We would dearly love to hear from these distant cousins and hope they will contact us soon.  We would be very happy to publish here a few photographs and other information on the family.

As we said above August Noë and  Sophie Van Hootegem had a daughter Augusta.  Augusta married Peter Musche.  August Noë was the son of Francies Noë (B VII b) and Ursula Mussche.  Is there a relationship between Ursula and Peter ?  Or is this just a coincidence ?

Sources: Find a Grave: the death of Charles, Marian and Betty Musche.  (Thank you once again Mrs. Judi McDowell !)
We found out about the death of Raymond Musche thanks to the obituary—now disappeared—on the Garland Funeral Home website.
Many thanks to Mrs. Marie-Christine Vandevelde who brought the genealogytrails website to our attention with so much information on the Musche family.
The information on Henry Musche's demise comes from an obituary  by Melva L. Taylor in The Daily Gazette of Sterling-Rock Falls, Illinois which appeared on 10 June 1963.
And finally, again thanks to Mrs. Marie-Christine Vandevelde we found the the U.S. Censuses of 1920 and 1930 in the Family Search website.  Both mention Arlene Mussche, the eldest daughter of Peter Mussche.
