Looking for birth and parents of John Joshua Martin from the Compton Que. area

We have the complete history of John Joshua Martin b:20May1832 we think??) from his marriage to Mary Jane Paul (2Sep1856 in Ascot, Sherbrooke, Quebec) till his death 27Aug1920 in Martinville, Compton Quebec, Canada. What we also know is that he had at least one brother Frederick b: 1834 who Married Eliza Kelly and died in Coaticook, Quebec in 1911.
What we can't find and would love to know is where they were born for sure ( we think it was in Trois Riviers Que. and who their parent were??? We think their father's name was Henri (Henry) Martin born about 1800 and possibly have a photo of him.
John and Mary Jane's son in my direct line was John Munroe Martin and his son was Raymond Benjamin Martin
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for Henri Martin born ~1800 in probably Canada East

My great grand father was John Joshua Martin born~ 1831 Quebec. My great grandmother was Mary Jane Paul born at sea on way from England to Quebec in 1838. John Joshua had one known brother Frederick Martin born~ 1834 and his wife was Eliza Kelly. We are looking for any other family members of these two and believe their father's name was Henri Martin. we have a picture of who we think is Henri if requested. John Joshua and Mary Jane Paul lived in the Eastern Townships all of their adult life.
Peter Martin born 1832 in 3 Rivers has a remarkable resemblance to John Joshua Martin.
Any help with these families would be much appreciated
