Levinus van Cauwenberge and Barbera Theresia Rombaut, part II

I will continue my search for Levinus van Cauwenberge and Barbera Theresia Rombaut. Last week I searched for Levinus van Cauwenberge in Zeeuwen Gezocht (Zeelanders Wanted). I continued searching this database, and expanded my search by trying a few spelling variants (obvious ones like Levinus/Livinus, Rombaut/Rombout, Barbera/Barbara, Cauwenberge/Cauwenberg). I quickly found this death record:

Death of Joannes Francies van Cauwenberge

Death of Joannes Francies van Cauwenberge

Joannes Francies van Cauwenberge, son of Livinus van Cauwenberge and Barbara Theresia Rombout, died 16 June 1799 in Eede at the age of six weeks.

So Barbera Theresia Rombaut gave birth early May 1799, but passed away before 18 June 1799. Maybe she died during child birth? Levinus was certainly quick to remarry after her death.

Interestingly, I found another marriage record for Livinus van Cauwenberge en Johanna Cornelia Dhaenens, on 29 May 1799 (10 Prairial VII, in the French Republican calendar) in Eede. Strange.

Another interesting record: Anthonius Bernardus van Couwenberge, son of Livinus and of Maria Cornelia de Vos, married in 1817 in Eede. Is this a son of my ancestor Levinus or of a namesake?

I did not find any other relevant records on Zeeuwen Gezocht, so I end this post with the updated entries for Levinus van Cauwenberge and Barbera Theresia Rombaut (some of it from secondary sources, so to be confirmed):

114 Levinus van Cauwenberge. Born 15 February 1749 in Sint Johannes in Eremo, Belgium. Date of death unknown. Parents Johannes Baptiste van Cauwenberge and Maria de Poortere. He married 1. Barbera Theresia Rombaut, date and place unknown; 2. Johanna Cornelia d’ Haanens, on 29 May 1799 in Eede and/or 18 June 1799 in Sluis, now province Zeeland.

Next week I’ll check if there are scans of records in FamilySearch. Stay tuned!
