Rough translation from freetranslation.com:
Johann Adam Brohm, in his home at the Troy Pike, five miles from local city, died on 11. February d. J. after the well-known German American settlers surrounded Siechthum Johann Adam Brohm, at the age of about 72 years.
In the Baden office Wertheim on 1. Born January 1828, was Mr Brohm at a young age and was taken over in local Ocean City. In the terrible floods 34 years ago were his wife and his only child swallowed up by the waves of the Miami. In 1868 Mr Brohm married for the second time. His surviving wife was born a Katharine three. He leaves no children of his own, but an adult adoptive son.
JOHN A. BROHM
He and his wife, Catherine, owned a farm in Mad River Twp., Montgomery County, Ohio.
They adopted my grandpa, John Henry Heindl, in 1880 when his mother died. He was 2 yrs. old and grew up an only child, not knowing his natural parents.
His older siblings, Michael and Ann, had been searching for him and upon finding out where he was went to visit him when he was about 20 to tell him he was a Heindl, not a Brohm. He took back his name before he married in 1902.
I wish I could tell them what a fine job they did raising him. He and his wife, Margaret, raised 6 sons and one daughter, worked hard and were a honest, trustworthy couple.
