In the 1870 Census, Hugo and his 3 sisters are listed in New York City with Julia and Ernest Richter as parents.[1] In the 1880 census, he's listed in New York city with two of his sisters and Sarah and George Wiegand as parents.[2] Ernest Richter and George Wiegand were travelling musicians and their wives were sisters, all of whom were living together at the time of the 1860 census.[3] After 1870, there appears to be no record of Julia Stein, Ernest Richter, or their daughter Paulina. “Dollie” in the 1880 census is the right age to be “Julia” from the 1870 census. One possible explanation is that Ernest, Julia and Paulina all died sometime between 1870 and 1880, after which Amelia/Sarah/Augusta took in her sister’s surviving children.
