fs Petrus Joannes and Carolina Van Den Bossche
brother of  Petrus (B VII a)

Adegem 14/6/1828

Ursel 15/6/1873

When Petrus No (B VII a) was almost three years old he received a brother called Francies.  Francies was barely 5 years old when he lost his mother.  He was brought up by his 2 elder sisters and later by his stepmother.

He married Ursula Mussche who was born in Ursel on 16/2/1835, the daughter of Jan Baptist Mussche and Bernardina Ronse.  Here (thanks i.a. to Sara Noe Coblin who lives in California) we have a copy of Ursula's birth certificate.  She was a labourer.  Francies and Ursula first lived in Eeklo, then in Bellem and Ursel in the Vrekkem quarter but after the death of Francies in 1873 she moved to Kaprijke where she died at the Eindeke (Small End) quarter on 6/1/1903.

Ursula gave Francies seven children:

  1. Florence No
    Eeklo 23/8/1862
    She married in Eeklo on 26/11/1885 with Bruno Lippens who was born in Lembeke on 30/9/1848.  He was a weaver.  They first lived at the Balgerhoekstraat, 35 in Eeklo but on 3/6/1891 they moved to Adegem.
    Florence lived in Zandvleuge when she died in the Brugschestraat in Eeklo on 24-1-1900.
  2. Emma Maria No
    Bellem 11/9/1864
    She married in Kaprijke on 11/2/1886 with Joris Francies Roegiers.  He was a labourer, born on 25/7/1847 in Lembeke, the son of Francies Roegiers and Victoria De Pape.  In 1891 they lived at Vrombautstraat, 15 in Eeklo.  And that is where Joris Francies died on 6/1/1898, mourned by 3 sons and 1 daughter.
    In 1900 we find Emma at the Vrombautstraat, 42.  She was then registered as a shopkeeper.  She also brought up Edmond De Baets, the son of her younger sister who had died in 1904.
    In 1912 she emigrated to New York with her stepson and daughter.
    She died in Erie, Illinois on 8 March 1929.  Here, courtesy of Mrs. Judi McDowell we show you her funeral card printed by the Gazette van Moline.
