I noticed the gap between births of Maria, 1854, & Johanna, 1863. That could mean that other children died young, or perhaps Elizabeth was the first wife and remarriage was delayed a few years.
FamilySearch database of the 1880 Census, Domonic, 29, miller and ag. agent, he & parents b. Luxembourg; wife Katy, 22, Iowa Hanover Luxembourg; son Henry, 2, IA. [Unless this Henry died young and another was born in 1882, the birth year should be ca. 1878.]
For proof of the marriage, go to USGenWeb > Iowa > Jackson County. The search engine shows Catholic marriage of Domin(i)que KRIER, 5 Jan. 1878, to Katherine HOXMIER. Since the marriage was Catholic, there should be more information available from the church, but, for privacy reasons, they'll probably want to check your relationship to the family.
