Erwin Friedrick George Adrian, youngest of eight children born to Ernest A and Augusta Caroline (Schroeder) Adrian, was born on the family farm in Belknap Township on 15 Oct 1892.

He became a child of God through the sacrament of baptism on 06 Nov 1892 at St John Ev Lutheran Church by the Rev. Joel David Druckenmiller. His godparents were George Bruening and Marie Hopp.

He publicly confessed his belief in Christian doctrine as taught in Luther's catechism at his confirmation on 10 Jun 1906, also at St John Ev Lutheran Church by the Rev. Joel David Druckenmiller. Erwin's memory verse for life is Psalm 145:18-19.

He registered for the World War I draft on 05 Jun 1917 at the age of 24 Years, 7 Months, 21 Days and served his country's Armed Forces from March 29, 1918-Aprilt 8, 1919. At the time of his draft registration he was still living at home but was employed as a driller at Michigan Limestone & Chemical Company.

It was also during this period that he was united in marriage with Lenora L Borrosch, daughter of Wilhelm Borrousch and Louise Hinz, on 28 Mar 1918 at St John Ev Lutheran Church by the Rev. Ernest Ross. Witnesses were Erhardt Schulwitz of Rogers City and Anna Hoffman of Hawks.

To this union were born six children: four daughters: Elaine, Shirley, Iris, and Beverly; and two sons: Erwin William and Ivan Edward. They established their home at 245 N Fifth Street. He was employed at Calcite stone quarry until his retirement.

Nora passed away on 05 Aug 1958. She received a Christian funeral at St John Lutheran Church and her mortal remains were laid to rest at Memorial Park Cemetery.

Erwin passed away at Veterans Administration Hospital in Saginaw on 20 Aug 1959 at the age of 66 Years, 10 Months, 5 Days. He likewise received a Christian funeral at St John Lutheran Church and his mortal remains were laid to rest next to those of his beloved wife at Memorial Park Cemetery.
