Mary (Maria) Louisa may have been named for her grandmother Mary Louisa Brewer, or for her father's sister, Maria Louisa Caillot Lachance. [Maria Louisa was a very common name among the Mississippi French.]
She was on the 1850 census as "Louisa" and on the 1900 census as "Mary L."
"Louisa Colleyott" was not quite 17 years old when she married George Mills Goodwin from Oregon Co, Mo. (half-brother of William Sampson Huddleston, her aunt's husband). They had one son, Joseph. Louisa & her sister Sarah Jane must have gone to Oregon Co., Mo to visit with their aunt Eliza (Brewer) who had married Wm. Sampson Huddleston and lived there, because both Louisa and Sarah married men from Oregon Co.
George evidently died. The circumstances & time are unknown, but those years during the Civil War were very tumultous and extremely dangerous for anyone (especially men) living in Missouri. Maybe he joined the army and died in battle. There was a George W. Goodwin in Co. B, 8th Missouri Confederate Infantry.
She evidently went home after George Goodwin died because she married in Iron Co, Mo.
Mary Louisa married again to John J. Aldridge in Iron Co, Mo., June 28,1866
In 1876 they were in Liberty twp., Iron Co, Mo.
In 1900 they were in Iron Co, Mo, her mother Polly Colyott was living with them.
