Saline County

As far as I know, Victor Vifquain and his family were the only Belgians in Saline County  in 1860. But from 1864, coming from Missouri, John Venlemans ( a brother of Marie Caroline Venlemans - Vifquain ) resided in the County, returning in Missouri in 1869.

The Census of 1860 for Saline County state :
Victor Vasquin 24 Farmer No real estate 550$ of personal property, born in France
Mary Vasquin, 24, born in France (Marie Caroline)
Susan Vasquin, 5 m. born in Nebraska (Victor Emmanuel)
