Hi, Just saw your post. Michael is the son of Cornelius and Maria Declerck. I found them in the Meulebeke records. They both died there and that is where Michael was born. It looks like we have the same info. Cornelius parents were Willem and Judoca Govaers. Willem's father was Matthijs. If you would like the file I have on the family email me at email@example.com
and I will send. It might be of some help.
