You are very welcome ...

FYI There is more online stuff for this family, but I did not want to overwhelm you too much until you've had some time to process what's already been supplied

Yes I bet there is, those Belgium record seem to have so much information on them.
I have added all the children from his first marriage, will add the half siblings later.
I am so glad you found Charles (Louis) because I got a DNA match with a tree with him on & the parents names they had were so similar, A lot of people have him in their tree with the same details, but I never copy trees, I prefer finding facts about my ancestors.
On another note, as you seem to know how to navigate the records I wonder if you could do me a kindness?
Maria Valerie Lippens married Josephus Van De Putte Jan 26 1898, in Eekloo (I have those details). His Birth was 12 Feb 1876 also in Eekloo, they had 3 children that I know, Margarita 1898, Hortence 1901 & Magdelana 1903. They fled Belgium some time during WW1 & settled in the UK, But not Josephus, I was told that he was killed when they fled, would you have any clues as to how I could find his death?
Once again, I thank you.

Unfortunately not many of Belgium’s BMD certs have been transcribed, so it is a bit hard when the search criteria can’t be narrowed down. And of course there is a possibility that he did not die in Belgium.
Without any luck I checked Eeklo’s 10-year death indices for 1900-1910 and 1910-1920 and tried a few other places in the area as well. Eeklo is close to the Dutch border, but nothing to be found there either. Also nothing useful on the sites (that I am aware of) listing WW1 victims.   

The last time that Josephus turns up is in the 1900-1910 population register for Eeklo (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSYT-L3VD-5?i=287 …  fyi occupation = “werktuigkundige” i.e. engineer/mechanic). There is no mention of him moving or being deceased by 1910 so the next register might give some clues, but unfortunately it isn’t online (yet?).
