The Columbus Telegram, May 22, 1914
LOUIS--Mrs. Katherine Louis, an early settler of Columbus township, passed away last Sunday afternoon at the family home half a mile east of the city. Her death was due to a stroke of paralysis which she experienced four weeks before, and which left her helpless. Funeral services were held at the residence at 2 p.m. yesterday and at the German Reform church in Columbus at 2:30 p.m. Rev. R. Neumarker conducted the services. Mrs. Louis was the widow of Jacob Louis, who enjoyed the distinction of being one of the first settlers in this vicinity, having come here in 1856. Nine years later Mr. Louis went back to Ohio where he married Mrs. Louis, then Miss Katherine Engel, who had come over from Germany six years before. Together they came to Columbus where they were destined to spend the remainder of their days. Mr. Louis died in 1909. Mrs. Louis was more than 72 years of age, having been born April 2, 1842. She leaves three sons Charles, Jake and George, all residing east of Columbus, and one daughter, Mrs. Katherine Stevenson, who also resides on a farm between Columbus and Richland. Among the relatives who were here yesterday to attend the funeral were her nephew, George Engel, and family, of Clarks, Neb.
