     There appears to be no further information on this family.
With one surviving male, as listed above, it would seem that the 
name disappeared from the area after this point in time. Whether
he died or left the area for some reason is not known. There seems
no connection to the Wilkie family of the area, who were Loyalists
of Scots ancestry. I mention this because the name Vuilquet also
ended up being referred to as Wilkie, and appears as such on the
Montbeliard Monument.
