I was able to locate LIZZIE'S last name of WUNDERLICH on rootsweb. I found transcribed records for 1962 OBITUARY INDEX for the The Antigo Daily Journal. The records were related to the death of her son GEORGE. (receiver of card).
Fast forward to 1900 census records, GEORGE is married and out of the house and his father ERNEST is living in Milwaukee, WI. with second wife BERTHA KREGER.

According to WISCONSIN MARRIAGE pre-1907, I found a HATTIE MAY PLUGAR, that married August 1, 1897, LANGLADE, WI., Vol. 01, Page 0176.
The next year Joe Hawes and family moved to the village and took up a homestead of one hundred sixty acres. He kept a saloon and hotel for transients. The same year George Wunderlich, Ernest Pleoger and son moved here. Mr. Wunderlich bough a two hundred eight acre farm and put up a sawmill where laths, shingles and lumber were made. Because Mr. Empy was not living on his homestead, Mr. Pleoger contested his right to it and took it. Mr. Pleoger moved to Milwaukee. Later his son, Simon married a daughter of Mr. Snell. They bought a farm in the village and are residents of Elmhurst at present.
There is a good possibility that the below listed family is that of ERNEST PLEOGER (GEORGE'S DAD).
This is only meant as a suggestion for anyone researching this family. More research would be needed to connect the two together.

ERNEST PLOGER (NOTE SPELLING), 49, PRUSSIA
AUGUSTA, WIFE, 48, PRUSSIA
ERNEST, SON, 17, PRUSSIA (father of George?)
FERDINAND, SON, 12, PRUSSIA
BERTHA, DAUGHTER, 11, PRUSSIA
LENA, DAUGHTER, 6, WISCONSIN
BACHEL, DAUGHTER, 2, WISCONSIN (definitely looks like a B but it's probably suppose to be an R for Rachel.
