His bride Sophie was the daughter of Jan Baptist and Seraphina De Craene.  She was born in Waterland-Oudeman on 19/6/1851.

He was engineer or machinist.  They left for Borgerhout (now part of the city of Antwerp) where several of their children were born.  They came back to Boekhoute with two of their children.  They then moved to Eeklo where they ran a public house.  But he was also a clockmaker.  On 29 April 1914 they left once again for Borgerhout.  They both died during WW I.

We know of the following children:

    An Emma No was listed on the passenger list of 1887 of the S.S. Noordland (of the Red Star Line) bound for New York.  She was then 16 years old, servant, from Borgerhout.
    An Emma No got married on 14/9/1889 in Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey to Edward Van Paemele ( 1860 Belgium).  They had two children.  Are we still talking here about our Emma Maria No ?
