I can't find Louis & Emma in 1920. As we know, Eva & Edith were already married by then. I question whether Emma's last name was actually Jean, and that perhaps it was closer to Wells/Wills. According to the 1900 Census, Louis was born May 1862. I did not find a baptism matching that birth month & year. Sorry I couldn't help you more. Good luck in your search. Annie
