Sorry Susan, that doesn't help. Louis is a tough nut to crack. Along with his wife Julia. One thing that is wrong is in the 1850 census, they have a son Herman who happens to be four years old (born in Germany). Louis and Julia didn't marry until Nov 1848. Yet Herman is Herman Muller, unfortunately he dies in the last months of the Civil War in Morganza, LA (no death record in West Bend or Port Washington). Julia may have had a child by another man (maybe he died) or Julia was pregnant when Louis left for America (the timing would be right) but not married to him (?).
