Commemorated institution(s)
Relation between commemorated persons nuclear or extended family, exact relation unknown
Relation specification The exact relation between Vaes and Elysabet is unclear. The necrology of the monastery commemorates a married couple by the name of Servatius and Marie Noellens. If Vaes Nuellens is indeed the same person as Servatius Noellens, it is less likely that a married couple is commemorated on the slab, unless he married twice. Vaes and Elysabet may well have been family members.
