In seinem Heim an der Troy Pike, fünf Meilen von hiesiger Stadt, starb am 11. Februar d. J. nach langwierigem Siechthum der bekannte deutschamerikanische Ansiedler Johann Adam Brohm, im Alter von etwas über 72 Jahren.
Im Badischen Amt Wertheim am 1. Januar 1828 geboren, war Herr Brohm schon in jungen Jahren über's Weltmeer gezogen und hatte sich in hiesiger Stadt angesiedelt. Bei dem furchtbaren Hochwasser vor 34 Jahren wurden ihm seine Frau und sein einziger Knabe von den Wellen des Miami verschlungen. Im Jahr 1868 heirathete Herr Brohm zum zweiten Mal. Seine überlebende Frau war eine geborene Katharine Dreier. Eigene Kinder hinterläßt er nicht, wohl aber einen erwachsenen Adoptivsohn.

Rough translation from

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.


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.
