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.

He and his wife and children are recorded in the 1900 Federal Census for Kansas in the town of Pleasanton. He was a dry goods salesman. He and his parents were born in the country of Austria as it was known at that time in history.

In the 1910 Federal Census of Kansas he was described as a dry goods salesman living with his children and his niece Sadie Glucklich, age 20. His birthplace was recorded as Germany, and his parents were born in Germany as it was known at that time in history.

Later Census data indicates that he came to the US in 1861. He would have been only 14 years old. Some census data and his obituary state he came to the US in 1865.

Additional research may have located his arrival on the ship Athena on April 13, 1866 in New York. An Adolph Fischer, a merchant, age 17 arrived from Bremen, Germany on that date. Ship Arrival microfilm M237, Roll 263, Frame 362 of 549.

He stated his birth country was Germany on the manifest of these ship records. Family tradition is that he was from Prague.

On the same ship, the Athena, arrived on the same date, April 13, 1866 is Hermann Fischer, age 17. He was recorded as a Seaman. Any connection is speculative.

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. 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. His obituary states he was born in Slattina, Bohemia.

Possible data from is his marriage record in St. Louis dated 7 November 1880.

There are many towns with this name. 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.
