Toussaint Hebert (Abare)

July 27th, 2014 |

I started to review my documents on him, and I realize I have no documents that make him the son of Charles Hebert & Celeste GABOURY. Just because he lived next door to him his whole life doesn’t make him a son. I have also noticed that Pierre HEBERT & Marie GELINEAU seem to have a son named Toussaint born within the same time frame. Hmmmm.
I have decided to remove Charles & Celeste as Toussaint’s parents for the time being until the miracle document shows up and ties them together as father & son instead of brothers.

Does anyone have a marriage record for Toussaint HEBERT & Catherine BOIRE? This would list the names of their parents.
