I am sorry to take so long to respond to your query. I did not access it until Nov. 15th and then I got a Server Error all weekend. I was so frustrated. I am waiting for a response from Genealogy.com as to the reason. But I have filled in your questions and added two more generations that go back to Joachim Thibert of St. Jean Bourgogne, France. It is where Dijon Mustard is manufactured and a wine that I forgot the name.
You were asking for Thibert children of Joachim and Martine. I would like such information too if you have anything more to add since your last post.
Children of Joachim Thibert b. 1830 & Martine Rousseau b. Oct 1822 married October 10, 1848

Magazine article on Jean-Louis & his brother Jean-Marie Thibert: "Two Thibert brothers, Jean Louis and Jean Marie in 1837 joined with the "Sons of Liberty" which consisted of French Canadians opposed to English parlimentary rule. The leader of the "Sons of Liberty " was Louis Joseph Papineau. The rebellion of 1837 is often referred to the Papineau Uprising.
Jean Louis and Jean Marie were captured and sentenced to death for treason, but prior to their hanging the government decided to deport the last 58 prisoners to the penial colony of Australia. The destination of the prisoners was to be Norfolk Island, which was a hell-on earth reserved for the worse convicts.
On the morning of September 26, 1839 the 58 prisoners were shackled two by two and marched to the courtyard of the prison. They were herded down to the quay at a half-trot, where the steamer British American was waiting to transport them to Quebec. At Quebec the Buffalo was docked and waiting. The Buffalo was an old man-o'-war with ports in her heavy sides for thirty guns. She was a three-decker. By eleven o'clock on the morning of September 27 the prisoners had been marched on board. Eighty four condemned men from Upper Canada joined them for transportation to Tasmania. The prisoners were housed in the reek of the third deck well below the waterline, handcuffs were removed, mattresses handed around and one hundred and forty men shoved to their places. They moved bent double and half the group would be shut away from the others. A double corridor ran the length of the ship, divided down its middle by a rough partition of packing boxes and crates. At either end was an iron grille, a sentry and the lanterns there provided the only light. The partition rose to the full height of the 'tween-deck, which was about four 1/2 feet. A long common shelf, built out from the inner hull served both as a bench and as a locker for their few possessions. Below that with about 10 feet to stretch out in, and rubbing shoulder to shoulder, each man spread his mattress. One blanket was shared with every two men. They were not allowed to talk. The ship sailed on September 28, 1839.
Amid appalling conditions very few people died or became ill and after 63 days at sea they arrived in Rio de Janiro. Five days later, December 5, the ship sailed again with fresh provisons on board. On February 13, 1840 the Buffalo docked at Hobart Town, Tasmania where the prisoners from Upper Canada disembarked. The Buffalo spent six days in Hobart Town and then six more days at sea before reaching Sydney harbour.
The Bishop of the Catholic church came on board the first day they were in port, heard confessions and returned two days later to perform a communion for the convicts. The church then intervened and arranged for the prisoners to be transported to Longbottom, rather than Norfolk Island. On March 11, 1840 the Bishop was successful in making the arrangements.
At 2 p.m. on March 11 the prisoners were brought to the deck of the Buffalo for the last time, manacled and in pouring rain. The handcuffed men were put aboard a schooner and transported to the mouth of the Paramatta River, then they had to walk a mile to Longbottom. This took considerable time as these people had not set foot on ground for many months.
The prison term was set up in phases. Phase 1 lasted about 6 months and consisted of digging stone, breaking it and hauling it off by bullock cart over the raw, half built roads of New South Wales. The second phase was commuting to Sydney, in their prison uniforms, where they hauled stone and cut wood for paving-blocks in the construction of the city streets. The French rebels made friends easy and worked hard at their jobs. When the next phase came, some fourteen months later, they found themselves in demand for a while.
With the start of the third phase they were now bondsmen, still under supervison but permitted to hire out. Farmers were in need of labourers so they were able to earn some money which was placed in a special account for them when they would become free. During this phase they were supplied with a hut and rations to cook their own food.
The next phase allowed the rebel to work where they pleased and for whom they pleased as long as the police approved. It was difficult to find employment because the country had sunk into one of its sudden depressions.
In 1845 a pardon was issued by the Canadian government and the French Canadians started returning to Canada. Jean Louis and Jean Marie would soon be reunited with their families."
Maybe this is one of the reasons the family went to WI. You can email me directly if you like but I am afraid that I don't have anything more about Joachim other than his ancestors.
