex County ON. Achille was the treasurer of the Napierville Patriot Camp leading up to the Rebellion of 1837 in Quebec. He was slightly wounded in a leg while escaping from British troops. He, along with his father, was incarcerated in a Montreal jail in the fall of 1838.
Description after sentencing in 1839 in Montreal or that upon disembarking at Parramatta Prison in Australia.
"Achilles Morin, age 25, could read and write, Catholic, single, a clerk in Montreal, charged with treason on 24 Dec 1838. No former convictions, sentence: Life of exile. He was 5 ft 7 1/2 in, tall, pale complexion, brown hair, dark hazel eyes, marks or scars: mark of a large burn on left side of mouth, small scar on left side of forehead, scar inside of top of forefinger of left hand, another on top of little finger of same."
From the 3rd court trial of rebels, 24 Dec 1838 to 2 Jan 1839..".Achille Morin, cultivateur de Napierville, age de 22 ans, non marie, condamne a mort, deporte."
As the French Canadian political prisoners (Exiles) had exemplary behaviour, they were sent to the less confined camp at Longbottom, about 10 miles from the Sydney of the times.
They were allowed to make wood boxes and firewood to sell in Sydney, and even allowed to walk there and back.
With his father, he returned from Australia via England in August of 1847.
He and brother Pierre went to Missouri for a few years, but came back because of the climate, and they both settled in Amherstberg ON.
The Collector`s Roll of Amherstberg 1860 list him as a freeholder of 1/8 acre part 2 Ramsay St. The 1861 census lists him as a clerk and widower. The voter`s list of 1862 list him on Lot 6 Ramsay St. The 1866 Collector`s Roll has him as a freeholder of Lot 6 Simcoe St. In 1871, he was living as a freeholder on Lot 6 Ramsay St. An anomaly here with that census is the age of Achille and the spelling of his name. His age is given as 52, which would place his birth date to c 1819, and Achille has an "s".
From the Amherstberg Echo- 1898 after his death, "the town loses a man of kindly disposition who was beloved by all his acquaintances. He was well known for his generosity and liberality."
Fauteux notes Achille was born in 1810.
