I believe the Lewis you are referring to is enumerated with his parents in the U.S. 1880 Census in Du Quoin, Perry County, Illinois. The family falls across two pages in the census.
1880 Family listed is listed as:
Fred Age 37, b Hanover, Parents b. Hanover
Caroline Wife Age 29, b. IL, Parents b. Nassau
Occupation: Keeping House
Odo M Son Age 06, b. IL
Lewis Son Age 04, b. IL
Catherine R Dau Age 01, b. IL

This same family, of Fred Tecklenburg, appears in the 1900 census, where Louis is listed as born Nov 1877.
Hope this helps,
