Louis is listed on his marriage registration as a widower. His first wife was also a Laura, and per the birth registration of their son Louis, see below, her maiden name was Hill. They are listed in the 1901 census as follows. I believe that there is an error in listing Louis's year of birth.

Louis Wilcox July 31, 1865 (age 45) A birth year of 1856, as suggested by his marriage registration, is closer to correct.
Laura Wilcox April 3, 1854 (age 36)
Maud Wilcox March 7, 1880 age 21
John Wilcox August 23, 1881 age 19
Louis F. Wilcox August 6, 1889, age 11.
