On Footnote.com, in the St. Louis City Directories, I was able to find Louisa on 27 different years from 1882 to 1921. I also found her as Louisa Miller in 1868 & 1869. Additionally, on her daughter Pauline's Death Certificate, I found that Louisa was born in Biedenkopf, Germany. I have included all of this information in her updated biography at Louisa_Ryan. (This biography is now seperated from Patrick Ryan).
On Footnote.com, I was able to find this Patrick Ryan in the St. Louis City Directories for 15 different years. This allowed me to trace his and the family's movements from 1864 to 1881. The 1882 City Directory also allowed me to confirm the date of Patrick's death. With this additional information, I had enough data to seperate the biographies of Patrick and his wife Louisa. See Patrick_Ryan for this additional information.

I recently acquired the death certificate for Pauline Rutledge. Additionally, from Footnote.com, I had obtained some St. Louis City Directories that included Pauline O'Donnell. With what I already had, this allowed me to create a biography for Pauline. See biography.
