Louis and Joseph (1886-1970) were said to be the sons of Maria Heidenfelder and George Herrmann. George Herrmann was a guard at the Hospital of the Holy Ghost in Wiesenfeld, Germany. It is possible that he was the father of both Ludwig and Joseph. He may have intended to marry Maria, but supposedly was killed in a logging accident along the Main River in 1866, just before Joseph's birth.

Louis, his mother and his brother Joseph emigrated to the US in 1887, when Louis was 8-years-old. They settled in Pacific, MO.
