So the family lore is that jean baptiste hebert had been living in acadia when the english shipped the french to st. maloff's island off the coast of france. i'm told that france did not want them and kept them at st. maloff's (a military fort) for a time when seven ships set sail for the port of new orleans. when they arrived there their cuiltures blended with that of spanish people, originating the cajun culture. my grandfather's name wss jean robert hebert and he married a woman whose name was inez ablares. they were married in white lake, i think, and made they way up the mississipi river, for reasons not fully known; perhaps to avoid TB, perhaps to find work. In any even Jean Robert Hebert was sent texas to recover from or get away for TB.He then made his way north ultimately coming to Syraucse, New York to work for Solvay Process.At some point along the way he changed his name from Jean Robert Hebert to Herbert Jean Hubert.It's fascinating to me because i never met him and i'm his namesake, although I go by H. J. Hubert.Would be curious to have anyone's insights or remarks on this.Thank you.
