In the 1900 census, William and Louisa were living at 329 Barker St. in Clinton Iowa with their five children, ages 9-16.

By the time of the 1920 census, William's wife Louisa has died and William has married Mabel. None of his children are in the household. In 1930 William still resides in Clinton but at 81 years of age he is a roomer with the Don Clemmens family.
Notes for Louisa M. (Spouse 1)
Found a birth record for Maria Luise Hendrich with same birth date and location as other documentation I have. So making assumption that this is our Louisa since I also have a document with her name as Mary Louise Hendrick and name have been known to change through the years and with immigration.
These records were later confirmed by a descendant of her sister Lily who made a trip to Tottleben and found the entries from old church records.
Misc. Notes
All family information related to this record with the exception of her birth date and birthplace came from an IGI record off of Familysearch.com
Misc. Notes
Louisa was sickly and was sent to Colorado to live with her sister. They used to ride the horses really fast although they weren't supposed to do it. She taught school and piano in Colorado.
