FASSIEAUX in Jemappes 1918

I am looking for any connection to the relatives of Rosa FASSIEAUX who lived at the following address in November 1918:
Rue des trois Hurees.
No. 1/11 106 Jemappes Belgique
Hainault ( ez Mons)

The address is from a letter written in January 1919 by Rosa Fassieaux to the family of a Canadian soldier who was killed near Jemappes on Nov. 10, 1918.
The soldier stayed with the Fassieaux family on Nov. 9 and they showed him great kindness and hospitality. Most important, they provided a coffin and flowers for his funeral and tended his grave in the Jemappes cemetery near their house.
The soldier's relatives would like to know if there are any descendants of that family. His nephew is still alive and is interested in what happened to his uncle that day.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Bonjour Cédric,
There is a family link, I believe.
In my original e-mail I wrote about Rosa Fassieaux and Lieut. Frederick Longworth, the Canadian soldier killed near Jemappes on Nov. 18,1918.
Rosa's granddaughter, who is Rosa Libert, wrote to me last year and explained some of the family history. You must be related to Mme. Libert.
She told me, if I understand the story correctly, that a relative called Gaston Faissieaux was killed in 1944 during the war. His father, Sylvain Fassieaux, buried Gaston in the same cemetery as Lieut. Longworth.
Is any of this correct? My apologies if I am wrong.
Please write again if you have more questions.
