It is likely that Blondina was pregnant with Henry de Waele when she left Belgium with Charles in 1869.
Henry was a county official (supervisor) in Roscommon, MI.

Henry was born in 1869 in Lafayette, Indiana, the year Charles and Blondina arrived from Belgium. My grandfather Arthur (4th child born in US after Henry, Emily, and Alfred ) was born in Roscommon in 1876. Charles is recorded as a "justice of the peace" at that time on Arthur's birth registration. I tried to find Henry's birth registration in the Lafayette archives, but no luck there. Then located it in early 1940s Roscommon data base. Apparently Henry needed a birth certificate then for insurance purposes, medical support, whatever; so officially registered his birth at 70 plus years of age!
