APPENDICES

Acadians Who Found Refuge in Louisiana, February 1764-early 1800s

HÉBERT

[AY-bear]

ACADIA

Louis Hébert came to Acadia with Jean de Biencourt, sieur de Poutrincourt et de Saint-Just, one of the founders of the colony, in the summer of 1606, soon after the French established Port-Royal.  Louis was an apothecary and horticulturist from Paris and a relative of Poutrincourt by marriage.  When the Port-Royal venture failed in 1607, Louis returned to France with most of the other men, but he returned to Port-Royal a few years later when Poutrincourt revived French presence in Acadia.  Unfortunately, Louis was at Port-Royal when Virginia Admiral Samuel Argall burned the settlement in November 1613.  Three years later, back in France, Samuel de Champlain coaxed Louis into moving to Québec with his wife, Marie Rollet, and their three children--Anne, Guillemette, and Guillaume.  Champlain granted Louis a three-year contract as resident physician and surgeon at 200 crowns per year with four hectares (approximately 10 acres) for a homestead at Québec.  The Héberts sailed to the settlement in March 1617.  Before departing Honfleur, however, Louis had learned that the fat salary Champlain's investors had promised him had been cut in half and that after his three-year contract expired he would be expected to work for the company that owned Québec without any compensation.  Despite this setback, Louis and his family went on to Québec; they were, in fact, the first permanent settlers in what was then only a fur trading post but which would become the most important French settlement in North America.  Louis's skills as an apothecary and a horticulturalist helped make life bearable at the frontier post.  Louis, in fact, was the first Canadian settler to support himself from the soil.  In 1621, Champlain appointed him King's attorney at Québec.  Louis was especially noted for his relations with the local Indians, who returned his respect and kindnesses.  In 1623 and 1626, the viceroys of New France granted Louis two land concessions:  Sault-au-Matelot, on Cap-Diamant, overlooking Québec, and St.-Joseph along Rivière St.-Charles below the settlement.  Louis also received the title of Sieur d'Epinay.  As a result of his appointment and his land grants, Louis and his family became fairly prosperous, but their good fortune was short-lived.  In January 1627, Louis fell through the ice and never recovered.  He died at Québec later in the month and was buried in the Récollet chapel.  His descendants remained at Québec, even under English occupation from 1629-32, so Louis the apothecary was not the progenitor of the Héberts of Acadia.  

~

The Acadian branch of the Hébert family did not appear until a generation after the death of Louis of Québec.  Two brothers, Antoine and Étienne Hébert, probably not kin to Louis of Paris, arrived at Port-Royal in c1640.  Some authorities claim that Antoine and Étienne were brothers of Jacques, fils, son of Jacques Hébert and Marie Juneau of La-Haye-Descartes, Touraine, France.  Jacques, fils's name appears in a notarized marriage contract in Québec in 1688, witnessed by Marie-Guillemette Hébert, a daughter of Québec pioneer Louis Hébert.  Acadian genealogist Stephen A. White has demonstrated, however, that Jacques Hébert, fils of Québec was actually Jacques Habert, which was a different family from the Héberts of Québec and Acadia, so the parentage and birthplace of the Hébert brothers are still unknown.  

.

What is known is that Antoine, born in c1621, was a young farmer turned cooper when he came to Port-Royal.  He married Geneviève Lefranc at Port-Royal in c1648.  They had three children, two sons--Jean, born in c1649, and another Jean, born in 1653--and a daughter, Catherine, born in c1656, who married into the LeBlanc family

Only one son, the second Jean, survived childhood.  He married Marie-Anne, daughter of Pierre Doucet, at Port-Royal in c1676.  Members of the family were counted at Minas in the early 1690s and at Chignecto in 1713.  Jean died probably at Minas in c1707, in his 50s.  Marie-Anne died at Grand-Pré in November 1710.  Jean and Marie-Anne had 14 children, including eight sons, seven of whom created families of their own.  Four of Jean and Marie-Anne's six daughters married into the LeBlanc, Boudrot, and Saulnier families.  

Oldest son Jacques, born at Port-Royal in c1677, married Jeanne, daughter of Claude Gautrot, at Port-Royal in c1703.  They settled at Chignecto and had 10 children, including four sons who married into the Arseneau, Bernard, Cyr, and Chiasson families.  Their five daughters married into the Arseneau, Bergeron dit de Nantes, Bernard, Bourg, Doucet, and Ricard families.  

Pierre dit Laprade or La Pradelle, born at Port-Royal in c1679, married Isabelle, daughter of Antoine Landry, at Port-Royal in c1702.  They also settled at Chignecto and had four children, including two sons who married into the Bourg and Gaudet families.  Pierre and Isabelle's two daughters married into the Gaudet, Cyr, and Boudrot families.  Isabelle died in c1709, and Pierre dit Laprade remarried to Marie-Josèphe, daughter of Jacques Blou, at Chignecto in c1710.  This second marriage produced six more children for Pierre dit Laprade, including three sons who married daughters of Jean-Baptiste Poirier and another son who married into the Bourg family.  Pierre's two daughters by his second wife married into the Thériot and Cormier families.  Pierre died probably in the 1750s, on the eve of Le Grand Dérangement.

Jean, fils, born at Port-Royal in c1681, married Marie-Marguerite, another daughter of Antoine Landry, at Port-Royal in c1701.  They settled at Cobeguit and had 12 children, including seven sons who married into the Dugas, Bourg, Benoit, Melanson, and Aucoin families.  Jean, fils and Marie-Marguerite's five daughters married into the Dugas, Bourg, and Hébert families.  Marie-Marguerite died before April 1734, when Jean, fils remarried to Marguerite, daughter of probably Jacques Leprince, at Grand-Pré, but this second marriage produced no children.  Jean, fils died at Cobeguit, date unrecorded.  In the late 1740s or early 1750s, his family left Cobeguit for Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, to escape British authority in Nova Scotia.

Joseph, born at Port-Royal in November 1685, married Anne-Marie, or Marie-Anne, daughter of Claude Boudrot, at Port-Royal in c1707.  They settled at Chignecto and had 12 children, including four sons who married into the Poirier, Cormier, Arseneau, and Bertrand families.  Joseph and Anne-Marie's seven daughters married into the Pothier, Levron, Arseneau, Melanson, Poirier, Babin, Forest, and Daigre families.  

René dit Groc, born in c1689 either at Port-Royal or Minas, married Marie, another daughter of Claude Boudrot, at Port-Royal in c1707.  They settled at Minas and had 12 children, including eight sons who married into the Doiron, Cyr, Dupuis, Bourg, LeBlanc, Forest, Landry, and Gautrot families.  René dit Groc and Marie's three daughters married into the Bourg, LeBlanc, and Dupuis families.  

Augustin, born probably at Minas in the early 1690s, married Anne, yet another daughter of Claude Boudrot, at Grand-Pré in September 1712.  They remained at Minas and had 10 children, including five sons who married into the Landry, Clouâtre, Poirier, and Dugas families.  One of Augustin and Anne's daughters married into the Landry family.  

Youngest son François, born probably at Minas in the late 1690s or early in the 1700s, married Anne, daughter of Michel Bourg, probably at Chignecto in c1726.  François died in the early 1760s during Le Grand Dérangement.  

.

Meanwhile, Antoine's brother Étienne, whose birth year is unknown, married Marie, daughter of Jean Gaudet, at Port-Royal in c1650.  Étienne is not in the first Acadian census of 1671 because he died a year or two before it was taken.  Before he died, he fathered 10 children, including four sons, all born at Port-Royal, who created families of their own.  His five daughters married into the Forest, LePrince, Comeau, Pinet, and Barrieau families.  

Oldest son Emmanuel, born in c1653, married Andrée, daughter of Vincent Brun and widow of Germain Thériot, at Port-Royal in c1680.  They settled at Port-Royal and then moved to Minas.  They had six children, including four sons who married into the Dupuis, Dugas, and Landry families.  Their daughter married into the Thibodeau family.  Emmanuel died at Grand-Pré in late 1744, in his 90s.  Some of his descendants used the dit Emmanuel or Manuel to distinguish themselves from their many cousins.

Étienne, fils, born in c1654, married Jeanne, another daughter of Pierre Comeau, at Port-Royal in c1679.  They moved to Minas, where they had 11 children, including two sons who married into the Dugas and Granger families.  Six of their daughters married into the Henry dit Robert, Caissie, Benoit, Boucher dit Des Roches, Villedieu, and Trahan families.  Étienne, fils died at Grand-Pré in November 1713, age 57.

Jean, born in c1659, married Jeanne, daughter of Jean Doiron, in c1692 at either Port-Royal or Minas.  They settled at L'Assomption, Pigiguit, and had 12 children, including six sons who married into the Saulnier, Mius d'Azy, Trahan, Courtenay, Boudrot, Lejeune, and Michel families.  Four of Jean and Jeanne's daughters married into the Henry dit Le Vieux, Guédry, Lacroix, and Vincent dit Clément families.  

Michel, born in c1666, married Isabelle, daughter of François Pellerin, at either Port-Royal or Minas in c1691.  They settled at Minas, where they had 16 children, including five sons who married into the Caissie, Gautrot, Boisseau, Levron, Thibodeau, and Boudrot families.  Eight of their daughters married into the Le Mordant dit Lanoy, Bourg, Coupiau dit Desaleur, Apart, Gautrot, Richard, Boudrot, Thériot, and Monmellian dit Saint-Germain families.  Michel died at Grand-Pré in January 1736, age 69.

Youngest son Antoine, le jeune, born in c1670, married Jeanne, daughter of Jean Corporon, probably at Port-Royal in c1691.  They settled at Port-Royal, where they had 15 children, including seven sons who married into the Labauve, Bastarache, Mius d'Azy, Saulnier, Mouton, Hébert, and Comeau families.  Seven of their daughters married into the Breau, Duon dit Lyonnais, Maillet, Aubois, Mius d'Azy, Gautrot, and Saulnier families.  Antoine le jeune remarried to Anne, daughter of Charles Orillon, at Port-Royal in February 1737.  They had three children, including a son who married into the Thibodeau and Hébert families.  One of their daughters married into the Deveau family.  Antoine le jeune's oldest son, Louis dit Baguette, participated in the Acadian resistance against British rule during King George's War.

.

By 1755, descendants of Antoine and Étienne Hébert could be found in many of the major Acadian communities, including Port-Royal, which the British called Annapolis Royal; Grand-Pré and Pigiguit in the Minas Basin; Cobeguit, Chignecto, and Chepoudy; and on Île St.-Jean. 

LE GRAND DÉRANGEMENT

Le Grand Dérangement of the 1750s scattered this huge family even farther.  ...

.

The Héberts who were deported to Virginia endured a fate worse than most of the other exiles from Minas.  The Virginia governor, Robert Dinwiddie, refused to allow the 1,500 Acadians sent to him in the fall of 1755 to disembark in the Old Dominion.  Hundreds of the exiles died on the filthy, crowded ships anchored in Hampton Roads while the Virginia authorities pondered their fate.  A few Acadians were allowed to come ashore at various James River settlements, but they were watched closely.  When some of them began to fraternize with African slaves, the Virginians returned them to the transports, where they languished with the others.  A hand full of sturdy young Acadians managed to slip off the vessels and trek overland through fields and forests and across the mountains, back to French Canada.  But most of them remained on the fetid ships, and more of them died.  Finally, in the spring of 1756, Governor Dinwiddie and his councilors made their decision ... the Acadians must go!  In May, the first shipment of Acadians left for England, and in two weeks all of them had gone--299 to Bristol, 250 to Falmouth, 340 to Southampton, and 336 to Liverpool--1,225 of the original 1,500.   Their ordeal only worsened in the English ports, where they were treated like common criminals.  In the spring of 1763, after the war with Britain finally ended, the French government consented to repatriate the survivors to France. ...

LOUISIANA:  WESTERN SETTLEMENTS

Héberts were among the earliest Acadians to find refuge in Louisiana.  The first of them to reach the colony--an orphan, and a brother and sister--came with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party from Halifax via Cap-Français, St. Dominique, in February 1765.  After a short respite in New Orleans, they followed the Broussards to the Attakapas District, where they helped create La Nouvelle-Acadie on the banks of Bayou Teche:

Pierre Hébert, described by the priest who recorded his burial as an orphan "of both father and mother," died at Attakapas in July 1765, probably an early victim of the epidemic that struck the Teche Acadians that summer and fall.  The priest did not record Pierre's age. 

Joseph-Pepin Hébert, age 17, and sister Louise, age 11, both orphans, survived the epidemic of 1765 and remained on the Teche, where Louise married Claude, son of Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, in c1772 and died at Attakapas in March 1788; she was only 35 years old.  Joseph-Pepin settled at the northern edge of the Attakapas District and created a large family line there:  

Descendants of Joseph-Pepin HÉBERT (c1748-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jean-Emmanuel)

Joseph-Pepin, son of Bénoni Hébert dit Manuel and Jeanne Savoie, born probably at Chignecto in c1748, came to Louisiana from Halifax in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party.  Spanish officials counted him in the "District of the Pointe" in April 1766.  He married Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Trahan, at Attakapas in April 1771.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their daughter married into the Broussard and Duhon families.  Joseph-Pepin and Madeleine had at least five sons, all of whom married.  Three of the lines became substantial ones.  The other two lines, except for their blood, probably did not survive. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, fils, born at Attakapas in March 1772, married cousin Catherine-Marguerite, called Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Trahan, at Attakapas in October 1790.  Marguerite had come to Louisiana in 1785 aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France.  Their son Frédéric, also called Séverin, was born at Attakapas in July 1792, a son, name unrecorded, born in September 1796, was buried 7 days after his birth, a victim of yellow jaundice, Éloi was born in November 1799, another son, name unrecorded, died 8 days after his birth in November 1801, and François le jeune, baptized at Attakapas, age 15 months, in February 1804, died at the home of Lucien Bourg on the Vermilion, age 2 1/2, in April 1805.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux and Meaux families.  Joseph, fils remarried to Élisabeth or Isabelle, daughter of fellow Acadian François Duhon of Ascension and widow of Jean-Marie Trahan, at Attakapas in July 1806.  Their son, name unrecorded, was buried five days after his birth in May 1807, and Joseph III was born in February 1820 but died at age 6 weeks the following April.  Their daughters married into the Broussard, Cormier, and Guidry families.  Joseph, fils died in Lafayette Parish "at age 56 years" in September 1827 and was buried "in the church cemetery"; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse the following month.

2a

Nemesie Olivier died at his parents' home on the Vermilion River in March 1817.  He was only 18 years old and probably did not marry.  

2b

4

François dit Pepin, born at Attakapas in April 1784, married Marie-Anne, called Pétit Anne, also called Lise, daughter of fellow Acadian Marin Mouton, probably at Attakapas in the early 1800s.  They settled at first on the lower Vermilion near her family and then moved to the upper Vermilion, at the northern edge of the old Attakapas District.  Their son Joseph Jean, also called Joseph François, was born at Attakapas in October 1803, François Arvillien or Aurelien, called Aurelien, in February 1806, a son, name unrecorded, died 3 days after his birth in October 1808, Sosthène was born in October 1812, Césaire in July 1814, Onésime, called Lésime, in December 1815, Olivier, also called Valéry, in January 1820, and Jean Baptiste Lessin, called Baptiste and perhaps also Lessaint, near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in August 1821.  All seven of their sons created families of their own and settled in Lafayette and Vermilion parishes. 

4a

Joseph, fils married cousin Éloise, daughter of French Creole Jean Montet, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1847; Éloise's mother, also, was a Bourg.  They settled near Youngsville. Their son Jean Baptiste was born in November 1850, and Placide in February 1858.  Their daughters married into the Breaux and Claveri families. 

Jean Baptiste married Félicie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Honoré Breaux of Terrebonne Parish, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in January 1870. 

Aurelien le jeune married Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadian François Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in May 1849.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Eugène was born in June 1850, Eraste in March 1860, Omer in January 1865, and Clémile in February 1870.  Their daughter married into the David family. 

Eugène married Ozea, daughter of fellow Acadian Gerasin Vincent, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in October 1869.  They settled probably on the lower Vermilion. 

Émile married Élisabeth, daughter of fellow Acadian Edmond Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in October 1852.  They settled near Youngsville.  Their son Edmond was born in September 1857.  Émile died in Lafayette Parish in April 1862; the Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Émile died "at age 30 yrs.," but he was 32; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in June.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

Euclide married Armeline, Armelina, or Emeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Clerville Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in April 1853.  Their daughter married into the Mouton family.  Euclide remarried to Sidalise, also called Zélie, another daughter of Edmond Boudreaux and widow of Euclide Michel Bourg, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in February 1856.  They settled near Youngsville. 

François married Celima or Celina, another daughter of Edmond Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in December 1855.  Their son Ernest was born near Youngsville in February 1865, and Ulysse in January 1867.

Étienne married cousin Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Bourg, at the Youngsville church, Lafayette Parish, in November 1860.  Étienne died in Lafayette Parish in June 1865; he was only 26 years old; his succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse in April 1867.  One wonders if his death was war-related and if his family line died with him.

A young Hébert who, amazingly, was a grandson of one of the family's Acadian progenitors, came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 probably not with the Broussards but on a later ship that reached New Orleans a few weeks after the Broussards landed.  He went at first to the Opelousas District, where Spanish officials counted him in April 1766.  In the late 1760s, he moved south to the Attakapas District, where he remarried:

~

Some of the Héberts who came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 and settled on the river did not remain there.  During the late colonial period, they or their descendants, including two brothers, moved to the western prairies and joined their cousins and, in one case, a brother and sister, already there:

Claire Robichaux, widow of Jean-Baptiste Hébert dit Manuel, came to the colony with four children and a grandson.  Claire did not remarry.  She moved to the Attakapas District in the 1770s.  Her children and grandson followed her there.  Her daughters married into the Hébert, Martin, Milhomme, Oubre, and Verret families.  

Descendants of Joseph dit Pepin HÉBERT (c1739-1790; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jean-Emmanuel)

Joseph dit Pepin, elder son of Jean-Baptiste Hébert dit Manuel and Claire Robichaux, born probably at Cobeguit in c1739, came to Louisiana from Halifax via St.-Domingue in 1765 with his wife and cousin Françoise Hébert, their infant son Louis, and 14-year-old orphan and kinsman, Jean-Charles Hébert.  They settled first on the river above New Orleans, where Spanish officials counted them at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in 1766 and 1769.  In the 1770s, Joseph dit Pepin followed his widowed mother and his siblings to the Attakapas District, where he and Françoise had more children.  They settled at Fausse Pointe on Bayou Teche, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish.  Their daughters married into the Guilbeau, Hébert, Labauve, Landry, and LeBlanc families.  Joseph dit Pepin died of a stroke probably at Fausse Pointe in October 1790; the Attakapas priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph dit Pepin was 57 years old when he died, but he was closer to 51.  Françoise died at her home at Fausse Pointe in July 1810; she was 66 years old.  Four of their five sons created families of their own and remained in the old Attakapas District, but only two of their family lines seem to have survived.

Oldest son Louis, born at Halifax in c1764, married Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Augustin Broussard, at Attakapas in October 1789.  They settled on the Vermilion River.  Their son Nicolas was born in March 1798 but died at age 5 months the following August, Alexandre le jeune was born in February 1800, Louis, fils, also called Jean Louis, in June 1802, Placide le jeune in December 1804 but died at age 5 in October 1810, and Marcellin was born in May 1807 but died at age 9 months in February 1808.  Their daughters married into the Beraud and Blanchet families.  Louis, père remarried to Marie Victoire, called Victoire, daughter of fellow Acadian François Guilbeau of La Pointe on the upper Teche and widow of Hippolyte Savoie, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in August 1817.  Their son Joseph was born in St. Martin Parish in March 1818, and François Philibert in February 1824 but died at age 2 1/2 in October 1826.  Their daughter married into the Mills family.  Louis, père's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in July 1828; he would have been in his mid-60s that year.

Alexandre le jeune, by his father's first wife, married cousin Clarisse, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Broussard, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1820.  They settled in Lafayette Parish.  Their son Aladin was born in August 1825, and Désiré was baptized at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, age 15 months, in February 1838.  Their daughters married Broussard cousins and perhaps into the Lanclos family as well. 

Aladin, called Halladin by the recording priest, may have married cousin Euphémie Hébert and settled in St. Landry Parish by the early 1850s. 

Désiré married another cousin Euphémie, daughter of another Alexandre Hébert le jeune, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in November 1862. 

1b

Louis, fils, by his father's first wife, married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Thibodeaux, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in April 1830.  Louis, fils may have died "at Plaquemine," perhaps Bayou Plaquemine Brûlé, in January 1867; the Opelousas priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Louis died "at age 64 yrs."; Louis, fils would have been that age; his succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in February.  Did his family line survive?

Nicolas Léo married cousin Jeanne Idea, daughter of French Creole Zenon Decuir, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in January 1845; Jeanne's mother was an Hébert.  Their son Evariste was born near New Iberia in December 1845 but died in January.  Nicolas Léo died probably in St. Mary Parish in January 1860; the Abbeville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Léo Nicolas F., as he called him, died "at age 42 yrs.," but Nicolas Léo would have been only 32; his succession record, which calls him N. Léo, was filed at the Franklin courthouse, St. Mary Parish, in March.  Did his family line die with him? 

Oscar married Nathalie, daughter of French Creole Joseph Gonsoulin, at the New Iberia church, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in December 1859.

André, baptized at the St.-Jacques church in February 1772, was 5 years old in May 1777 when he was counted at Attakapas with the rest of his family.  He may have died young.

5

Youngest son Placide, born at Attakapas in April 1788, married cousin Louise, called Lise, daughter of Athanase Hébert of Fausse Pointe, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1811.  They settled on the upper Vermilion.  Their son Louis le jeune was born in May 1815 but died at age 9 in October 1824.  Their daughters married into the Gonsoulin and Kerry families.  Placide died by February 1820, when wife Lise remarried at St. Martinville.  Except for its blood, his family line probably did not survive.

5b

Joseph Zéphirin married cousin Zéline, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Vincent, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in February 1855; Zéline's mother was an Hébert.  They settled probably on the lower Vermilion.  Their son Sosthène was born in August 1857.

Descendants of Pierre-Joseph HÉBERT (1785-1851?; Antoine, Jean, Jacques, Pierre dit le Jeune)

Pierre-Joseph, called Joseph, son of Pierre Hébert, fils and Charlotte Potier, born at St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, France, in March 1785, came to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785 while still an infant.  His parents took him to Attakapas, and he grew up at Carencro, where he married Augustine, called Justine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Guilbeau of Carencro, at the bride's home in April 1812.  They settled at Carencro.  Their daughters married into the Clavel and Hébert families.  A Pierre Hébert died near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in February 1851; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Pierre died "at age 72 yrs.," but Pierre Joseph would have been "only" 66.  The family line, except for its blood, probably did not survive. 

A child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died at birth in August 1820 and was buried at nearby Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish. 

~

Beginning in the late colonial and continuing well into the antebellum period, other Acadian Héberts who had immigrated from France, or their descendants, moved from the river or from Bayou Lafourche to the western prairies and added many new lines to that center of family settlement: 

Marie, perhaps Marie Rose, Hébert, widow of Pierre Jean Joseph Joachim Lebert of Beaubassin on upper Bayou Vermilion, died perhaps at Beaubassin in September 1844.  The Grand Coteau priest who recorded her burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a husband, said that Marie died "at age 67 yrs."  This would have been Marie Rose's age exactly. 

Descendants of Pierre-Joseph HÉBERT (1769-early 1800s; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc, Jean)

Pierre-Joseph, son of Joseph-Ignace Hébert and his first wife Anne Dugas, born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in March 1769, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  He followed them and the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Pierre-Joseph married Anne-Eléonore, called Eléonore and Nanette, daughter of fellow Acadian Benoît Comeaux, at St.-Jacques on the river in July 1788.  Anne-Eléonore had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships.  They lived in New Orleans in the early 1790s.  Later in the decade, they moved to the Opelousas District, where more of their children were born.  Their daughters married into the Bourque, Dantin, Labbé, Lacombe, and Richard families.  Pierre died by October 1808, when he was listed in a daughter's marriage record as deceased; he would have been in his 30s then.  One of his sons and a daughter "returned" to Bayou Lafourche.  His oldest son remained in St. Landry Parish.

Antoine III married Marie Suzanne, called Suzanne, daughter of Edward Courtele, Courtille, Courtin, Courtine, or Corty, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in September 1863, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1865.  Their son Antoine IV was born near Church Point, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in February 1867.

Louis-Ambroise HÉBERT (1783-1824; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc, Jean)

Louis-Ambroise, third son of Joseph-Ignace Hébert and his first wife Anne Dugas, born at Nantes, France, in November 1783, came to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785 with his parents and siblings.  He followed his family and the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  When he came of age, Louis-Ambroise crossed the Atchafalaya Basin and settled at the northern edge of the Attakapas District.  He died near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in August 1824; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Louis was "native of the city of Nantes in France," died "at age 42 years," and was "buried ... in the parish cemetery dans mon absence (during my absence);" Louis was only 40 years old.  Evidently he did not marry. 

Descendants of Joseph-Marie HÉBERT (1773-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques, Charles)

Joseph-Marie, elder son of Joseph Hébert and Jeanne De La Forestrie of Île St.-Jean, born at Plouër, France, near St.-Malo, in July 1773, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  The family went to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Joseph-Marie's father died soon after the family came to the colony, and his mother remarried to a fellow Acadian exile from France, Sébastien Benoit.  In the late 1790s, after he came of age, Joseph followed his stepfather to the western prairies and married cousin Marie-Barbe, daughter of French Canadian Jean-Baptiste Jeannot of Québec and St.-Jacques, at Opelousas in May 1799; Marie's mother was an Hébert.  They remained in the Opelousas District, now St. Landry Parish.  Their daughter married into the Frugé family.  Two of their sons settled in Lafayette Parish.  Did the family line, except for its blood, survive?

Paul married Marie Eugénie, called Eugénie, daughter of French Creole Antoine Labbé, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in November 1861, and sanctified the marriage at the Church Point church, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in May 1867; Eugénie's mother was a Comeaux

3

Valéry, perhaps also called Valière and Pierre, born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in December 1818, may have married fellow Acadian Azéma Guidry at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in October 1846.  Did the family line survive?

Descendants of Élie-Joseph HÉBERT (1802-1844; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Jean III, Pierre)

Élie-Joseph or Joseph-Élie, fourth son of Joseph-Yves Hébert and Marie-Victoire Thibodeaux of the St.-Malo area of France, born at Assumption in February 1802, married Azélie, 18-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Olivier Pitre, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1828.  They moved to St. Martin Parish by the early 1830s.  Their daughter married into the Desmaret family.  Élie died near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish, in August 1844; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Élie died "at age 40 yrs.," but he was 42; his succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse in November 1851.

Gilbert, second son of Alexis Hébert and Marguerite Chiasson, was born near St. Gabriel in August 1804.  When he came of age, he left the Baton Rouge area, where his parents had moved, crossed the Atchafalaya Basin to the Teche valley, and married Céleste Henriette or Henriette Céleste, also called Célise, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Labauve of Baton Rouge, at the St. Martinville church, St. Martin Parish, in April 1821.  They settled near New Iberia, then in St. Martin but now in Iberia Parish.  Their daughters married into the Comeaux, Hébert, LeBlanc, and Vuillemat families, one of them in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their oldest sons married sisters in West Baton Rouge Parish but settled on the Teche.

Other HÉBERTs on the Western Prairies

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Héberts in the western parishes with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at Grand Coteau and Abbeville were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of the Héberts listed below, especially those who lived in St. Landry Parish, were French Creoles belonging to the Hébert dit Milan family of Burgundy, not Acadian Héberts.  One also suspects that some of the Héberts who lived on the western prairies during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by members of the family: 

Céleste Hébert married Jean Baptiste dit Petit, son of Jean Broussard, at Attakapas in October 1793.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Céleste Hébert, wife or widow of Jean Baptiste Broussard, died in Lafayette Parish in June 1847; the Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Céleste died "at age 60 yrs.," but, judging by her marriage date, if this was her, she probably was in her 70s when she died.  Who was her father?  If she was an Acadian immigrant, when did she come to the colony? 

Rosalie Hébert married Anglo American Robert C. Trimble in a civil ceremony in St. Mary Parish in January 1831.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Two of their sons served in Company I of the 3rd (Harrison's) Regiment Louisiana Cavalry during the War Between the States. 

Louis Hébert married fellow Acadian Marie Eurasie Mire and settled in Lafayette Parish by the early 1830s.  Their daughter married into the Boudreaux family.  Louis's succession record was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in January 1851. 

Madeleine, daughter of Joseph Hébert, married Joseph Nunez of Galicia, Spain, widower of Marie Rose Richard, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in January 1834.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give Madeleine's mother's name, so one wonders which Joseph Hébert was her father. 

Adélaïde Hébert, widow of Jean Boullé, remarried to fellow Acadian Pierre Trahan in a civil ceremony in Lafayette Parish in December 1834.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Adélaïde remarried again--evidently her third marriage--to Simonet, son of fellow Acadian Raphaël Granger, in a civil ceremony in Lafayette Parish in June 1838.  Again, the parish clerk did not give her parents' names. 

Angeline, daughter of ____ Hébert and Phelonise Hébert, married François Rosémond, son of Acadian Joseph Boudreaux, at the Vermilionville church, Lafayette Parish, in March 1837.  The priest who recorded her marriage did not give Angeline's father's first name.  Angeline died the following December.  She was only 18 years old.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded her burial did not give any of her parents' names. 

Joseph, fils, son of Joseph Hébert, married Céleste Félice Peloquin, perhaps a widow and a French Canadian, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in October 1838.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  There were several families of French-Creole Héberts living in St. Landry Parish at the time, so one wonders if Joseph, fils and Joseph, père were Acadian. 

Valcin, also called Valsein, probably Valsin, Hébert married Acadian Azéma Guidry in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in September 1839.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Zéphirin was born near Grand Coteau in January 1846.  Was Valcin/Valsein Acadian? 

Joseph Hébert's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse, St. Landry Parish, in March 1840.  The parish clerk who recorded the succession did not give Joseph's parents' names, mention a wife, or give his age at the time of the filing. 

Joseph Hébert married Marie Victoire Miller in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in June 1840.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Was Joseph Acadian? 

Placide Hébert married Marie Doralise Duhon.  Their son Jean Alcide was born in Lafayette Parish in August 1840. 

Placide Hébert married Ameline Richard and settled in St. Landry Parish by the early 1840s. 

Fleurnoy, also called P. Flernau, Hébert married French Creole Émilie or Amelie Augustin Charles Fontenot in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in January 1841.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Joseph Flernau, perhaps Fleurnoy, was born near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, in November 1842.  Fleurnoy, called Flamoy by the recording clerk, remarried to Azélie Jeansonne, probably an Acadian, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in January 1846.  Again, the parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son François was born in St. Landry Parish in May 1852, Joseph in March 1860, and Georges Marcel near Ville Platte, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish, in April 1863.  Was Fleuneau/Fleurnoy/Fleurnau/Fleurnon/Flamoy/Floumont Acadian? 

Louis Hébert married Delise Hébert.  Their son Philemon was born in Lafayette Parish in October 1841. 

Jean Baptiste Hébert married German Creole Marie Madeleine Zeringue in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in December 1842, and sanctified the marriage at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in January.  Neither the parish clerk nor the priest who recorded the marriage gave the couple's parents' names. 

Clémence Hébert married Spanish Creole Louis Miguez.  Her succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in April 1845.  Who was her father? 

Joséphine A. Hébert married Anglo Creole Zenon Reed in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1847.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Was Joséphine Acadian?

Jacques Lovinsky Hébert died in Lafayette Parish in February 1855.  The Vermilionville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Jacques died "at age 26 yrs."  Did Jacques ever marry? 

Joseph Hébert married Acadian Marie Caroline Dugas in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in December 1855.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Their son Joseph Neuville was born near Grand Coteau in December 1856 but died at age 10 1/2 in April 1867. 

Cora Hébert married Thomas M. McCrory in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in September 1856.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Was Cora Acadian?

.

Hébert families living on the western prairies during the antebellum period cannot be linked by local church and civil records to other Héberts in the area.  One wonders if some of them were even Acadian: 

Descendants of Charles HÉBERT (c1797?-; ?)

Charles Hébert married Anglo Creole Émilie Hayes probably in Lafayette Parish in the late 1820s. 

1

Older son Jean Louis was born in Lafayette Parish in March 1827 but died at age 11 months in February 1828. 

2

Descendants of Joseph/Lasty HÉBERT, fils (?-; ?)

Joseph or Lasty Hébert, fils married Lucy, Luce, or Lucille Paula Augustine or Augustin in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in November 1838.  They were living in Calcasieu Parish by the mid-1850s.  Their daughter married into the Daigle (German Canadian, not Acadian) family.

Descendants of Joseph HÉBERT (?-; ?)

Joseph Hébert married Anglo Creole Mélanie Andrus in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in January 1845.  Their daughter married into the Broussard family.  When a daughter and then a son married at Abbeville, Vermilion Parish, in April 1866 and December 1867, the recording priest noted that Joseph and Mélanie were living in Jefferson County, Texas! 

Joseph Martin, born probably in St. Landry Parish in the late 1840s, married Émilie, daughter of Acadian Édouard Théophile Broussard, at the Abbeville church, Vermilion Parish, in December 1867; Joseph Martin's sister Azéma married Émilie's brother Éloi J. 

LOUISIANA:  RIVER SETTLEMENTS

Most of the Héberts who came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 did not go to the western prairies, at least not at first.  They reached the colony later in the year and went, instead, to Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river above New Orleans where 20 Acadians from Georgia had settled the year before.  So many Acadian exiles settled there, in fact, that the area soon became known as the Acadian Coast:

Claire Robichaud, age 52, widow of Jean-Baptiste Hébert dit Manuel, came to the colony with four children--Marie-Blanche, age unrecorded, Marie-Théotiste, age 15, Théotiste-Marie, age 12, and Mathurin, age 11--and 2-year-old grandson Jean-Louis Hébert.  Claire did not remarry.  She moved to the Attakapas District in the 1770s.  Her children and grandson followed her there. 

Joseph dit Pepin Hébert, age 26, Claire Robichaud's older son, and his wife and cousin Françoise Hébert, age 20, came with son Louis, age 1, and 14-year-old orphan Jean-Charles Hébert.  In the early 1770s, they followed Joseph dit Pepin's mother and siblings to the Attakapas District.  

Agnès Hébert dit Manuel, age 23, another daughter of Claire Robichaud and widow of ____ Bourgeois, may have come to the colony with her mother and unmarried siblings or with second husband Joseph Richard and two children.  They remained on the river, where Agnès may have died in the early 1770s, before her family moved on to the Attakapas District. 

François Hébert, age 30, still a bachelor, came with brothers Joseph, also age 30 and probably a widower, and Pierre, age 28, also still a bachelor.  They remained on the river and created a new center of family settlement on what was being called the Acadian Coast.  

Descendants of François HÉBERT (c1735-1798; Antoine, Jean, Joseph)

François, eldest son of Joseph Hébert and Anne-Marie Poirier, born probably at Chignecto in c1735, escaped the roundup at Chignecto in 1755 and found refuge on the Gulf of St. Lawrence shore.  During the early 1760s, he probably spent time as a prisoner of war in one of the Nova Scotia compounds.  Still a bachelor, he came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 with his younger brothers and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where, in the late 1760s, he married a woman whose name has been lost to history.  François remarried to Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Claude Trahan, at St.-Jacques in January 1771.  François remarried again--his third marriage--to Osite, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Landry and widow of Pierre Chiasson, at St.-Jacques in November 1794.  All of his children were from his second wife.  François died at St.-Jacques in November 1798; the priest who recorded his burial said that François was 70 years old when he died, but he was closer to 63.  His older son and his only grandson who married settled in what became St. James Parish, but two of his great grandsons moved upriver to Iberville Parish. 

1

Older son Charles, by his father's second wife, baptized at St.-Jacques in February 1772, married cousin Marguerite, daughter of Michel Poirier, at St.-Jacques in May 1792.  Their son Charles-Joseph, called Joseph le jeune was born at St.-Jacques in March 1794, Jean-Baptiste in March 1796 but died at age 1 1/2 in August 1797, and Étienne was born in December 1801.  Their daughters married into the Gaudin family.  Charles died at St.-Jacques in May 1803; the priest who recorded his burial said that Charles was 45 years old when he died, but he was only 31.

1a

Joseph le jeune married Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Gaudet, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in June 1821.  Their son Joseph Alphée or Elphége, called Elphége, was born in St. James Parish in April 1822, Michel Théophile, called Théophile, near Convent in September 1827, Charles Euphémon, called Euphémon and perhaps Femo, in November 1832, Paulin Oscar in October 1837 but died at age 4 in October 1841, and a son, name unrecorded, died at age 11 months in June 1840.  Their daughter married into the Reine family.  Joseph may have died near Convent in October 1842; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 45 yrs.," but this Joseph would have been 48.  

Elphége married Aglae, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Mire, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in July 1843.  They lived in Iberville Parish before returning to the Convent area.  Their son Michel Gustave was born in Iberville Parish in September 1848, and Charles Marius near Convent in September 1858.  Elphége may have died in December 1862; the Convent priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Elphége died at "age 35 years"; Joseph Elphége would have been 40.  One wonders if his death was war-related. 

Théophile married Emma, daughter of French Creole Evariste Blouin, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in June 1847; Emma's mother was an Arceneaux.  They settled near the boundary between Iberville and Ascension parishes.  Their son Michel Clément was born in January 1849.  Strangely, a church record insists that Théophile Hébert died in Ascension Parish in October 1851 at "age 24 years"; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, but Michel Théophile would have been age 24 at the time of the burial.   However, another church record, which includes the parents' names, shows that this Théophile remarried to Élisabeth, also called Eliza, daughter of French Creole Edmond Blouin, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in January 1858; Élisabeth's mother was a Richard; one wonders how Théophile's second wife was kin to his first wife.  Théophile and Élisabeth's son Jean Florian was born near Convent in August 1859, Louis Dreux in July 1861, and Joseph Alfred in September 1864 but died the following February. 

Femo, perhaps Euphémon, may have married cousin Delphine Hébert.  Their son Jean Baptiste Alfred was born near Convent, St. James Parish, in October 1866.

1b

Étienne died near Convent, St. James Parish, in December 1823.  He was only 22 years old and probably did not marry. 

2

Younger son Joseph, by his father's second wife, baptized at St.-Jacques in March 1776, may have died young.  

Descendants of Joseph HÉBERT (c1735-?; Antoine, Jean, Joseph)

Joseph, second son of Joseph Hébert and Anne-Marie Poirier, born probably at Chignecto in c1735, came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 with his brothers and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, probably as a widower.  His first wife's name has been lost to history.  He remarried to fellow Acadian Anne Préjean, widow of Joseph Savoie, at Cabanocé, in December 1767.  All of his children were from his second wife.   One of his two sons settled in what became St. James Parish. 

1

Older son Paul, by his father's second wife, born at St.-Jacques in c1769, married Anastasie, also called Théotiste, daughter of fellow Acadian Marin Landry, at St.-Jacques in June 1790.  Their son Paul, fils was born at St.-Jacques in May 1800, Éloi in August 1803, a son, name and age unrecorded, died at St.-Jacques in September 1805, Adolphe was born in November 1806, and Evariste in January 1809 but died at age 6 in December 1815.  Their daughters married into the Gaudin and Lalande families.  Paul, père remarried to German Creole Charlotte Trosclair probably in St. James Parish in c1810.  Their son Paul le jeune was born in St. James Parish in August 1811.  Paul, père may have died in St. James Parish in October 1814, in his late 40s, or he may have been the Paul Hébert who died in St. James Parish in May 1825, age 55.  

1a

Paul, fils died in St. James Parish in July 1819.  He was only 19 years old and probably did not marry. 

1b

Éloi married Marie Doralise, called Doralise, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Mire, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in February 1827.  Their son Éloi, fils was born in St. James Parish in February 1829, Paul Orestile in August 1831, Jean Baptiste Camille, called Camille, near Convent, St. James Parish, in September 1834, and Joseph Édouard Clément in December 1840.  Their daughter married a Mire cousin.  Éloi, père died "at his home" in St. James Parish in September 1846; the St. James priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Éloy died at "age 40 yrs.," but he was 43.  One of his sons died "at his mother's, widow Éloy Eber," in July 1848; the St. James priest who recorded the burial did not give the son's name or age. 

Éloi, fils married Célesie Aurelia, called Aurelia, daughter of French Creole Ursin LeBoeuf of Ascension Parish, at the St. James church, St. James Parish, in February 1857; Célesie's mother was a Babin.  Their son Paul Éloi was born in St. James Parish in February 1859. 

Camille married Cécile, daughter of French Creole Lucien Roussel, at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in February 1858; Cécile's mother was a Theriot.  Their son Lucien Camille was born in St. James Parish in January 1860, and Joseph Émile near Convent in March 1863. 

2

Younger son Jean-Baptiste, by his father's second wife, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in October 1770, may have died young.  

Descendants of Pierre HÉBERT (c1737-?; Antoine, Jean, Joseph)

Pierre, youngest son of Joseph Hébert and Anne-Marie Poirier, born probably at Chignecto in c1737, came to Louisiana from Halifax in 1765 with his brothers and settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques, where he married Anne-Marie, called Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Bergeron of Rivière St.-Jean, in July 1767.  In September 1769, they lived on the left, or east, bank of the river at Cabanocé.  By March 1777, they had moved upriver to St.-Gabriel.  Their daughter married into the Migott family.  None of Pierre's sons created families of their own, so, except for its blood, this line of the family probably did not survive.  

1

Oldest son François le jeune, born probably at Cabanocé in c1768, probably died young.

2

A son, name unrecorded, born at either St.-Jacques or St.-Gabriel in c1773, probably died young. 

3

Another son, name unrecorded, born probably at St.-Gabriel in 1776, probably died young.  

~

More Acadians--the first contingent of exiles from Maryland to reach Louisiana--settled at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in 1766.  Two Héberts, a widow and a wife, were among them:

Osite Hébert, age 35, second wife and widow of Alexandre Melanson, came to the colony in September 1766 with six children, ages 17 to infant.  Osite remarried to Augustin, son of fellow Acadian Pierre Boudreaux, at St.-Jacques in January 1771.  She died in St. James Parish in September 1805, age 75, a widow again. 

Geneviève Hébert, age 40, came to New Orleans in October 1766 with husband, Étienne-Michel David of Louisbourg, Île Royale, age 42, and eight children, ages 22 to 1.  They, too, had suffered exile in Maryland, but they did not come to Louisiana with the other Acadians who sailed to the colony that year; this family, in fact, had the wherewithal to take a separate vessel and pay their own passage.  They settled at first in New Orleans, where Étienne plied his trade as a skilled blacksmith, but by the late 1770s they had moved to St.-Jacques, where most of their children remained.  

~

Nine Hébert families--one headed by a widow and two by widowers, and two Hébert wives, 35 members of the family in all--came to Louisiana from Maryland in July 1767, one of the largest single Acadian family groups to reach the colony.  These were Héberts from the Minas Basin whom the British had deported to that British colony in the fall of 1755.  They had endured life in Maryland for a dozen years before boarding a ship at Baltimore in April 1767; they reached New Orleans via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, three months later.  Like other 1767 arrivals, they would have preferred to join their fellow Acadians at Cabanocé, where a contingent of Maryland Acadians had gone in late 1766, but Spanish governor Ulloa insisted that they settle in a new Acadian community, St.-Gabriel d'Iberville, on the river above Cabanocé.  Communication between St.-Gabriel and Cabanocé was easy via the river, so these latest Maryland arrivals acquiesced into going to the new settlement. 

François Hébert, père, age 57, a widower, brought with him six unmarried children--Jean-Baptiste dit Petit-Jean, age 25, Étienne, age 23, Pierre-Caieton, age 20, Joseph, age 18, Charles, age 16, and Madeleine, age 14.

Alexandre Hébert, age 31, François's oldest son, came with wife Anne Landry, age 27.  They brought no children with them and had none in Louisiana.  Alexandre remarried to Marie-Jeanne, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Thibodeaux, at St.-Gabriel in January 1789.  They did not remain on the river. 

François Hébert, fils, age 29, François's second son, came with wife Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc, age 25, and two sons--Charles, age 4, and Jean-Baptiste, age 3.  They had more children, including sons, in Louisiana and remained on the river. 

Amand Hébert, age 27, François's third son, came with wife Marie-Claire Landry, age 22.  They brought no children with them but had many in Louisiana.  They also remained on the river. 

Paul Hébert, age 55, came with wife Marguerite-Josèphe Melanson, age 49, seven children--Anne-Marie, age 22, Ignace le jeune, age 20, Marie, age 18, Jean-Baptiste, age 17, Amand, age 13, Marguerite, age 7, Paul, fils, age 3--and orphan Marie Blanchard, age 13.  Their daughters married into the Bruneteau, Dupuis, Guidry, and Moreno families; one of them, Marie, married a young Spanish officer, Agústín Moreno, only two months after reaching the colony.  Paul died at St.-Gabriel in July 1805; he was 93 years old.  Daughter Marguerite may not have married and may have died in Assumption Parish, on upper Bayou Lafourche, in December 1846, age 86.  Paul's sons remained on the river, and two of his great-grandsons became important men:  Paul Octave Hébert of Iberville Parish served as governor of Louisiana during the early 1850s, and, along with first cousin Louis Hébert, also of Iberville Parish, rose to the rank of brigadier general during the War Between the States.  

Pierre-Paul Hébert, age 29, Paul's oldest son, came with wife Marguerite LeBlanc, age 23, and three children--Charles, age 5, Marianne, age 3, and infant Marguerite.  They remained on the river. 

Joseph Hébert, age 27, Paul's second son, came with wife Anne Landry, age 27, and their infant daughter Anne.  They remained on the river. 

Ignace Hébert, age 43, Paul's younger brother and a widower, came with two children--Jean-Baptiste, age 14, and Marie, age 5.  Ignace remarried to Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Babin and widow of Joseph Babin, at St.-Gabriel in January 1773, but had no more children by her.  Ignace died at St.-Gabriel in November 1783, a few days short of his 59th birthday.  

Geneviève Babin, age 43, widow of Amand Hébert, who died on the voyage from Baltimore to New Orleans, brought four children with her--Geneviève, age 22, Marie-Josèphe, age 18, Charles, age 15, and Marguerite, age 6.  Her daughters married into the André or Andro, Derouen, Foret, Jeannot, and Landry families, and two of them settled on the western prairies.  Her son may not have married.    

Catherine Hébert, age 39, came with husband Pierre Allain, age 44, and five children, ages 16 to infancy. 

Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, Hébert, age 24, came with husband Athanase Landry, age 25.  Their children were born in Louisiana.  Marie-Madeleine died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1815, in her early 70s. 

The 1767 arrivals from Maryland created many new family lines along the expanding Acadian Coast:

Descendants of Alexandre HÉBERT (1735-1810s?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques)

Alexandre, elder son of François Hébert, père and Marie-Josèphe Melanson, born at Grand-Pré in December 1735, was exiled to Maryland in 1755.  Colonial officials counted him with his family at Georgetown or Frederick, on Maryland's upper Eastern Shore, in July 1763.  Alexandre married fellow Acadian Anne Landry in Maryland, came to Louisiana in 1767, and settled at St.-Gabriel.  Anne seems to have given him no children.  In January 1789, when he was 53 years old, Alexandre remarried to Marie-Jeanne, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Thibodeaux, at St.-Gabriel and moved to the Attakapas District, where his children were born.  Alexandre then moved to Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche probably in the late 1790s, where he died by 1814.  One of his daughters remained in the Attakapas District and married into the Pomier family.  His line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him. 

Jean-Baptiste, born at Attakapas in October 1789, died at Assumption in June 1801.  He was only 11 years old and his father's only son. 

Descendants of François HÉBERT, fils (c1738-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques)

François, fils, second son of François Hébert, père and Marie-Josèphe Melanson, born at Grand-Pré in June 1738, came to Louisiana in 1767 with his wife Marie-Josèphe LeBlanc, whom he had married in Maryland in c1762.  With them were two sons, Charles and Jean-Baptiste.  They had more children at St.-Gabriel.  Their daughter married into the Landry and Simoneaux families.  François, fils's sons settled in the Manchac/Baton Rouge area, north of St.-Gabriel, and in West Baton Rouge Parish, and a grandson was among the few Acadians who settled in Pointe Coupee Parish. 

1

Oldest son Charles, born in Maryland in c1763, evidently moved to the Attakapas District when he came of age and married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand-Paul Gautreaux, at Attakapas in December 1787.  The couple returned to the river and settled in the St.-Gabriel/Baton Rouge area.  Their son Jérôme was born in October 1790, Élias or Élie in May 1794, Hippolyte in March 1796, Victor le jeune, a twin, in April 1805, and Charles, fils in April 1807.  Their daughters married into the Bedate, Dupuy, Landry, LeBlanc, and Templet families.  One of his younger sons settled in Pointe Coupee Parish. 

1a

Jérôme married Marie, daughter of Anglo American William Gibson, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1815.  Their son Herman was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1816, Maximilien in November 1817, Valentin Trasimond, called Trasimond, near Baton Rouge in November 1820, Jean near St. Gabriel in January 1822, Fergus near Baton Rouge in May 1824, Jean Baptiste Valcourt in January 1829, and Jérôme, fils was baptized at the Baton Rouge church, age 10 months, in March 1832.   They also had a son named Joseph Camille, called Camille.  Jérôme, père died near Baton Rouge in June 1831; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jérôme was "ca. 38 yrs." when he died; he was 40. 

Camille married Amelise, Analise, Analize, or Ananise, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Labauve, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1842.  They remained in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Joseph Sosthène was born in September 1845, and Jean Baptiste Maximilien in May 1861. 

Trasimond married first cousin Amelia or Emelia, daughter of fellow Acadian Magloire Dupuy, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1843; Amelia's mother was Trasimond's paternal aunt, Eugènie Hébert.  Trasimond remarried to Nathalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Élien Babin, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1852, and remarried again--his third marriage, to Domitille, another daughter of Joseph Élien Babin and widow of William Allain, at the Brusly church in July 1856; they had to secure a dispensation for first degree of affinity in order to marry.

1b

Élie married Gertrude, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Babin, by the early 1820s and settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Joseph was born in March 1824, Félix in June 1825, Rosémond Ulysses in December 1830, Siméon in June 1833, Jules Élie in December 1838 but died at age 13 in June 1852, and Camille Valaise was born near Brusly in December 1841.  They also had sons named Apollinaire, Théodore, and Théodule.  Their daughters married into the Bourg and Hébert families.  Élie died in West Baton Rouge Parish in June 1855; the Brusly priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Élie died at "age 61 years," so this probably was him. 

Félix married Marie Virginie or Virginia, daughter of fellow Acadian Vital Comeaux, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1848.  Their son Joseph Amédée was born near Brusly in December 1849, and Pierre Élie in April 1850[sic]. 

Joseph married cousin Victorine, daughter of fellow Acadian Magloire Dupuy, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1850; Victorine's mother was an Hébert.  Joseph died near Brusly in December 1852; he was only 28 years old. 

Apollinaire married Stephanie, daughter of Auguste Collier, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1854; Stephanie's mother was an Arbour.  Apollinaire may have died in February 1864; the Brusly priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give the age of the deceased.  One wonders if Apollinaire's death was war-related.  Did he father any sons?  Did his family line survive? 

Siméon died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1857.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Siméon died at "age 24 years."  Did he marry? 

Théodore married Odile, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Lejeune and widow of Édouard Bourg, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1866.

Théodule married first cousin Adolphine, daughter of fellow Acadian Adolphe Dupuy and widow of Prudent Crochet, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in October 1867; Adolphine's mother, also, was a Babin; Théodule and Adolphine had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.

1c

Hippolyte married Henriette, daughter of French Creole Paul Serrette and widow of Magloire Dupuis, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1822.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Victorin Hippolyte, called Hippolyte, was born in December 1825.  Hippolyte, père remarried to Célestine or Céleste, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Doiron, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1835.  They remained in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Thomas Célestin was born in May 1841, Alcide Edmond in September 1845, Joseph Marcelle in March 1848, Armand Ovide in August 1849, and Martial Aristide in July 1853.  They also had a son named Numa.  Their daughters married into the Derichebourg, Dupuis, Frechou, Labat, Ledieu, Petitjean, and Tuillier families. 

Victorin Hippolyte, by his father's first wife, married Apolline Trasille, Trosile, or Trosine, daughter of fellow Acadian Placide Babin, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1847.  Their son Louis Gilbert was born near Brusly in December 1847, Victorin Arnaud in September 1855, Placide Adrien in June 1857 but died the following August, and Samuel Guénard was born in October 1858.

Numa, by his father's second wife, married Marie Léontine, daughter of fellow Acadian Élie Hyacinthe Lejeune, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in March 1867.  Their son Joseph Henry was born near Brusly in February 1868. 

1d

Victor le jeune married cousin Marie Odile, called Odile, daughter of Nicolas Chapoton, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1831; Marie's mother was an Hébert; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of relationship in order to marry.  They lived in St. James Parish before moving upriver to Pointe Coupee Parish, where few other Acadians settled.  Their son Charles le jeune was born near Convent in November 1837.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux, Champagne, and Vignes families, and perhaps into the Balsly family as well, one in St. James and three in Pointe Coupee.  Daughter Marie Zulma, called Zulma, "widow of Adolphe Vignes," whom she married in February 1854 and with whom she had at least four children, the last one born in October 1861, gave birth to son Joseph Moran Édouard in October 1866; the Pointe Coupee priest who baptized the boy the following February called him an Hébert; one wonders when Adolphe Vignes died, and who was Joseph's biological father.  Victor le jeune died in Pointe Coupee Parish in February 1868; the Pointe Coupee priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parent's names or even mention a wife, said that Victor died at "age 63 years, 10 months"; Victor le jeune would have been 62 years, 10 months, old. 

Charles le jeune, called Charles D. in Confederate records, likely served as a sergeant in Company A of the Pointe Coupee Battalion Louisiana Artillery during the War of 1861.  If this was him, he enlisted at Baton Rouge in May 1861 and followed the battery to Columbus, Kentucky.  After fighting in the Battle of Belmont, Missouri, in November, the battery served as heavy artillery at Island No. 10, where it repulsed a Federal attack in early March 1862.  After service at Fort Pillow, Tennessee, the battery retreated with rest of the army to northwestern Mississippi, where it saw more action at Coffeeville and Fort Pemberton in late 1862 and early 1863.  Next, the battery fought at Port Hudson, Louisiana, where Charles was captured in late March.  He was soon paroled, exchanged, and returned to his unit.  He remained with the battalion for the rest of the war, serving with it in Mississippi and north Georgia, where it was part of the Atlanta Campaign.  Most of the men in the battalion were captured at Nashville, Tennessee, in December 1864, but sergeant Hébert was not one of them.  He eluded the Federals and surrendered with General Taylor's army at Meridian Mississippi, in May 1865.  He married Virginie Eva, called Eva, daughter of J. B. Alcide Bondy, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in October 1866.

2

Jean-Baptiste, born in Maryland in c1764, married cousin Marie Anne, called Anne, daughter of Pierre-Paul Hébert, at St.-Gabriel in May 1785.  Their son Victor was born near St.-Gabriel in February 1788, Jean-Baptiste, fils in May 1790, Julien in c1794 but died at age 11 near Baton Rouge in August 1805, Simon was born near St.-Gabriel in February 1796, and Paul near Baton Rouge in January 1800.  Their daughters married into the Bernard du Montier (French Creole, not Acadian), Hébert, Kirkland, Landry, and Williams families.  Jean Baptiste, père remarried to Marie Louise Eméranthe, called Méranthe, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Landry, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1815; he was 51 years old at the time of the wedding.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Jean Baptiste Adolphe, called Jean Adolphe and Adolphe, was born in January 1819, François Enault, perhaps Enos, in January 1821, Joseph Achille in Ascension Parish in March 1823, Henri Ernest, called Ernest, in West Baton Rouge Parish in June 1825, and Louis Pierre Alfred, called Louis Alfred and Alfred, in May 1829.  Their daughters married into the Courtade and Landry families.  Jean Baptiste's oldest son served in the Louisiana State Senate.  A grandson served as sheriff of West Baton Rouge Parish. 

2a

Victor, by his father's first wife, married Marie Rose daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Daigre, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1808.  They settled in what became West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Joseph Valmont, called Valmont, was born in February 1809, Marcellin Alexandre in April 1811, Adonis, Dionis, or Denis in March 1814, Victor, fils in February 1822, and Jules in July 1824.  Their daughters married into the Lecoq and Woods families.  Victor served in the Louisiana State Senate.  His oldest son Valmont served as sheriff of West Baton Rouge Parish. 

Joseph Valmont, while serving as sheriff of West Baton Rouge Parish, married Marguerite Adélaïde, called Adélaïde, daughter of François Ferbose, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in April 1832; Adélaïde's mother was a Trahan.  Their son Joseph Alcide was born in West Baton Rouge Parish in March 1833, and François Édouard, perhaps called Édouard, in October 1834. Valmont remarried to Geneviève Collin and remained in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

François Édouard, by his father's first wife, may have died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1850.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names, said that Édouard died at "age 16 yrs." 

Adonis married Marie Constance, called Constance, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Braud and widow of Célestin Allain, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1839.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their son Jules Adonis was born in August 1839, Joseph Victor near Brusly in April 1843, and Anatole in January 1846.

Jules Adonis, called Jules A. by the recording priest, married Émilie Kesia, called Kesia, daughter of Anglo American James Barker, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in February 1860.  Their son Edwin Adonis was born near Plaquemine in May 1861, and Joseph Auguste in February 1866. 

Anatole married Marie Aloysia, called Aloysia, daughter of fellow Acadian Sylvère LeBlanc, at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in May 1869.  Their son George Edgar was born near Plaquemine in February 1870. 

Jules may have married Anglo American Mary Eliza Elliot during the early 1850s and settled near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, on the west side of the river.  Mary Eliza must have been a Protestant when they married; in February 1854, at the age of 22, she was baptized a Roman Catholic at the Plaquemine church.

2b

Ignace, third son of Paul Hébert, père and Marguerite-Josèphe Melanson, born at Grand-Pré in September 1747, came to Louisiana from Maryland in 1767 with his parents and siblings.  He married Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Bonaventure Foret, at St.-Gabriel in November 1781.  Ignace died at St.-Gabriel in December 1790; he was only 43 years old.  His three sons do not seem to have created families of their own, so this line of the family may not have survived in the Bayou State.

F. Edward, by his father's second wife, married Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Labauve, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1865.  Their son François Édouard was born near Brusly in July 1869.

2

Jean-Baptiste, fils, also called Pierre-Jean-Baptiste, born near St.-Gabriel in October 1778, married cousin Marie Léocade, called Léocade, daughter of Amand Hébert, at St.-Gabriel in July 1801.  Their daughters married into the Geoffrey, Heith, and Laferry families.  Jean Baptiste, fils died near Baton Rouge in December 1805; he was only 27 years old.  He and his wife seem to have had no sons, so this line of the family, except for its blood, probably died with him.

Louis, the second of the name, was tutored by live-in teachers on his father's plantation before attending Jefferson College at Convent, St. James Parish, with his older double first cousin, Paul Octave.  Louis attended Jefferson College from 1836 to 1840 and was among the first five graduates.  In June 1841, he arrived at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, graduated in June 1845, third in his class, and was commissioned brevet second lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers.  He reported for duty at New Orleans in the fall of 1845 and served at Fort Livingston, Barataria Bay, until, compelled by his father's poor health, he resigned his commission in February 1846 to attend to his family's business.  He married Malvina, daughter of French Creole Pierre Mizaël Lambremont, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in March 1848; Malvina's mother was a Braud; Malvina's father, who died before the wedding, had, like Louis's father, served in the state legislature.  Louis and Malvina's son Ignace Louis was born in Iberville Parish in March 1849, Burton Lambremont in September 1850, and Ellis L., probably Lambremont, in December 1857.  Louis fathered no daughters.  He was elected to the Louisiana state Senate in November 1853 and represented the parishes of Iberville and West Baton Rouge; like his father, Louis was a Democrat.  In 1855, Louis's first cousin, Governor Paul Octave Hébert, appointed him as chief engineer of Louisiana; reappointed by his cousin's successors, Louis was compelled to move his family to Baton Rouge.  In 1859, he was elected to the new state Board of Public Works, but the position was abolished by the state legislature soon after it was created.  After a lengthy illness, Malvina died at the family plantation in August 1860 and was buried at nearby St. Raphaël Cemetery in Iberville Parish; Louis never remarried.  After his wife's death, Louis returned to Baton Rouge and was still living there on the eve of the War of 1861.  Though opposed to secession (he had voted for Stephen A. Douglas in November 1860), Louis, still a colonel of state militia for East Baton Rouge Parish, offered his services to his native state.  Governor Thomas Overton Moore placed him in command of the Louisiana troops who bloodlessly seized the Baton Rouge arsenal from Federal forces in early January 1861.  In May, Louis was elected colonel of the 3rd Regiment Louisiana Infantry, which he helped to raise.  He was captured at Pea Ridge, Arkansas, in March 1862.  Exchanged two months later, he was promoted to brigadier general and commanded a brigade in Price's army in the western theatre of operations.  (Louis's brother-in-law, Walter H. Stevens of New York, West Point Class of 1848 and husband of his sister Ernestine, also served as a brigadier general in the Confederate army.)  Later in the war, Louis commanded the heavy artillery at Fort Fisher, near Wilmington, North Carolina.  After the war, he lived with his sons at Plaisance plantation in Iberville Parish until a New Orleans bank foreclosed on the property.  Now homeless, he moved his small family to nearby Plaquemine, where he worked as sub-editor of the Iberville South newspaper, until it was sold, and then worked as a private teacher on plantations near Bayou Goula and Bayou Jacobs.  His son Burton Lambremont having married in St. Martin Parish in 1870, Louis joined him on the upper Teche in 1876.  Louis again worked as a private teacher, this time on the plantations of the Widow Valéry Huval and of François LeBlanc, and at the private schools of former state lieutenant governor Charles Homere Mouton  and of Vincent Barras in St. Martinville.  Louis taught at a new public school in Iberville Parish but returned to St. Martinville after the school closed.  In subsequent years, he taught also at Plaquemine, Bayou Goula, and New Orleans, but again returned to St. Martinville, where he continued teaching into his 70s.  Louis died in St. Martin Parish in January 1901; he was 80 years old.  He was buried along the bayou near Breaux Bridge.  His remains, or what were believed to be his remains, were reburied by the local Sons of Confederate Veterans in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery at nearby Cecilia in October 2002. 

Burton Lambremont, called Bruton Louis by the recording priest, married Laure, daughter of fellow Acadian Louis Balthazar Martin, at the Breaux Bridge church, St. Martin Parish, in June 1870. 

Ignace Louis, following a long illness and, according to his father, "when he had acquired an honorable position," died at New Orleans in April 1873.  Ignace L., as he was called, was only 24 years old.  He evidently did not marry. 

4c

During the War of 1861, Gustave Sébastien served as surgeon in three Louisiana units that fought in the western theatre of operations--the 3rd Regiment Louisiana Infantry, which older brother Louis commanded; the 8th Battalion Heavy Artillery; and the 1st Regiment Heavy Artillery, which his first cousin Paul Octave Hébert commanded.

5

Youngest son Paul le jeune, born near St.-Gabriel in February 1796, married Marie Eugénie, called Eugénie, daughter of Scots American Ignace Hamilton, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in November 1817; Eugenie's mother was a Bush.  They settled near Bayou Goula, Iberville Parish, on the west bank of the river.  Their son Paul Octave was born in December 1818, Ignace in June 1821, Zéphirin in December 1826, Adrien dit Amand in March 1835, and Gustave Adolphe in June 1837 but died at age 1 1/2 in September 1838.  Their daughters married into the Boissac, Hall, Kirk, LeBlanc, Moore, and Sewall or Sewell families.  Paul le jeune remarried to Lavinia Jane, daughter of Anglo American Joseph Devince Hamilton, at the St. Gabriel church in January 1845; Lavinia Jane was a cousin of Paul's first wife, so they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of affinity in order to marry; Paul le jeune was just shy of 49 years old at the time of the wedding.  Their son Joseph Amand was born probably near Bayou Goula in August 1846, and Charles Anay Auguste in July 1850 but died at age 2 in August 1852.  Paul le jeune died in Iberville Parish in May 1852; he was 56 years old. 

5a

Paul Octave, by his father's first wife, graduated first in his class at Jefferson College at Convent, St. James Parish, in 1836 at age 18.  He also was first in his class at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, in 1840; he was 22 years old when he graduated.  He married Cora Laetitia Wills, daughter of Anglo American Thomas C. Vaughn, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1842 while on active duty with the United States Army Corps of Engineers.  Their son Thomas Paul was born in July 1844 and Robert Octave in October 1846.  Paul Octave fought in the Mexican War in 1846-47 and was brevetted colonel for gallantry at Molino del Rey in the campaign against Mexico City.  After he resigned his commission, Paul Octave was elected governor of Louisiana in 1851, the youngest ever elected to that office up to that time (he was only 33 years old), and served from January 1852 until January 1856.  From January to March 1861, he served on Louisiana Governor Thomas O. Moore's five-man state Military Board.  During the War of 1861, Paul Octave served as colonel of the 1st Regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery and, like his double first cousin Louis, rose to the rank of brigadier general.  Later in the war, Paul Octave commanded the Department of Texas, with headquarters at Galveston, and the Subdistrict of North Louisiana.  After the war, he was active in Democratic Party politics.  He died of cancer in New Orleans in August 1880, age 61, and was buried at St. Raphaël Cemetery, near Bayou Goula, close to his birthplace.

5b

Ignace, by his father's first wife, married first cousin Marie Malvina, daughter of his uncle Valéry Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in March 1845.  Ignace died in Iberville Parish in April 1849; he was only 28 years old.  Did he father any sons?

5c

Adrien dit Amand, by his father's first wife, married Marie Lodoiska, called Lodoiska, daughter of French Creole René Bougère of New Orleans, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in November 1853.

Descendants of Paul HÉBERT, fils (c1763-1790s; Étienne, Emmanuel, Guillaume)

Paul, fils, sixth and youngest son of Paul Hébert, père and Marguerite-Josèphe Melanson of Minas, born in Maryland in c1763, came to Louisiana in 1767 with his parents and siblings.  He married Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Breau, at Ascension, on the river below St.-Gabriel, in December 1782 and settled at St.-Gabriel.  Their daughters married into the Daigre and Landry families.  Paul died by January 1802, when he was recorded as deceased in a daughter's marriage record; he would have been in his late 30s that year.  

1

Oldest son Éloi or Élie died near St.-Gabriel, age 8 months, in June 1787. 

2

Joseph-Éloi or -Élie, called Éloi, born near St.-Gabriel in November 1790, married cousin Angélique or Angèle, daughter of Joseph Hébert, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1814.  Their son Valentin was born near St. Gabriel in December 1817, Éloi, fils in January 1821, and a child, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died at age 18 months in November 1824.  Their daughters married into the Blanchard, Gallaugher and Melançon families.  Éloi, père died near St. Gabriel in April 1838; he was only 47 years old. 

2a

Valentin married Madeleine Adeline, daughter of fellow Acadian Désiré LeBlanc, at the bride's home in Ascension Parish in February 1840; the marriage was recorded by the Donaldsonville priest.  Their son Faustin was born in Ascension Parish in February 1841 but died the following June, Valentin, fils was born in May 1842, Théodore in January 1845, Joseph Octave in July 1848, and Hubert Gustave, called Gustave, in May 1855 but died at age 11 months in April 1856.  Valentin, père may have died in Ascension Parish in October 1855; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Valentin died at "age 30 years"; this Valentin would have been 37. 

2b

Éloi, fils married Marie Coralie, called Coralie, daughter of fellow Acadian Laurent Daigre, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1849.  Their son Octave was born in Iberville Parish in October 1849, and Gustave in April 1853. 

2c

During the War of 1861, Valentin, fils may have served in the famous Donaldsonville Artillery.  If this was him, he enlisted at Donaldsonville in September 1861, age 19.  He followed his unit to Virginia and was reported present through the early summer of 1862 and would have seen action on the Virginia Peninsula at Yorktown and Williamsburg, in the Battle of Seven Pines, and during General R. E. Lee's Seven Days' campaign.  Later that summer, however, while his unit was maneuvering in central Virginia during the Second Manassas Campaign, Valentin was reported sick at one of the hospitals in Richmond, where he died in mid-August, only 20 years old. 

3

Joseph Julien, called Julien, born near St.-Gabriel in October 1792, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in January 1831.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not mention a wife, said that Joseph Julian died at "age 34 yrs.," but he was 38.  He probably did not marry. 

4

Youngest son Joseph, born near St.-Gabriel in January 1794, married Adélaïde, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Allain, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1816.  Did they have any children?

Charles HÉBERT (c1752-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques)

Charles, sole surviving son of Amand Hébert and Geneviève Babin, born at Grand-Pré in c1752, came to Louisiana from Maryland in 1767 with his widowed mother and sisters.  His father died on the voyage from Baltimore to New Orleans.  Charles may not have married.  If so, except for its blood, his family line died with him. 

Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT (c1753-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Guillaume)

Jean-Baptiste, only surviving son of Ignace Hébert and his first wife Marie LeBlanc, born probably at Grand-Pré in c1753, came to Louisiana from Maryland in 1767 with his widowed father and a sister.  His father remarried in Louisiana but had no more children, so Jean-Baptiste was his only male heir.  When Spanish officials counted Jean-Baptiste at St.-Gabriel in March 1777 with his father and stepmother, the census taker noted that Jean-Baptiste was 18 years old, but he probably was 23.  Jean-Baptiste may have devoted his life to taking care of his elderly father and stepmother and may not have married, ending this line of the family.

The arrival date of an Acadian Hébert who settled on the river during the 1770s is difficult to determine:

Descendants of Prosper-Sébastien HÉBERT (c1748-1780s; Antoine, Jean, Joseph)

Prosper-Sébastien, called Sébastien and Jacques-Prosper, son of Pierre Hébert and his first wife Isabelle Cormier, born probably at Chignecto in c1748, came to Louisiana by April 1773, when he married Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Dupuis, at St.-Jacques; their marriage also was recorded at nearby Ascension in May 1773.  In April 1777, Prosper and Marie held seven arpents on the left, or east, bank of the river at Ascension and owned a single slave, but they had no children, so their oldest son must have died in childhood.  They had more sons in the decades that followed, most of whom created families of their own.  Their daughter married an Hébert cousin.  Prosper-Sébastien died by January 1787, when his wife remarried at St.-Gabriel, just upriver from Ascension.  Three of his five sons married, but, except for the blood, all of their lines seem to have died out. 

1

Oldest son Joseph, born at Ascension in April 1774, probably died young.  

2

Pierre-Paul, also called Pierre-Prosper, baptized at St.-Jacques, age unrecorded, in July 1777, married Constance, daughter of French Creole Charles Robeau and widow of Pierre Duplessis, at Ascension in November 1806.  Their daughter married into the Cambre and Fitzgerald families.  Pierre died in Ascension Parish in March 1830; he was only 53 years old.  Evidently he and his wife had no sons, at least none who appear in local church records, so this line of the family, except for its blood, may have died with him. 

3

Michel-Cyprien, baptized, age unrecorded, at St.-Jacques in September 1779, married Madeleine-Anastasie, called Anastasie, daughter of fellow Acadian Firmin Babin, at Ascension in February 1799.  They settled in the "Island District."  Their son Hippolyte Prosper was born near St. Gabriel in January 1807 but died at age 6 in February 1813.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Henderson families.  If he and his wife had only the one son, this line of the family, except for its blood, did not survive. 

4

Jacques-Prosper, also called Michel, born probably at Ascension in the early 1780s, married Marie-Victoire, called Victoire, daughter of fellow Acadian Michel Braud, at St.-Gabriel in February 1802.  Their son Joseph-Michel was born at Ascension in March 1803, and Jacques Marcellin in October 1807 but died at age 4 in October 1811. 

Joseph Michel married Arthémise, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1831.  Joseph died near St. Gabriel in July 1833; he was only 30 years old.  His line of the family probably died with him. 

5

Youngest son Jacques-Firmin, born at Ascension in March 1783, died at Ascension in January 1813.  He was only 29 years old and probably did not marry.  

~

More Héberts came to Louisiana on every one of the Seven Ships from France in the summer and fall of 1785.  There were more Héberts on the rolls of that expedition, in fact, than any other family  These were Héberts from Minas whom the British had exiled to Virginia in the fall of 1755, had deported to England the following year, and repatriated to France in 1763; and also Héberts from Pigiguit, Cobeguit, and Île St.-Jean whom the British had deported from the Maritime islands directly to France in 1758.  After enduring the indignities of life in the mother country for a quarter of a century, they took up the Spanish government's offer to start a new life in Louisiana.  Some of them chose to settle on the river, but not all of them remained there:  

François Hébert of Cobeguit, age 72, a widower, crossed on Le Bon Papa, the first of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in July.  He followed the majority of the passengers from his ship to Manchac, south of Baton Rouge.   François died there in May 1787 less than two years after he reached the colony.  

Ursule Hébert, age 43, François's daughter, crossed on Le Bon Papa with husband Alexandre Doiron and six children, ages 21 to 2.  They also settled at Manchac. 

Thérèse Hébert, age 38, another of François's daughters, crossed on Le Bon Papa with husband Jean LeBlanc and a daughter, age 1 1/2.  They also went to Manchac.

Amable Hébert, age 43, a widower, crossed on Le Bon Papa with four children--Marie-Modeste, age 22, Geneviève, age 17, Élisabeth or Isabelle, age 14, and André, age 9--and his stepmother, Englishwoman Esther Courtney, age 60.  Two of his daughters married into the Duplantre and Landry families and remained on the river.  In the late 1780s or early 1790s, Amable, his son, and his middle daughter moved to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Amable lived into his 70s.  He did not remarry.  

Brigitte-Josèphe Hébert, age 19, Amable's married daughter, crossed on Le Bon Papa with husband Charles-Jean LeBlanc, age 23, and no children.  They followed her father to upper Bayou Lafourche by the early 1790s.  She and her family were living in New Orleans later in the decade, but they, or at least she, must have moved downriver during the antebellum period.  Brigitte died in Iberville Parish in October 1844; the St. Gabriel priest who recorded her burial, and who called her Bergique Joséphine, said that she died at "age 86 yrs." and was buried in St. Raphaël cemetery, which was on the west bank of the river; she was "only" 79. 

.

Anne Benoit, age 48, widow of Jean-Baptiste Hébert, crossed on Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  With her was her 13-year-old son Jean-Charles.  They remained at Manchac.    

Jean-Pierre Hébert, age 32, second wife Anne-Dorothée Doiron, age 24, and their infant daughter Anne-Marguerite, crossed on Le Beaumont and settled at Manchac, where more children were born to them.  

.

Joseph Hébert, age 50, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  With him were second wife Marguerite Daigle, age 45, and five children--Marie-Josèphe, age 18, Pierre-Jean, age 17, Joseph's stepdaughter Marguerite-Marie Richard, age 16, Thérèse-Anne, age 12, and infant son Jean-Pierre.  After a brief respite in the city, they followed the majority of the passengers from their ship to the new Acadian community of Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Most, if not all, of them abandoned the community by the 1790s and moved on to other river settlements or to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Joseph and Marguerite remained on the river.  

Pierre Hébert, age 50, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel with second wife Susanne Pitre, age 55, and seven children--Pierre's unmarried stepdaughter Marguerite-Josèphe Henry, age 35, Marie-Josèphe, age 24, Pierre-Jean, age 22, François-Étienne, age 18, Joseph-Yves, age 15, Mathurin-Pierre-François, age 13, and Jean-Baptiste-Olivier, age 11.  Son François-Étienne married a fellow passenger at New Orleans soon after they reached the colony and followed the family to Bayou des Écores.  Daughter Marie-Josèphe married into the Aucoin family.  Pierre, Susanne, and their daughter may have remained on the river, but Pierre's sons settled on the upper Lafourche.

Joseph Hébert, age 41, crossed on La Ville d'Archangel with wife Marie-Madeleine Aucoin, age 44, and two daughters--Marie, age 17, and Victoire, age 14.  They probably remained on the river.  

François Hébert, age unrecorded, may have crossed on La Ville d'Archangel alone.  He died at Baton Rouge in June 1801, age 56.  The priest who recorded his burial did not bother to give his parents' names nor mention a wife.  

.

Ambroise Hébert, age 54, wife Félicité Lejeune, age 42, their daughter Gertrude-Anne, age 16, and niece Anne-Angélique Gautrot, age 21, crossed on La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  They went to the Isleños settlement of Nueva Gálvez, also called San Bernardo, in present-day St. Bernard Parish, on the river below New Orleans.  Ambroise may have died at San Bernardo or at New Orleans in the late 1780s, or he may have joined his cousins on upper Bayou Lafourche.

.

By the mid-1790s, many of the Héberts from France who had gone to river communities had moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche, but some remained on the river and settled among their many cousins already there: 

Descendants of Joseph HÉBERT (c1744-?; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils)

Joseph, son of François Hébert and Élisabeth or Isabelle Bourg of Cobeguit, born probably at Cobeguit in c1740, came to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 with wife Marie-Madeleine Aucoin and two teenaged daughters; Marie-Madeleine's mother was an Hébert, so she and Joseph were cousins.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Joseph does not seem to have fathered any sons, so this line of the family, except perhaps for its blood, died with him.  

François HÉBERT (1745?-1801?; ?)

François Hébert, born in Acadia perhaps in 1745, came to Louisiana alone aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 perhaps as a stowaway.  He followed most of his fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, and may have been the François Hébert who died near Baton Rouge in June 1801, age 56.  The priest who recorded his burial did not bother to give Francois's parents' names or mention a wife.  

Descendants of Jean-Pierre HÉBERT (c1754-?; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc, Jean)

Jean-Pierre, son of Pierre Hébert and Anne Benoit, born in Acadia in c1754, came to Louisiana with his second wife, fellow Acadian Anne-Dorothée Doiron, whom he had married at Paimboeuf, France, near Nantes, in March 1784, and an infant daughter, aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the Manchac/Baton Rouge area, where more of their children, including a number of sons, were born.  Their daughters married into the Braud, Dupuis, and Lopez families. 

1

Oldest son Jean-Baptiste, born at Manchac in December 1786, married cousin Anne Mélanie, called Mélanie, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in September 1808; Mélanie's mother was an Hébert.  Their son Eugène was born near St. Gabriel in January 1814, Jean Baptiste, fils in December 1816, Valéry in December 1818, and Wassain Joseph in March 1821.  Their daughters married into the Hébert and Rivet families.  Jean-Baptiste seems to have moved his family to the western prairies during the 1820s.

2

Antoine-Anne, born at Manchac in January 1789, may have died young. 

3

Isaac, born at Manchac in June 1792, died at age 13 in November 1805.  

4

Paul-Auguste or -Augustin, also called Jean-Paul, born probably at Manchac in the late 1790s, married Marie Carmelite Telcide, called Carmelite, daughter of French Creole Michel Gareuil, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1820.  Their son Jean Timoléon was born near St. Gabriel in November 1820, a child, perhaps a son, name unrecorded, died at birth in October 1823, Magloire was born in October 1824, Louis Adolphe, called Adolphe, in January 1827, Joseph in August 1829, Justin Philios in February 1832, and Alexandre Oduill in February 1834.  Their daughter married into the Babin family.

7a

Sosthène married cousin Julida or Julie, daughter of fellow Acadian Célestin Templet, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1855; they had to secure a dispensation for third degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Anatole Edgard was born near Brusly in August 1856, George Arnaud in April 1858, and Joseph Alphonse in April 1860. 

7b

Descendants of Pierre-Jean HÉBERT (1768-1807; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Joseph)

Pierre-Jean, son of Joseph Hébert, fils and his first wife Françoise Comeau, born at St.-Servan, France, near St.-Malo, in June 1768, came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, where Pierre-Jean married Marguerite-Olive, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Longuépée, in November 1791.  Marguerite also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the late 1780s and early 1790s, Pierre-Jean and Marguerite settled near St.-Gabriel on the river below Baton Rouge.  Pierre-Jean, called Jean-Pierre by the priest who recorded his burial, died near St. Gabriel in May 1807; he was only 39 years old. 

1

Oldest son Pierre-Cyrille, called Cyrille, baptized at Baton Rouge, age unrecorded, in April 1794, married Marie Constance, called Constance, daughter of fellow Acadian François Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in April or August 1816.  Their son Cyrille, fils died in Ascension Parish, age 2 months, in February or March 1818, Pierre Timoléon, called Timoléon, was born near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1821, and Pierre Valéry, a twin, in December 1825 but died at age 6 months in June 1826.  Pierre Cyrille remarried to Marie Hélène, called Hélène, daughter of fellow Acadian Jacques Guidry and widow of Sébastien Frederick and his youngest brother Urbin, at the St. Gabriel church in November 1838; they had to secure a dispensation for first degree of affinity in order to marry.  Their daughter married into the Chebert family.  Pierre Cyrille died near St. Gabriel in December 1840; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Pierre Cyrille died at "age 40 yrs.," but he was may have been a few years older than that. 

Pierre Timoléon, by his father's first wife, married cousin Marie Gertrude, called Gertrude, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Raphaël Landry, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in June 1842.  Their son Pierre Hermogène, called Hermogène, was born near St. Gabriel in January 1846.

Zenon, born near St.-Gabriel in June 1800, married Marie Louise, called Louise, daughter of French Creole Guillaume Germain Dubeau, Dubois, or Dubourg and widow of Célestin Morales, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in August 1824; Marie Louise's mother was a LeBlanc.  Their son Louis Zenon was born near St. Gabriel in May 1831, Guillaume in October 1834, and a newborn infant, name unrecorded, perhaps a son, died in August 1839.  Zenon died near St. Gabriel in May 1841; the priest who recorded his burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Zenon died at "age 37-40 yrs."; he was a month shy of 41. 

4

Youngest son Landry-Urbin, called Urbin, born near St.-Gabriel in May 1802, married Marie Hélène, called Hélène, daughter of fellow Acadian Jacques Guidry and widow of Sébastien Frederick, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in February 1834.  Urbin died by November 1838, when his widow remarried to his oldest brother Cyrille.  Did Urbin father any children? 

Jean-Pierre HÉBERT (1785-?; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Joseph)

Jean-Pierre, son of Joseph Hébert, fils and his second wife Marguerite Daigle, and younger half-brother of Pierre-Jean, was born probably at St.-Malo, France, in February 1785.  He came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed them to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge.  Jean-Pierre may have died young. 

Descendants of Jean-Charles HÉBERT (1772-1812; Étienne, Jean, Jean, fils)

Jean-Charles, son of Jean-Baptiste Hébert and his second wife Anne Benoit, born at Locmaria, Belle-Île-en-Mer, France, in January 1772, came to Louisiana with his widowed mother aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to the Manchac/Baton Rouge, where Jean-Charles married Marie-Françoise, called Françoise, daughter of fellow Acadian Augustin Landry, in May 1803.  Marie-Françoise was a native of Louisiana.  Jean-Charles remarried to Martine, daughter of fellow Acadian Honoré Braud, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in May 1809.  Martine had been born aboard Le St.-Rémi when her family crossed to Louisiana in 1785.  Their daughter married into the Melançon family.  Jean-Charles died at St.-Gabriel in October 1812; he was only 40 years old.   One wonders if this line of the family, except for its blood, survived in the Bayou State.  

Joseph Joachim, by his father's first wife, born at Manchac in March 1804, died at age 7 months the following December. 

~

The arrival date of an Hébert who settled on the river during the late 1780s is difficult to determine: 

Descendants of Paul-Hippolyte HÉBERT (c1761-?; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc)

Paul-Hippolyte, called Hippolyte, son of Amand Hébert and Françoise Gautrot of Grand-Pré, was born probably in Connecticut in c1761.  After the war with Britain finally ended, his parents settled at La-Prairie-de-la-Magdeleine, on the St. Lawrence River above Québec, where Hippolyte was baptized in September 1768, but he did not remain there.  He came to Louisiana via St.-Louis, Missouri, by February 1790, when he married Anne-Marie, called Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Michel, at St.-Jacques.  He was one of the few Acadians who came to Louisiana via the upper Mississippi.  Their daughters married into the Desormeaux and Pertuit families.  Neither of his sons seems to have married, so this line of the family, except for its blood, did not survive in the Bayou State. 

1

Older son Paul-Eugène, born at St.-Jacques in December 1799, died near Convent, St. James Parish, in February 1828.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Paul was "about 26 yrs." old when he died, but he was 28.  He probably did not marry. 

2

A younger son, name unrecorded, "recently born," was buried at St-Jacques in September 1802.  

~

In a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, Héberts from upper Bayou Lafourche settled on the river, in West Baton Rouge and Ascension parishes, during the antebellum period: 

Descendants of Cromace HÉBERT (1797-1858; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Ambroise)

Cromace, Crama, Cramas, or Cronias, third son of Isaac Hébert and Marie-Marguerite Daigle, baptized at Assumption, age unrecorded, in August 1797, married cousin Marguerite Uranie, called Uranie, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Doiron of West Baton Rouge Parish, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in February 1831; Marguerite's mother was an Hébert.  They settled in West Baton Rouge Parish.  Their daughter married into the Lopez family.  Cromace remarried to cousin Hortense, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Babin, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in August 1842; Hortense's mother, also, was an Hébert.  Their daughters married into the Buquoi and Templet families.  Cromace died near Brusly in October 1858; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Cromas, as he called him, died at "age 62 years"; Cromace was "only" 61.

Youngest son Charles Cromace, by his father's first wife, born near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in October 1839, married Olesida, daughter of fellow Acadian Marcellin Templet, at the Brusly church, West Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1866. 

Descendants of Jean-Arsène HÉBERT (1798-1859?; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Pierre, Jean-Baptiste)

Jean-Arsène, called Arsène, elder son of Jean-Olivier Hébert and Nathalie-Marie Aucoin, born at Assumption in July 1798, married Marguerite Cécile, daughter of French Creole Louis Judice, at the Donaldson church, Ascension Parish, in January 1820; Marguerite's mother was a Rassicot, and her father had been the commandant of the Ascension District during the late colonial period.  Arsène and Marguerite's daughter married into the Boudreaux family.  Arsène remarried to Rosalie Euphrosine or Euphrasie, perhaps also called Émelie R., daughter of fellow Acadian Jean Baptiste Gaudin and widow of Pierre Duval Babin, at the Donaldsonville church in October 1837.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Hébert, LeBlanc, and Melançon families.  Arsène may have died in Ascension Parish in September 1859; the Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Arsènes, as he called him, died at "age 64 years"; Jean Arsène would have been "only" 61. 

1

Oldest son Pierre Arsène, by his father's first wife, born in Ascension Parish in October 1820, died at age 4 in October 1824.

2

Jean Baptiste, by his father's first wife, born in Ascension Parish in March 1822, married Marie Albina, Alsina, Alzina, or Arcina, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexandre Landry, at the Donalsonville church, Ascension Parish, in May 1843.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Gérard was born in October 1849, Joseph Second in November 1853, François Ercide in October 1855, Clément Arsène in February 1860, and Séverin in November 1864.  Their daughter married into the Babin family.

Louis Arsène, called Arsène, from his father's first wife, born in Ascension Parish in May 1829, likely married fellow Acadian Marie Mathilde, called Mathilde, Gaudin in Ascension Parish by the early 1850s.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Valaintine was born in February 1853, Vincent Adam in January 1859, and François Arsène in September 1864.  Arsène remarried to Marie Aimée, called Aimée, daughter of fellow Acadian Hippolyte Breaux, at the Gonzales church, Ascension Parish, in June 1866. 

5

Joseph Olivier, by his father's first wife, born in Ascension Parish in February 1831, married Marie Claire, daughter of fellow Acadian Olésime Landry, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in August 1852. 

6

Pierre Sosthène, called Sosthène, from his father's first wife, born in Ascension Parish in October 1832, died at age 14 months in December 1833. 

7

Léonard Bienvenu, called Bienvenu, from his father's second wife, born in Ascension Parish in November 1840, married cousin and fellow Acadian Marie Angelina Dugas at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in April 1861; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Joseph Oscar, called Oscar, was born in Ascension Parish in February 1866 but died the following September. 

8

Félicien C., by his father's second wife, perhaps Jean Arsène's youngest son, may have served in the Donaldsonville Artillery during the War of 1861.  Felician, as the Confederate records call him, while a resident of Donaldsonville, enlisted in the battery there in September 1861.  He followed his unit to Virginia and was reported present on company rolls until the late summer and early fall of 1863, when he was reported absent on wounded furlough in Louisiana.  He likely had been wounded at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in July 1863 but not severely enough to have been left on the battlefield.  He remained in Louisiana for the rest of the war, becoming absent without leave in November 1863.  He signed an end-of-war parole at Natchitoches in June 1865, two months after his unit surrendered with Lee's army at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia.  Félicien C. married first cousin Emma M., daughter of his maternal uncle Jérôme Sylvanie Gaudin, at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in November 1867; they had to secure a dispensation for second degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Sulpice Félicien was born in Ascension Parish in January 1870.

Other HÉBERTs on the River

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Héberts on the river with known Acadian lines of the family there.  The priests at St. Gabriel, Baton Rouge, Brusly, and Donaldsonville were especially negligent in their recordkeeping.  One suspects that some of the Héberts who lived on the river during the post-war period were Afro Creoles once owned by Acadian Héberts:

Gabriel Hébert, born near Baton Rouge in c1785, married French Creole Clara Massé probably at Baton Rouge in the 1810s.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born at Baton Rouge in April 1819.  Gabriel, "a native of West Baton Rouge Parish," died there "In the last days of Sept." 1855; the Baton Rouge priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Gabriel died "at age 70 years."  One wonders who was Gabriel's father and if he was Acadian. 

Jean Baptiste, fils, son of Jean Baptiste Hébert, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, age 7 months, in September 1820.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the mother's name. 

Joséphine Hébert married French Creole Jean Baptiste Caillouet at the Convent church, St. James Parish, in May 1821.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not list the couple's parents' names.  Joséphine died near Convent in July 1833.  She was only 40 years old. 

Céleste Hébert gave birth to son Bélisaire near Baton Rouge in December 1822.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism in February 1825 did not give the father's name or Céleste's parents' names.  A Bélisaire Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1848.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Bélizaire, as he called him, died at "age 25 yrs.," so this likely was Céleste's son.  One wonders if he married. 

Élie Hébert, "res. St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish," died "at the home of Abraham Arseneaux" near Convent, St. James Parish, in January 1823.  The priest who recorded his burial, but who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Élie was 40 years old when he died. 

Jean Baptiste Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in September 1823.  The priest who recorded his burial, but who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Jean Baptiste was 33 years old when he died. 

Pierre Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in May 1824.  The priest who recorded his burial, but who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Pierre was 58 years old when he died. 

Phelonise, daughter of Abraham Hébert, gave birth to daughter Marie Victorine probably near St. Gabriel in c1824.  Marie Victorine died near St. Gabriel, age 9, in September 1833.  The priest who recorded the girl's burial did not give the father's name, but he did note that the mother was "now wife of Janvier Allain."

Zacharie Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in March 1826.  The priest who recorded his burial, but who did not give any parents' names, said that Zacharie was 22 years old when he died. 

Michel Hébert died near St. Gabriel in August 1828.  The priest who recorded Michel's burial did not give his age, record his parents' names, or mention a wife. 

Jean Baptiste Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in April 1829.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Baptiste was 22 years old when he died but did not record any parents' names or mention a wife. 

Paul Hébert married Acadian Marcelline Rosalie, daughter of fellow Acadian Charles Dupuy and widow of Volny Doiron, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1829.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  One wonders if he was the Paul Hébert who died in West Baton Rouge in January 1831, age 28. 

Marie Arvelline Hébert married French Creole Jean Baptiste LeTullier at the home of Isidore François LeTullier near Baton Rouge in June 1829.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the parents' names. 

Hélène Hébert gave birth to son Sosthène near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1829.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism in May 1830 did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Gabriel Hébert died near Baton Rouge in February 1831.  He was only 17 years old.  The priest who recorded his burial did not give the young man's parents' names. 

Hélène Hébert's infant son, name and age unrecorded, died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in October 1834.  The priest who recorded the boy's burial did not give the father's name or Hélène's parents' names. 

Joseph Hébert married French Creole Marie Oubre probably in St. James Parish in the 1830s. 

John Béloni Hébert died near Baton Rouge in June 1831.  The priest who recorded his burial said that John was 22 years old when he died but did not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

James Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in August 1835.  The priest who recorded his burial said that James was 32 years old when he died but did give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Joseph Hébert died in Ascension Parish in October 1836.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was "age ca. 37 yrs." when he died but did not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

Éloi Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in February 1838.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Éloi died at age 40. 

Auguste Hébert married French Creole Marie Zéolide Tuillier and settled near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, by the early 1840s. 

Louis Amazone Hébert married Émelie Labry.  Their son Auguste, a twin, was born in Pointe Coupee Parish in January 1842. 

Cadet or Caded Hébert married Augustine Duburalaux or Dubardaux.  Their son Numa Augustin was born in West Baton Rouge Parish in August 1842, and Joseph Alberie near Brusly in July 1847.  One wonders if the Arville Hébert who died near Brusly in July 1849, age 2, was the same as Joseph Alberie; the priest who recorded the boys' burial did not give any parents' names. 

Drosin Hébert settled in Ascension Parish by the early 1840s.  His son Théophile was born probably in Ascension Parish in c1843 but died at age 6 in August 1849, and François Octave died at age 4 months in August 1849.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the boys' burials did not give the mother's name. 

Domitille, daughter of Joseph Hébert and Marie Louise Aucoin, married Troy, son of Anglo American Andry Brackin, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1844.  Who were Domitille's paternal grandparents? 

Justin Philiosse Hébert died near St. Gabriel, Iberville Parish, in July 1846.  The priest who recorded his burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Justin died at "age 40 yrs."  So who were his parents, and did he marry? 

Trasimond Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in November 1846.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Trasimon, as he called him, died at "age 21 yrs." 

Jules Julien Hébert married Mary Eliza Hughes, also called Elliot, and settled near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, by the late 1840s. 

William Hébert married Antoinette Hébert.  Their son Gene Allen was born near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in September 1850. 

Louis Hébert married fellow Acadian Marie Arthémise Mire and lived in Lafayette Parish.  Their daughter married into the Boudreaux family.  A succession record for Louis Hébert, married to Marie Urazie Mire, was filed at the Vermilionville courthouse, Lafayette Parish, in January 1851. 

Dorville Hébert married Elisa Hébert and settled near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, by the early 1850s. 

Sosthène Hébert died in Ascension Parish in May 1854.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Sostin, as he called him, died at "age 15 years." 

Charles Hébert married Spanish Creole Polonie Placentia and settled in Ascension Parish by the mid-1850s. 

Victorine Hébert, or so she signed herself, daughter of Euphémie Hébert, wife of Magloire Dupuy, fils, married Achille, son of Maximilien Bolsineur, at the Baton Rouge church, East Baton Rouge Parish, in May 1855.  So who was Victorine's actual father?  Was she born to her mother before Euphémie married Magloire Dupuy, fils in January 1827? 

Adrien Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in October 1855.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that Adrien died at "age 27 years." 

François Hébert died in Ascension Parish in November 1855.  The Donaldsonville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that François died at "age ca. 70 years." 

Joseph Siméon, called Siméon, Hébert married Marie Mélanie, called Mélanie, Parent at the Donaldsonville church, Ascension Parish, in September 1856.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  They settled near Gonzales.  Their son Victorin A. was born in December 1858, and Joseph Bernard in August 1866. 

Another Siméon Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1857, age 24.  The priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names or mention a wife. 

August Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in October 1857.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or mention a wife, said that August died at "age 54 years."  Which Auguste Hébert was this? 

Pierre Henry Hébert "of West Baton Rouge Parish" died in June 1858.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Pierre Henry died at "age 4 years." 

Jules Joseph Hébert married Anglo American Elisa Hughes.  Their son Joseph Jules was baptized at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, age unrecorded, in February 1860. 

Meade K. Hébert died near Plaquemine, Iberville Parish, in January 1863.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Meade K. died at "age 2 months, 2 days." 

Joseph Élien Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in June 1864.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names, said that Joseph Élien died at "age 14 months."  One wonders if the boy's death was war-related. 

Iréné Hébert gave birth to son Joseph Paul in July 1864.  The Baton Rouge priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Joséphine Hébert gave birth to son Théodore near Baton Rouge in June 1866.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name or the mother's parents' names. 

Paul Hébert married fellow Acadian Adélaïde LeBlanc.  Their son Paul, fils was born in Iberville Parish in June 1866. 

M., son of Marcellin Hébert, died in Iberville Parish in September 1866.  The St. Gabriel priest who recorded the burial gave only the father's name and did not give the age of the deceased, whom he called simply "M." 

Sylvain or Sylvanie Hébert married Lorenza Guizot or Guyot civilly and sanctified the marriage at the Plaquemine church, Iberville Parish, in April 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names nor the date of their civil marriage.  A daughter had been born to them near Plaquemine the previous February. 

Rose Hébert married Valérien Richard, perhaps a fellow Acadian, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in February 1870.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names, but he did note that the marriage legitimized eight of the couple's children, ages 22 years to 1 month. 

Amelia, daughter of Lasty Hébert and Marie Jean Pierre, married Jean Baptiste, fils, son of Jean Baptiste Jasmin and Julienne Lassdore, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in December 1870.  Was Lasty Acadian? 

.

Hébert families living at Baton Rouge and Pointe Coupee during the antebellum period cannot be linked by local church records to any of the other Héberts in the area: 

Descendants of Joseph HÉBERT (?-; ?)

Joseph Hébert married Marie Lejuiti, Labutte, or Lajuste Verdeau, Verdouse, Verdot, Verdoux, and Verdu and settled near Baton Rouge by the early 1820s.

1

Older son Joseph Leufroi, called Leufroi, born near Baton Rouge in June 1822, married Mathilde, daughter of Acadian Pierre Aucoin, at the St. Gabriel church, Iberville Parish, in January 1846.

2

Younger son Nicolas was born near Baton Rouge, in June 1831.  

Descendants of Zenon Lasty HÉBERT (?-; ?)

Zenon Lasty, called Lasty, Hébert married Clara or Claire Gremillion at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in September 1866, but they evidently had been married civilly for many years.  (One wonders if Zenon, fils, son of Zenon Hébert and Marguerite ____, born in October 1864 and baptized at the Pointe Coupee church in April 1865, was a son of Zenon Lasty by a previous marriage, or if Claire's name was Marguerite Claire.)  Was Zenon Lasty Acadian? 

Victorin married Delphine, daughter Marie Alcé Verneuil, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in May 1870. 

LOUISIANA:  LAFOURCHE VALLEY SETTLEMENTS

Most of the many Héberts who came to Louisiana from France in 1785 chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche: 

Charles Hébert, age 62, a widower, daughter Marie-Yvette, age 33, a widow, and her son Pierre Henry, age 14, crossed on La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in August.  Charles probably died at Lafourche.  Marie-Yvette probably did not remarry. 

Marie-Madeleine Dugas, age 43, widow of Jean-Baptiste Hébert, crossed on La Bergère with seven children--Anne-Simone, age 20, Pierre-Michel, age 18, Anne-Marie, called Marie, age 17, Joseph-Servan dit Joson, age 15, Isabelle-Jeanne, age 13, Prosper-François, age 5, and infant Étienne.  Marie-Madeleine did not remarry; she died at Lafourche in October 1793; she was only 51.  Her daughters married into the Blanchard, Bourg, and Dugas families.  Her sons settled on the upper bayou.  Daughter Anne Simone died a widow in Assumption Parish in June 1833; the Plattenville priest who recorded her burial said that she was 63 years old when she died, but she was 69.  Daughter Marie died a widow in Assumption Parish in August 1843, age 75. 

Luce Bourg, age 40, widow of Jean-Baptiste Hébert, crossed on La Bergère with four children--Marie-Gertrude-Josèphe, age 17, Jean-Olivier, age 15, Félicité-Jeanne, age 13, and Françoise-Luce, age 11.  Luce's daughters married into the Blanchard, Gautreaux, and Landry families.  Her son settled on the upper Lafourche.  Luce remarried to Simon, son of Joseph Mazerolle and widower of Marguerite Trahan, at Lafourche in January 1788.  Simon also had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère.  They had no more children.  Daughter Françoise Luce, wife of Grégoire Landry, died in Assumption Parish in December 1856, in her early 80s--one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

Isaac Hébert, age 32, crossed on La Bergère with wife Marie-Marguerite Daigle, age 23, and two children--Rémi, age 3, and infant Renée-Eulalie.  Isaac and Marie-Marguerite had more children on the upper bayou.  

.

Joseph Hébert, age 50, crossed on Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in September.  With him were second wife Marie Benoit, age 48, three children--Joseph, fils, age 24, Marie-Geneviève, age 22, and Sophie-Marie, age 15--and niece Sophie Benoit, age 8.  Joseph, père and Marie had no more children in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Comeaux, Culaire, and Gautreaux families.  Joseph, fils settled on the upper bayou, as did his cousin, Sophie Benoit.  

Anne Hébert, age 42, widow of Pierre Robichaud, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with four children, ages 17 to 2.  Anne remarried to widower and fellow Acadian Pierre LeBlanc at Lafourche in August 1790 and remained with him on the upper bayou. 

Joseph-Ignace Hébert, age 37, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Anne Dugas, age 36, and four children--Pierre, age 15, Olivier, age 11, Élisabeth-Jeanne, age 9, and Louis-Ambroise, age 2.  They had more children on the upper bayou, where Joseph-Ignace remarried in 1805 in his late 50s.  

Joseph Hébert, age 36, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Jeanne De la Forestrie of Île St.-Jean, age 32, and five children--Joseph-Marie, age 11, Charles, age 10, Marie-Rose, age 8, Louis-Jean, age 5, and infant Anne-MargueriteJoseph died at Lafourche not long after the family reached the colony.  Jeanne remarried to Sébastien, son of fellow Acadian Augustin Benoit, at Lafourche in August 1789.  Jeanne died on the upper bayou in the early 1790s, in her early 40s.  After her death, Sébastien moved to the western prairies and remarried.  Jeanne's youngest Hébert son remained on the upper Lafourche, but her older sons and her daughters followed their stepfather to the western prairies, where the daughters married into the Bodin, Bouillon, Lebert, and Olivier (French Creole, not Acadian) families.    

Jean-Baptiste Hébert, age 35, crossed on Le St.-Rémi with wife Anne-Josèphe Dugas, age 36, and five sons--Jean-Joseph, age 14, Ambroise-Mathurin, age 12, Simon, age 7, Alexis-Thomas, age 2, and Martin, a newborn.  They had no more children in Louisiana.  Their sons settled on the upper bayou.  Jean-Baptiste died in Ascension Parish in March 1819; he was 70 years old.  Two of his succession records, including an inventory, were filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse, Lafourche Interior Parish, the following May; future governor Henry Schuyler Thibodaux was named as curator of his estate.  A third succession record was filed in April 1820 at what became the Houma courthouse, so Jean Baptiste must have owned property in what became Terrebonne Parish. 

.

Ambroise, age 39, and Jean-Pierre Hébert, age 38, unmarried older brothers of Isaac of La Bergère, crossed on L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in November.  They remained on the upper bayou, where Jean-Pierre married.  

Étienne Hébert, age 38, crossed on L'Amitié with third wife Anne-Madeleine Breau, age 36, and five children from two of his wives--Cécile, age 18, Jean-Louis-Étienne, age 16, Guillaume-Bénoni, age 12, Louis-Gabriel, age 10, and infant Marie-Madeleine.  They had another daughter but no more sons in Louisiana.  Their daughters married into the Boutary and Neveu families.  Their sons also settled on the bayou.  What likely was Étienne's succession record was filed at what became the Thibodauxville courthouse, Interior Parish, in August 1805.  One wonders if he had died by then.  Daughter Marie-Madeleine, widow of Antoine Boutary, fils, died in Lafourche Parish in July 1854; the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that Marie died "at age 76 yrs.," but she was "only" 69; she also was one of the last Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

Marie Hébert, age 12, an orphan, crossed on L'Amitié with the family of Joseph Boudreau.  She remained with that family on upper Bayou Lafourche as a "minor premise," whatever that might be, and married widower Saturnin Bruno at St.-Jacques on the river in June 1791.  They settled probably on the upper bayou.  

.

Luce-Perpétué Bourg, age 43, widow of Pierre Hébert, and three daughters--Victoire-Luce, age 17, Anne-Marie-Julienne, age 11, and Julienne-Pérrine, age 5--crossed on La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  Evidently they did not follow the great majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, but went directly to upper Bayou Lafourche instead.  Luce-Perpétué remarried twice, first to fellow Acadian Félix Boudreaux, widower of Madeleine Hébert, at Lafourche in August 1787, and then to Charles, son of fellow Acadian Pierre Gautreaux and widower of Marie-Madeleine Melançon, at Lafourche in November 1789.  Her Hébert daughters settled on the upper bayou and married into the Cedotal, Dominguez, LeBlanc, and Thériot families.  Daughter Victoire died a widow in Assumption Parish in November 1824, in her late 50s.  Daughter Anne died in Assumption Parish in June 1833, age 60.  Daughter Julienne-Pérrine may have died in Assumption Parish in March 1859, age 79, which would have made her one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors. 

.

Joseph Hébert, age 15, his 10-year-old sister Marie-Louise, and their half-brother, Martin-Bénoni Pitre, age 18, crossed on La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, which reached New Orleans in December.  Joseph may not have married.  Marie-Louise married André, son of fellow Acadian Charles LeBlanc, at Assumption in October 1793, and died a widow in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1851, age 75--one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in Louisiana to join our ancestors.  Her half-brother Martin-Bénoni also settled on the Lafourche.

.

The Héberts from France created a third center of family settlement on Bayou Lafourche:

Ambroise (c1746-1813) and Jean-Pierre (c1747-1824) HÉBERT (Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils)

Brothers Ambroise, fils and Jean-Pierre, first and second sons of Ambroise Hébert and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Bourg, born probably at Cobeguit in c1746 and c1747, followed their family to Île St.-Jean probably in 1755 and were deported with them to France in 1758.  They came to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785, and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Ambroise never married.  (As church records reveal, he witnessed many marriages at the Plattenville church in Assumption Parish, so he may have been a lay official of the parish.  One wonders if Ambroise, like younger brother Isaac, also studied for the priesthood in France under Abbé Jean-Louis Le Loutre.)  Jean-Pierre married Eudoxile, 40-year-old daughter of fellow Acadian Honoré Girouard, at Lafourche in October 1787; Jean-Pierre also was 40 years old at the time of the wedding; amazingly, this was a first marriage for both of them.  Eudoxile also had come to Louisiana aboard L'Amitié, so they had known one another for years.  Jean-Pierre and Eudoxile had no children.  By 1791, Jean-Pierre was a widower and living with his older brother at Assumption.  Ambroise died in Assumption Parish in May 1813; the priest who recorded his burial said that Ambroise was 71 years old when he died, but he was "only" 67.  Jean Pierre died in Assumption Parish in November 1824; the priest who recorded his burial said that Jean Pierre was 70 years old when he died, but he was closer to 77.  Younger brother Isaac perpetuated the family line in Louisiana. 

Descendants of Isaac HÉBERT (c1753-1822; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils)

Isaac, third son of Ambroise Hébert and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Bourg and younger brother of Ambroise, fils and Jean-Pierre, was born at Cobeguit in c1753, on the eve of Le Grand Dérangement.  Isaac followed his family to Île St.-Jean in 1755 and was deported with them to France in 1758.  In the mother country, he studied for the priesthood under the notorious Abbé Jean-Louis Le Loutre from 1768 until the abbé's death in September 1772.  After his mentor died, Isaac quit his studies and worked as a printer.  He came to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785 with his 23-year-old wife Marie-Marguerite, daughter of Eustache Daigre, whom he had married in France in c1780, and a son and an infant daughter, both born in France.  They followed his older brothers and the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Isaac and Marie-Marguerite had more children, including four more sons.  Isaac's daughters married into the Aucoin, Barrilleaux, Cedotal, Doiron, Landry, and Potier families.  Isaac died in Assumption Parish in April 1822; the priest who recorded his burial said that Isaac was 74 years old when he died, but he was closer to 69.  One of his younger sons moved to the river, but the others remained on the Lafourche.

Oldest son Rémi, also called Henry and René, baptized at St.-Nicolas, Nantes, France, age unrecorded, in January 1782, married Renée- or Iréné-Élisabeth, called Élisabeth, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Guidry, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in April 1808.  Renée, a native of Paimboeuf, France, near Nantes, came to Louisiana in 1785 as an infant aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships.  Their son Jean Baptiste Zenon was born in Assumption Parish in March 1810, Valéry Leufroi or Leufroi Valéry in February 1817, François Arsène in February 1820, Lezin Auguste or Augustin in February 1823 but died at age 6 months the following September, and Charles Théodore, called Théodore, was born in November 1824.  Their daughters married into the Berthelot, Mazerolle, Simoneaux, and Theriot families.  Rémi Hébert died near Brusly, West Baton Rouge Parish, in January 1852; the priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Rémi died at "age 66 yrs.," but this Rémi would have been 70.  If this was him, one wonders what he was doing in West Baton Rouge Parish at the time of his death. 

1a

Leufroi Valéry died in Assumption Parish in November 1833.  The priest who recorded his burial said that Leufroi Valéry was 18 years old when he died, but he was only 16. 

1b

Arsène married cousin Henriette or Henrietta, daughter of French Creole Romain Friou, at the Paincourtville church, Assumption Parish, in January 1842; Henriette's mother was a Dugas; they had to secure a dispensation for fourth degree of consanguinity in order to marry.  Their son Henry Séverin was born near Plattenville in December 1842, Joseph Bienvenu near Paincourtville in March 1849, Joseph Narcisse in January 1852, Aimé, perhaps their son, in c1855 but died at age 10 in June 1865, Joseph Lazare was born in July 1857, and Cyprien Jean Baptiste near Pierre Part, north of Lake Verret, in January 1862.  Their daughter married into the Grandin family.

Descendants of Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT (c1747-1821; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc)

Joseph-Ignace, son of Jean Hébert and his first wife Marie-Madeleine Doiron, born in Acadia in c1747, was taken to Grand-Anse, Île St.-Jean, now Prince Edward Island, as a child and was deported with his father, stepmother, and many siblings to France in 1758 aboard the British transport Supply.  His family settled at St.-Suliac, near St.-Malo, where he married cousin Anne, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Dugas, in February 1768; Anne's mother was an Hébert.  Two of their children, a daughter and a son, died at St.-Suliac as infants.  Joseph-Ignace took his family to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he and Anne had more children, including another son.  Their daughters married into the Boudreaux and Roger families.  Joseph Ignace remarried to Marguerite, daughter of fellow Acadian Amand Pitre and widow of Jean Nicolas Bertrand, at Assumption in May 1805; he was 58 years old at the time of the wedding.  Marguerite had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships.  Joseph Ignace filed an estate inventory record at what became the Interior Parish courthouse in August 1806 probably as a result of his remarriage.  He died in Lafourche Interior Parish in September 1821; he was 74 years old; his post-mortem succession records were filed at the Thibodauxville courthouse in September 1821 and June 1822.  Two of his sons moved to the western prairies, but the others remained on the bayou.

2a

Joseph Olivier married Félicité, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Honoré Breaux, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1820.  Their son Joseph Célestin was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1823, Onésime in February 1829, Joseph Oville in February 1831, and François Trasimond in October 1839.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Guidry, Guillot, LeBoeuf, and Trahan families.  Their oldest son moved to lower Bayou Teche after the War of 1861-65.

Cyprien Alexis married Marie Pauline, called Pauline, daughter of fellow Acadian Théodore Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in April 1845; Alexis's sister Pauline married his wife Marie Pauline's brother Eugène.  Alexis and Pauline's son Alexis, fils died in Lafourche Interior Parish 6 days after his birth in February 1849.  Their daughters married Boudreaux cousins.  Alexis, père died by May 1850, when his wife remarried in Lafourche Interior Parish.  Did his family line, except for its blood, survive? 

2c

Martin married Marie Josèphe, 24-year-old daughter of French Creole Nicolas Gabriel Albert, fils, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1829; Marie's mother was a Bourg.  Their son Valéry Olivier was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1830, Joseph Onésime in February 1835, Evariste in March 1840, and Cleopha Léon in November 1842.  Their daughters married into the Adam, Hotard, and Thibodeaux families.  Martin died in "1860 or 1861"; he was in his early 60s; an "application for administration," listing his children, was filed at the Houma courthouse, Terrebonne Parish, in December 1865.  His older son moved to the Bayou Teche valley after the War Between the States. 

Valéry married Eveline or Evelina, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Boudreaux, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in June 1857; the marriage was recorded also in Terrebonne Parish, but they lived near the boundary between Lafourche and Assumption parishes.  Their son André Treville was born in November 1859, Louis Henri in April 1862, and Jean Elphége in March 1864.  They were living near Breaux Bridge, St. Martin Parish, in 1866.  Valéry's succession record was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse, St. Martin Parish, in April 1868; he would have been 38 years old that year.

3

Louis-Ambroise, by his father's first wife, born at Nantes, France, in November 1783, moved to the northern edge of the Attakapas District perhaps with older brother Pierre.  He does not seem to have married.  

4

Youngest son Jean-Baptiste, by his father's first wife, born at Lafourche in June 1790, may have died young, or he may have married Céleste Azélie or Azélie Céleste, daughter of perhaps fellow Acadian Basile Prejean, in Lafourche Interior Parish in the late 1810s; church records are unclear.  If it was this Jean-Baptiste who married Céleste Azélie, did he father any children? 

Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT (c1754-1818; ?)

Joseph-Nicolas, called Nicolas, son of Pierre Hébert and Marie-Madeleine Daigle, born probably at Grand-Prè in c1754, ended up in France.  He came to Louisiana with the family of his uncle Blaise Thibodeau aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785 and  followed them to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Agnès, daughter of fellow Acadian Honoré Gautreaux, in May 1786; Joseph-Nicolas was 32 years old at the time of the wedding, and Agnès was 30.  They were that rare Acadian couple who had no children.  Nicolas died in Assumption Parish in August 1818; the Plattenville church priest who recorded his burial said that Nicolas was 72 years old when died, but he was closer to 64.  

Descendants of Joseph HÉBERT, fils (1760-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques)

Joseph, fils, only surviving son of Joseph Hébert and his first wife Marguerite Richard, born in England in September 1760, was repatriated to France with his family in May 1763.  They lived at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo.  Joseph, fils became a tanner in France.  Still a bachelor, he came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, two sisters, and a cousin aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Joseph, fils married Marie-Jeanne, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste Darembourg, in April 1786.  Marie-Jeanne also had come to Louisiana aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Their daughter married into the Corey and Priou families.  Both of their sons married.  Their older son's line was especially vigorous.

1a

Justin, by his father's first wife, married Marie Azélie, called Azélie, daughter of fellow Acadian Guillaume Bergeron of Terrebonne Parish, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in July 1839.  Their son Auguste le jeune was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1840, Jean Léon in Terrebonne Parish in February 1851, Adam Octave, a twin, in June 1854 but died at age 1 in July 1855, Octave Schuyler Justin was born in October 1857, and Guillaume Harisse in February 1860.  They also had an older son named Aubert, also called Hubert.  Their daughters married into the Babin, Bélanger, and Pitre families.

2

Younger son Joseph-Auguste, called Auguste, born at Assumption in October 1799, married Rosalie or Rose, daughter of fellow Acadian Alexis Lejeune, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in June 1820.  Their son Alexis Georges, called Georges, was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in April 1826, Joseph in March 1830, Élie Washington, called Washington, in November 1833, Octave in March 1836, Henri Shalière or Schuyler in November 1838, and Augustin Charles in May 1844.  Their daughters married into the Bergeron, Elfert, and Toups families.  Joseph Auguste served as tutor for Jean Baptiste Sylvain, minor son of Jean Baptiste Lejeune, his brother-in-law, after the boy's father died in November 1827; the quittance ending the tutorship was filed at the Houma courthouse in July 1836, when the boy was age 10, and described Jean Auguste as a resident of Lafourche Interior Parish.  Joseph Auguste remarried to "Mrs. Alix," Alice, or Aline, daughter of fellow Acadian Fabien Sébastien Dantin and widow of Célestin Lirette, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in June 1858 [the record says, erroneously, 1838], and sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church a few days later; Auguste was 58 years old at the time of the wedding.  Their son Augusta Armini was born in Lafourche Parish in November 1859, Tailer Lucas in May 1861, Tennessee died at age 11 months in July 1863, and Étienne Adam was born in April 1865, when his father was 65 years old. 

2a

Georges, by his father's first wife, married Arcelite, daughter of French Creole Urbain Poché, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in May 1852; Arcelite's mother was a LeBlanc.  Their son Félix was born in Lafourche Parish in March 1853 but may have died "during[sic] yellow fever epidemic" in January 1854.  Georges died in Lafourche Parish "during [the] yellow fever epidemic" in September 1853; the Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, nor did he give George's age at the time of his death; Georges would have been only 27; a petition for tutorship for son Nelson was filed at the Thibodaux courthouse the following January; one wonders if Nelson and Félix were the same child and if this family line survived. 

2b

Washington, by his father's first wife, died in Lafourche Parish in September 1853.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that Washington died "at age 21 yrs.," but he was only 19.  He probably did not marry.

Descendants of Pierre-Michel HÉBERT (1766-1845?; ?)

Pierre-Michel, eldest son of Jean-Baptiste Hébert and Marie-Madeleine Dugas, born at St.-Coulomb, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1766, came to Louisiana with his widowed mother and siblings aboard La Bergère, the second of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Pierre married Élisabeth- or Isabelle-Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Simon Mazerolle, in September 1791.  Élisabeth-Marie also had come to Louisiana aboard La Bergère.  Their daughters married into the Campo, Comeaux, Daigle, Giroir, Guillot, and Landry families.  Pierre Michel may have died in Assumption Parish in May 1845; the Plattenville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife, says that Pierre died at "age 80 yrs."; this Pierre would have been 79, so this likely was him.

Cleber, by his father's first wife, married Émilie, daughter of fellow Acadian Evariste Babin, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in August 1865; Émilie's sister Odillia was Cleber's stepmother, so Émilie was Cleber's aunt by marriage!

During the War of 1861-65, Wellington F., as Confederate records called him, served as a fourth corporal in Company D of the 26th Regiment Louisiana Infantry, raised in Lafourche Parish, which fought at Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Wellington married Eglantine, daughter of fellow Acadian Paul Thibodeaux, at the Raceland church, Lafourche Parish, in January 1869. 

Charles died in Lafourche Parish in February 1870.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial said that Charles died "at age 23 yrs.," but he was 25.  He probably did not marry.

Louis-Gabriel HÉBERT (1775-?; Étienne, Antoine le jeune, Jean)

Louis-Gabriel, called Gabriel, third son of Étienne Hébert and his first wife Marie Lavergne, born at Cenan, Poitou, France, in February 1775, came to Louisiana with his father, stepmother, and siblings aboard L'Amitié, the fifth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  One wonders if Louis-Gabriel ever married.  

Descendants of Jean-Joseph HÉBERT (1771-; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc, Jean)

Jean-Joseph, also called Jean-Baptiste, eldest son of Jean-Baptist Hébert and Anne-Josèphe Dugas, born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in April 1771, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche, where Jean-Joseph married Marie-Madeleine, called Madeleine, daughter of fellow Acadian Jean-Baptiste LeBlanc, at Assumption in April 1793.  Madeleine had come to Louisiana aboard Le Beaumont, the third of the Seven Ships from France.  Their daughters married into the Guillot, Mussau or Musseau, and Thibodeaux families.  Their only son settled down bayou in Terrebonne Parish.  Jean Joseph's succession record may have been filed at what became the Interior Parish courthouse at Thibodauxville in December 1806.  His only son married twice and had several sons of his own.

Martin, perhaps the fifth and youngest son of Jean-Baptiste Hébert and Anne-Josèphe Dugas, was born aboard Le St. Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  After his baptism at New Orleans, he followed his family to upper Bayou Lafourche, where he died either in the late 1780s or the 1790s, still a child.  

Joseph HÉBERT (1772-?; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques, Charles)

Joseph, son of Charles Hébert, fils and Marguerite-Louise Valet, born at St.-Suliac, France, near St.-Malo, in December 1772, came to Louisiana with a sister and a half-brother aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  In January 1788, Spanish officials counted Joseph with his half-brother Martin-Bénoni Pitre and Martin's wife on the upper bayou.  Joseph may not have married.  

Descendants of Louis-Jean HÉBERT (1779-; Étienne, Emmanuel, Jacques, Charles)

Louis-Jean, youngest son of Joseph Hébert and Jeanne De La Forestrie of Île St.-Jean, born at St.-Similien, Nantes, France, in June 1779, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Louis-Jean's father died soon after the family settled at Lafourche, and his mother remarried to a fellow Acadian exile from France, Sébastien Benoit.  Louis-Jean's mother died at Lafourche in the early 1790s, when he was still a boy.  His stepfather left the bayou and moved to the Calcasieu River area at the far western edge of the Opelousas District, near present-day Lake Charles, but Louis-Jean did not follow him or his siblings there.  Louis-Jean probably grew up with relatives on upper Bayou Lafourche, where he married Félicité Julie, daughter of fellow Acadian Martin Bénoni Pitre, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in November 1812.  Félicité had been born in Louisiana a few years after her family had come to the colony aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships from France.  Their daughter married into the Guin family.  Did Louis Jean father any sons? 

~

During the late colonial period, Héberts from France who had gone to river communities moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche and resettled near their many cousins already there:

Amable Hébert followed his children from Baton Rouge to the upper Lafourche, where he died in January 1816, in his 70s.

Ambroise Hébert, born in Acadia in c1730, and his wife Félicité Lejeune, whom he married in Acadia in c1754, were deported to France from one of the Maritime islands in 1758.  They lost two young daughters in the crossing to St.-Malo.  In France, they had at least 14 more children, nine of whom died in childhood!  Only one of them, a daughter, came with them to Louisiana, aboard La Caroline, the last of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  After a brief respite at New Orleans, Ambroise and Félicité settled most likely in the Isleño community of Nueva Gálvez, also called San Bernardo, along Bayou Terre-aux-Boeufs below New Orleans in present-day St. Bernard Parish.  Félicité may have died not long after they reached Louisiana, and Ambroise may have moved to Assumption on upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughter married into the Tardit family.  

Descendants of Pierre-Jean HÉBERT (1763-1827; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Jean III)

Pierre-Jean, eldest son of Pierre Hébert and his second wife Susanne Pitre, born at Ploubalay, France, near St.-Malo, in February 1763, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships from France, in 1785.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, where Pierre-Jean married cousin Anne-Marie, daughter of fellow Acadian Joseph Aucoin, in May 1788.  Anne, whose mother was an Hébert, also had come to Louisiana aboard La Ville d'Archangel.  After the Acadians abandoned Bayou des Écores in the early 1790s, Pierre-Jean and Anne moved to upper Bayou Lafourche.  Their daughter married into the Maillet family.  Pierre Jean died in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1827; the Thibodauxville priest who recorded his burial said that Pierre was 66 years old when he died, but he was "only" 64.

1b

Jean Pierre married cousin Azélie, daughter of Pierre Cedotal, at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in February 1833; Azélie's mother was an Hébert.  Their son Marcellin Pierre was born probably in Assumption Parish in 1833 but died at age 3 1/2 in July 1837.  Jean Pierre remarried to Eulalie Marie, another daughter Charles Templet and half-sister of his brother Rosémond's wife, at the Plattenville church in January 1836.  Their son Valéry Augustin, called Augustin, was born in Assumption Parish in December 1838, Sylvanie Adolphe in September 1841, and Joseph Octave near Paincourtville in May 1844. 

Augustin, by his father's second wife, married cousin Françoise, daughter of Élie Hébert, at the Pierre Part church, Assumption Parish, in January 1860.  Their son Joseph Léo was born near Pierre Part in December 1860.

2

Younger son Jean-Baptiste, born at Assumption in June 1794, may have married Céleste Azélie or Azélie Céleste, daughter of, perhaps, fellow Acadian Basile Prejean, in Lafourche Interior Parish in the late 1810s; church records make it difficult to determine which Jean Baptiste Hébert this may have been.  If this was them, did they have any children? 

François-Étienne HÉBERT (1767-1844; Antoine, Jean, Jean, fils, Jean III)

François-Étienne, second son of Pierre Hébert and his second wife Susanne Pitre, born at Ploubalay, France, near St.-Malo, in February 1767, came to Louisiana with his parents and siblings aboard La Ville d'Archangel, the sixth of the Seven Ships, in 1785.  François married Angélique, daughter of fellow Acadian Pierre Henry, at New Orleans in January 1786, soon after they reached the colony on the same ship.  They followed the majority of their fellow passengers to Bayou des Écores, north of Baton Rouge, before moving to upper Bayou Lafourche, where they were counted at Valenzuéla in the mid- and late 1790s without children.  François Étienne died in Lafourche Interior Parish in October 1844; the Thibodaux priest who recorded his burial said that François died "at age 83 yrs.," but he was "only" 77.  One wonders if he was a widower when he died, and if he and his wife were that rare Acadian couple who had no children.

In a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, an Hébert from the western prairies moved to Bayou Lafourche during the early antebellum period, but the line may not have survived:

Descendants of Jean Charles HÉBERT (1801-; Antoine, Jean, René dit Groc, Jean, Joseph-Ignace)

Jean-Charles, second son of Pierre Joseph Hébert and Anne Eléonore Comeaux of Ascension and Opelousas, born at Opelousas in February 1801, married Clarisse Melvina, called Clance or Clavie, daughter of French Creole Vincent Comardelle of New Orleans, at the Thibodauxville church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in October 1825.  They remained on Bayou Lafourche.  Did this line survive? 

Ange or Lange Jean Charles, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1828, died at age 2 1/2 in July 1830.

Other HÉBERTs in the Lafourche/Terrebonne Valley

Area church and civil records make it difficult to link many Héberts in the Bayou Lafourche/Bayou Terrebonne valley with known Acadian lines of the family there:

Victor Hébert married Acadian Jeanette Daigle.  Their son Jean Baptiste was born in Assumption Parish in September 1822. 

Mathias, son of Joseph Hébert, died in Lafourche Interior Parish a day after his birth in February 1824.  The priest who recorded the boy's funeral did not give the mother's name. 

Marie Cécile Hébert married François Nicolas Davie.  She died in Lafourche Interior Parish, age 30, in July 1824.  The priest who recorded her burial did not give her parents' names. 

Bertrand Hébert, also called Haubert, married Spanish Creole Célesie Navarre.  Their son Jean Théophile was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in July 1828.  Their daughter married into the Dugas family.  Was Bertrand an Acadian Hébert or a Creole Haubert

Rosalie Hébert, 24 years old, married 26-year-old Julien Benjamin Martin of Montréal in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in April 1830.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

François Hébert married French Creole Marie Rose Ayaux and settled in Lafourche Interior Parish by the early 1830s. 

Joseph Hébert married Acadian Rosalie Thibodeaux and settled in Lafourche Interior Parish by the early 1830s. 

Élise Hébert married Anglo American Henry Roddy in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in July 1833.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Joseph Hébert died in Lafourche Interior Parish in August 1836.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded Joseph's burial did not give his parents' names, mention a wife, or even give his age at the time of his death. 

Baptiste Hébert married Joséphine Courteaux and settled in Terrebonne Parish by the early 1850s. 

Euzalie, 16-year-old daughter of Louis Hébert and Mélise or Melina Hébert, married Raymon or Reman, 21-year-old son of Anglo American Antoine Luke, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in February 1851. 

Clotaire Hébert married Marie Morvant and settled in Lafourche Parish by the early 1850s.  Their son Valcour died in Lafourche Parish, age 16 months, in September 1855. 

Mrs. Hébert died in Lafourche Parish in January 1853.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial, and who did not record the good woman's actual name, the names of her parents', or the name of her husband, said that Mrs. Hébert died "at age 90 yrs."  Was she an Acadian immigrant?  If so, she would have been among the last of them to join our ancestors. 

An Hébert child, name and age unrecorded, died "during [the] yellow fever epidemic" in October 1853.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial also did not give the child's parents' names. 

Joseph Hébert died in Lafourche Parish "during [the] yellow fever epidemic" in November 1853.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial did not give any parents' names, mention a wife, or even give Joseph's age at the time of his death. 

Benjamin T. Hébert married Joséphine Celelie Borne and settled in Lafourche Parish by the mid-1850s. 

Charles, son of François Hébert, was born in May 1854 but died in Lafourche Parish, age 1, in July 1855.  The Thibodaux priest who recorded the burial did not give the boy's mother's name, so one wonders which François Hébert was Charles's father. 

Narville Hébert married Marie R. LeBoeuf.  His succession inventory record was filed at the Houma courthouse, Terrebonne Parish, in May 1857.  Who was he? 

Ozémé, son of Zéphirin Hébert, died near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in May 1858.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give the boy's mother's name, said that Ozémé died at "age 2 years."  One wonders which of the Zéphirin Héberts in the area was the father. 

Pauline Hébert married Mercle Gros in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in May 1859.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Susanne Hébert married William Stewart in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in August 1860.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

François Hébert married fellow Acadian Azéma Trahan and settled in Terrebonne Parish by the early 1860s. 

Joseph Hébert died in Assumption Parish in January 1862.  The Labadieville priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Joseph died at "age 24 years."  One wonders which of the Joseph Héberts in the area this might have been and if his death was war-related. 

Adèla Marie Hébert married Louis Gros in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in February 1862.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Clémence Hébert married Louis, son of perhaps fellow Acadian Janvier Guidry, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1862.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  Was she the Clémence, daughter of Esie Melet, who married Louis, son of Janvier Guidry, at the Lockport church, Lafourche Parish, in October 1863?  If so, this would have been a sanctification of their civil marriage.  And if so, where did the surname Melet come from? 

Louise Hébert gave birth to son Jean Orestille in Terrebonne Parish in September 1862.  The Houma priest who baptized the boy did not give the father's name nor the mother's parents' names. 

Aubert Hébert married fellow Acadian Rosa Pitre.  Their son Robert Willey was born in Terrebonne Parish in February 1863. 

Polite, also called Thomas and Charles, Hébert married Rosalie Terrebonne.  Their son Joseph Arramis was born near Lockport, Lafourche Parish, in March 1863.

Octave Hébert died near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, in March 1863.  The priest who recorded the burial, and who did not give any parents' names or even mention a wife, said that Octave died at "age 38 years."  Was his death war-related? 

François, fils "from Terrebonne Parish," son of François Hébert and Constance Breaux, married Azéma, daughter of fellow Acadian Augustin Trahan of Terrebonne Parish, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in May 1863. 

Achille Hébert married Marie Ismaine Boudreaux.  Their son Joseph Martin was born in Terrebonne Parish in December 1863. 

Helena Hébert gave birth to son Albert in Terrebonne Parish in February 1864.  The Houma priest who baptized the boy did not give the father's name nor the mother's parents' names. 

Olesi or Olymphe, daughter of Olésime, also called Lezin, Hébert and Delphine Derousse or Rose, married Joseph Aureline, son of fellow Acadian Charles Bourg, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in March 1864, and sanctified the marriage at the Lockport church, Lafourche Parish, the following month. 

Octavie Hébert married Achilles Thibodaux, probably Thibodeaux, a fellow Acadian, in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in May 1864.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Joachim Hébert married French Creole Azélie Calegan.  Their son Auguste Clodimir was born near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in October 1864. 

Joachin, probably Joachim, Hébert married Marie Mélanie Mars.  Their son Albert Outreille was born near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in July 1865.   One would hope that he was not the same Joachim Hébert who married Azélie Calegan

Joseph Hébert married Eulalie Hébert and settled near Chacahoula, Terrebonne Parish, by the late 1860s. 

Casimer, probably Casimir, Hébert married Élodie Daigle and settled near Paincourtville, Assumption Parish, by the late 1860s. 

Cleopha Hébert married Pauline Bergeron, perhaps a fellow Acadian, and settled in Lafourche Parish by the late 1860s. 

Émelia Hébert gave birth to son Telesphore Victorin in Terrebonne Parish in March 1866.  The Houma priest who baptized the boy did not give the father's name nor the mother's parents' names. 

Louise Hébert married German Creole Pierre Toups in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in June 1867.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Albert Hébert married fellow Acadian Mary Babin.  Their son Marcel Evariste was born in Terrebonne Parish in November 1867. 

Aglae Hébert married French Creole Olucien Cheramie in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in May 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Onésime Hébert married French Creole Delphine Cheramie in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Parish in May 1869.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names.  How were Onésime and Delphine kin to Aglae Hébert and Olucien Cheramie, who married at the same place on the same day? 

Mariani Hébert married Séverin Graps at the Plattenville church, Assumption Parish, in May 1869.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Denis Hébert married Leslie Boudreaux.  Their son Orville Jean was born near Labadieville, Assumption Parish, in May 1870. 

Rosalie Hébert married Antoine Telesphore at the Labadieville church, Assumption Parish, in June 1870.  The priest who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Rosalie Hébert married Singleton Thibodeaux in a civil ceremony in Terrebonne Parish in August 1870, several months after a son was born to them.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

Azélie Hébert gave birth to son Joseph Nicols near Plattenville, Assumption Parish, in October 1870.  The priest who recorded the boy's baptism did not give the father's name nor the mother's parents' names. 

.

Hébert families who lived in the Bayou Lafourche/Bayou Terrebonne valley during the early antebellum period cannot be linked by local church records to any of the other Héberts in the area: 

Descendants of Jean Baptiste HÉBERT (1790s?-; ?)

Jean Baptiste, son of perhaps Joseph Ignace Hébert and his first wife Anne Dugas, or of Pierre Jean Hébert and Anne Marie Aucoin, born at Assumption in either June 1790 or June 1794, may have been the Jean Baptiste Hébert who married Céleste Azélie or Azélie Céleste, daughter of Acadian Basile Prejean, in Lafourche Interior Parish during the late 1810s.  One wonders if he was the Jean Baptiste Hébert who, in 1816, donated land near Thibodauxville on Bayou Lafourche for a new church.  His daughters married into the Adam, Bernard, Delatte, Levert, and Roger families.  His older son moved to lower Bayou Teche after the War Between the States. 

1

Older son Jean Baptiste Célestin, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1820, married Marie Eulalie, also called Marie Zoe and perhaps Céleste, daughter of Philippe Vigneau, Vignaud, Vigneaud, Vignaux, or Vignon, also called Provost, in a civil ceremony in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1846, and sanctified the marriage at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, the following month.  Their son Bélisaire Derneville was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in December 1846, Hilaire in March 1849, Jean Philippe in December 1851, Henri Onésiphore in September 1853, Abel Thearne in March 1855 but died at age 1 in June 1856, a child, name and age unrecorded, perhaps a son, died in November 1856, Jean Baptiste, fils was born in January 1865, and Joseph Luke near New Iberia, on lower Bayou Teche, in September 1866.  Their daughter may have married into the Bonvillain family.  Their oldest son married on Bayou Lafourche but returned to the lower Teche. 

Bélisaire married first cousin Ernée or Émée, daughter of Hermogène Adam, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Parish, in May 1869; Émée's mother was Bélisaire's paternal aunt, Denise Hébert.  Their son Louis Jean Baptiste was born near Lydia, Iberia Parish, in May 1870. 

2

Younger son Neuville Alexandre or Alexandre Neuville, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1824, married Marie Adèle, called Adèle, daughter of Jean Baptiste Kerne of St. John the Baptist Parish, at the Thibodaux church, Lafourche Interior Parish, in February 1846.  Their son Alexandre Émile was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in November 1847, Simon Alfred in April 1849, Eugène in February 1855, and Numa in July 1857. 

Descendants of G. Maximin HÉBERT (?-: ?)

G. Maximin, called Maximin, Hébert married Mare Aimée, Émée, or Émilie Vicknair probably in Lafourche Interior Parish by the 1840s.  They settled in Lafourche Parish but were living in Terrebonne Parish by the early 1860s.  Their daughter married into the Thibodaux (French Canadian, not Acadian) family. 

1

Oldest son Maximin, fils was born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1846.  Did he die young? 

2

Maximin René, called René, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in January 1847, married Joséphine, daughter of French Creole Marcellin Bonvillain, at the Houma church, Terrebonne Parish, in April 1870; Joséphine's mother was a French-Canadian Thibodaux and kin to René's sister Félicie's husband, Edmond or Admar Thibodaux, a grandson of Governor Henry Schuyler Thibodaux

3

Paul Rémi, called Rémi, born in Lafourche Interior Parish in February 1849, died at age 2 1/2 in August 1851.

4

Félicien was born in Lafourche Parish in July 1853.

5

Jean Hilaire was born in Lafourche Parish in January 1856.

6

Arthur Adam, born in Lafourche Parish in April 1858, died at age 4 1/2 in February 1863. 

7

Joseph Webster was born in Lafourche Parish in November 1861.

NON-ACADIAN FAMILIES in LOUISIANA

Non-Acadian Héberts lived in colonial Louisiana decades before their Acadian namesakes appeared:

Sister Charlotte Ursule de St.-Xavier Hébert, an Ursuline nun, took charge of the convent's sick house at New Orleans in September 1734, seven years after the Ursulines came to the colony.  "It was not long before the [Ursuline]  hospital was transformed and the Nuns elicited the highest praise from officials for their faithfulness and efficiency." 

In 1741, the King's attorney in Louisiana "recommended that one Hébert pay a fine of 100 livres in favor of Sieur Feugere whom he had assaulted and insulted, and also 100 livres for repairs to the church at Pointe Coupée." 

In November 1774, Adrien Hébert dit Delaurier, 68-year-old native of Picardy, France, died at Charity Hospital in New Orleans.  He was a former gardener and soldier.  

.

During the late colonial period, two Hébert brothers from Burgundy and a kinsman, perhaps a nephew, settled near their Acadian namesakes in the Opelousas District.  One of the brothers married a fellow Creole, the other a French Canadian.  Typical of French Creoles in the Opelousas area, few of the brothers' descendants married Acadians.  One brother's line became a fairly substantial one:

Descendants of François HÉBERT dit Milan (?-?)

François dit Milan, sometimes called François Milani, son of Philippe Hébert, père and Marguerite Lambert of Martigny le Comte, Burgundy, France, married Marie-Anne, daughter of French Creole François Marcantel of Pointe Coupée, at Pointe Coupée in April 1771.  François and Marie-Anne lived for a time at Ouachita before moving to the Opelousas District, where they settled on Prairie Mamou, between bayous Nezpique and des Cannes, west of Opelousas.  They had at least four sons, three of whom created families of their own in St. Landry Parish.  

1

François, fils, born in March 1773 and baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest a few weeks later, married Marie, also called Polly, Morel or Morella probably at Opelousas early in the 1800s.  They lived for a time at Rapides, north of Opelousas.  Their son Hippolyte le jeune was born in St. Landry Parish in June 1807.  They also had sons named François III and Joseph.  Their daughters married into the Carpenter, Fontenot, Perrodin, and Voorhies families. 

1a

François III settled in Rapides Parish and married Anglo American Sarah Essex in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1824. 

1b

Hippolyte le jeune married Marie, daughter of Anglo American James Clark, probably at Opelousas in the late 1820s; Marie's mother was a Jeansonne

1c

Joseph married Anglo American Minerva Humphrey of Mississippi in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in April 1830.

2

Hippolyte, baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest, age unrecorded, in November 1775, may have died young. 

3

Joachim, born at Ouachita and baptized by a Pointe Coupée priest, age 3 months, in May 1781, married Émelie, also called Thérèse, Gagnard at Opelousas probably early in the 1800s.  Their son Joachim, fils was baptized at Opelousas, age 18 months, in October 1803.  Their daughter married into the Fontenot family.  Joachim, père remarried to Marie, daughter of French Creole François Fontenot of Mobile and Prairie Mamou, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in January 1811.  They settled on Prairie Mamou.  Their son Leufroi or Siffroi was born in St. Landry Parish in May 1812, and Cyprien in September 1820.  Their daughters married into the Humphreys, Manuel, Reed, and Rozat families.  Joachim, père's succession record was filed at the Opelousas courthouse in July 1823; he would have been 42 years old that year. 

3a

Joachim, fils, by his father's first wife, married Divine, another daughter of François Fontenot and his stepmother's sister, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1821.  Their son Denys or Denis was born in Lafayette Parish in June 1827.  They also had a son named Hippolyte.  Their daughters married into the Ashford and Vidrine families. 

Hippolyte married cousin Céleste Philippe, daughter of French Creole Philippe Fontenot, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in August 1849.

Denis married cousin Caroline, daughter of Acadian David Young (formerly Lejeune), at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1850; Caroline's mother, also, was a Fontenot.  They settled near Ville Platte, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish.  Their son Denis, fils was born in June 1851, Émile in August 1854, Aimé in July 1858, Ovide in August 1861, and Denis Armand in June 1866.

3b

Cyprien, by his father's second wife, married French Creole Eugènie Bordelon in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in December 1840, and sanctified the marriage at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in May 1842.  Their son Armand was born in St. Landry Parish in June 1846.  Their daughter married into the Landreneau family. 

3c

Leufroi/Siffroi, by his father's second wife, married Marie Élise, called Lise, 17-year-old daughter of German Creole Frédéric Miller, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in July 1832.  Their son Léon was born in St. Landry Parish in November 1835, Alphonse in December 1837, and Adolphe was baptized at the Opelousas church, age 2 1/2, in March 1843. 

Léon married Marie Cécile, daughter of Leufroi Miller, perhaps a cousin, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in November 1855, and sanctified the marriage at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish, in August 1860.  They settled near Grand Coteau.  Their son Joachim was born in December 1856.  Léon may have remarried to Louise Garrigues.  Their son Léon, fils was born in St. Landry Parish in October 1866. 

Alphonse married Célestine or Céleste, perhaps also called Lissie, another daughter of Leufroi Miller, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in May 1858.  Telesphore, perhaps their son, was baptized at the Ville Platte church, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish, "at age 2 mths.," in December 1869. 

Adolphe married Clémence, daughter of Anglo Creole Jesse Reed, in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1861, and sanctified the marriage at the Church Point church, then in St. Landry but now in Acadia Parish, in February 1868 (the Church Point priest called the bride Clémence Roy, not Reed). 

4

Joseph le jeune, born probably at Opelousas in the late 1780s, married Élisabeth or Isabelle, yet another daughter of François Fontenot, at the Opelousas church, St. Landry Parish,  in September 1816.  Their son Joseph Milan was born in St. Landry Parish in July 1817, François le jeune in April 1823, Léon in January 1828, Hilaire in January 1830, and Adolphe in July 1836. 

4a

François le jeune may have married Denise Miller.  Their son Achille was born in St. Landry Parish in May 1844, Alfred Darbonne in May 1855, Amédé in February 1857, and Ernest in July 1858.

4b

Hilaire married Melise Miller, perhaps a kinswoman of his older brother François's wife.  Hilaire and Melise settled in St. Landry Parish by the mid-1850s. 

4c

Léon may have married Louise Garrigues.  Their son Léon, fils was born in St. Landry Parish in October 1866. 

Descendants of Philippe HÉBERT dit Milan (?-1792)

Philippe Hébert, fils, also called Philippe dit Milan, son of Philippe Hébert, père and Marguerite Lambert of Martigny le Comte, Burgundy, France, Francois's brother, married Eléonore, daughter of French Canadian Joseph Roy, at Ascension on the Acadian Coast in July 1775.  Like his brother François dit Milan, Philippe dit Milan and Marguerite also settled in the Opelousas District.  Their daughters married into the Beaulieu (Bertrand) (French Canadian, not Acadian), Frugé, Guillory, and Mayeux families.  Philippe dit Milan's daughter Françoise, before she married Jacob Beaulieu in June 1803, bore a "natural child," daughter Louise or Arthémise, in September 1801.  Arthémise married into the Lahaye family.  Philippe dit Milan died at Opelousas in October 1792; the priest who recorded his burial did not give Philippe's age at the time of his death.  His only son may have perpetuated the line. 

Auguste, baptized at Opelousas in September 1789, may have died young, unless he was the Auguste Hébert who married Marcellite or Marcelline, daughter of Acadian Baptiste Lejeune, and settled in St. Landry Parish.  Their son Augustin, fils was born in January 1836, when Auguste would have been in his late 40s.  They also had a son named Paul, perhaps also called Paulite.  Their daughter married into the LeBoeuf family. 

Paul, called Paulite, may have married Marie Helen O'Connor.  Their son George Huston was born probably in St. Landry Parish in August 1853 and baptized at the Ville Platte church, then in St. Landry but now in Evangeline Parish, in April 1865, and William was born near Ville Platte in October 1855.  Paul married, or remarried to, Elina, daughter of Anglo American Thomas Cummings, at the Grand Coteau church, St. Landry Parish, in October 1859. 

Joseph HÉBERT (c1769-1819)

Joseph Hébert, born in c1769, perhaps a nephew of François and Philippe Hébert dit Milan, died at the home of kinsman Joachim Hébert, père, François's son who lived on Prairie Mamou, in May 1819.  The Opelousas priest who recorded his burial said that Joseph was 50 years old when he died.  He may not have married.  

.

Nancy Milan, probably a daughter of one of the Hébert dit Milans, married Anglo American Eli Clark in a civil ceremony in St. Landry Parish in July 1832. 

~

An Hébert, perhaps Foreign French, settled on the river during the early antebellum period:

Pierre, son of Rémi Hébert and Julie Martin of Nantes, France, married Dorothée, daughter of French Creole Jean Legros, at the Pointe Coupee church, Pointe Coupee Parish, in July 1810, 22 months after their daughter Yvanisse was born probably in Pointe Coupee Parish.  Pierre became a steamboat engineer on the Mississippi in the infant days of that form of travel (the first Mississippi River steamboat, Nicholas Roosevelt's New Orleans, made its historic voyage from Pittsburgh to New Orleans in 1811-12).  The job cost Pierre his life.  On 4 May 1817, he was killed in a boiler explosion aboard the steamboat Constitution at Pointe Coupee and was buried there the following day, only 27 years old.  

.

Several Foreign-French Héberts, including a small family, came to Louisiana during the late antebellum period: 

Louis Hébert, a 30-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Magnolia out of Le Havre, France, in November 1845.  He was heading to Missouri. 

Philippe Hébert, a 23-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Octavius out of Le Havre in April 1846.  With him was wife Élisabeth, age 22, and their 11-month-old daughter Maria. 

Jean Hébert, a 28-year-old clerk from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Caroline & Mary Clark out of Liverpool, England, in November 1850. 

Auguste Hébert, a 36-year-old farmer from France, reached New Orleans aboard the ship Devonshire out of Le Havre in February 1851.

~

Héberts who lived on the western prairies during the post-war period came from the family's participation in the South's peculiar institution:

Mary Anne Hébert, freedwoman, married Edmond Gholson, freedman, in a civil ceremony in Lafayette Parish in August 1866.  The parish clerk who recorded the marriage did not give the couple's parents' names. 

CONCLUSION

Héberts were among the first families of Acadia and some of the earliest Acadians to find refuge in Louisiana.  The first of them reached the colony from Halifax via Cap-Français, St.-Domingue, in February 1765 with the Broussard dit Beausoleil party and followed the Broussards to the Attakapas District.  Later in the year, still more Héberts came from Halifax and settled at Opelousas, north of Attakapas, and at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques on the river above New Orleans.  The following year, in 1766, two Hébert wives were the first of the family to reach the colony from Maryland; they went to Cabanocé.  In 1767, nine Hébert families arrived from Maryland and went to St.-Gabriel d'Iberville on the river above Cabanocé, settling on what became known as the Upper Acadian Coast.  One of these St.-Gabriel families produced a future governor and two future Confederate generals, another a state senator and a parish sheriff.  By the 1780s, substantial centers of family settlement had developed on the western prairies and along the Acadian Coast. 

Even if the Spanish government had not coaxed over 1,500 Acadians in France to come to Louisiana in the 1780s, the Hébert family would have been a large one in Louisiana, but the latter-day arrivals added substantially to the family's numbers.  The 1785 flood of immigrants from France included over 100 Héberts.  There were, in fact, more Héberts on the rolls of the Seven Ships expeditions than any other family.  Some of them settled on the Acadian Coast among their cousins from Halifax and Maryland, but most of them chose to go to upper Bayou Lafourche, creating a third center of family settlement.  During the late colonial and early antebellum periods, Héberts from the river joined their cousins in the Lafourche and Terrebonne valleys, and some of the Héberts from the river and Bayou Lafourche moved on to the western prairies.  During the early antebellum period, in a reversal of the usual Acadian settlement pattern, Héberts from Bayou Lafourche resettled on the river, but one of their cousins followed the usual pattern by moving from the river to Bayou Lafourche. 

By the eve of the War of 1861, then, Héberts could be found in nearly every corner of today's Acadiana.  On the prairies, they lived along Bayou Teche from Arnaudville all the way down into St. Mary Parish, and on the southwestern prairies in Lafayette, St. Landry, Avoyelles, Vermilion, and Calcasieu parishes, including the Mermentau River valley; they were especially numerous in Lafayette Parish.  On the river, they could be found on both sides of the Mississippi in St. James, Ascension, and Iberville parishes, farther up in East and West Baton Rouge parishes, especially on the west bank of the river, and even in Pointe Coupee Parish, where few Acadians settled.  In the Lafourche/Terrebonne valley, they settled from the Ascension/Assumption parish line all the way down into Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes, some as far south as the coastal marshes bordering the Gulf of Mexico.  They also settled in the Pierre Part area of Assumption Parish on the shores of Lake Verret.  After the war, more Héberts from Bayou Lafourche and the river moved to the western prairies, including Louis Hébert of Iberville, who had served as a Confederate general during the war.  At least one Hébert family from the Louisiana prairies was living in Jefferson County, Texas, during the late 1860s. 

Not all of the Héberts of South Louisiana were Acadians.  A French-Creole Hébert died at Charity Hospital, New Orleans, in 1774.  During the 1770s, two Hébert brothers from Burgundy lived at Pointe Coupée and Ascension before leaving the river.  One of them settled for a time at Ouachita in what is now northeastern Louisiana before joining his brother in the Opelousas District.  Some of them settled far out on the prairie near Ville Platte in present-day Evangeline Parish, others near Opelousas and Grand Coteau.  Few of their descendants married Acadians.  One of the brothers, François dit Milan, had three sons who created families of their own, but, despite their vigorous family lines, the numbers of these French-Creole Héberts remained small compared to their Acadian namesakes. ...

According to a recent study of Louisiana families with French and Spanish surnames, Hébert "is the most frequent surname of French origin, barely outnumbering Landry."  The study, published in 1986, counted over 6,000 households in the state bearing the surname Hébert.  Members of the family can be found in all parts of Louisiana, the study concluded, but they "have remained largely in the southern part of the state near areas first settled by their forebears."  This is especially interesting in light of the fact that more Acadian Landrys and LeBlancs than Héberts emigrated to Louisiana during the colonial period.  One wonders if the results of the 1986 study attest to a vigorous Y-chromosome in the Hébert family as well as to the number of freed slaves and their Afro-Creole descendants who kept the name Hébert after the War of 1861. 

The family's name also is spelled Eber, Eberd, Etbert, Heber, Heberd, Hever, Heverre, Hevert, Hiber, Hiver, Iber.

NOTES

01.  Wall of Names, 12 (p. 2L), calls her Agnès HÉBERT veuve BOURGEOIS, & lists her singly.

Do the editors of Wall of Names list her twice?  Is the Agnès HÉBERT dit Manuel listed with Joseph RICHARD on p. 24 (pl. 5R), with 2 children, a different Agnès HÉBERT than the widow of _____ BOURGEOIS?  See the footnote to Joseph RICHARD's profile for a discussion of this dilemma. 

02.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Alexandre HÉBERT; BRDR, 1a(rev.):89 (SGA-2, 151), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Alexandre HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Alexandre MELANÇON & Magdeleine HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:354, 696 (SGA-14, 13), the record of his second marriage, calls him Alexandro HÉBERT, calls his wife Maria Juana THIBODEAU, gives his & her parents'  names, says her mother's surname was illegible on the marriage document but was ACHÉE, that her parents were "of St. Charles Parish," does not mention his first wife, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Francisco VILLANUERA & Andrés MARTIN.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

His second wife, Marie-Jeanne THIBODEAUX, is not in Wall of Names.  The marriage record says her parents were "of St. Charles Parish," which could mean the Lower German Coast in LA or St.-Charles-aux-Mines, Grand-Pré, in Acadia.  The recording priest does not say her parents were Acadians, but it is almost certain that they were.  If they were from Grand-Pré, a likely scenario is that when they were young they were exiled with their families to VA in 1755, deported to England in 1756, repatriated to France in 1763, married in France, had a daughter named Marie-Jeanne there, & only she among her immediate family made it to LA, probably aboard one of the Seven Ships of 1785.  But this is only speculation.  She does not appear on any of the Seven Ships passenger lists, hence her absence from Wall of Names.  Her family does not appear in Albert J. Robichaux, Jr.'s studies of the Acadians in St.-Malo, Poitou, & Nantes, which could mean that they lived elsewhere in the mother country--Morlaix, Le Havre, La Rochelle, Lorient, Rochefort, Boulogne, Belle-Île-en-Mer.  They do not appear on any lists of the Acadians on Belle-Île-en-Mer found in Father Hébert's Acadians in Exile.  Father Hébert's volume also lists baptisms, marriages, & burials of Acadians in France not found in the Robichaux volumes, but Marie-Jeanne & members of her immediate family do not appear in those records either.  Sad to say, they could have been that perhaps not uncommon Acadian family who fell thru the cracks of extant church and civil records during Le Grand Dérangement (historians call it that for a reason).  There is also the remote possibility that, her family being from Grand-Pré, they may have been exiled to MD, not to VA, & Marie-Jeanne came to LA from MD in the late 1760s, as Alexandre did.  But where is she in the thorough documentation of those Acadians?  With her parents' names in mind, however, until I find evidence that proves otherwise, I will call her an Acadian here. 

03.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Alexis-Thomas [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 91-92, Family No. 170, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Alexis-Thomas HÉBERT, does not gives his godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Alexis-Thomas, son [Jean Bte HÉBERT's] fils, age 2, on the embarkation list, & Alexis-Thomas HÉBERT, his [Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT's] son, age 2, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 brothers; BRDR, 3:404, 821 (ASM-2, 90), his marriage record, calls him Alexos Thomas HÉBERT of the parish of St. Similian in Nantes, says his wife was from St. James, gives his & her parents' names, says that her father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan Luis GALLE & Joson HÉBERT.   See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45, 59, 91, 132, 178.

04.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him Amable HÉBERT, & lists him with 4 children & his stepmother, called Ester CORDNÉ, belle mère au dit; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 564-65; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84, Family No. 158, calls him Amable HÉBERT, says he was born c1742, that he was a carpenter, does not give his parents' names, gives his approximate marriage year & location, says his wife was born 15 Aug 1741, Parish of La Sainte-Famille of Pisiguit, gives her parent's names, says she died at age 38 & was buried 10 May 1780 at St.-Martin, Chantenay, France, gives the baptism & death dates of 2 of his children in France--daughter Marie-Jeanne, baptized 2 Mar 1778, St.-Martin, Chantenay, died 8 Jul 1778, Chantenay, & son Paul-Pierre, baptized 9 May 1780, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, died 19 Oct 1780, Chantenay--says that he, his wife, & "family of 7 persons," were in the convoy to Nantes in 1776, & details his passage to LA aboard Le Bon Papa in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him Amable HÉBERT, charpentier, age 43, on the embarkation list, Amable HEBERT on the debarkation list, & Amable HÉBERT, carpenter, age 43 on the complete listing, says he was in the 5th family aboard Le Bon Papa with 4 children & his stepmother, called Ester CORDNÉ, belle-mère du dit, age 60, on the embarkation list, not on the debarkation list (she debarked with the family of Amable's sister Anne HÉBERT, wife of Joseph LEBLANC, head of the 1st Family aboard Le Bon Papa), & Ester COURTNEY, step-mother of above [Amable HÉBERT], age 60, on the complete listing, gives him a birth year of c1746 taken from Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes (which actually says c1742) but gives no place of birth, gives his wife's name, says they were married c1761 but gives no place of marriage, says she died in 1780 at Nantes, & details his father's 2 marriages, stating that Amable was a child of the first marriage & noting that his father married his second wife, Esther COURTENAY, 8 Oct 1763, but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 3:404 (SGA-8, 77), his death/burial record, calls him Amable HÉBERT, gives his age, but does not give the names of his parents.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 58, 90.  

His estimated birth year taken from the age given in Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, cited above, conforms to the passenger list of Le Bon Papa, not the ages given in Hébert, D., p. 3, the Lafourche censuses of 1795 & 1797, or in his burial record, which makes him much older than he seems to have been. 

His wife's name also can be found in 2 of his daughters' marriage records in BRDR, 2:369 (SGA-14, 2), & 3:408 (SGA-14, 63).  

Why does the marriage record of his daughter Élisabeth/Isabelle, dated 6 Apr 1807, in BRDR, 3:408 (SGA-14, 63), say that both he & his wife were dead, when he did not die until 1816?  Was there another Amable HÉBERT at St.-Gabriel in his generation?  I have found no other Amable HÉBERT of his age in St.-Gabriel or in any other Acadian community in LA.

05.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Amand HÉBERT 2; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2511, says he was born in 1740; BRDR, 2:354 (SGA-5, 56), his death/burial record, calls him Amant HÉBERT, age 45 years, Husband of Élizabeth BABIN, & gives his parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 2.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Why does the marriage record of son Joseph, dated 18 May 1802, in BRDR, 2:363 (SGA-14, 39), call him Thomas?  Was this his middle name, or did the St.-Gabriel priest simply write down the wrong given name for the groom's father?  

06.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Amand HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:117, 324 (PCP-2, pt. 2, 184; PCP-4, 128), his marriage record, calls him Amant HÉBERT, calls his wife Marie BOUDROS, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph RICHARD & Joseph MELANÇON.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Why was his marriage recorded at Pointe-Coupée when there had been a church at St.-Gabriel since 1772?  Did a Pointe-Coupée priest do the honors at St.-Gabriel & record the marriage in his parish register?  Perhaps Amand & Marie were living on the west bank of the river in present-day western Iberville Parish in 1776, & a Pointe-Coupée priest from upriver was the closest one they could find.  Note that his wife's mother also was a MELANÇON, so they were distant cousins.  Marie also had come to LA in 1767, as a 12-year-old orphan.  If she was the Maria BODRO, orphan, with the Prut. François HÉBERT family at Georgetown/Fredericktown, MD, in 1763, they would have known one another from childhood; he was only a year older than she was, & he, too, was at Georgetown/Fredericktown in 1763. 

Amand and Marie were the paternal grandparents of Paul Octave HÉBERT, who graduated first in his West Point class of 1840, fought in the Mexican War of 1846-48, served as the youngest governor in Louisiana history up to that time from 1852-1856, and rose to the rank of brigadier general in the War Between the States.  They also were the paternal grandparents of Paul Octave's first cousin, Louis HÉBERT, another graduate of West Point (third in the Class of 1845) who served as a Confederate general. 

07.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him [Ambroise HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 93-94, Family No. 173, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Louis-Ambroise HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, does not give his godparents' names, &, calling him Ambroise [HÉBERT], details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Ambroise, son [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] fils, age 2, on the embarkation list, & Ambroise HÉBERT, his [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] son, age 2, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:489-90, probably his death/burial record, calls him Louis HÉBERT, "native of the city of Nantes in France, inhabitant of this [Grand Coteau] parish," does not give his parents' names or mention a wife, says he died "at age 42 years," & was buried "in the parish cemetery 'dans mon absence' (during my absence)."

08.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Ambroise HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 133, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, his father, age 47, & 4 of his 7 siblings--brothers Bazile, age 17, Jean-Pierre, age 10, & Isaac, age 8, & sister Francoise, age 14--survived the crossing, but his mother, age 42, & his 3 youngest siblings--brothers Rémy, age 5, & Timothé, age 1, & sister Pélagie, age 3--died at sea; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84-85, Family No. 159; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73; BRDR, 3:404 (ASM-3, 80), his death/burial record, calls him Ambrosio HÉBERT, "age 71 yrs., single of Acadia," & gives his parents' names but not his mother's first name.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:41. 

One wonders why he never married.  He certainly enjoyed attending weddings.  No one witnessed more of them than he did.  Was he a lay official with the parish church at Assumption?  Why else would he have attended so many wedding ceremonies?  In the record of one of these ceremonies, that of François AUCOIN & Madeleine COMEAUX, dated 29 Jun 1800, in BRDR, 2:34-35, 199 (ASM-2, 54), he is called Gregorio Ambroise HÉBERT.  Was Grégoire his first name?  Ambroise's younger brother Isaac studied for the priesthood in France under the notorious Abbé Jean-Louis LE LOUTRE.  Did Ambroise & brother Jean-Pierre also study under the abbé?

09.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Ambroise HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 106, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he & wife Félicité, age 20, lost both of their children--daughters Marie, age 3, & Tersile, age 1; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 447-48, Family No. 500; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 54, Family No. 105; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 85, Family No. 160.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2:38. 

Was he the Ambroise HÉBERT who married, or at least cohabitated with, Marie-Marguerite LEJEUNE probably at Assumption in the early 1790s and fathered a son, Pierre-Félix-Ambroise, by her?  See the boy's baptismal record, dated 13 Feb 1795, in BRDR, 2:372 (ASM-1, 37); the church record says that Pierre was born on 5 Oct 1794 & calls his parents Ambrosio HÉBERT & Maria-Margarita LEJEUNE.  This Ambroise HÉBERT, married to Félicité LEJEUNE, would have been about age 64 in 1794 and Marie-Marguerite LEJEUNE only 25, young enough to be his granddaughter, so it probably was not him.  Besides, Félicité LEJEUNE died in New Orleans in Sep 1792, & the priest who recorded her burial said that she was spouse of Jean-Baptiste SALIER, not Ambroise HÉBERT, so he probably died in the 1780s.  See NOAR, 5:240 (SLC, F2, 54). 

If this was not him, then which other Ambroise HÉBERT was it?  Ambroise, son of Ambroise HÉBERT & Marie-Madeleine BOURG, born in c1746, who never married?  Ambroise-Mathurin, son of Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT & Anne-Josèphe DUGAS, born in 1772, who married Isabelle-Madeleine GUILLOT at Assumption in 1796 or 1797, when Marie-Marguerite LEJEUNE was still alive & about to marry widower Joseph-François CHIASSON at Assumption?  Or was there a fourth Ambroise HÉBERT in LA at the time who is not accounted for in Wall of Names?  I would pick Ambroise-Mathurin, son of Jean-Baptiset HÉBERT, as the boy's likely father. 

10.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Ambroise-Mathurin [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 462-63, Family No. 518, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Ambroise-Mathurin HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Ambroise DUGAST & Rosalie HÉBERT, & that his family resided at St.-Suliac from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 56-57, Family No. 111, calls him Ambroise-Mathurin [HÉBERT], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, Family No. 91-92, Family No. 170, calls him Ambroise-Mathurin [HÉBERT], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Ambroise-Mathurin, son [Jean Bte HÉBERT's] fils, age 12, on the embarkation list, & Ambroise-Mathurin HÉBERT, his [Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT's] son, age 12, on the complete listing, says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 brothers, & that he was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:349, 354 (ASM-2, 22), his marriage record, dated 22 Nov 1796, calls him Ambrosio Maturino HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says all of the parents were from Acadia, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan GUILLAN & Bernard TERRIOU; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:263-64 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1822), his succession record providing for tutelage of his minor children, calls him Ambroise Mathurin HÉBERT m. Élisabeth GUILLOT, & lists his children as "Maria Magdalene 25 yrs. old m. Nicolas SEVIN, Rosalie Clémence 19 yrs. old m. August PICHOTTE, John Vincent 17 yrs., Oliver Marcelin 15 yrs., Théotiste 13 yrs. old, Ambroise Mathurin 11 yrs. old, Maria Estelle 8 yrs. old."

If he & Isabelle-Madeleine were married in Nov 1796, why is he still counted with his parents in the Lafourche valley census of Apr 1797?  The marriage record's date may be wrong.  It may have been 22 Nov 1797.  

He may have fathered an illegitimate son by Marie-Marguerite, called Marguerite, LEJEUNE in late 1794.  The boy, born probably at Assumption on 5 Oct 1794, was Pierre-Félix-Ambroise HÉBERT.  See the footnote to his mother's profile for a discussion of who the boy's father may have been, & the boy's baptismal record, dated 13 Feb 1795, in BRDR, 2:372 (ASM-1, 37), which calls the parents Ambrosio [HÉBERT] & Maria-Margarita LEJEUNE. 

11.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him André [HÉBERT], & lists him with his father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls him André, son [Amable HÉBERT's] fils, age 9 on the embarkation list, Andrés, su [Amable HEBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & André HÉBERT, his [Amable HÉBERT's] son, age 9, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 5th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with his father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings.  

Did he marry?  If not, why not? 

12.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Anne HÉBERT; BRDR, 1b:69, 86 (PCP-3, 280; PCP-4, 38), the record of her first marriage, calls her Anne-Marie HÉBERT, native of St. Charles, Acadia, which was Grand-Pré, calls her husband a native of Acadia, gives her & his parents' names, says both of his parents deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Simon RICHARD, ____ MISSOUNIERE, & Joseph HÉBERT (probably her brother); BRDR, 2:166, 355 (SGA-5, 31), the record of her second marriage, calls her Anne HÉBERT, widow of Joseph DUPUY, does not give her parents' names, gives her husband's parents' names, says they were of Province of Champagne in France, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre HÉBERT & Pierre ALLAIN; BRDR, 4:275 (SGA-8, 123), her death/burial record, calls her Marie Anne HÉBERT, "age 70 yrs., wid. BRUNTEAU," but does not give her parents' names.   See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; De Ville, St. Gabriel census, 1777, 10.  

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Her first marriage, though recorded at Pointe-Coupée, probably was at St.-Gabriel, which did not have a church of its own until 1773.  Priests from Pointe-Coupée administered the sacraments at St.-Gabriel, just downriver from Pointe-Coupée, until then.  

The age in her burial record is off by a decade, & her name may be backwards. 

13.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Anne HÉBERT. 

What happened to her in LA?

Her estimated birth year is based not on the age found in the passenger list of Le St.-Remi but on an average of the ages given for her in the Lafourche valley censuses.

Her brothers Joseph-Ignace & Jean-Baptiste & sister Rosalie's families were nos. 1, 4, & 7 on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi.  

Which Pierre LEBLANC did she marry at Lafourche in Aug 1790?  Thanks to the incompetence of the priest at Ascension, we do not know.

The birth/baptismal record of son Joseph BODIN, dated 6 Jan 1806, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:65-66 (SM Ch.: v.6-A, p.4), identifies her first husband as Jean Pierre [BODIN], "native of Nakitoches," son of Jean Laurence BAUDIN from Canada & Marie SAINTE CROIX from "'des adayes' (Spanish Post of Los Adaes, located some 15 miles from Natchitoches)."  Her stepfather, Sébastien BENIOT, settled near what is now Lake Charles, in the Calcasieu country, at the far western end of the Opelousas District.  See West, Atlas of LA Surnames, 25.  

22.  Wall of Names, 30, calls her Anne HÉBERT veuve BLANCHARD, & lists her with 6 children; White, DGFA-1, 156, calls her Anne-Symphorose HÉBERT, provides her parents' names & approximate marriage date, & the place & date of her husband's death; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 39, reveals that she & her husband, age 28, brother of Martin, & a niece, Marie BLANCHARD, age 13, perhaps Martin BLACHARD's daughter, survived the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, but that Anne's brother Charles, age 22, died at sea; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 16, Family No. 29, calls her Anne-Symphore HÉBERT, says she was born c1741, details her marriage, says that her husband was born c1731, a seaman, died at age 53, & was buried 2 Dec 1783, St.-Jacques, Nantes; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 16-17, calls her Anne HÉBERT, veuve BLANCHARD, age 47, on the embarkation list, Ana HÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Anne HÉBERT, widow BLANCHARD, age 47, on the complete listing, says she was in the 25th Family aboard La Bergère with 6 children, details her marriage, calls her Anne-Symphore HÉBERT, but does not gives her or her husband's parents' names or the place of their wedding, lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her family after they reached LA, says she owned 6 arpents of land but does not say when or where, & details her daughter Anne BLANCHARD's marriage in LA, including the names of her daughter's husband's parents, but does not give the place of marriage; BRDR, 2:355 (ASM-3, 3), her death/burial record, calls her Ana HÉBERT, age 54 years, widow of Josef BLANCHARD, gives her parents' names, & says they were from the Parish of Sts. Peter & Paul in Acadia, which was Cobeguit.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 27, 158. 

The estimated birth year used here is from the passenger list of La Bergère, the Lafourche census of 1788, & her burial record.  Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 16, probably got the birth year from her age in the Lafourche census of 1791.  See Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 158.

23.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Anne [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 2 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 87, Family No. 163, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Anne-Victoire HÉBERT, does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Anne, sa [Anne-Osite DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 4, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Anne HÉBERT, her [Anne-Osite DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 4, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 57th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:128, 367 (SM Ch.: v.5, #6), her marriage record, calls her Anne HÉBERT, calls her husband Joseph BROUSSARD, gives her & his parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the wedding, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Louis CHEMIN "bedo de cette église (sacristan of this church), Auguste BROUSSARD, Charles HÉBERT [probably her brother], Labarthe DE LISLE, & P. LAVERGNE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 5:274 (Laf. Ch.: v.4, p.24), her death/burial record, calls her Anne HÉBERT m. Joseph BROUSSARD, says she died "at age 70 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.

She died a widow, her husband having died in April 1828, in his early 50s.  She did not remarry and was, with her brother Charles dit Charlot, among the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

24.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Brigide HÉBERT, & lists her with her husband & no children; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 182, 564-65; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84, Family No. 158; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Brigide HÉBERT, sa [Jean-Charles LEBLANC's] femme, age 19, on the embarkation list, Brigida EBERT, su [Juan Carlos LEBLANC's] muger, on the debarkation list, & Brigide HÉBERT, his [Jean-Charles LEBLANC's] wife, age 19, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 6th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her husband & no children; BRDR, 6:308 (SGA-8, 277), her death/burial record, calls her Bergigue Joséphine HÉBERT, "age 86 yrs., wife of Charles LEBLANC," does not give her parents' names, & says she was buried "in St. Raphael's Cemetary[sic]."

For evidence that she & her family lived at New Orleans during the late 1790s, see the footnote to her husband's profile.  When did she move from New Orleans or from the upper Lafourche back to the Baton Rouge area, & why?  Was she a widow when she died at age 79? 

25.  Wall of Names, 9, calls her Catherine HÉBERT.  See White, DGFA-1, 827, for her birth, marriage, & death dates.  She was the 13th of 15 children borne by her mother.

26.  Wall of Names, 40, calls her Cécille HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 62-63, under Lista parcial de vientitres casamientos acadianos arregalados par Navarro, 20 novembre 1785 [Partial List of 23 marriages Navarro arranged on 20 November 1785], B. Marriages celebrated 2 Dec 1785, calls her Cécilia/Cécile HÉBERT, says she was in the 20th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi[sic], calls her husband Vincente/Vincent NEVEU, immigrant, &, calling her Cécilia HEVERT of Normandy, details her marriage, calls her husband Vicente NEVEAU of Ludaine in Tarhe(??)[sic], & gives her & his parents' names; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73.  

She & her family sailed on L'Amitié, not St.-Rémi

Where is "Ludaine in Tarhe"?  By calling him an "immigrant," did the compiler of the list of 20 Nov 1785 marriages mean to say that Vincent was not an Acadian?

27.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Charles HÉBERT.  The birth year used here is calculated from the Spanish report of 1767, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 2.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Did he marry?  If not, why not? 

28.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Charles HÉBERT. 

What happened to him in LA?

29.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Charles HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2515, says he was born in 1762; BRDR, 4:266 (SGA-8, 175), his death/burial record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, "age 67, gives his parents, but mentions no wife.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 2; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431. 

30.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Charles HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:347, 406-07 (SM Ch.: v.4, #10), his marriage record, calls him Charles HÉBERT "from Canada," calls his wife Marguerite GAUDRAUX, gives his & her parents' names, calls his mother Marie BLAIR, says his parents were "all from Canada, now of Iberville," that his wife's parents' were "of Canada," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Firmin BRO & Pierre ALAIN. 

The St. Martinville priest in 1787--Fr. Joseph Antonio Dias MASEDA-- should have known that both Charles & his wife were Acadians, not Canadians.  Being a Spaniard, was he ignorant of the difference between Acadians & Canadians?   And why did a fellow from "Iberville" marry someone from St.-Jacques & Ascension at Attakapas?  Acadian Coast censuses in 1769, 1770, & 1777 reveal that Marguerite was born probably at Cabanocé/St.-Jacques in late 1768 or early 1769, was taken to Ascension when she was still a girl, and followed some of her sisters & a brother to Attakapas when she was a teenager, so that explains how they hooked up on the Teche.  Her parents, who had been counted at Newtown, MD, in Jul 1763, had come to LA in 1766, the year before he & his family reached the colony, also from MD.  His father's family, though not his parents, also were counted at Newtown in Jul 1763, so the families probably knew one another well.  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 176; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 5, 14.  

31.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Charles HÉBERT, & lists him with Marie-Yvette veuve HENRY, probably his daughter, & her son Jean; White, DGFA-1, 835, calls him Charles HÉBERT, provides his estimated birth year, his parents' names, his marriage information, including dispensation "3-3 cons," & details of his sojourns from England to France & from France to LA; BRDR, 1a(rev.):92, his marriage record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, says he was 26 years old at the time of his marriage, that his father was deceased, that he & his wife shared consanguinity to the 3rd degree, gives her parents' names, says that her father was deceased, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Jacque LEBLANC (who signed), Francois LEBLANC (who signed), Béloni HÉBERT (who made his mark), Ignace HÉBERT (who made his mark), Paul BOURG (who made his mark), & Pierre LEBLANC (who made his mark), & the bride & groom made their marks; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 86, Family No. 161, calls him Charles HÉBERT, says he was born in 1722, gives his parents' names, details his marriage, says his wife was born c1721, that she died age 63 & was buried at St.-Jacques, Nantes, 15 Feb 1784; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls him Charles HÉBERT, laboureur, age 62, on the embarkation list, Charles HÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Charles HÉBERT, plowman, age 62, on the complete listing, says he was in the 14th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed daughter & a grandson, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA.

When did he die?  Where?

32.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Charles [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 2 sisters; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 86-87, Family No. 163, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, does not give his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls him Charles, son [Anne-Osite DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, age 5, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Charles HÉBERT, her [Anne-Osite DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] son, age 5, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 57th Family aboard La Bergère with his mother & 2 sisters; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B: 327-28, 370 (SM Ch.: v.4, #251), his marriage record, calls him Charles HÉBERT "of Nantes, France," calls his wife Geneviève GRANGER "of St. Landry of Opelousas," gives his & her parents' names, says both sets of parents were "of Acadia" & both fathers were deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Carlos Daniel FAGOT, Frédéric TENHOLT, Amand DUGAS , & Simon GRANGER; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 6:289 (Laf. Ch.: v.4, p.89), probably his death/burial record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, says he died "at age 79 yrs.," but does not give any parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 6:289 (Laf.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #912), his succession record, calls him Charles HÉBERT m. Carmelite LANDRY[sic]. 

His succession record gives the name of his oldest son's wife, not his.  His wife was his stepsister & a native of LA.  Was he a widower at the time of his death?  He was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors, as was his sister, Anne-Victoire. 

33.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Charles [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 57-58, Family No. 113, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, says he was the godson of Charles HÉBERT, paternal uncle, & Marie-Rosalie DE LA FORESTRIE, maternal aunt, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 92-93, Family No. 172, calls him Charles [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls him Charles, son [Joseph HÉBERT] fils, age 10, on the embarkation list, & Charles HÉBERT, his [Joseph HÉBERT's] son, age 10, on the complete listing, says he was in the 28th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 4 siblings, & says he was born in 1775 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:265, 370 (SM Ch.: v.5, #15), his marriage record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, calls his wife Pélagie DU MENIS, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Louis ARSENEAUX, Pierre LEBER, Louis CHEMIN, & Louis PORTEN; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 6:289 (GC Ch.: v.1, p.113), his death/burial record, calls him Charles HÉBERT, says he died "at age 82 yrs.," but does not give any parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 499; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161.  

He was buried by a Grand Coteau priest because Carencro did not get a church parish of its own until the early 1870s.  Charles was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

34.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Isabelle [HÉBERT], & lists her with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 564-65; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84, Family No. 84; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Isabelle, sa [Amable HÉBERT's] fille, age 14, on the embarkation list, Isabel, su [Amable HEBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Isabelle HÉBERT, his [Amable HÉBERT's] daughter, age 14, on the complete listing, & says that she was in the 5th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; BRDR, 3:297, 408 (SGA-14, 63), her marriage record, calls her Élizabeth HÉBERT, gives the names of her & her husband's parents, says that her parents were dead, that he was a native of Normandy, France, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Joseph DUPUIS dit Aubry, Joseph RICHARD, & Paul DAIGLE; BRDR, 3:408 (SGA-8, 71), her death/burial record, calls her Élizabeth HÉBERT, age 40, spouse of Mr. DUPLAN, a business man, but does not give her parents' names.  If the age given for her in her death/burial record was correct, she would have been born c1775, not c1771.

35.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls her Isabelle [HÉBERT], & lists her with her parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 93-94, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Élizabeth-Jeanne HÉBERT, but does not give her godparents' names, &, calling her Élizabeth, details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls her Ysabelle, sa [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] fille, age 9, on the embarkation list, & Isabelle HÉBERT, his [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] daughter, age 9, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 1st Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & 3 brothers; BRDR, 2:114, 358 (ASM-2, 46), her marriage record, calls her Élisabeth HÉBERT, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says all of the parents were from Acadia, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Étienne BOUDRAU & Ambrosio HÉBERT.  

36.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Isabelle HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 1.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:38; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 22-24, Family No. 31; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 56, 86, 137. 

Her estimated birth year is a compromise of the ages given on the passenger lists of one of the Five Ships of 1758-59 & La Ville d'Archangel & the Lafourche censuses of 1795, 1797, & 1798.  

For a possible view of her & her immediated family, see De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2:38.

37.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Étienne HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2512, says he was born in 1744; BRDR, 1a:93 (SGA-3, 28a), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Estienne HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Estienne MELANSON & Marie Joseph BOURG; BRDR, 2:359, 435 (SJA-1, 43a), his marriage record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, calls his wife Magdelaine LANDRIS, give his & her parents' names, says "both parties Acadians," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Josephe RICHARD & Joseph LANDRI; BRDR, 4:268 (SGA-8, 103), probably his death/burial record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, "age 83," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 2. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

38.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls him Étienne [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 6 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 90, Family No. 168, his baptismal record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, says his father died "at 'les Hauts Pavée," St.-Similien, Nantes, "at the age of 52 years" on 22 Jul 1784, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Étienne, son [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] son, a nursling, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed mother & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:266, 454 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Mar. v.1, #1), his first marriage record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, calls him wife Clémence ROBISHAU, but gives no parents' names nor any witnesses; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 4:321 (Raceland Ch.: Orig. Bk., p. 153, #178), his death/burial record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, says he died "at age 83 yrs.," but does not give any parents' names or mention a wife.

It was amazing that he survived the passage from France to LA at such a young age, especially considering how many of his fellow passengers died on the voyage or soon after reaching the colony. 

He was living with the family of sister Marie during the mid- & late 1790s because his mother had died at Assumption in Oct 1793, when he was only about 8 years old. 

He died at age 79, not 83, & was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

39.  Wall of Names, 40 (pl. 10R), calls him Étienne HÉBERT, & lists him with his third wife & 5 children; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 55, Family No. 108, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, says he was born in c1746 "in the parish of Ste.-Anne in Acadie," gives his parents' names, details his first marriage, calls his first wife Marie LAVERGNE, says she was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of the marriage, includes the birth/baptismal record of son Louis-Gabriel, baptized 20 Feb 1775, Cenan, godson of Gabriel SAUVION & Félicité HÉBERT (paternal aunt), & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 87-88, Family No. 165, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, says he was born in c1746 "in the Parish of Ste.-Anne in Acadie," gives his parents' names, calls his first wife Marie LAVERGNE, says he married her in c1767 "probably at LeHavre," that she was born in c1738 but gives no birthplace, died age 40 & was buried 12 Oct 1778, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, details his second marriage, calls his second wife Marie BOURG, says she was born in c1748 "in the Parish of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul of Cobequid in Acadie," gives her parents' names, says she died age 32 & was buried 28 Aug 1781, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, details his third marriage, calls his third wife Anne-Madeleine BRAUD, says she was born in c1749 "in the Parish of Ascension in Acadie," gives her parents' names, says she was "resident of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay for 3 years" at the time of their marriage, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter, by his first wife, Marguerite-Adélaïde, baptized 13 Sep 1778, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, son, by his first wife, Charles-Lazare, baptized 13 Sep 1778, St.-Nicolas, Nantes, died age 8 days & was buried 21 Sep 1778, Hôtel-Dieu, Nantes, & daughter, by his third wife, Marie-Madeleine, baptized 1 May 1785, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as it voyage to LA; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, marin, age 38, on the embarkation list, Estevan HÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Étienne HÉBERT, sailor, age 38, on the complete listing, says he was in the 31st Family aboard L'Amitié with his third wife & 5 children, details his third marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names, says they were married in 1781 but gives no place of marriage, that daughter Marie-Madeleine was baptized in 1785 but gives no place of baptism, & lists the implements the Spanish gave him after he reached LA; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:266 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: #14), perhaps his succession record, calls him Étienne HÉBERT, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

40.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Félicité [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 461-62, Family No. 517; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Félicité, sa [[Laure BOURG, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 13, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Félicité HÉBERT, her [Laure BOURG, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 13, on the complete listing, says she was in the 13th Family aboard La Bergère with her widowed mother & 3 siblings, & that she was born in 1771; BRDR, 2:316, 359 (ASC-2, 45), her marriage record, calls her Félicité HÉBERT, gives the names of hers & her husband's parents, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Simon MAZROLLE (her stepfather) & Jean ÉBERT (her brother); BRDR, 3:410 (ASM-3, 87), her death/burial record, calls her Félicité HÉBERT, age not given, married to Francisco Maria GAUTRAUX, gives her parents names.  

41.  Wall of Names, 47, calls her Félicité HÉBERT; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 2, Family No. 1, calls her Félicité HÉBERT, says she was born c1757 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, calls her husband Étienne-François ANGILBERT, says he was born c1753 but does not give is birthplace or his parents' names, says that he was a printer, provides the birth/baptismal record for daughter Marie-Adélaïde ANGILBERT, born 16 Jun 1785 on the rué de la Rosière, baptized same day St.-Nicolas, Nantes, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 505.

Why did the 1784 report in France call her husband "stranger"?  Because he was not Acadian?  

This family's settlement on upper Bayou Lafourche is based on the marriage record of daughter Marie-Adélaïde, dated 2 May 1805, in BRDR, 2:276 (ASM-2, 67), which calls her the daughter Maria ENGILBERT of St. Nicolas of Nantes, France, but says her father was Josef ENGILBERT, not Étienne-François ANGILBERT, perhaps a mistake made by the priest or by the copier, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Ambrosio HÉBERT & Pierre Louis CHIASSON.  For Félicité's husband's name, I am going with Robichaux & Voorhies, J., cited above. 

42.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Francois HÉBERT, & lists him singly; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508; BRDR, 2:360, 706, calls him Francois HÉBERE, gives his & his wife's parents' names, mentions no previous spouses, & says the witnesses to his marriage were André LEBLANC & Josèphe DUPUIS; BRDR, 2:359 (SJA-4, 13), his death/burial record, calls him Francisco HÉBERT, age 70 years, Husband of Osita LANDRY, & gives his parents' names.  See also De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 19. 

Judging by his & Madeleine's ages (36 & 38) at the time of their marriage, plus the age of his children in the St.-Jacques census of 1777, he must have been married before.  She may have been a widow as well at the time of her marriage to François despite the silence of their marriage record.  

43.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him François HÉBERT 2.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150. 

Was he the François Hébert who was forced to witness the destruction of his home at Grand-Pré on 8 Oct 1755, on the eve of deportation?  See Faragher, A Great & Noble Scheme, 358-59; "Winslow's Journal 2," p. 166; Book Three.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

44.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him François HÉBERT 3; BRDR, 1a(rev.):93, his birth/baptismal record.  

Why wasn't he listed with his parents & siblings at Fredericktown & Georgetown, MD, in Jul 1763?  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150.  According to Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 116, he was counted in Jul 1763 at Baltimore, where he was called François Eberd.  See also Jehn, p. 158. 

45.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls him François HÉBERT, & lists him singly; White, DGFA-1, 816, calls him François HÉBERT, provides his estimated birth year, used here, his parents' names, his marriage information but not his wife's parents' names, details of his residences,  dates, & ages in Acadia & France, his sojourns from Acadia to France & from France to LA, & his death/burial information; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 109, shows that on the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he lost his wife Isabelle, age 37, at sea, & half of their 10 children--son François-Xavier, no age given, died in the hospital probably at St.-Malo 14 Feb 1759 soon after they reached France, sons Isaac, age 5, Derial, age 4, & an unnamed son born at sea, all died at sea, as did daughter Isabelle, age 7--& that his surviving children were sons Olivier, age 20, Joseph, age 15, & Marcel, also called Jean-Martin, age 10, & daughters Ursule, age 17, & Tersile, age 12; Hébert, D., Acadians Families in Exile 1785, 4-5, calls him François HÉBERT, charpentier, age 72, on the embarkation list, Francisco EBERT, on the debarkation list, & François HÉBERT, carpenter, age 72, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 10th "Family" aboard Le Bon Papa with no one else; BRDR, 2:359 (SGA-8, 6, #23), his death/burial record, calls him Francisco HÉBERT, widower of Isabel BOURG of Acadia, does not give his parents' names, but gives his age, which provides a birth year close to the one given in White, followed here.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:40. 

The 8th Family aboard Le Bon Papa was that of Jean LEBLANC, François's daughter Tersille, & their infant daughter.  The 9th Family aboard Le Bon Papa was that of Alexandre DOIRON, François's daughter Ursule, & their 6 children.  So old François did not go to LA alone despite being listed singly on the ship's passenger rolls.  He had lost his wife way back in 1758-59 on the crossing to St.-Malo, & he never remarried.  When he died at St.-Gabriel in May 1787, less than 2 years after coming to LA, he was surrounded by children, grandchildren, & at least 1 great-grandchild, Jean-Marie TEMPLET, born 15 Nov 1786, son of granddaughter Marie-Rose DOIRON, Ursule's older daughter.  See BRDR, 2:686 (SGA-11, 17, #55), for the boy's birth/baptismal record.

46.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls him François [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 6 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 90, Family No. 168, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Prosper-François HÉBERT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, &, calling him François, details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him François, son [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, age 5, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him François HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] son, age 5, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with his mother & 6 siblings; BRDR, 2:360, 462 (ASM-2, 60), his marriage record, calls him François HÉBERT of Nantes, France, calls his wife Céleste LE BLANC of Ascension Parish, gives his & her parents' names, says his father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Juan DUGAT & Ambroise HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:410 (ASM-3, 80), his death/burial record, calls him Francisco HÉBERT, age 33 yrs. of St. Similiano parish, Nantes, widower of Céleste LEBLANC, & gives his parents' names; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:267 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1813), his succession inventory record, calls him François HÉBERT m. Céleste LEBLANC, but does not give his parents' names.    

47.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him François HÉBERT; NOAR, 4:115, 161 (SLC, M5, 44), his marriage record, calls him Francisco HIBERT, "native of Pruvale [sic, actually Ploubalay], Diocese of St.-Malo in France," calls his wife Angela ENRRIQUE, gives his & her parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:408, 419 (NO Ch.: v.2, p.44, #109), a copy of his marriage record, calls him Francisco HÉBERT, "native of Purvale, Diocese of St.-Malo," calls his wife Angela ENRRIQUE (HENRY), gives his & her parents names, but gives to witnesses to his marriage; Hébert, D., South LA Records (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #155), his death/burial record, calls him François HÉBERT m. Angélique HENRY, says he died "at age 83 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 59, 92, 134.

As his marriage record shows, his actual birthplace, Ploubalay, was near St.-Malo, Brittany, France. 

His wife was a native of La Moysias, Pleurtuit, another suburb of St.-Malo, & was 3 1/2 years older than he was.  Did they have any children?  I have found no children's' baptismal records for this couple in the local church records. 

Was he a widower when he died at age 77? 

48.  Not in Wall of Names.  Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 104, calls him Franco HÉBERT, includes him on a list entitled "Names with no reference on the embarkation list," lists him singly, & says he received from the Spanish on arrival 1 each of axe, hatchet, hoe, knife, large knife, & 2 shovels; BRDR, 2:359-60 (SJO-4, 23), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Francisco HÉBERT, age 56 years, of this colony, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  

Was he a stowaway on La Ville d'Archangel?  The list he was on seems to point that way.  See De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2:40, for his possible presence in the French Maritimes with his family. 

49.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Françoise HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:371 (SM Ch.: v.4, #632), her death/burial record, calls her Françoise HÉBERT, wid. of dec. Joseph HÉBERT of La fausse pointe, does not give her parents' names, says she died at her residence, & that she was 66 years old at the time of her burial.  

50.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Françoise [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 461-62, Family No. 517; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Françoise, sa [ [Laure BOURG, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 11, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Françoise HÉBERT, her [Laure BOURG, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 11, on the complete listing, says s he was in the 13th Family aboard La Bergère with her widowed mother & 3 siblings, & that she was born in 1774; BRDR, 2:359, 426 (ASM-2, 24), her marriage record, calls her Francisca HÉBERT, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says his mother was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Simon MAZROLLE (her stepfather) & Calliste LANDRY (his brother); BRDR, 8:282 (ASM-10, 161), her death/burial record, calls her Françoise HÉBERT, "age 85 years, wife of Grégoire LANDRY," but does not give her parents' names.

Her husband was born in LA c1773.  See the Ascension census of 1777 in Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 14, which says he was age 4 that year.  His family had come to LA in 1766 from MD & moved on to upper Bayou Lafourche.  

She was a widow & "only" 82 when she died; her husband had died in Assumption Parish in Jan 1849, in his late 70s.  She was one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

51.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Françoise HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 124, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, she, her husband, & their only child at the time survived; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 484-85, Family No. 541.

There is the possibility that her family did not go to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship but went straight to Baton Rouge/Manchac from New Orleans. 

52.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Gabriel HÉBERT; Robichaux, Acadian in Châtellerault, 55, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Louis-Gabriel HÉBERT; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 88, calls him Louis-Gabriel HÉBERT & Louis HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 33, 65, 102, 165.

What happened to him in LA?

53.  Wall of Names, 15, calls her Geneviève HÉBERT.

54.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Geneviève HÉBERT. 

Her connection to her parents can be found in the Spanish report of 1767, from which her birth year is calculated.  See Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 178; BRDR, 2:247, 360; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1777, 23; Hebert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:238-40, 2-A:225-29; Wall of Names; West, Atlas of LA Surnames, 56-57.  

55.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Geneviève [HÉBERT], & lists her with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 564-65; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Geneviève, sa [Amable HÉBERT's] fille, age 17, on the embarkation list, Genoveva, su [Amable HEBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Geneviève HÉBERT, his [Amable HÉBERT's] daughter, age 17, on the complete listing, & says that she was in the 5th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings.  

What happened to her in LA?

56.  Wall of Names, 47, calls her Gertrude HÉBERT; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 85, Family No. 160.

57.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Guillaume HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73; BRDR, 2:221, 360, his marriage record, calls him Guillermo Belloni EVERE (HÉBERT), gives no parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Louis DANTIN (the bride's father) & Esteven EBER (the groom's father).  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 33.  

The baptismal record of daughter Eugenia Reina in NOAR, 7:165-66, calls his parents Estevan HÉBERT & Maria LAVERGNE, so he was from the first of his father's 3 wives.  

58.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Ignace HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, says he died at St.-Gabriel in 1789; White, DGFA-1, 836; BRDR, 2:361 (SGA-5, 55), his death/burial record, calls him Ignace HÉBERT, age 55 years, & gives his parents' names.

His marriage at St.-Gabriel must have been one of the first ones performed there because the parish was founded in 1773.

59.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Ignace HÉBERT; BRDR, 1a(rev.):94; BRDR, 2:264, 361 (SGA-5, 28), his marriage record, calls him Ignacio HEVER, gives his & his wife parents' names, the name of her first husband, & says the witnesses to his marriage were "the parents"; BRDR, 2:361 (SGA-8, 15, #68), his death/burial record, calls him Ignatio HÉBERT, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

I have no doubt that the death/burial record cited above is his.  

60.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Isaac HÉBERT, & lists him with his wife & 2 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 133, shows the fate of his family in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, detailed in the footnote of his brother Ambroise's profile above; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 445-46, Family No. 99, source of quote about his priestly studies; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84-85, Family No. 159; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls him Isaac HÉBERT, imprimeur, age 32, on the embarkation list, Isaac ÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Isaac HÉBERT, printer, age 32, on the complete listing, says he was in the 45th Family aboard La Bergère with his wife & 2 children, details his marriage, including the his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, says son Rémi was baptized in 1782 but gives no place of baptism, lists the implements the Spanish gave to him & his family after they reached LA, & says he owned 6 arpents of land but does not say when or where; BRDR, 4:270 (ASM-3, 150), his death/burial record, calls him Isaac HÉBERT, "age 74 yrs.," gives his but not his mother's name, & mentions no wife.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:41. 

His marriage record, found in Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, calls him "a Gigant."  What does that mean?  His wife also was described as such.  Strange. 

"Mr. LE LOUTRE" was the famous Abbé Jean-Louis LE LOUTRE ("otter") who caused so much mayhem in Acadia/Nova Scotia during the early 1750s (the struggle between British forces & the Acadians from 1749-55, in fact, is called Father LE LOUTRE's War by some historians).  The British captured the abbé in the summer of 1755, on the eve of Le Grand Dérangement, held him captive on the Isle of Jersey for eight years, until the war was over, and then repatriated him to France, where he devoted the rest of his life, & much of his fortune, caring for the Acadians who had been sent there during the war.  The abbé died in Poitou in September 1772 while inspecting land for a proposed Acadian settlement.  As Isaac's profile shows, the abbé also devoted time & expense to preparing Acadian youth for the priesthood.  One wonders how many of these young Acadians remained at their priestly studies after the abbé's death. 

61.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls her Isabelle [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls her Isabelle, sa [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 13, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Isabelle HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 13, on the complete listing, says she was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & 6 siblings, & that she was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace.

Why is she still an "orphan" in Apr 1797 if she was married the previous Aug, unless the marriage date in BRDR, 2:375, is wrong & should be 1797 instead of 1796.

62.  Wall of Names, 18 (pl. 3R), calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, & lists him with HÉBERT cousins Jean-Charles, Joseph-Pepin, & Louise as though they all were siblings; White, DGFA-1, 812, calls him Jean-Baptiste (dit Cobit) [HÉBERT], gives his parents' names, details his marriages, including his wives' parents' names, says he was a widower at Opelousas in 1766, & that he was buried at St.-Martinville on 1 Aug 1783, no age given; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2507, the LA section, includes no Jean-Baptiste as one of Bénoni HÉBERT's sons; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:409, 757 (SM Ct.Hse.: OA-vol.2, #1), the record of his first marriage, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, calls his wife Rose THIBODAUT, gives his & her parents', calls his parents Antoine [HÉBERT] & Anne HORLEANS (probably ORILLON), "former inhabitants of Port Royal in Acadie," says her parents were "former inhabitants of la Rivière aux Canards," says the witnesses to his marriage were Antoine HÉBERT [probably his father], Anne HORLEANS [probably his mother], Pierre THIBAUDOT [probably his father-in-law], Marguerite TRAHAN [probably his mother-in-law], Alexandre BELLEFONTAINE, Jean DUGAS, Louis PETITPAS, Jean-Baptiste BOURGEOIS, Honoré MELANÇON, & Toussaint BLANCHARD, & that the Rev. P. MAILLARD, "pretre et grand vicaire du Diocese de Québec et missionaire pour les Francais et les Sauvages dans l'Amerique, presided at the wedding but gives no place of marriage; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:409 (SM Ch.: v.2, #121), his death/burial record, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT "of Vermillon" but does not gives his parents' names nor mention a wife.  See also Arceneaux, D. J., Attakapas Post in 1769, 7, 23, 37; De Ville, Attakapas Post Census, 1771, 11; De Ville, Southwest La. Families, 1777, 12.  

Most of the HÉBERT family heads who came to LA in the 1760s were in the fifth or sixth generation from the family's arrival in Acadia in the 1640s.  Amazingly, despite his age, Jean-Baptiste dit Cobit was a grandson of Étienne HÉBERT, one of the family's Acadian progenitors!  This was because Jean-Baptiste dit Cobit's father Antoine le jeune was Étienne's tenth & youngest child, & Jean-Baptiste dit Cobit was his father's eighteenth & youngest child by a second wife. 

Where in Acadia were he & his first wife married?  When, & where, did she die?  She did not make it to LA. 

Arsenault, 2510, the LA section, says this Jean-Baptiste was the son of Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT & Claire ROBICHAUX, but these were his second wife Théotiste's parents.  Wall of Names, 18, includes a Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT with Joseph-Pepin, Louise, and Jean-Charles HÉBERT, the same people listed with this Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT and his unnamed wife in the Attakapas censuses of 1769 & 1771.  Neither census states the relationship between Jean-Baptiste & Joseph-Pepin et al.  They were cousins, not siblings.  The fact that Joseph-Pepin & Louise were at La Pointe on Bayou Teche in Apr 1766 & Jean-Baptiste was at Opelousas in Apr 1766 hints that they did not come to LA in 1765 in the same party of immigrants, as the Wall of Names's listing would have you believe.  The Wall of Names listing is probably based on the 1771 census--6 years after these 4 HÉBERT kinsmen reached the colony.  Jean-Charles, in fact, came to LA in 1765, but did not go to either Attakapas or Opelousas; he went to Cabanocé with the family of Joseph dit Pepin HÉBERT .  Joseph dit Pepin (not to be confused with Jean-Charles's brother, Joseph-Pepin) was the brother of Théotiste-Marie, who married Jean-Baptiste.  

Arsenault, 2510, also says Jean-Baptiste & Théotiste-Marie were married in c1768, but the Cabanocé census of 1769 shows her as still unmarried & living with her widowed mother. 

63.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2512, says he was born in 1742; BRDR, 1a(rev.):95; BRDR, 1b:69, 86 (PCP-3, 280; PCP-4, 39), his marriage record, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says all of the parents were from Acadia & deceased at the time of the wedding, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph DUPUIS [his wife's half-brother], Simon RICHARD, & Joseph HÉBERT [his brother]; BRDR, 2:364 (ASC-4, 28), his death/burial record, calls him Juan HÉBERT, husband of Maria DE PUI of Iberville Parish, but does not give his parents' names nor his age at the time of his death.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 3.   

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

His marriage, though recorded at Pointe-Coupée, probably was at St.-Gabriel, which did not have a church of its own until 1773.  Priests from Pointe-Coupée would have administered the sacraments at St.-Gabriel, just downriver from Pointe-Coupée, until it got a church & a priest of its own.  

For his wounding in Sep 1779, see Eric Beerman, "Victory on the Mississippi, 1779," transl. & ed. by Gilbert C. Din, in Din, ed., The Spanish Presence in LA, p. 199, which calls him Jean HÉBERT, says he died in 1798, & that his widow continued to receive his pension even after he died.  No other Jean HÉBERT fits this profile, so this must be him.  The other wounded man, according to Beers, was Mathurin LANDRY of Ascension.  These 2 men were, Beers says, Governor GÁLVEZ's only casualties in the entire campaign!  Since the militia suffered no casualties in the attack on Fort Bute at Manchac, and Fort Panmure at Natchez surrendered without a fight, HÉBERT & LANDRY probably were wounded in the fight at Baton Rouge on Sep 21.  Neither Petit Jean nor Mathurin LANDRY appear on Gov. Gálvez's militia rosters for the Lafourche & Iberville company in De Ville, Mississippi Valley Mélange, 2:52. 

64.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2511, says he was born in 1752; BRDR, 4:270 (SGA-8, 121), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Baptiste HÉBERT, "age 73 of Baton Rouge," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 430; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 10.  

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Daughter Genevefa (Geneviève's) marriage record, dated 21 May 1804, in BRDR, 2:411 (SJO-3, 41), calls him Juan Bta. of Baton Rouge.  Was this Baton Rouge, now West Baton Rouge, Parish, & not the city, which was in East Baton Rouge Parish?  

65.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT.  See also De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 10; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 434.

His estimated birth year is from the age given in the Spanish report of 1767, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777. 

What happened to him in LA?

66.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2511, says he was born in c1763; BRDR, 3:415, 499 (SJO-3, 157), the record of his second marriage, calls him Juan B. HÉBERRE, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls her parents Josef [LANDRY] & Ana Marta BLANCHARD, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Pablo LANDRIE & Dernon LEBLAN.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 432. 

67.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Jean HÉBERT frere [of Pierre], & lists him with his brother, sister-in-law, & 2 of their children; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls him Jean HÉBERT, frère du dit [Pierre HÉBERT], journallier, age 40, on the embarkation list, Jaun Bautista ÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Jean HÉBERT, brother of the above [Pierre HÉBERT], a day laborer, age 40, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 22nd Family on the embarkation list of Le Beaumont with his brother, sister-in-law, & 2 of their children, & in the 23rd "Family" on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont, listed singly, with the notation paso a los Atacapas, which means he went to the Atakapas District; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:372 (SM Ch.: v.4, #244), his death/burial record, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, "a single person, of Acadia," says he died "at age 58 yrs.," & gives his parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 499.

His estimated birth year is based on the age given in the passenger list of Le Beaumont, not his burial record.  His brother was born at Tintamarre, Chignecto, in c1739, so Jean probably was born there, too.  One wonders how residents of Chignecto ended up in France during Le Grand Dérangement.  Did they move to Île St.-Jean in the early 1750s & were deported from there to France in 1758?  If that was the case, wouldn't they have appeared on the 1758-59 British transport passenger lists?  He & his brother's family were among the few passengers aboard Le Beaumont who went from New Orleans to the Attakapas District. 

Why did he never marry?  Why not?  Sadly, his older brother Pierre's family line, except for its blood, does not seem to have survived in the Bayou State. 

68.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, & lists him with his second wife & a daughter; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 43, if this is him, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, & places him with the family of Pierre BOURG; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 57, Family No. 112, calls him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT, says he was born c1754 but gives no birthplace, gives his parents' names, calling his mother Anne BENOIST, says he was resident of Cenan, Vienne, France, details his first marriage, calling his first wife Marguerite MOULAISON, born c1749, gives her parents' names, says she was resident of Cenan at the time of their marriage, that she died at age about 30 years & was buried 23 Oct 1779 at Cenan, Vienne, & that he was living in the port of Paimboeuf by 24 Mar 1784 when he remarried but does not give the name of his second wife; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 92, Family No. 171, calls him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT, says he was born c1755 but gives no birthplace, provides his parents' names, calling his mother Anne BENOIST, details his marriages, says he married his first wife "after September 15, 1772" but does not give her parents' names, gives his second wife's parents' names, says she was born c1762 in the Parish of Saint-Enogat, diocese of Saint-Malo, provides the birth/baptismal record of daughter Anne-Marguerite, baptized 21 Jan 1785, Paimboeuf, but gives no godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 32-33, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, laboureur, age 32, on the embarkation list, Juan Bautista ÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, plowman, age 32, on the complete listing, says he was in the 10th Family aboard Le Beaumont with his second wife & a daughter, details his second marriage, calling him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT, gives his & his second wife's parents' names but no place of marriage, & says daughter Anne-Marguerite was baptized in 1785 but gives no place of baptism.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 524.

So what was it, Jean-Baptiste or Jean-Pierre?  I will go with Robichaux, a solid source, & call him Jean-Pierre here.  

If he lived at Cenan, Vienne, France, in the late 1770s, had he been a part of the failed settlement not far from there in the early 1770s?  Robichaux's volumes on the Acadians in France, cited above, do not put him there, so I will not put him there either.  Still, I have to wonder what an Acadian is doing in Vienne at that time.

69.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, & lists him with his wife & 4 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 23, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, his stepmother Véronique SIRE, age 27, died 30 Apr 1759 at St.-Servan, near St.-Malo, sister Marguerite-Blanche died at sea, & sister Marguerite-Tarsile died 10 May 1759 probably at St.-Servan, but his father, age 52, & 2 of his siblings, brother Joseph-Ignace, age 12, & sister Rosalie, age 14, also survived the crossing; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 56-57, Family No. 111, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, says he was born c1747, gives his parents' names, says he was a seaman & shoemaker, details his marriage but gives no place of marriage, gives his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Firmain-Joseph, baptized 13 Oct 1775, Leigne-les-bois, Vienne, godson of Jean-Pierre BOURG & Perpétué DUGAST, died age 4 days & buried 18 Oct 1774, Leigne-les-bois, burial witnessed by Pierre ROBICHAUX & Pierre-Olivier PITRE, "his uncles," & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 91-92, Family No. 170, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, says he was born c1747, gives his parents' names, says he was a seaman & shoemaker, details his marriage, gives his wife's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Alexis-Toussaint, died age 7 & buried 6 Mar 1776, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, daughter Anne-Marie-Augustine, baptized 28 Aug 1776, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, died age 8  mos. & buried 6 May 1777, Ste.-Croix, Nantes, son Simon, baptized 4 Apr 1778, St.-Similien, Nantes, daughter Marie-Jeanne, baptized 3 Mar 1781, St.-Similien, Nantes, died 14 Jun 1781 & buried probably St.-Similien, Nantes, & son Alexis-Thomas, baptized 21 Dec 1782, St.-Similien, Nantes, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Jean Bte HÉBERT, cordonier, age 35, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, shoemaker, age 35, on the complete listing, says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his wife & 4 sons, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, & says son Ambroise-Mathurin was born in 1772 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 3:412 (ASC-4, 139), probably his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, age 72 yrs., but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:269 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1819), his succession inventory record, dated 20 May 1819, calls him Jean Baptiste HÉBERT m. Anne DUGAS, & lists his children as Ambroise HÉBERT, Alexis HÉBERT, Eléonore HÉBERT, Constance HÉBERT, Josephine HÉBERT, & Jean Baptiste HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:269 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ.: Year 1819), his succession record, dated 22 May 1819, calls him Jean Baptiste HÉBERT, gives his father but not his mother's name, mentions no wife, & names future governor Henry S. THIBODEAUX[sic] as curator; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:269 (Houma Ct.Hse.: Succ. #8), another succession record, calls him Jean Baptiste HÉBERT m. Anne Joseph DUGAST, "Child listed: Jean HÉBERT, Heirs, grandchildren, listed: Léonora HÉBERT m. Jean Pierre GUILLOT, Constance HÉBERT m. Martin THIBODAUX."  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:116; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 45, 59, 91, 132, 178; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 505.

His estimated birth year is taken not from the Robichaux volumes on the Acadians in France but from an average of the ages given on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi & in the LA censuses in which he is found.  

His brother Joseph-Ignace & sisters Anne & Rosalie's families were nos. 1, 3, & 7 on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi.  

What was a "minor premise?"  

His succession records indicate that he must have compiled an impressive estate by his death in 1819. 

70.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:129, 356 (ASM-2, 14), his marriage record, calls him Bautista Olivier HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, her parents' names but says her mother was Ysabel LEBLANC, & says the witnesses to their marriage were Francisco HÉBERT & Carlos BOURQUE.

71.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Charles HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:396 (Laf. Ch.: v.2, p.102, #399), his death/burial record, calls him Jean Charles HÉBERT, "spouse of Magdelaine ROBICHAUD, says he died "at age 93 years," was buried the following day "in the church cemetery," but does not give his parents' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:327 (Laf.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #197), his succession record, calls him Jean Charles HÉBERT m. Magdeleine ROBICHOT.  See also Arceneaux, D. J., Attakapas Post in 1769, 23. 

His marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because sometimes in the early 1770s Attakapas had a church but no priest, & Opelousas did not have a church of its own until 1776, so priests from Pointe Coupée served as missionaries to the prairie communities. 

In those days, it was not unusual for family members to give recording priests the wrong age of their departed elders; there were no birth certificates back then, & the baptismal records of Acadians born in the old country were not available.  The older a person got, the easier it was for family members to exaggerate his/her age.  This family missed it by a mile. 

72.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Jean-Charles [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & no siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 185, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Charles HÉBERT, gives his parents' names & says of them actuellement sans habitation, & says his godparents were Jean-Pierre HÉBERT & Anne HÉBER; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 32-33, calls him Jean-Charles, son [Anne BENOIT, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, age 13, on the embarkation list, Juan Carlos, su [Ana VENOI, viuda ÉBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Jean-Charles HÉBERT, her [Anne BENOIT, widow HÉBERT's] son, age 13, on the complete listing, says he was in the 12th Family on the embarkation list & the 14th Family on the debarkation list of Le Beaumont with his widowed mother & no siblings, & that he was born 6 Jan 1772 but gives no place of birth; BRDR, 2:365, 440 (SGA-14, 43), the record of his first marriage, calls him Juan Carlos HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Gregorio MELANÇON, Juan Pedro HÉBERT (his godfather?), & Joseph ARNANDEZ; BRDR, 3:167-68, 413 (SGA-14, 75), the record of his second marriage, calls him Jean Charles HÉBERT, widower Francoise LANDRY, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Xavier RIVET, Auguste BARNIER, & Joseph LANDRY; BRDR, 3:413 (SGA-8, 56), his death/burial record, calls him Jean-Charles HÉBERT, age 40 yrs, but does not give his parents' or wives' names.

73.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Jean-Joseph [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 brothers; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 462-63, Family No. 518, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Joseph HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, says his godparents were Joseph HÉBERT & Marie DUGAST, & that his family resided at St.-Suliac from 1759-72; ; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 56-57, Family No. 111, calls him Jean-Joseph [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 91-92, Family No. 170, calls him Jean-Joseph [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Jean-Joseph, son [Jean Bte HÉBERT's] fils, age 14, on the embarkation list, & Jean-Joseph HÉBERT, his [Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT's] son, age 14, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 4th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 brothers; BRDR, 2:365, 472 (ASM-2, 1):, his marriage record, calls him Juan Joseph HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says all of the parents were from Acadia, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Ysaac HÉBERT & Ambrosio HÉBERT.  

74.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Jean-Louis HÉBERT petit fils [of Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT]; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2507, says che was the petit fils, or grandson, of the deceased Jean-Baptiste dit Manuel & his widow Claire ROBICHAUX, but does not give his parents' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:409-10, 667 (SM Ch.: v.4, #40), his marriage record, calls him Jean-Louis HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls his mother Magdeleine BRECHE or ROBICHAUD, says both his & her father were deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Francois LELEU, Philippe VERRET, Félix LOPES, & Jean ADANT.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 166, 176.  

The Cabanocé census of 1769 complicates things a bit by calling him the brother of Mathurin HÉBERT, when he should have been called nephew.  Jean-Louis's parents evidently did not survive Le Grand Dérangement.  His mother's surname is a problem.  The baptismal record of daughter Exupere, dated 12 Dec 1799, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:408 (SM Ch.: v.5, #196), calls Jean-Louis's mother Magdeleine GAUDEN of Acadia.  Is this GAUDIN/GODIN?  The baptismal record of son Philibert, dated 4 Nov 1802, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:379 (SM Ch.: v.5, #527), calls Jean-Louis's mother Magdeleine GAUDE.  Is this GAUDET?  The baptismal record of daughter Rosalie, dated 20 Jan 1807, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:380 (SM Ch.: v.6-A, p.13, SM Ch.: Folio E, p.33), calls Jean-Louis's mother Rose BLECH.  So which is it?

75.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Louis HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 185, his birth/baptismal record, recorded at Notre-Dame, Le Havre, France, calls him Jean-Louis-Étienne HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, says his father was a sailor, & says his godparents werer Louis ROQUEFORT, "uncle by law," & Marie HÉBERT, "his aunt and wife of ROQUEFORT"; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73; BRDR, 2:244, 365, his marriage record.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1777-98, 33, 52, 77, 129.  

The baptismal record of daughter Rosalia (Rosalie), dated 11 Mar 1804, in BRDR, 3:426 (ASM-6, 17), calls him Juan Luis of Havre de Grace.  Havre de Grace is another name for Le Havre. 

76.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls him Jean [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 461-62, Family No. 517, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Jean-Olivier-Marie HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, calls his godparents Marin BOURG & Marguerite BOURG, & says his family resided at St.-Suliac from 1759-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls him Jean, son [Laure BOURG, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, age 15, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Jean HÉBERT, her [Laure BOURG, widow HÉBERT's] son, age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 13th Family aboard La Bergère with his widowed mother & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:38, 364 (ASC-2, 10), his marriage record, calls him Juan HÉBERT, does not give his or his wife's parents' names, & says the witness to his marriage was Ambroise GARIDET.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1777-98, 27.

If he was married in Oct 1787, why was he counted in the Jan 1788 census with his widowed mother & his sisters, not with his wife?  Was he married in 1788, not 1787?

His daughter Marie's marriage record, dated 22 Apr 1816, in BRDR, 3:419 (ASM-2, 251), says that he was deceased at the time of the wedding.  

77.  Wall of Names, 40, calls him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT frere [of Ambroise]; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 133, shows the fate of his family in the crossing to St.-Malo, detailed in the footnote for his brother Ambroise's profile, above; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 84-85, Family No. 159; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73; BRDR, 4:271 (ASM-3, 179), his burial record, calls him Jean Pierre HÉBERT, "age 70 yrs.," gives his father's but not his mother's name, & mentions no wife.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:41

Why did he wait so long to marry?  His wife also was age 40 when they married.  They had no children.  His younger brother Isaac studied for the priesthood in France under the notorious Abbé Jean-Louis LE LOUTRE.  Did Jean-Pierre & older brother Ambroise also study under the abbé?

78.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT.

What happened to him in LA?

79.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Joseph HÉBERT 3.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 173; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 443; De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 7.

Wall of Names, 25, says that Joseph SAVOIE & Anne PRÉJEAN, Joseph HÉBERT's second wife, had a daughter named Marguerite; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, says that Joseph HÉBERT & his first wife, unnamed, had a daughter named Marguerite.  So the Marguerite in the 1777 St.-Jacques census could be either Marguerite HÉBERT or Marguerite SAVOIE.  The age of the child based on this census & the Cabanocé census of 1769, however, shows plainly that she is Marguerite SAVOIE.  

80.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Joseph HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2509, says he was born in 1740; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:, his death/burial record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT m. Francois[sic] HÉBERT, does not gives his parents' names, says he "died of 'una apoitema' (meaning is unclear; perhaps a stroke)," & says he was 57 when he died.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 249; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 166, 176; De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1777, 12.  

His estimated birth year is from the 3 censuses in which he is found:  Cabanocé 1766 gives a estimated birth year of c1740, Cabanocé 1769 of c1737, & Attakapas 1777 of c1738.  The age in his burial record seems way off.  

Quote from brochure that accompanies the Robert Dafford Mural, Acadian Memorial, St. Martinville.  His dit also is from this source, which says he arrived in LA in 1765.  

It is easy to confuse him with Joseph-Pepin HÉBERT, a younger distant cousin who also lived at Attakapas.  

81.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Joseph HÉBERT 2; BRDR, 2:362 (SGA-8, 24, #127), his death/burial record, calls him Josef HÉBERT, age 50 years of Acadia, spouse of Anna LANDRY, & gives his parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 6.. 

Was his wife's full name Marie-Anne?  See BRDR, 2:355-56 (SJA-1, 35).  

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

82.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Joseph HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, 2512; BRDR, 2:363, 417 (ASC-1, 136), probably his marriage record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT of Acadia, res. of St.-Gabriel but does not gives his parents' names, gives his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Olivier LANDRY & Mathurin LANDRY; BRDR, 3:414 (SGA-8, 87), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT, "age 68," but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 11.  

There were so many Joseph HÉBERTs in the St. Gabriel area that some of the data cited above may be misplaced.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

The first marriage record of son Auguste, dated 14 Feb 1820, in BRDR, 4:265 (SGA-14, 179), calls him Jean Joseph. 

83.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls him Joseph [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Joseph, son [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, manoeuvre, age 15, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Joseph HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] son, manual labor[er], age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with his mother & 6 siblings; BRDR, 6:313 (ASM-10, 43), his death/burial record, calls him Joson HÉBERT, "age ca. 63 yrs.," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a wife.

His dit can be found in the birth/baptismal records of at least 2 of his sons, dated 20 Jan 1806 & 25 Oct 1811, in BRDR, 3:410 (ASM-6, 89; ASM-6, 236), as well as his burial record.

If he was the Joseph HÉBERT who witnessed his daughter Sophie's second marriage at Assumption in May 1805, he would have still been alive at age 70.  The other witness to the marriage was future governor of LA Henry Schuyler THIBODAUX, then a member of the territorial legislature.

Was his middle name Ignace?

His wife also had crossed from France to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi.  Her family were humble Acadians from Île St.-Jean & should not be confused with the aristocratic DARENSBOURG family of the German Coast.  

87.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Joseph [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 468-69, Family No. 522, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Joseph-Marie HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Jean DE LAFORESTRIE, his grandfather, & Osite HÉBERT, his aunt; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 57-58, Family No. 113, calls him Joseph [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Leigne-les-bois settlement in Poitou in the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 92-93, Family No. 172, calls him Joseph [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as their voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls him Joseph, son [Joseph HÉBERT's] fils, age 11, on the embarkation list, & Joseph HÉBERT, his [Joseph HÉBERT's] son, age 11, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 28th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 4 siblings; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:410-11, 433 (Opel.

What happened to him in LA?

90.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Joseph HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:192 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #91), his death/burial record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT m. Marie THIBODAUX, says he died "at age 77 yrs.," but does not give his parents' names. 

The marriage record of daughter Marie Céleste, dated 20 Jun 1813, in BRDR, 3:419 (ASM-2, 213), says that she was "of St. John the Baptist."  Does this mean that Joseph & Marie-Victoire moved from Bayou des Écores to St. John the Baptist Parish, on the upper German Coast, above New Orleans, before moving on to upper Bayou Lafourche?  

91.  Wall of Names, 47, calls him Joseph HÉBERT son [Martin-Bénony PITRE's] frère; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 54-55, Family No. 107; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 87, Family No. 164. 

He, his sister, & his half brother are on the passenger lists of both L'Amitie & La Caroline, so evidently they missed the earlier ship & came over on La Caroline, the last of the 7 ships to cross to LA in 1785.  Why did they miss the first vessel?

What happened to him in LA?

His brother Jean-Baptiste & sisters Anne & Rosalie's families were family nos. 3, 4, & 7 on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi.  

His succession inventory in Aug 1806 doubtlessly was prompted by his remarriage the year before.  His date of death is taken from his burial record & his succession record of Sep 1821, not the succession inventory record of Jun 1822. 

93.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT neveu [of Blais THIBODAU], & lists him with his uncle, aunt, & 3 cousins; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 472, Family No. 529, calls him Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT, says he was born in c1752 but gives no birthplace, says his father was born in c1720 but gives no birthplace nor his father's parents' names, calls his mother Marie-Madeleine DAIGLE, says his parents married in c1745 but gives no place of marriage, says sister Marie-Marguerite HÉBERT was born 15 Oct 1746, St.-Charles-des-Mines, brother Olivier HÉBERT was born 6 May 1748, St.-Charles-des-Mines, brother Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT was born in c1749 but gives no birthplace, that he, his father, who was a widower, sister Marie-Marguerite, & brother Jean-Baptiste "disembarked at St.-Malo from England on May 22, 1763 from the ship, L'Ambition," that his family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72, & that on 7 May 1772 he received permission to go work at Morlaix; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 50-51, calls him Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT, neveu du dit [Blais THIBODAU], menussier, age 31, on the embarkation list, & Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT, nephew of the above said [Blaise THIBODEAUX], woodworker, age 31, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 36th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his uncle, aunt, & 3 cousins; BRDR, 2:315, 364 (ASC-2, 2), his marriage record, calls him Joseph-Nicolas HÉBERT, an Acadian, calls his wife Anne GAUTREAU, an Acadian, does not give his or her parents' names, & says that the witness to his marriage was Marin GAUTREAU (her brother); BRDR, 3:424 (ASM-3, 131), his death/burial record, calls him Nicolas HÉBERT, age 72 yrs of Acadia, gives his parents' names, calls his mother Magdelaine DAIGLE, but does not mention a wife.  See also Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1777-98, 42, 60, 94, 144, 174.  

None of his siblings seem to have made it to LA.  

Why did he wait so long to marry?  

94.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Joseph-Pepin HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:363, 706 (PCP-2, part 2, 110; PCP-4, 71), his original marriage record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT, calls his wife Magdelene TRAHAN, gives his & her parents' names, says all parents were "of Acadia," & that the witnesses to his marriage were MERCIER & Jean BRERARD/BERARD; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A: 410, 770 (SM Ch.: Folio A-1, p.10), copy of the marriage record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT "of Acadia, living at Attakapas," called his wife Magdelene TRAHAN, "native of Acadia, resides in Attakapas," gives his & her parents' names, says the witnesses to his marriage were Jean BERARD, GREVEMBER, GAIGNARD, & MERCIER, & that Fr. IRÉNÉE of Pointe-Coupée officiate. 

Where was he in 1769?  He does not appear in the Attakapas census of Dec of that year with his unmarried siblings, as he would in the Attakapas census of 1771.  See Arceneaux, D. J., Attakapas Post in 1769, 23; De Ville, Attakapas Post Census, 1771, 11. 

His marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because the Attakapas parish, though it was established in 1765, had no resident priest from 1766 into the early 1780s.  During that time, the Pointe-Coupée priest served as a missionary to the prairie settlements. 

95.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Julienne HÉBERT; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 472-74, Family No. 530, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Julienne-Périnne HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Guillaume GAUDU & Julienne LERON, & that her family resided at Tremereuc from 1765-72; BRDR, 9:262 (ASM-5, 143), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Julie HÉBERT, "age 78 year," but does not give any parents' names or mentions a husband.

Did she & her family go from New Orleans to Bayou des Écores with the majority of the passengers from their ship, or did they go from the city directly to upper Bayou Lafourche?  Probably the latter. 

If the burial record cited above is hers, she would have been 79, not 78, when she died & one of the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors.  Her husband died almost exactly a year later, age 84, & also was one of the last Acadian immigrants in the Bayou State. 

96.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Louis HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:464-65, 502 (SM Ch.: v.6, #52), the record of his second marriage, calls him Louis HÉBERT, "inhabitant at Vermillion, native of Halifax, widower of dec. Francoise BROUSSARD," says his wife was "native of this parish," gives his & her parents' names & her first husband's name, says her father was "inhabitant at La Pointe," & that the witnesses to his marriage were Joseph Fortune PENNE, Louis DUSOUCHET, Louis LINGOIS, Francois GUILBAUD, & Joseph SAVOIE; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:398 (Opel. Ct.Hse.: Succ.#473), his succession record, calls him Louis HÉBERT, père m. Marie Victoire GUILBEAU, but does not give his parents' names or mention his first wife. 

Why was his succession record filed at Opelousas?  Was he living near Grand Coteau, St. Landry Parish, when he died?  His second wife's succession record, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:398 (SM Ct.Hse.: Succ.#608), was filed at the St. Martinville courthouse the following Oct.  Strange. 

97.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls him Louis-Jean [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 92-93, Family No. 172, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Louis-Jean HÉBERT, gives his parent's name, does not give his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls him Louis-Jean, son [Joseph HÉBERT's] fils, age 5, on the embarkation list, & Louis-Jean HÉBERT, his [Joseph HÉBERT's] son, age 5, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 28th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 4 siblings; BRDR, 3:417, 698 (ASM-2, 202), his marriage record, calls him Luis HÉBERT of St.-Similian Parish in Nantes, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says both of his parents were deceased at the time of the marriage, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Joson HÉBERT, Juan BOUDRAUX, & Martin PITRE (probably his wife's father).  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 499; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161.  

98.  Wall of Names, 18 (pl. 3R), calls her Louise HÉBERT, & lists her with Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT, Joseph-Pepin HÉBERT, & Jean-Charles HÉBERT, as though they were her brothers; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:412 (SM Ch.: v.4, #22), her death/burial record, calls her Louise HÉBERT "of Canada" m. Claude BROUSSARD, says she died "at age 35 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.  See also Arceneaux, D. J., Attakapas Post in 1769, 23; De Ville, Attakapas Post Census, 1771, 11.

Was her name Élisabeth-Louise or Louise-Élisabeth? 

Sadly, the baptismal & burial records of her children, as well as her own burial record, fail to give her parents' names.  The best clue to their names is the marriage record of Joseph[-Pepin] HÉBERT, dated 25 Apr 1771, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:410 (SM Ch.: Folio A-1, p.10), which calls his parents Bellome [HÉBERT] & Jeanne SAVOIE; & the marriage record of [Jean-]Charles HÉBERT, Joseph-Pepin's brother, dated 27 Apr 1773, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:406 (SM Ch.: v.1, p.33, & Folio A-1, p.28), which calls his parents Bélloni [HÉBERT] & Anne SAVOIE/SAVOYE.  The Attakapas censuses of 1769 & 1771, as well as Wall of Names, cited above, hint that Louise was a sister of Joseph-Pepin & Jean-Charles. 

Where is her marriage record? 

99.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 9L), calls her Magdeleine HÉBERT, & lists her with her husband & no children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 44, if this is her, shows that on the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, she lost her husband Pierre BLANCHARD & sons Jean-Pierre, age 8, & Ambroise, age 4, at sea as well as orphan Joseph HAMON, age 6, & that she was the only survivor in her family; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Magdeleine HÉBERT, sa [Félix BOUDRAU's] feme, age 56, on the embarkation list, & Magdelaine HÉBERT, his [Félix BOUDROT's] wife, age 56, on the complete listing, says she was in the 19th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & no children, & details her husband's remarriage in Aug 1787 but gives no place of marriage; BRDR, 2:366 (ASC-1, 200b), probably her death/burial record, calls her Magdalena HÉBERT, but does not give her parents' or mention a husband.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 495.

It was typical of the priest at Ascension in the 1780s not to bother listing the names of parents in baptismal, marriage, or burial records.  

100.   Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Magdeleine HÉBERT, & lists her with her husband & 4 children; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 164, Family No. 295, calls her Madeleine-Modeste HÉBERT, says she was born in 1741 at Pigiguit, gives her parents' names, details her marriage, including her husband's parents' names, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Charles-Marie TRAHAN, died age 13 mos. & buried 1 Mar 1778, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & daughter Marguerite-Jeanne TRAHAN, baptized 29 Aug 1779, St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, died 23 Sep 1780, place not given but probably St.-Martin-de-Chantenay, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls her Magdeleine HÉBERT, sa [Jean TRAHAN's] feme, age 47, on the embarkation list, & Magdelaine HÉBERT, his [Jean TRAHAN's] wife, age 47, on the complete listing, says she was in the 42nd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her husband & 4 children, says son Jean-Michel [TRAHAN] was born 21 Aug 1764 but gives no birthplace, & daughter Marie-Louise [TRAHAN] was born 27 Aug 1768 but gives no birthplace; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:375 (SM Ch.: v.4, #316), her death/burial record, calls her Magdelaine HÉBERT of Acadia, m. to Jean TRAHAN, gives her parents' names, & says she was age 60 when she was buried.  

Son Jean-Michel TRAHAN was born at Morlaix in Aug 1764.  Two of her daughters, Marie-Louise & Félicité TRAHAN, were born on Belle-Île-en-Mer in c1769 & c1771.  The family probably was still on the island in the early 1770s when other Acadians in France participated in the Poitou settlement scheme.  

101.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT; BRDR, 6:314 (ASM-10, 70), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT, "age 86 yrs.," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a husband.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 430.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

What happened to her in LA?  Did she ever marry?  If not, why not? 

102.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-B:383, 492 (Opel.Ch.: v.1-B, p. 353), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT, "widow of dec. Jean Baptiste JANEAU, calls her husband Étienne FORET, "native of St. Malo in France," gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Jean FORET [his brother] & Joseph Maurice CORTIN; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:328 (Laf.Ch.: v.3, p.16), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT, m. (2) Étienne FORRET, but does not give her parents' names or her first husband's name.

What compelled her to move to the western prairies?  When?  Was it before or after she married her first husband?  She married her first husband probably in the 1770s because her daughter Marie-Barbe JEANNOT married in 1799.  See Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:433 (Opel.Ch.: v.1-A, p. 85), dated 7 May 1799, which spells Jean-Baptiste's surname JANOT.  Interestingly, Marie-Barbe married an HÉBERT who, like her mother Marguerite, was born in France.  The marriage record of Henriette JANNOT, "of St. Charles Parish of the Germans," dated 29 May 1796, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:432 (Opel.Ch.: v.1-A, p. 65), calls the father Jean-Baptiste of Québec & the mother Mary HÉBERT of Philadelphia.  Was this Jean-Baptiste JEANNOT's first wife?  Is so, which Marie HÉBERT was she?  Daughter of Ignace HÉBERT & his first wife Marie LEBLANC, who came to LA from MD in 1767? 

Marguerite's second husband was 17 years younger than she was.

What happened to son Joseph-Marthurin GAUTROT, who would have been only 12, almost 13, when she & her other children sailed from France to LA in 1785?  Did he die in France?  When?  Where?  

The Charles GAUTROT who crossed with her in 1785 was, despite the notation on the embarkation list of Le St.-Rémi & the Lafourche census of 1788, not her son but her grandson, oldest child of her son François-Hilaire GAUTROT.  See Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 344, Family No. 417.  

Son Pierre-Grégoire GAUTREAUX & his wife are above hers on the passenger list of Le St.-Rémi.  The family just below hers on the same passenger list is that of her dead husband's younger brother, Joseph GAUTREAUX.

When did she die?  Probably in the early 1790s, when she no longer appears in the Lafourche valley censuses.

105.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Margueritte HÉBERT veuve BOURG, & lists her with her widowed daughter & a grandson; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 49, shows that she & her husband lost 2 of their 4 children on the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, daughters Madeleine, age 7, & Anne-Dorate, age 4, & also François BROS, age 3, & Marguerite-Josèphe's brother François-Xavier HÉBERT, age 10, who died in the hospital probably at St.-Malo 3 Jun 1759, & that daughters Marie-Rose, age 11, & Marguerite, age 9, survived the crossing; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Margueritte HÉBERT, veuve BOURG, age 55, on the embarkation list, Marguerite ÉBERT, on the debarkation list, & Marguerite HÉBERT, widow BOURG, age 55, on the complete listing, says she was in the 11th Family aboard La Bergère with a widowed daughter & a grandson, details her marriage but does not give her or her husband's parents' names, & lists the implements the Spanish gave to her & her family after they reached LA.

Her middle name is from Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 5; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 126, 455.    

106.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her Margueritte [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 2 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 87, Family No. 163, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marguerite-Sophie HÉBERT, does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 24-25, calls her Margueritte, sa [Anne-Osite DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 2, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT, her [Anne-Osite DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 2, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 57th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & 2 siblings; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 3:328 (Laf.Ch.: v.3, p. 45), her death/burial record, calls her Marguerite HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, but mentions no husband. 

She followed her widowed mother & older siblings to the western prairies.  Did she ever marry?  

107.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Marianne HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:420 (SJO-4, 77), her death/burial record, calls her Marina HÉBERT, age 50 yrs., wife of Juan Batista HÉBERRE, but does not give her parents' names.

108.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marie HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2552, in a reference to Anselme MARTIN, calls her Marie-Théotiste HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:370, 521 (SJA-1, 45), the record of her first marriage, calls her Marie-Théotiste HÉBER, calls her husband Anselme MARTIN, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Cobequid in Acadia" & his were "of Acadia," & that the witness to her marriage was ___VERRET; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:414 (SMCt.Hse.: OA-vol.3, #163), the record of her second marriage, calls her Marie HÉBERT, native of Acadia, widow of Anselme ____, does not give her parents' names, but gives her husband's parents' names, says Philippe was from New Orleans, that his father was deceased at the time of the marriage, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Jacques TOUTCHEQUE, Joseph CARLIN, Mathurin HÉBERT, & Joseph HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-B:376 (SM Ch.: v.4, #234), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT of Acadia, m. to Philippe VERET, gives her parents' names, & says she was age 50 when she was buried.  See also Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 166, 176; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 249.

Why did Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT & Claire ROBICHAUX give two of their daughters the name Théotiste, one Marie-Théotiste, the other Théotiste-Marie?  The Attakapas census of 1777 shows clearly that they were separate women.  See De Ville, Southwest LA Families, 1777, 12, 14, families #62 & #84.

109.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marie HÉBERT; BRDR, 1a:86, 128 (PCP-3, 236; PCP-4, 20), the record of her first marriage, calls her Marie HÉBERT, native of Mines, Acadia, Canada, calls her husband Augustin MORIN, native of Port Royal (Puerto Real), Cadiz, Spain, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Joseph GIMENES, Ignace HÉBERT [her brother], & Athanase LANDRY; NOAR, 3:151, 163 (SLC, M4, 87), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria HUBERT, native of Grand-Pré in Acadia, widow of Agustin MORENO, calls her parents Pablo HUBERT & Margarita MENA[U/CE]SOU, calls her husband Antoine GUEDOY, a native of Île St.-Jean, gives his parents' names, including the confusing spelling, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Pierre HÉBERT [HUBERT] & Joseph MEU[ST/T]ON [MASON]; NOAR, 3:151 (SLC, B9, 278), the birth/baptismal record of daughter Maria Amelit, or Marie-Amélie, GUEDOY, calls her Maria HIBBERT.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

For her first marriage, see Brasseaux, ed., Quest for the Promised Land, 100, note 144, which says:  "Augustin MORIN (apparently a French corruption of MORENO), a native of Spain, married Marie HÉBERT, an Acadian, at St. Francis Church of Pointe Coupée on September 26, 1767," & cites the BRDR record.  What Professor Brasseaux is saying here is that the couple went from St.-Gabriel up to Pointe Coupée to be married instead of the Pointe Coupée priest coming to them.  This is supported by Orieta (commander at Fort San Gabriel) to Governor Ulloa, dated 23 Sep 1767, in which the commander tells the governor:  "Today, an officer, Alvamil (Aquis?) MORENO, leaves for Pointe Coupée to marry an Acadian girl."  Ibid.  One wonders what was the rank of "officer" MORENO. 

I have not found a family in greater Acadia named GUEDOY.  NOAR, vol. 3 gives the alternate spelling GUDUY & GUIDOY, but he probably was a GUÉDRY/GUIDRY.  There was an Antoine GUIDRY, born in c1754, son of Charles GUIDRY & Madeleine HÉBERT of La Pointe-a-la-Jeunesse, Île Royale, today's Cape Breton Island, who was deported with his family to St.-Malo, France, aboard the English transport Supply in 1758-59.  But how did Antoine GUIDRY get to LA by Jul 1780 when the rest of his family was in France until Aug 1785?  Was he a sailor who made his way to New Orleans in the 1770s & found an Acadian girl to marry, one who just happened to be from the same family as his mother?  He is not in Wall of Names, but he should be added to this list.  

110.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marie HÉBERT.

What happened to her in LA?

111.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 461-62, Family No. 517; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Marie, sa [ [Laure BOURG, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 17, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie HÉBERT, her [Laure BOURG, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 17, on the complete listing, & says s he was in the 13th Family aboard La Bergère with her widowed mother & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:100, 370 (ASC-2, 10), her marriage record, calls her Marie HÉBERT, does not give her or her husband's parents' names, says the witness to her marriage was Ambroise GARIDET, & notes:  "double marriage with Juan Olivier HEVERT & Natalia OCUAN"; BRDR, 4:274 (ASM-3, 181), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT, "age ca. 55 yrs., wife of Sulliac BLANCHARD," but does not give her parents' names.    

112.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls her Marie [HÉBERT], & lists her with her widowed mother & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls her Marie, sa [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fille, age 17, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] daughter, age 17, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with her mother & 6 siblings; BRDR, 6:314 (ASM-10, 38), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT, "age 75 yrs., widow of H[sic]ean Baptiste BOURG," but does not give her parents' names.  

She & her husband were born at St.-Servan 5 months apart, they were in the same convoy from Poitou to Nantes in March 1776, & they crossed to LA aboard the same ship, La Bergère, so they probably had known one another since childhood.  She was a widow for 30 years, her husband having died at age 46 in August 1813.  They had 4 sons, only 1 of whom married, but that son had no sons, and possibly no children, of his own, so the line did not survive.  However, at least two of Marie's daughters married, into the BARRAS & FELTEMAN families, so one wonders if Marie lived with one of her BOURG daughters during her final years.  Census and church records hint that, during her long life, Marie remained in Assumption, a life well-lived. 

113.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Marie HÉBERT veuve MOÏSE, & lists her with 2 children; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 146, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, she & her husband, age 27, survived the crossing & brought no children with them; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 632-33, Family No. 731, calls her Marie HÉBERT, says she was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says she married Joseph MOYSE in c1758 but gives no place of marriage, gives his parents' names, says he was born in c1732 but gives no birthplace, says he was a ploughman, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of daughter Anne-Marie MOYSE, born 25 Jul 1768, baptized next day, St.-Suliac, goddaughter of Bénonie MOYSE & Anne MOYSE, died age 1 on 11 Jul 1769, but next day, St.-Suliac, daughter Marie-Josèphe MOYSE, born & baptized 1 May 1771, St.-Suliac, goddaughter of Francois MOYSE & Marguerite BOURG, & son Joseph-Pierre MOYSE, born 26 Jun 1773, baptized next day, St.-Suliac, godson of Charles HÉBERT & Perpétué MOYSE, says she & her husband "disembarked at St.-Malo on January 23, 1759 from on of the 'Five ships,'", & that the family resided at St.-Suliac from 1759-72; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 137, Family No. 250, calls her Marie HÉBERT, says she was born in c1740 but gives no birthplace, does not give her parents' names, says she married Joseph MOYSE in c1770 but gives no place of marriage, does not give his parents' names, says he was born in c1742 but gives no birthplace, that he was a day-laborer, died age 37 & was buried 12 Jan 1779 at St.-Similien, Nantes, includes the birth/baptismal & death/burial records of son Jean [MOYSE], baptized 2 Jan 1777, St.-Léonard, Nantes, died age 4 & buried 5 Nov 1780, St.-Similien, Nantes, daughter Marie [MOYSE], died age 6 years & buried 31 Oct 1777, St.-Léonard, Nantes, & daughter Marie-Josephine [MOYSE], baptized 5 Jun 1779, St.-Similien, Nantes, details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement in Poitou of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 46-47, calls her Marie HÉBERT, veuve MOÏSE, age 43, on the embarkation list, & Marie HÉBERT, widow MOYSE, age 43, on the complete listing, says she was in the 23rd Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with 2 children, details her marriage but does not give her or her husband's parents' names or place of marriage, says he died in 1779 but gives no place of burial, that daughter Marie-Josephine [MOYSE] was baptized in 1779 but gives no place of baptism, & that son Joseph [MOYSE] was born in 1773 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 3:420 (ASM-3, 50), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT, age 66 yrs., wid. of Joseph MOYSE, but does not give her parents' names.  

114.  Wall of Names, 37 (pl. 9R), calls her Marie [HÉBERT], & lists her with her father, stepmother, a brother, a stepsister, & a cousin; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 463-64, Family No. 519, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Geneviève-Marie HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, says she was goddaughter of Jean RICHARD & Blanche LEBLANC, & that her family resided at St.-Servan from 1763-72; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 52-53, calls her Marie, sa [Joseph HÉBERT's] fille, age 22, on the embarkation list, & Marie HÉBERT, his [Joseph HÉBERT's] daughter, age 22, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 46th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her father, stepmother, a brother, a stepsister, & a cousin; NOAR, 4:70, 113 (SLC, M5, 41), her marriage record, calls her Maria ÉBER, native of St.-Malo, calls her husband Juan Pedro CULER, native of Nantes, gives her & his parents' names, calls her mother Margarita RICHAR, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Vicente LLORCA & Josef MARTINEZ.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth Century Louisianians, 499; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 47. 

She & her younger half-sister Sophie married on the same day.  

According to Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, & Wall of Names, Jean-Pierre CULAIRE/CULER did not come to LA aboard any of the 7 ships of 1785, much less aboard Le St.-Rémi, so one wonders how & when he got to the colony.  He & Marie may have known one another in Nantes before they left for LA because her family is found on a list of Acadians there in Sep 1784 who expressed a desire to go to LA.  Or maybe they hooked up after she reached New Orleans.  Her ship reached the city 9 Sep, but the passengers from their ship who chose to go to Ascension were not settled there until 16 Dec.  If they did not know each before she reached New Orleans, the fellow moved fast, for they were married less than a month after her arrival.

115.  Wall of Names, 39 (pl. 10L), calls her Marie HÉBERT sa mineure, & lists her with the family of Joseph BOUDROT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 68-69, calls her Marie HÉBERT, sa [Jh BOUDREAU's] mineur, age 12, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie HÉBERT, his [Joseph BOUDROT's] minor child, age 12, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 14th Family aboard L'Amitié with the family of Joseph BOUDREAU. 

Who were her parents?  How was she related to Joseph BOUDREAUX & his wife, Marguerite RICHARD?  Marie was not Joseph's stepdaughter; his wife Marguerite married only once, to him.  

Can someone tell me what in the world was a "minor premise"?  The term is found in Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 159, but it is not explained.  

116.  Wall of Names, 46, calls her Marie HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/Supply.htm>, Family No. 12; Robichaux, Acadians in St.-Malo, 3-4, Family No. 9.  See also De La Roque "Tour of Inspection," Canadian Archives, 2A:116. 

Evidently she & her family were among the few passengers from their ship who went from New Orleans straight to upper Bayou Lafourche instead of to Bayou des Écores.  How else to explain her family being counted at Lafourche in Jan 1788?

117.  Wall of Names, 43, calls her Marie HÉBERT.

118.  Wall of Names, 44, calls her Marie HÉBERT.

What happened to her in LA?

119.  Wall of Names, 46 (pl. 12R), calls her Marie HÉBERT, & lists her with her husband & 3 children; Arsenault, Généalogie, 1658; White, DGFA-1, 685; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 70-71, calls her Marie HÉBERT, sa [Louis GAUDET's] femme, age 54, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie HÉBERT, his [Louis GAUDET's] wife, age 54, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 24th Family aboard L'Amitié with her husband & 3 children.  See also "Fort Cumberland, 24 Aug 1763."

As the debarkation list of L'Amitié & the embarkation/debarkation lists of La Caroline reveal, she & her family sailed to LA on the later ship, not the earlier one.  

120.  Wall of Names, 46 (pl. 12R), calls her Marie HÉBERT, & lists her with her husband & 2 children; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 61-62, Family No. 120, calls her Marie HÉBERT, says she was born in c1748 but gives no birthplace, gives her parents' names, says her father was deceased at the time of her marriage, details her marriage, calls her husband Louis LAMOUREAUX called ROCHEFORT, says he was born & baptized 5 Oct 1742, St.-Pierre-du-Nord, godson of Claude OUDY & Marie CHIASSON, that he was a seaman, includes the birth/baptismal record of daughter Marie-Adélaïde LAMOUREAUX, baptized 23 Jun 1774, St.-Jean-L'Evangeliste, Châtellerault, goddaughter of Jean RENAULT & Marie POIRIER, his wife, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 70-71, calls her Marie HÉBERT, sa [Louis LAMOUREAUX dit ROCHEFORT's] femme, age 36, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie HÉBERT, his [Louis LAMOUREAUX dit ROCHEFORT's] wife, age 36, on the complete listing, says she was in the 22nd Family aboard L'Amitié with her husband & 2 children, details her marriage, including her but not her husband's parents' names, says they were married in 1763 but gives no place of marriage, & that daughter Adélaïde [LAMOUREAUX] was born in 1774 but gives no birthplace; BRDR, 2:166, 367 (SJA-2, 13), the record of her second marriage, calls her Maria EBER (HÉBERT), gives her & her husband's parents' names, says her parents were "of Acadia" & his were "of St. Moranberry," does not mention her first husband or his first wife, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Josef BURG & Isabel MUTON.  

As the debarkation list of L'Amitié & the embarkation/debarkation lists of La Caroline reveal, she & her family sailed to LA on the later ship, not the earlier one.  

She & her family were among the few Acadians from France who went from New Orleans to St.-Jacques. 

121.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Marie-Josèphe HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:368 (SGA-8, 4, #14), her death/burial record, calls her Maria Josepha HÉBERT, widow of Pedro LANDRI, natives of Parish of St. Charles in Acadia, but does not give her parents' names.  

This has to be her.  

122.  Wall of Names, 45, calls her Marie-Joseph[e] HÉBERT.

What happened to her in LA?

123.  Wall of Names, 47, calls her Marie HÉBERT sa [Martin-Bénony PITRE's] soeur; Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 54-55, Family No. 107, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Louise HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, says her godparents were Louis PINET & Angélique BRAUD, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 87, Family No. 164, calls her Marie-Louise HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, & details the family's participation in the Poitou settled of the early 1770s; BRDR, 2:369, 459 (ASM-2, 4), her marriage record, calls her Maria-Luisa HÉBERT, calls her husband Andrés LE BLANC, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of Poitou, France," & his "of St.-Malo, France," & says the witnesses to her marriage were Pedro LANDRY & Ambrosio LANDRY; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 3:269 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #703), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT m. André LEBLANC, says she died "at age 78 yrs.," but does not give her parents' names.  

Robichaux, cited above, says that her father, son of Charles HÉBERT & Marguerite LEBLANC, was born in c1740, a laborer & carpenter, that he married her mother, daughter of Louis VALET & Brigitte PINET, & widow of Paul PITRE, on 15 Jan 1770, at St.-Suliac, France, & that Marie-Louise had a full brother named Joseph & a half-brother named Martin-Bénoni PITRE.  She & her brothers are on the passenger lists of both L'Amitié & La Caroline, so they evidently missed the earlier ship & came over on La Caroline, the last of the 7 ships to cross to LA in 1785.  Why is the age given for her on both passenger lists so off the mark? 

She was a widow when she died, her husband having died in Jul 1848, in his early 80s.  She was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

124.  Wall of Names, 19, calls her Marie-Madeleine HÉBERT; BRDR, 3:417 (SGA-8, 76), her death/burial record, calls her Madeline HÉBERT, age 78, spouse of Athanase LANDRY, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 433; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 9.

Her estimated birth year is from the age given in the Spanish report of 1767, not the St.-Gabriel census of 1777, or the age given in her burial record, which seems too high.  

125.  Wall of Names, 18, calls her Madeleine HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2528-29, her husband's profile in the LA section, calls her Marie-Madeleine HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, & details her marriage at L'Ascension (Donaldsonville); Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:399 (Laf. Ch.: v.2, p.90, #264), calls her Magdelaine HÉBERT, "spouse of dec. Olivier LANDRY," says she died "at age 75 years," was buried "in the LANDRY Cemetery at Côte Gelée," but does not give her parents' names; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-C:399 (Laf. Ct.Hse.: Succ.#185), her succession record, calls her Magdeleine HÉBERT m. Olivier LANDRY, but does not give her parents' names.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 16.

Only Arsenault calls her Marie-Madeleine.  All other sources call her Madeleine. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

She & her husband had moved to the Atakapas District in the 1780s.  Her husband died in c1823. 

126.  Wall of Names, 40, calls her Marie-Magdeleine HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 72-73; BRDR, 3:151, 419 (ASM-2, 89), her marriage record, calls her Maria HÉBERT, calls her husband Antonio BOUTARY, gives her & his parents' names, says her parents were "of San Martin, diocese of Nantes," & says the witnesses to her marriage were Raphaël CROQUIER, Commandante of Valenzuéla, & Pedro LABAT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 3:269 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #243), her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT m. Antoine BOUTARY, but does not give her parents' names; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 3:269-70 (Thib.Ct.Hse.: Succ. #368), "decree approving family meeting," calls her Marie HÉBERT m. d.Antoine BOUTERIE, lists her children, but does not give her parents' names.  

Her husband came to LA aboard Le St.-Rémi, the fourth of the 7 Ships, in 1785, with his parents & siblings.  His father was not Acadian but a Frenchman from Querci who married his mother, who was Acadian, "in Acadie" in c1756, during Le Grand Dérangement, not before it.  See Robichaux, Acadians in Châtellerault, 23, Family No. 47.  Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 33-34, Family No. 62, however, says that Antoine BOUTARY, père married Marie SAULNIER in c1768, which would have been in France.  Antoine, fils was baptized at St.-Martin de Chantenay, near Nantes, in Mar 1778--where Marie-Madeleine was baptized 7 years later. 

She was one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

127.  Wall of Names, 27 (pl. 6R), calls her Marie [HÉBERT], & lists her with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadians in Exile, 189; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 2-3, calls her Marie, sa [Amable HÉBERT's] fille, age 24, on the embarkation list, Maria, su [Amable HEBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Marie HÉBERT, his [Amable HÉBERT's] daughter, age 24, on the complete listing, & says that she was in the 5th Family aboard Le Bon Papa with her father, step grandmother, & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:369, 416 (SGA-14, 2, #3), her marriage record, calls her Maria Modesta HÉBERT of Morlais, gives the names of her & her husband's parents, calls her father Amado, but lists no witnesses.  

128.  Wall of Names, 36 (pl. 9L), calls her Marie [HÉBERT], & lists her with her parents & 4 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 92-93, Family No. 172, her birth/baptismal record, calls her Marie-Rose HÉBERT, gives her parents' names, does not give her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 48-49, calls her Marie, sa [Joseph HÉBERT's] fille, age 8, on the embarkation list, & Marie HÉBERT, his [Joseph HÉBERT's] daughter, age 8, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 28th Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with her parents & 4 siblings; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:414-15, 496 (SM Ch.: v.4, #127), her marriage record, calls her Marie HÉBERT of St.-Similien, Nantes in France, says her husband was from Plouere, St.-Malo, France, gives her & her husband's parents' names, says his parents were from Acadia, & that the witnesses to her marriage were Sébastien BENOIT [her stepfather], Jean MOUTON sobrino (the nephew), Paul SAVOY, & Charles HÉBERT [her brother]; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 4:249 (GC Ch.: v.1, p.65), perhaps her death/burial record, calls her Marie HÉBERT, says she died "at age 67 yrs.," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a husband.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 499; Robichaux, Bayou Lafourche, 1770-98, 30, 161.  

Her middle name is from the death/burial record of son Pierre-Augustin LEBERT, dated 15 Jul 1798, in Hebert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:496 (SM Ch.: v.4, #153).

The burial record cited above gives what would have been her exact age in Sep 1844.  Also, she & her husband, who died in Mar 1823, settled at Beaubassin on the upper Vermilion, not far from Grand Coteau.  Too bad the priest there was so flakey in his recordkeeping. 

129.  Wall of Names, 29 (pl. 7L), calls her Marie-Yvette HÉBERT veuve HENRY, & lists her with her father & son Pierre; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 14-15, calls her Marie Yte, sa [Charles HÉBERT's] fille, veuve HENRY, age 33, on the embarkation list, does not include her on the debarkation list, calls her Marie Yte HÉBERT, widow HENRY, age 33, on the complete listing, & says she was in the 14th Family aboard La Bergère with her father & her son.

What happened to her in LA?  Did she survive the crossing from France?

130.  Not in Wall of Names because of the circumstance of his birth.  NOAR, 4:161 (SLC, B9, 390), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Martin HÉBERT, calls his parents _____ of Malaga & Ana DUGAS, & says his godparents were Gilberto LEONARD & ____.  

Why did the priest say that the boy's father was from "Malaga?"  The Malaga in Spain?  The mother's name, Ana DUGAS, points to the father being either Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT or his older brother Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT, both of whom had wives named Anne DUGAS.  Little Martin does not appear in the Valenzuéla census of 1788 with either family, so he probably died in infancy.  

Judging from his name, he was one of the newborn Acadians whose honorary godfather was Martin NAVARRO, Spanish intendant of LA.  

131.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Mathurin HÉBERT.

132.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Mathurin HÉBERT; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 2:195 (Thib.Ch.: v.1, #264), perhaps his burial record, calls him Mathurin HÉBERT m. Marie BOURG, says he died "at age 17 yrs.," but did not give his parents' names. 

Note that he & his wife came to LA aboard the same ship & settled in the same community soon after the reached the colony.

The Feb 1846 burial record probably is his because church & civil records show no other Mathurin HÉBERT married to a Marie BOURG at the time, certainly not someone who was only 17.  The Thibodaux priest probably meant to say that Mathurin died at age 77, or "17" may be a typo.  This Mathurin HÉBERT would have been 75 years old at the time. 

133.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Olivier [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 93-94, Family No. 173, calls him Olivier [HÉBERT], & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Olivier, son [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] fils, age 11, on the embarkation list, & Olivier HÉBERT, his [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] son, age 11, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:371-72, 461 (ASM-2, 15), his marriage record, calls him Olivier HÉBERT, gives his & her parents' names, says both sets of parents were from St.-Malo, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Ambrosio HÉBERT & Josef ROBICHEAUX.  

134.  Wall of Names, 22, calls her Osite HÉBERT veuve Alexandre MELANSON; BRDR, 2:109, 372 (SJA-1, 12a), the record of her second marriage, calls her Osithe HÉBERE, calls her husband Augustin BOUDROS, gives her & his parents' names, & says the witnesses to her marriage were Josephe SAUNIER, Thomas THERIOT, Jean B. BERGERON, & Josephe DUPUIS; BRDR, 3:424 (SJA-4, 26), her death/burial record, calls her Osite HÉBERT, "age 75 yrs., wid. Alexandre MELANSON," but does not give her parents' names or mention her second husband.  See also De Ville, St. James Census, 1777, 10; Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 151.   

The record is clear:  Osite, daughter of Jacques HÉBERE & Margueritte LANDRIS, married Augustin, son of Pierre BOUDROS & Marie DOYRAN, at St.-Jacques in Jan 1771.  So why does her burial record call her the widow of Alexandre MELANSON & not Augustin BOUDREAUX?  Where was Augustin in Jan 1777?  Had he died by then? 

135.  Wall of Names, 18 (pl. 3R), calls him Paul HÉBERT, & lists him with his wife Marguerite MELANSON, 7 children, & an orphan; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, calls his wife Marie-Josèphe; White, DGFA-1, 835, calls his wife Marguerite-Josèphe; BRDR, 3:424 (SGA-8, 37), his death/burial record, calls him Paul HÉBERT, age 90 yrs., & does not give his parents' names or mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

He was the paternal great-grandfather of first cousins Paul Octave & Louis HÉBERT of antebellum & War Between the States fame.  

136.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Paul HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, 2511, says he was born in c1758.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 430; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 10.

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

137.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Pierre HÉBERT; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:417, his death/burial record.  

Quote from Fr. Jean-François, cure de la nouvelle Acadie, in Pierre's death record.  The good priest also noted that Pierre was "an orphan of deceased parents," but he failed to list the parents, nor did he give Pierre's age when he died.  

138.  Wall of Names, 18, calls him Pierre HÉBERT 2; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2509, calls his wife Marie-Jeanne; Bourgeois, Cabanocey, 171, his marriage record; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 424, his marriage record. 

139.  Wall of Names, 32 (pl. 7R), calls him Pierre [HÉBERT], & lists him with his widowed mother & 6 siblings; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 26-27, calls him Pierre, son [Magdeleine DUGAST, veuve HÉBERT's] fils, manoeuvre, age 18, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, her [Magdeleine DUGAT, widow HÉBERT's] son, manual labor[er], age 18, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 65th Family aboard La Bergère with his mother & 6 siblings; BRDR, 6:318 (ASM-10, 54), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, "age 80 yrs," but gives no parents' names nor mentions a wife.

Which other Pierre HÉBERT in Assumption Parish would have died at age 80 in May 1845?  (Actually, Pierre Michel would have just turned 79, but still.)  If this was him, he would have been one of the last Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

140.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Pierre HÉBERT, & lists him with his wife, 2 children, & brother Jean; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 94, Family No. 174, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, says he was born in c1739 "in the Parish of Sainte-Anne in Acadie," gives his parents' names, says he was "resident of the Parish of Saint-Nicolas of Nantes since 5 months and formerly of Saint-Martin of Chantenay," details his marriage, including the names of his wife's parents & first husband, says she was "resident of the Parish of Saint-Martin of Chantenay for several years," includes the birth/baptismal record of son Pierre-Joseph, baptized 18 Mar 1785, St.-Martin, Chantenay, but gives no godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, journallier, age 45, on the embarkation list, Pedro ÉBERT on the debarkation list, & Pierre HÉBERT, day laborer, age 45, on the complete listing with the note "Jean-Baptiste HÉBERT went to Attakapas," says he was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his wife, a 2 children, & brother Jean, details his marriage, including his & his wife's parents' names but gives no place of marriage, & says son Pierre-Joseph was baptized in 1785 but gives no place of baptism; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:506 (SM Ch.: v.4, #1167), his death/burial record, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, native of Acadie, widower of Charlotte POTIER, does not gives his parents' names, & says he was age 79 when he was buried.  See also Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 499.

I am assuming that the "Parish of Sainte-Anne in Acadie" where he was born was the one at Tintamarre, in the Chignecto area, not Ste.-Anne at Cheboque, near Cap-Sable.  

The "daughter" on the passenger list of Le Beaumont who was called Anne HÉBERT was not his daughter but his wife's daughter from her first marriage, so the girl's name was Anne PATRY, not Anne HÉBERT.

How was his wife Charlotte POTIER kin to Attakapas-bound Pierre POTIER, who also sailed on Le Beaumont?  Is her relationship with Pierre POTIER why Pierre HÉBERT & his family went to the Attakapas instead of following the majority of Le Beaumont passengers to the Baton Rouge District?

141.  Wall of Names, 35 (pl. 8R), calls him Pierre [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & 3 siblings; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 93-94, Family No. 173, calls him Pierre [HÉBERT], gives his parents' names, & details his family's participation in the Poitou settlement of the early 1770s as well as its voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 42-43, calls him Pierre, son [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] fils, age 15, on the embarkation list, & Pierre HÉBERT, his [Joseph-Ignace HÉBERT's] son, age 15, on the complete listing, & says he was in the 1st Family aboard Le St.-Rémi with his parents & 3 siblings; BRDR, 2:196, 372 (SJA-2, 5), his marriage record, calls him Pedro ÉBER, gives his & his wife's parents' names, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Juan ÉBER & Anastasio COMBO.

The baptismal record of son Ramon Antonio, dated 11 Mar 1792, in NOAR, 5:202-03 (SLC, B11, 187), shows that the family may have been living in New Orleans in the early 1790s.  The baptismal records of 3 of their daughters, dated 7 Dec 1794, 22 Jul 1798, & 11 Aug 1799, in Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 1-A:405 (Opel. Ch.:. v.1-A, p.204), 1-A:406 (Opel. Ch.: v.1-A, p.217), 1-A:414 (Op. Ch.: v.1-A, p.124), show that the family also lived in the Opelousas District, where the COMEAUXs were a prominent family.  

His daughter Anne Rosalie's marriage record, dated 18 Oct 1808, listing him as deceased, is in BRDR, 3:405 (ASC-2, 175).  The Ascension priest who recorded the marriage noted that the wedding took place at the "home of the bride's uncle, Joseph Ignace HÉBERT," but Joseph Ignace was her paternal grandfather, not her uncle.  

142.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Pierre HÉBERT; <perso.orange.fr/froux/St_malo_arrivees/5bateaux.htm>, Family No. 118, shows that in the crossing to St.-Malo in 1758-59, he lost his entire family--wife Madeleine, age 30, died probably in the hospital at St.-Malo 17 Mar 1759 less than 2 months after they reached France, & daughters Marie-Josèphe, age 3, & Anne-Josèphe, age 1, both died at sea.  See also See also De La Roque, "Tour of Inspections," Canadian Archives, 2A:117. 

What happened to him in LA?  Did he survive the voyage over? 

143.   Wall of Names, 18, calls him Pierre HÉBERT; Arsenault, Généalogie, 2508, 2512; BRDR, 1a(rev.):101 (SGA-3, 44b), his birth/baptismal record, calls him Paul-Caieton HÉBERT, gives his parents' names, & says his godparents were Pierre LANDRY & Élizabet LE BLANC.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150; Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 431; De Ville, St. Gabriel Census, 1777, 11. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

Where is his marriage record?

144.  Wall of Names, 43, calls him Pierre HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:373, his marriage record; Hébert, D., South LA Records, 1:276 (Thib.Ch.: v. 1, p. 38), his death/burial record, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, but does not give his parents' names or mention a wife. 

145.  Wall of Names, 45, calls him Pierre-Jean HÉBERT; BRDR, 2:372-73, 505 (PCP-19, 39), his marriage record, calls him Pierre ÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, calls her mother Marie-Françoise COUTE, & says the witnesses to his marriage were Jean LONGUÉPÉE & Pierre LONGUÉPÉE ( brothers of the bride); BRDR, 3:413 (SGA-8, 41), his death/burial record, calls him Jean-Pierre HÉBERT, age 40, & does not gives his parents' names or mention a wife.  

His marriage was recorded at Pointe Coupée because there was no priest at Bayou des Écores, across the river from Pointe Coupée.  

147.  Wall of Names, 33 (pl. 8L), calls him Pierre-Joseph [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents, sister, & an uncle; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 94, Family No. 174, his birth/baptismal record, calls him Pierre-Joseph HÉBERT, gives his parents' names but not his godparents' names, & details the family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 34-35, calls him Pierre-Joseph, son [Pierre HÉBERT's] fils, à la mamelle, on the embarkation list, Pedro, su [Pedro ÉBERT's] hijo, on the debarkation list, & Pierre-Joseph HÉBERT, his [Pierre HÉBERT's] son, a nursling, on the complete listing, says he was in the 22nd Family aboard Le Beaumont with his parents, sister, & an uncle, & that he was baptized in 1785 but gives no place of baptism; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 2-A:463-64, 500 (SM Ch.: v.5, #253; SM Ch.: Folio F; NI Ch.: OA-#39), his marriage record, calls him Joseph HÉBERT, gives his & his wife's parents' names, says his parents were "inhabitants at Carencro," that his wife's parents also were from Carencro, that he married at his wife's father's house at Carencro, & that the witnesses to his marriage were Francois ARSONNEAU, Simon BENOIT, & Dominque BABINEAU, "all inhabitants of Carencro"; Hébert, D., Southwest LA Records, 5:280 (GC Ch.: v.1, p.85), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, says he died "at age 72 yrs.," but does not bother to give any parents' names or even mention a wife. 

If he was the Pierre HÉBERT who died near Grand Coteau in Feb 1851, he was among the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA who joined our ancestors. 

148.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Pierre-Paul HÉBERT; BRDR, 1a(rev.):101; BRDR, 3:425 (SGA-8, 37), probably his death/burial record, calls him Pierre HÉBERT, age 64, but does not give his parents' names nor mention a wife.  See also Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150. 

Georgetown & Fredericktown were villages on the Sassafras River on MD's Eastern Shore, in the northeastern part of the colony, not the cities in present-day DC & central MD.  See Wood, Acadians in Maryland, 15, 16. 

149.  Wall of Names, 19, calls him Prosper HÉBERT.  When did he reach LA?  1765?  1766?  1767?  1768?  His middle name is from his children's marriage records in BRDR, 2:358, 361, 371.

150.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls him Rémi [HÉBERT], & lists him with his parents & a sister; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167, his baptismal record, calls him Remig HÉBERT, gives his parents' but not his godparents' names, & details his family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls him Rémi, son [Isaac HÉBERT's] fils, age 3, on the embarkation list, does not include him on the debarkation list, calls him Rémi HÉBERT, his [Isaac HÉBERT's] son, age 3, on the complete listings, says he was in the 45th Family aboard La Bergère with his parents & a sister, & that he was baptized in 1782 but gives no place of baptism; BRDR, 7:253 (SJB, Brusly-4, 36), perhaps his death/burial record, calls him Rémi HÉBERT, "age 66 yrs.," but gives no parents' names nor mention a wife.  

If he did die in West Baton Rouge Parish in Jan 1852, one wonders what he was doing there.  Also, he would have been 70, not 66, if he had died then & would have been among the last of the Acadian immigrants in LA to join our ancestors. 

151.  Wall of Names, 31 (pl. 7R), calls her enfant [HÉBERT], & lists her with her parents & a brother; Robichaux, Acadians in Nantes, 89, Family No. 167, her baptismal record, calls her Riené-Eulalie HÉBERT, gives her parents' but not her godparents' names, & details her family's voyage to LA in 1785; Hébert, D., Acadian Families in Exile 1785, 20-21, calls her plus un enfant, à la mamelle, on the embar
