Cheri, Where were your Albert and Emma during the 1900 census? Ours were renting at 502 Pennisylvania Ave, Sheboygan, WI. They had one child that year, a girl named Lucille who was born Mar of 1899. Albert was a "lumber dealer".
Don't dismiss the fact that many names were spelled phonetically or mispelled by people copying.
