Marriage records of William Muster and Emma Mouldenhauer Miller, August 23, 1925.
This was the second marriage for both. William was fifty-seven; Emma was thirty-nine.
William died of a heart attack in January 1926, so the marriage only lasted five months.
Their son, William, was born ten months after the marriage.
As a widowed single mother, Emma moved in with her parents.*

The 1930 census shows Emma Mouldenhauer as one of eight people living at 6218 South Lincoln, Chicago, Illinois.
Her two sons, Edward Miller and William Muster, are both under the name Miller (her first husband's name).
The family never called the younger William "Junior," because William Sr. died before his son was born.
Other residents in the home: Emma's parents Ernest and Ottie; Emma's brother, sister-in-law, and niece.
The grandson of the nice, Elaine, contacted us and supplied information about the Mouldenhauer line in Europe.*
