Montbeliard Settlers: A Short History
    http://www.montbeliard.org/


Vuilquet (not Wilkie) There seems to be no connection between Vuilquet
and the Wilkie family of the Lunenburg area, who were Loyalists of Scots ancestry.
This is mentioned because the name Vuilquet also ended up being referred to as
Wilkie, and appears as such on the Montbeliard Monument.
