There appears to be no further information on this family. With one surviving male, as listed above, it would seem that the name disappeared from the area after this point in time. Whether he died or left the area for some reason is not known. There seems no connection to the Wilkie family of the area, who were Loyalists of Scots ancestry. I mention this because the name Vuilquet also ended up being referred to as Wilkie, and appears as such on the Montbeliard Monument.
