Louis Morton Alsdorf was the third child and first son for his parents, Frederick Louis Alsdorf and Katherine Dorothy Marks Alsdorf, coming along after his two older sisters, Ruth Harriet and Izetta Elizabeth Alsdorf.

The three children contracted whooping cough in April or May 1912, with only Louis succumbing to the disease. Because Katie had just delivered her fourth child on May 26th, she could not accompany Louis' body back to their family's hometown of Topeka, Kansas for burial. Izetta later said that it was the saddest train trip she ever took with her older sister and father.

After Louis' death, his parents went on to have three more boys (Fred, Julius and Albert) and one more girl (Mary); but the family never forgot him. Louis' mother always kept his christening gown, little black leather shoes, and the calling cards from his funeral. They were lovingly handed down to Mary's daughter, Tamara Brockman Foran, where they are still cherished today.
