Birth: Jun. 29, 1892
Clayton County
Iowa, USA
Death: Nov. 13, 1933
Cook County
Illinois, USA

World War I Veteran?
Adolph was the 14th and final child of Herman Alt and Catherine Hähn Alt, I bet she was glad of that! He was born at Clayton, Iowa on June 29th, 1892 and lived in the area most of his life. On December 9th, 1925, he married Helena (Lena) Blume in Dubuque, Iowa, then they moved back to Garnavillo, Iowa, where they lived until Adolph's death on November 13th, 1933 in Proviso Township, near Chicago, Illinois. His death record lists his residence as Garnavillo, Ia, so he most likely died of an accidental cause.
As best as I have found, they had only one child, Allen Arnold Alt, who died at the young age of nine.

Note: I walked this cemetery in July 2012 and was not able to locate his grave, many of the grave markers appeared to have been damaged or destroyed.
