Jacques Joseph Demeuse's wife, was Jeanne Masset, b in 1813 in Orbais.To
find his parents I would order the microfilms at your local FHC.
I could only find reference to Walhain-St-Paul, Brabant, but I bet it's
the right place. Let's see if someone here can confirm.
These microfilms here should help:
(Births) Geboorten 1796-1812/ (Marriages) Huwelijken 1796-1812 on
Geboorten 1813-1860 microfilm#1114614
Huwelijken 1801-1860 Microfilm#1114615

You might also try to contact the Yahoogroup for the Brabant in Belgium.
There is a group for the Walloon and Vlaams Brabants both.
They have experts who could guide you there too.
Wish I had those films here but I don't... Sorry...
For dates prior to 1796, you will want to check the parish records.
