The Josephe Desilets that is the daughter of Louis Desilets and Catherine Frigon married Raphael Bourk on 23 Aug 1802 in Trois Rivieres. She died on 24 Nov 1840 at the age of 68. This corresponds perfectly to her 7 April 1772 birth date. She is listed as Josette on her baptismal record but both her marriage record and death record lists her as Marie. The baptismal record and marriage record both state that her godfather is Jean Doucet which is how I was able to confirm the link that this Josephe and the Marie married to Raphael are one and the same.
As far as Josephe Desilets who married Jean Charles Jalbert, I have been unable to verify her parents. Dominique Campagna's Repertoire des Mariages de Trois Rivieres, 1654-1900 lists Josephte's parents as Joseph Desilets and Marie Bourgeois. According to both the 1751 census and her death record of 16 July 1760 in Becancour, Josephe's birth date is 1780, three years before the Desilets/Bourgeois wedding. In addition, the wedding document for Jean-Charles and Josephte doesn't state the parents for either. It says that Joseph Desilets is standing in for the father of Josephte.
If you're interested, I can translate this for you off-line.
