The family and dwelling numbers make no sense.  Charles GREEPKE and John EDWARDS could hardly be members of Jacob's family, and it's absurb that Jacob's children would be living in a separate domicile.  This census-enumerator appeares to have misunderstood the intended meaning of dwelling and family numbers because, throughout his enumeration, his use of them is simply bizarre.  I think the dwelling and family numbers are best ignored, along with Mr. GREEPKE and Mr. EDWARDS.  I was barely able to decipher Jacob's occupation, so I may not have it right, but it definitely was not "Tinner."

Good grief.  Charlotte and Henry are OK, and Leroy(?) has to be Louis.  But how in the world did the enumerator turn Amelia into… whatever that name is?

Jacob's wife is obviously still the same woman, so it's hard to figure the name change.  Is it enumerator error?
