I went looking for any children of Maurer and Westerman and came up with a DC I think is full of errors. It's for Mary Maurer, but dates fit the Mary wife of Louis Maurer, buried together in the Schwertner Cemetery. You can view their headstones on Find a Grave.

Same informant on both DCs. I wasn't sure of spelling of name, J.C. -----, but found him on the 1920 census in Williamson Co, TX. J.C. Poppelz. Would he be a son-in-law?

Also on the 1920 Washington Co, TX census:

Maurer, Robert, 53, md b Ger, Ger, Ger came to US 1888
" Alvina, wife 48, md, b TX, Ger, Ger
" Otto, s, 22, sgle, b TX
" Ella, d, 19, sgle, b TX
" Rosa, d, 18, sgle, b TX
" Alvina, d, 15, sgle, b TX
" Edwin, s, 10, sgle, b TX

Page 144 is a Walter Maurer, 23, b TX, Ger, Ger and wife Alma, Walter is probably son of the above Robert.

Looks like Robert's DC, it gives name of his father:
