Wilhelm Rau does not appear in the 1897 census.
It is most likely that he had already passed away before that year, probably before 1850, when the interim, male-only census was taken. His death would have been noted in 1850 and not repeated in the 1857 census. Had he survived, he would have been 105 years old.
