Zwevegem: Children of Charles-Louis Spincemaille (#0020) (1840-1895)

In 1895 the 8 children of Louis Spincemaille became Orphans , age between 8 and 18 years old. We have beautifull pictures of them in 1898 and also a common photo as adult persons in 1912. Marie and René, the eldest were not married in 1912, but René will marry in 1917, 39 years old. At that time he had built a weaving mill (F: tisseranderie; N: weverij) on the land of the old presbytery and the former bakery.
