Two other early settlers on Lyon creek were John Adam Biegert and his brother David. Their father, John Adam Biegert, had died in 1843. In 1845 Mrs. Biegert married Jacob Hosch. With their mother, Mrs. Katherina Biegert, and their sister, Katherina, step father, and half sisters, they had come from Germany to the United States in 1852, landing at New York in November. The Biegert family stopped in the town of Manchester, N. Y., until March, 1853, when they moved to Ohio.
Adam Biegert, as he was generally called, stayed in Ohio until 1857, when he came to Kansas and took up a homestead in what is now Lyon township, Geary county, on section 30, town 13, range 5. He was born March 17, 1835, in Eichenhain, Austria,(note: Ichenheim, Grand Duchy of Baden--now Germany, on the Rhine river) and died at his home in Geary county, May 9, 1912. He is buried in the Lyona cemetery.
