Hello, I am also descended from Louis. I don't have much more information other than his full birthdate is 6 Feb 1822 in Polle, Hanover, Germany.He died 1904 in Dixon, Lee, Illinois. Came to America in 1848. First to Luz Co. Pennsylvania for several months. Then to Grand Detour Illinois (friends Zumdahl). Wife and Brother arrived 06 Jun 1848 via Bremen (took 7 wks.).Occupation: farmer. I also have information on his wife Caroline Rosendahl and their 10 children that you probably already have. If not, let me know. Please also post any other info you learn. Thanks!
