Louise Mary "Lou" Deaner Karper
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug., 1860
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1919
Knox County
Illinois, USA

Lou was the daughter of John Deaner and Margaret Kadel. She married Jacob Alonzo Karper ca. 1874. They apparently separated sometime before 1900 and lived apart for the rest of their lives. Lou moved to Illinois either with or followed her daughter, Hattie Karper Looker. The Looker's continued on to Iowa, but Lou stayed in Illinois.

Jacob and Lou were the parents of four children:
1. John Alonzo Karper
2. "Hattie" Harriet Olena (Karper) Looker
3. Arthur D. Karper (died at age 2 months, 20 days)
4. Minnie Elenora Karper (died at age 12 days)

Note: Both spellings, Carper and Karper, appear to have been used by the family. Father Jacob's death certificate shows Carper as does his gravestone. Mother Lou's death certificate shows Karper. Son, John, consistently used the Karper spelling. Daughter, Harriet, got married as "Karper." The records of the deaths of Arthur and Minnie show the Carper spelling.
