Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet


These micro posts present the first generation of each of the families that established different surnames found in Caraquet, New Brunswick. Most of the information is drawn from Fidele Theriault’s genealogical dictionary “Les Familles de Caraquet”. His book is in French and offers a lot more information including family trees of the first generations (with precise dates)  and in many cases explanations of how the first pioneers arrived in Caraquet and other fascinating anecdotes. If you don’t have access to the book you can contact me for extra information by leaving a comment underneath this post.

The Caraquet Heberts are from Acadia. Joseph Hebert (son of Charles Hebert and Catherine Saulnier) had married Marie-Joseph Vincent (daughter of Jean Vincent and Isabelle Michel) in Port-Lavoie (Saint Jean Island) and the couple arrived in Caraquet in the 1760s.  Their son Joseph Hebert married Theotiste Doucet and had a son Joseph Hebert who married Anne Chiasson (daughter of Pierre Chiasson and Marguerite Duguay).

 

Joseph Hebert and Anne Chiasson’s children included:

  • Joseph (m. Rosalie Jean, daughter of Pierre Jean and Rosalie Lepage),
  • Fidele (m. Luce Lanteigne, daughter of Jean-Baptiste Lanteigne  and Therese David),
  • Gervais (m. Sophie Albert, daughter of Louis Albert and Suzanne Mailloux),
  • Lange (m. Souveraine Chiasson, daughter of (Hypolite Chiasson and Venerande Frigault),
  • Prospere (m. Marie Albert, daughter of Louis Albert and Suzanne Mailloux)
  • Severe (m. Agnes Chiasson, daughter of Joseph Chiasson and Angele Doiron).

Evelyn in Montreal: Ascendancy of Louis Vincent (m. Chevrefils, Marie Eulalie) | Pt.2

1881

As a follow-up to the previously published  ascendancy of Louis Vincent (m. Chevrefils, Marie Eulalie), this would appear to be the household of your great-great grandparents Seraphin Vincent and Henriette Lacoste in Ste-Urbain. (Chateauguay) in 1881. I would suggest that the married couple that is living with them is probably their  son Louis Vincent and daughter-in-law Marie Eulalie Chevrefils.
