Sentimental Sunday: The Adam Kids

Adam_Kids_opt

This is one of my all time favorite photographs. On the left side of the picture Adalbertha Bergmann Adam is gazing adoringly at her grandchildren, Willie, Eugene (standing on the chair), and Hildegarde. Eugene was born in June of 1898 so I’m estimating the picture was taken in 1900. They are the children of Julius and Ida Haufler Adam. We even get a peek into one of the rooms in the house that Adalbertha and Conrad built. It’s a fabulous picture for a sentimental Sunday!

Adalbertha Bergmann Adam 1912

Adam Descendants at Julius Adam Home in 1912

Celebration? Relatives visiting on Sunday afternoon? I don’t know, but I love the picture! The family is posed in front of the Julius Adam home on a sunny day in 1912. Adalbertha Bergmann Adam is front row center. On her left is Bertha Adam Froebel Haby, her daughter, Erna Adam, her granddaughter, has her hand on her chair, on her right is Kathinka Adam Toepperwein, her oldest daughter.

Left to right:
