Clara (dau/ 1st wife, Elizabeth)
Florence (dau/ 2nd wife, Anne)

Frances (dau/ 2nd wife, Anne)
Also living with Herman is Mary Ebbing and son Frank Ebbing. Mary being listed as WIDOWED and a SISTER to Herman. I believe this to be his sister Mary Epping who, as far as I could find, never married. In later census records, she goes by Mary Epping (always with son Frank Epping) and varies around different marital status including SINGLE, MARRIED and WIDOWED. I believe her to have had Frank out of wedlock and was single all her life. She is listed in Epping In-Laws.
