What Is That Letter?

I am working on a transcription of this list of heirs and legatees for an upcoming Casefile Clues article. I find myself debating the first name on the list. It is intended to be Louise/Louisa Meyer(s), oldest surviving daughter of the individual whose will is being admitted to probate. What I'm wondering is if her name isn't being written as "Lou I Myer." 

There is a Louisa Mundy further down on the list--showing a "Louisa."
There is also an "Ida Trautvetter" down on the list as well, showing how the writer made their "I." 

I'm still thinking. Feel free to post any thoughts.
