    • Notes 
      • Rudolf and Bessie were living at 3048 S. Turner Ave. in 1919 when their daughter Helen was born and died.


        In 1921, at the time of the birth of Erwin, they are living at 2417 South Clifton Park, Chicago, Ill.


        Look at Marriage Records: It appears that Bessie dies in 1926, but he probably remarries to Susan. Maybe she already had two children.

        In this 1930 census, it looks like Rudy is married to Susan, and that Chester and Mildred (Susan's children)are living with them.
