A quick search through Fr. Heberts research books and census online I found the following. Hope it fits and helps as it does include the name of Jean Petry parents. I'm also a direct line from Quebedeaux's! Hello cousin.
STELLY, Carmelite (Jean & Theotiste QUEBEDEAU) m. 12 Feb. 1838 Jean PITERS (Laf. Ch.: v. 2, p. 283)
If Fr. Heberts research is correct then the parents for Jean are:
PITERS, Jean of St. Martinville (Adam & Marie Aglae PALARD) m. 12 Feb. 1838 Carmelite STELLY (Laf. Ch.: v. 2, p. 283)
According to Fr. Hebert's research, John and Carmelite had a few children.
PETRY, Marie Elizabeth (Jean & Carmelite STELLY) b. 12 Oct. 1840 (Laf. Ch.: v. 5, p. 225)
PETRY, Marie Celanie (Joah & Carmelite STELLY) b. 28 July 1843 (Laf. Ch.: v.6, p.32)
PETRY, Treville (John & Carmelite STELLY) m. 5 Sept. 1872 Marie Eleonide MARCEAU (Abbeville Ch.: v. 2, p. 345)
1850 Census Jean Piters/Peters/Petry etc. was dead I think. Carmelite had remarried to Don Louis Gaspard if I follow the census correctly. Looks like Jean Petry could have died abt 1843-50 depending if Selina Petry age 7 is correct in Fr. Heberts research.

Note: names are hard to read and not always correct spelling on census.
Carmelite is found to be living next to her brothers in the 1850 census, Zenon and Jean Pierre Stelly.
