In Reply to: Hebert's Linament by Allan B. Yates of 2892

The liniment was actually called 'Laborer's Own Liniment,' and there were two distinct labels for it - one for horses and other farm animals, and one for human consumption. The concoction was identical for both.

Raymond Hebert was MY Grandmother's, Leah Hebert McNamara - Father, making him my Great-Grandfather.

He died in Shediac, NB, in 1959 at age 99 - legend has it, after running a favourite pony around his corral and sitting in his favourite chair, awaiting breakfast. When his wife came to fetch him, he had expired, sitting up, his chin on his chest.

Raymond's Son, my Great Uncle John R. Hebert, who was married to Isabelle MacFarland, and who sold the liniment out of a store in Lynn, Massachusetts, lived to the age of 95 and died there in the 1980's.
