Notes: It looks like the Polish language is an enumerator’s error as both their parents spoke “German”. Paul is Charles’ son from his first marriage. Walter Bischoff, Charles and Elizabeth’s first child, died in 1885 at age two. Robert and Alma had just been married the previous December, and they soon moved out to another house at 1637 R. St for one year (with the Schaellers). Robert's mother was born in Illinois, not Indiana. This part of DC is called “Hamburg” - it is near the White House, and was planned in 1768 by Jakob Funck as a German community.
