|Birth: ||Dec. 7, 1874|
|Death: ||Aug. 23, 1917|
Son of Henry Carstens.
Victim of the Camp Logan riot.
Although the main body of the mutinous soldiers headed down Roy Street, it is clear from the other reports of casualties that such a large body of soldiers fanned out across several blocks and numerous streets, shooting at random targets and demonstrating their well-honed marksmanship skills at any opportunity that presented itself.
E. A. Thompson was among the first to be killed by the rioters, presumably near Washington Avenue. Adam R. Carstens,
a 48 year old house painter with a large family, was shot and killed near Parker Street and Center Street. . . .
