John SCHWARTZ
Maria Louisa STRAUB
Husband:  John SCHWARTZ / SCHWARZ
Birth:  1848/9, Germany
Death:  1889, presumably in St. Louis, MO
Occupation:  tailor
Parents:  born in Germany
Marriage:  by 1883
Wife:  Maria Louisa STRAUB
Birth:  11 Sep 1854, Switzerland
Death:  1891, presumably in St. Louis, MO
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Jacob STRAUB
Mother:  Anna Maria HAAS
Children born in MO, presumably in St. Louis, MO:
1.  Louisa SCHWARTZ, b. Apr 1880; d. by 1883
2.  Louisa / Louise "Lulu" SCHWARTZ, b. Sep 1883; d. 1966, St. Louis, MO; bur. Bellefontaine Cem.; never married
3.  Edward W. SCHWARZ, b. Jun 1886
4.  Clara SCHWARTZ, b. Dec 1887; m. Frederick Louis DIESTER; lived St. Louis; no issue

Either the Louisa born in 1880 died young or her birth month and year in the 1900 census are wrong.  The former seems more likely, and it's not at all unusual for the next child to be given the same name as a child recently deceased.
