Please read the biography prior to initiating a merge. Please do not change the parents of this Martin Ebert.
Martin was born sometime between 1783 to 1790. This based on numerous bits and pieces from the internet and via some guesswork of how accurate Census Data is.
This Martin could have been born in New York State. There are a few Martin Ebert's born about this time in New York State. To figure out which one fits this martin we can look to the unsourced information for the marriage of this Martin Ebert to Roxanne Waller. This point to Utica New York in 1808 by most or, by Carol Hutchinson, in Hull, QC.
This Martin can not be the Martin Ebert, son of John Martin Ebert and Anna Maria Smyser born in Pennsylvania, John Martin Ebert. Martin Ebert who was born in York PA, married Mary Eichelberger, died in York, PA and is buried there. He does not fit this profile.
This, Martin Ebert who married Roxanne Waller, somehow took advantage of the 1792 proclamation of Governor Alured Clarke "of 1792, which threw the lands of Lower Canada open to such American settlers as were willing to declare allegiance to the British Crown. These migrations took the typical form in British North America of group settlements consisting of 'leader and associates'...."
Along with Philemon Wright and his Laborers and workers,"...The core of the first group of settlers consisted of four other families and thirty-three labouring men, 1 1 unmarried farmers, from different parts of Massachusetts."  What is the route these settlers took? If they swung across New York and Near Albany then, per Carol Hutchinsons theory that he born somewhere near Albany, then it could be likely he joined this group as one of the workers and made his way with them to Hull.
Carol Hutchinson points to the First Account Books Philemon Wright as a source for knowing Martin Ebert was in Hull as early as 1806 as witnessed by his log entry into the account book. Carol also lists him as living in Hull and being on the 1808 Militia Rolls, Bytown or Bust - age of 24. "One is a militia list for Hull, Eardly and Onslow circa 1808. It lists Tiberius Wright and Philemon Wright as well as Eliad Waller, Eder Waller, (both sons of Truman Waller) and Martin Ebert as well as others for a total of 52.
His Wife Roxanne Waller. Roxanne's family headed by her father "Truman Waller, 43, from Marlborough Township and formerly of Granville, New York" traveled to Canada, August 1801, with a group of families with Dudley Moore.  Considering if Roxanne's estimated birth date is 1790? The she would have been ten years old when her family traveled to Canada. This helps to substantiate Carol Hutchinson's idea that Martin and Roxanne were not married in Utica New York as Internet Genealogies pose.
If the Ebert Family was the Ebert Family of Albany they were not far away from the Waller family, 65 miles, in Granville, Washington County. Did they Migrate together?
Carol Hutchinson poses that Martin Ebert could have left Hull during the War of 1812 (he does not appear on the Hull Milita List for 1813 ) which would explain the birth of his daughter Elizabeth Catherine in Utica, New York, in 1815. Carol also points to a Martin Ebert who was a part of Coldin's 5th Artillery and Infantry Reg't., New York Militia.  More research needed to determine location draw of this reg't. There is only one Martin Ebert listed among the Eberts who served from, NY, PA, LA and NC.
That he lived and died in Quebec and Ontario is fairly well documented.
"At the Bristol Township Line sometime before 1825, an American by the name of Martin Ebert had squatted on the East half of Lot 11, Range 2, which borders on the River. This property had been improved by an American squatter living in Bristol by the name of Uzal Pearson. Ebert Bought these improvements in 1827."
