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 Her married name was Pessemier.
