About Adolph Fischer

Adolph Fisher is in the 1870 Federal Census in Missouri, Washington County, Breton Township, Osage Post Office on 26 July 1870. He worked as a clerk in the store of Abram Block, and his wife Sophia Schwartz Block. Adolph later married Celia Schwarzkopf, the niece of Abram Block.

He is in the same location ten years later in the 1880 Census.

Later Census data indicates that he came to the US in 1861. He was 14 years old.

He stated his birth country was Austria. Family tradition is that he was from Prague.

A record match in My Heritage and on FamilySearch Family Tree states that he was born in Slatina, Brno South Moravia Bohemia. Record #LH8Y-Q1M by Daniel Rohrback. Possibly from his marriage record in St. Louis dated 7 November 1880. There are many towns with this name. There is Slatina in Klatovy, and in Plzen, and in Litomerice. Litomerice is only 30 miles NorthWest of Prague. This record also states that he was buried in Pine Lawn Cemetery, Kansas. Or Bourbon, Arkansas? Error to be corrected in the future.

I selected him for the town in Prachen. Could be changed in the future to Slatina in Litomerice as he stated to his family that he was born in Prague. No Adolph Fischer has appeared in the Prague Fischer family census records. Should be checked against Slatina-Brno records for assignment there.
