    Speleers is a typical Flemish ( northern , Dutch speaking part of Belgium ) name.

      I was the one who found all this to begin with (obviously), and like I said, I wasn’t and am not sure to my satisfaction.

        So do you want a knighthood for that? All you found seem to fit with the rest, though it’s unclear which is the grandfather’s name, because not all the couple children are recorded (at least on familysearch.org). But those are his g-grandparents at 99%.

    paternal great-grandparents: Emmanuel Carolus Franciscus Speleers (Belgian man) and Margaret Allan

    Curious about the sourcing for this. How far back is the Belgian?
