FOLLOWUP

There are several Indiana marriage records for Louisa French that could apply to this person. One is to Jacob Kolb, 3 Jun 1862 (a very early marriage for Louisa). Another is to Peter Hoffman (4 Jan 1874, a somewhat late marriage). However, neither of these nor any of the others could be definitively tied to her.
