Britzius File II p. 17 - "Adam's obituary said he moved with his parents to Quincy Township of Olmsted County, Minn., in 1864. In about 1887 they moved into Rochester, Minn.. He devoted his early days to carpentry, then became a mail carrier. He was superintendent of the German Evangelical (Lutheran) Sunday School. . . .In 1904 they purchased a farm in Marshall County (SD), near Kidder (and not far from the larger town of Aberdeen.) He died of cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 59. Bd. Britton, S Dak.."
