Around 1633, Marie Gaudet was born to parents Jean Gaudet and an unknown mother.[1]

Around 1650, Marie married Etienne Hébert, brother of Antoine. Between 1651 and 1670 Marie gave birth to 10 children: Marie, Maguerite, Emmanuel, Etienne, Jean, Françoise, Catherine, Martine, Michel, and Antoine. According to depositions from their descendents, Marie came to France with her husband.[2]

When Etienne died between 1669 and 1671,[1] Marie married Dominique Gareau, Royal Sargeant, around 1676. They had one child Marie around 1677.

Marie died at Port Royal on July 30 1710.[1]

DNA. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported Marie Gaudet had a J1b2 haplogroup. I don't know the details re how many of her descendants were tested to support this report. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, 9 descendants have consistently reported a J haplogroup, as have 10 descendants of her sister Francoise Gaudet. J haplogroups indicate European origins.
