Need to find confirmation and specific information on the family Blankeman (also written as Blanckeman) from which this Collette Blankeman comes. She was called "The Rose of Antwerp" for her Beauty, as seen in a portrait taken of her in Paris when she was 65. This woman married Constante VanDycke, and there is much information on that family. Their only child i believe was Louis C Van Dycke-Born in Antwerp April 12, 1829. Looks as if Constante VanDycke died in Ostende. Louis C immigrated to the US in 1855. No further info on Collette Blankeman. My GGgrandmother was a Celestine Collette Jeanette Blankeman-thought to be the child of Charles or Antoine Blankeman/Blanckeman and Collette Petit? My Celestine Blanckeman 1837-1921 married Emile DelaCenserie in Ostend about 1862. Intuitively I believe both Blankeman are connected, but looking to verify with records. thank you so much for any help in Belgium-Antwerp or Ostend.
