File copy courtesy of Esther Young, Burlington, Colorado

         Andrew Adolf was born in Brijene, Russia, on Dec. 24 1873, and passed away on Oct.. 19, 1932, at his home, north of Bethune, at the age of 58 years, 9 months and 22 days. At the age of 14 he came to America with his brother, arriving at Scotland, South Dakota. Soon after he came to Denver, where he worked for a few years. Then he came to Kit Carson county where he later took up a homestead northwest of Burlington, where [he] lived until his death. On Feb 12, 1899, he was united in marriage with Margaret Schlichenmayer.

     He was one of the successful farmers of the settlement, a quiet and peace-loving man and a devout Christian, and a friend to all. A member of the Congregational Church, he seldom missed church services on Sundays. He had been ailing for a few months and was confined to his bed for the last two weeks. He will be greatly missed by the family and his many friends.

      He leaves his wife and three daughter and five sons to mourn his death. They are Mrs. John Gollie of Winona, Kans., Mrs. John Gramm, Martha, Jacob, William, John Emmanuel, Fred, Dave. Also two brothers, August and William of Bethune. He was buried in the cemetery near the church.
