She was found on a passenger list with Vital Eugene Louis DeBacker on October 29, 1883 in New York City, New York; The family arrived aboard the SS Nederland from Antwerp, Belgium on October 29, 1883 in at New York City, New York. Their place of origin is shown as France – a mistake made by the Dutch captain probably because the parents and the children all spoke French. From New York, the DeBacker’s next destination was the remote corner of northeast Kansas some 1400 miles away. There is little doubt that in 1883 that they would have traveled by any other means than by way of the railroads.2 She was ill with cancer in 1899.
