Louis Schmidt Jr.

Louis Schmidt, Jr.

Louis Schmidt, Jr. son of Louis and Caroline (Schiessel) Schmidt Sr., was born 22 March 1885 in Bavaria. He worked most of his life as a painting contractor and landscape artist.

Louis married twice. First to Alma Dunmann on 30 December 1904 in Milwaukee by the Justice of the Peace. According to their marriage certificate, Alma was born in Milwaukee, the daughter of Otto Dunmann and Mary Puls. The couple were married with consent of the county clerk. This usually means that the wife was under the age of 18. Emma Schmidt, Louis’ sister, was one of the witnesses for the ceremony.

Alma and Louis had two children. About 1908 they moved to Joliet, Illinois. They were later divorced. Alma married a second time in June 1913 to Daniel Graf. Daniel adopted the two children, Louis and Caroline and raised them as his own. Both children married. Alma died circa 1942 and is buried in Milwaukee.

Louis then married Mary Dalian. Mary was born 2 March 1886, daughter of Franz S. and Agnes (Samide) Thelian, Sr. They had six children which we believe were all born in Joliet.

Louis died circa 1953. Mary died after 1945 in Joliet.
