On the 1896 marriage record of Conrad's daughter Dora, her last name is spelled CLOUSE, and this spelling is used for Conrad and most of his children last name on the majority of later records. The family is listed on the June 9, 1900 census of Kearney, Buffalo Co., NE, but on the census taken June 18, 1900 of Grand Island, Hall Co., NE Conrad & sons Adam & John are listed in the household of his married daughter Katie Claus Schleicher.
