Lillie ZUEHLKE - mother was Margaret WILLIAMS

I am trying to ascertain whatever happened to Lillie ZUEHLKE.
Lillie was born on July 10, 1907 in Milwaukee Wisconsin (WI). She is my grandmother's half sibling, perhaps unbeknownst to her or her family....
Her parents are Anton ZUEHLKE & Margaret WILLIAMS. Anton ZUEHLKE was born in 1872 and Margaret (sometimes also seen as Catherine Margaret) was born about 1875.
Anton & the then Margaret (WILLIAMS) HEY, were married February 17, 1906. (Margaret was living as a widow in 1900 census.) Margaret's father is Jacob WILLIAMS. Her mother's first name is usually slaughtered, but is probably something like Kuniguende SCHLEICHER.
My grandmother was born in 1908.
We found evidence in the early 1920s that Anton requested a divorce which was granted. he subsequently married another widow, Emily (LUEBKE) LEMKE.
My grandmother had always told our family that he (Anton) had abandoned them (her mother & a brother). We now believe Anton was never married to my grandmother's mother, but had two children out-of-wedlock, since there was no divorce granted until the 1920s.
We would love to find Lillie and know whether or not she ever had children of her own. My mother is almost 81 and we are wondering if she has any cousins out there! :D
Does anyone have any information on Lillie ZUEHLKE???
