Yes, Esther would be the daughter of Joseph Hebert and Marie Magdeleine Brosseau. Listers from other groups have found her birth on 26/12/1825, so she would have been the first child of Joseph and Marie. Do you have any other family history on this Hebert family - such as other children and Esther's marriage and her children? The only information I have is very sketchy and has come from the Haut-Richelieu Historical Society in St. Jean sur Richelieu. They found a special kardex that showed Esther marrying a John Murphy at St. Andrew chuch in Montreal in 1845. This is very confusing to me - why would she go to Montreal to be married? She and John show up in St. Jean again in 1848 when their son Alexandre(my g grandfather) is born and baptised at St. Jean l'Evangeliste.Alexandre's godparents were Joseph Hebert and Marie Brossard. There were other children from this marriage- so far two were found by the Historical Society - a Mary Jane and Rebecca or Marie Rebecca.
I would be very interested in any and all information you could provide on my ancestors.
