Image of the house in St. Gilles:
But I must disappoint you; she was not married when she left for St. Gilles. She must have met her husband in Belgium.
I did find some info on a Johannes Antonius (French: Jean Antoine) van Gellicum, also resident of The Hague. He was not a general, though. He was a cavalry captain with the Dutch hussars. In 1924 he was retired and left for Merano.
If you like, I can try and find out more about him.
