New Beginnings for Conrad Adam

16 Aug

Conrad Adam

1854 was a new beginning for Conrad Adam. This is the year he made a life changing decision to move from Tiefenbach, Prussia to Boerne, Texas. Boerne is nestled in the hills of the Texas Hill Country much the same as his home village of Tiefenbach. He was 26 years old and traveled with his younger brother  Carl. They arrived in Galveston on 20 November 1854.

A 157 years later, as I sit in my air conditioned home with all the gadgets that make my life much easier than his,  I just can’t imagine getting on a small wooden ship and heading to a relatively unknown place.  What an adventure it must have been!
