In 1817, the Adolf Family, emigrated from West Prussia to Bessarabia as part of a resettlement.  They settled in the new town of Briene, sharing in the communal life of these German towns, where everyone lived  in the village which centered around the Lutheran Church and School, plying their trades and working small fields in the surrounding countryside, as they had in Germany.  KCC History - p. 355

Christian may have immigrated to South Oklahoma, then to Denver before coming to the Settlement where he built a blacksmith shop west of the Hope Church. -- Koss notes
