My wife's great grandfather, Ludwig Louis SCHMIESING was married to a Wilhelmin Caroline WEGEHOFT in 1875 and we believe in Indiana.  Their first child, my wife's grandfather, Frederick SCHMIESING was born in Indiana in 1877.  They later moved to Cincinnati where they ran a dairy.  In 1892 Caroline died and is buried in the Vine Street Hill Cemetery in Cincinnati.  In about 1893 Louis remarried to Louisa BALLMAN in Covington, Kentucky and by 1897 the family moved to Minnesota.  We have not been able to find anything on the first wife, Caroline, other than where she is buried, and there seem to be any mention of her by the family.  We can not find anything out about her but believe they lived in Ripley County or another County close to Cincinnati.  We have visited her grave site in Cincinnati. Thank you for help that you can give.
