Louisa was born in 1835 and died in 1870 at age 35. She is not included in the 1870 Michigan census. Her name appears most often as "Louisa" but also sometimes as "Louise." Her name may also have been spelled "Loesa" and later Americanized to "Louisa."

One of the "unknown" photos in my family albums is a photo of Nellie Slick. Because she shares the last name of Slick she is most likely a relative of Ethel Granger through Louisa Slick Nafus's family.
