Re: Gagnard/Gaignard info needed

In Reply to: Gagnard/Gaignard info needed by Bruce Gagnard of 72

Hello! Hebert/Gagnard possible connection.

My father has published some research on our Creole or non-Acadian Hebert family.

It can be located in La Voix Des Prairies
October 1984
Number 19
Starting on page 69

Ms. Rosie Wells is a very good researcher and is helping research this family also.

Ville Platte Library has copies of La Voix Des Prairies and these:
The Alexandria Genealogical Library - Downtown Alexandria
Louisiana State Library
Dupre Library - Lafayette
Calcasieu Public Library
Nicholls State University Library
New Orleans Public Library

This was published by the Evangeline Genealogical & Historical Society - founded 1980

He has compiled much more and would like to share with others and learn more.

I have tried to get a copy of Joe Hebert's book to see about the "Mobile connection" but have not been able to locate it or confirm that this Hebert line came from Mobile with the Fontenots etc.

I have contacted Burgundy and had some good help from Mr. Jaques Louvel but no sure family connections. Martigny Le Comte is a very small village even to this day and the church records were probably burned during the Revolution.

We want very much to learn the origins of our family.

Please forward to persons who will interested in this data and more. My father also has information on my mother's Guillory/Berzas, Deshotel side. My Hebert family is from the Joachim line. Fontenots, Shuff, Deshotels, Ortegos, Gagnards....

Please contact us for more information. We want to share, learn, and join people doing research in this area.

Thank you and we look forward to hear from you!

At first glance, it appeared Joe Hebert and I had followed the same Hebert families, however, I do not have any descendants from Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis Parishes.

Calcasieu Parish was created in 1840 from St. Landry Parish. The earliest records can still be found in St. Landry Parish. Remember, our ancestors did not move, the parish boundaries changed.

The Lake Charles fire of 1910 destroyed the Calcasieu Parish Court House and the early records of the Catholic Church. These records begin in 1913. Jefferson Davis Parish was created in 1913 from Calcasieu Parish. These records also begin in 1913.

Brothers, Joseph & Joachim Hebert, sons of Francois Hebert and Marie Anne Marguerite Marcantel, married in st. Landry Parish, sisters, Elizabeth & Marie Fontenot, daughters of Philippe Fontenot dit St. Philippe and Marie Nicole Brignac.

Francois Hebert m. Marie Anne Marguerite Marcantel in Pointe Coupee.

Question: Was Francois Hebert at the Poste des Alibamons before he married?

Philippe Fontenot dit St. Philippe m. Marie Nicole Brignac in Mobile, AL. Philippe Fontenot dit St. Philippe and two of his sons, Joseph Philippe LaRose Fontenot and Louis Philippe Fontenot, rendered Patriotic Service during the Rev. War. (DAR Patriotic Index). I decend from both sons.

Question: Have you looked for your Heberts in the DAR Index? If they rendered patriotic service during the Rev. War, the book should tell you where they served and that may answer the question of whether or not they were at the Poste des Alibamons.
