20 April, 1910; Census Place: Chicago Ward 22, Cook, Illinois; Roll: T624_264; Page: 3A; Enumeration District: 950; Image: 1001
William Holzapfel age 37 born Germany, married once for 9 years, came to US 1889, cook in saloon
Adelina M Holzapfel age 34 born France abt 1876, second marriage for 9 years, stated bore two children, stated one of those children living, came to US 1891
John Holzapfel age 15 born IL record states father from Germany and mother France.

If this is correct John was not a Holzapfel but Bobzien. He and Violet were Adeline's children with her first husband who was Frank. No Illinois marriage found. Used the free website and typed in only "bob" to find the variation of spellings.

Only found a Frank Bobzin married Martha Weins 11/21/1898 in Lake county IL which is where William J Holzapfel was listed in 1900 census.

I'm thinking Mrs. Barbara Peters was the mother of the foster mother Anna Buehler not mother of Adeline.

This answers what happened to Frank Buehler.
