I have 4 with Catherine Verhaeghe,  4 with Adelia Viaene & 1 with Colette Dehem.  Were there more!!!!

You seem to have missed one or two ... ;D ;D ;D

There were at least:
5 children with Collette
9 children with Catherine (in less than 12 years of marriage!)
6 children with "Rosalia"or "Adelia"

FYI
Son Carolus Ludovicus (b 1845) had been quite active with (at least) 11 children, but unfortunately nearly half of them died very young. I haven’t checked, but it is quite likely that the same had happened to many of his (half) siblings...

Hi TreeSpirit

I have now found 14 children born betwen Catherine & Adelia, but still have only 1 for Colette . Can I ask for help for Colette Amelia Dehem.

18 Jul 1810 - Marriage of the parents: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9G2X-4RC?i=90
Their 5 children:
#1 Daughter Virginie Amelia – Nov 1810 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9GK9-5PG?i=1047
#2 Daughter Lucie Catherine – Feb 1812 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GG2X-SPW?i=1047
#3 Son Clet Joseph - Apr 1813: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GGK1-P9K?i=360
#4 Son Alexandre - Sep 1921:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9GK9-ZC9?i=824 – dad is “Alexandre Joseph”, but correct age, occupation and wife
#5 Daughter Marie Julie - Sep 1822 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GPZ7-9SX3?i=185


There’s a suspicous gap between #3 and #4. Dry spell, did I miss something, or did they live somewhere else during those years?

FYI Two girls Amelia Cornille and Rosalie Natalie Legrand are born in Ieper in 1813 and 1817, but their parents are Charles Jacques Legrand  and Anne Therese Deweerdt. I believe that Charles might have been a brother of your guy.
