Judith's birth date on this profile of 1784 is unsourced, but may have been estimated by adding 1 year to spouse Jean Baptiste Jeansonne's birth in 1783. Now that a death record has been found showing her to be 80 years old in 1857, perhaps a birth estimate of 1777 should be used. Admittedly, an age of 80 years may well be an estimate as well, but for now it's all we have.
The following marriage source on Family Search gives Judith's parents as Louis Broussard and Marguerite Ledée. See discussion on the profile of Marguerite Benoit about this name, which was apparently the surname of Marguerite's step-father.
