Lou was born about 1869 in Wisconsin. (1910 census)
Her Thunderbird Clan name was given as WaConChaHaJaPinWinKah, which is for Wakąjahajapįwįga, "Beautiful Thunderbird That Sees Something" (1911 census), from Wakąjá, "Thunderbird"; hajá, "to see (something)"; pį, "good, fine, nice, beautiful"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This makes reference to the idea that Thunderbirds shoot lightning by blinking their eyes.
In the 1910 census, her Hocak name was given as HaZheKah, which is for Hažiga, "Mature", from haži, "ripe, mature"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. (1910 census) This is not a clan name, but appears to be an honorific appellation.
Although her husband Charley could speak English, she was unacquainted with the tongue. (1910 census)
1940 — prior to this year, she had been living with her husband on their farm in LaGrange, Wisconsin. However, in 1940 she was living with her son James in Wyeville, Monroe County, Wisconsin. (census)
Since she appears in the 1940 census, she died some time after that date.
