Paul and Daniel appear to be Ursula's children from a former marriage.  Or they may be children from a former marriage of his, but given Ursula's age, more likely they are hers.

Are Paul and Daniel Joseph's children from a prior marriage?  Or are they Ursula's?  Given Ursula's age, my bet is that they are her children from a prior marriage and that, being toddler and infant when Joseph married her, he adopted them.  But where's Andrew?  Listed two households from Joseph's first cousin and brother-in-law, Casper STROUP
