Autres notes biographiques

On October 1, 1634; Hélène Des Portes married Guillaume Hebert, son of Louis Hebert and Marie Rollet, in Quebec City; and the couple would have three children, before Guillaume's death on September 23, 1639:

Joseph, Marie-Françoise and Angélique. Marie married Guillaume Fournier and had fifteen children.

Angélique did not marry and died at St. Thomas Quebec in 1665.

Their son Joseph, married Marie-Charlotte De Poiters on October 12, 1660; but the following June he was captured by the Iroquois and held as prisoner. A letter from a fellow captive noted that Joseph had been wounded in the arm and shoulder, but he was later tortured and stabbed to death by a drunken warrior. His wife was pregnant at the time of his capture, and bore him a son; whom she also named Joseph; on October 5, 1661. However, he died as an infant so the Hebert name in Quebec, that began with Louis, would be brought to an end.
