Various pieces of data in U. S. census returns and family documents indicate that Elizabeth Margaret Etling's first marriage, probably on 17 March 1887, was to Louis C. Moeser, Maeser, or Meser, but I lack details at this time. A child, Louise or Louisa, commonly known by members of the family as Lulu, was born of this marriage in January 1888. Lulu later became the wife of Harry Streitz.
