Adam came to Beaver Dam late in the 1850's and bought a wagon shop from William SAVAGE. He made heavy wagons and sleighs, making the former during the Civil War for the Army. Later Adam became involved in other ventures, like the tavern and soft drink business. He was twice married, his first wife, Maria FLACH, dying in 1869, after which he soon married Mrs. Agnes FLACH. As near as I can tell, Adam was the father of seventeen children by his two wives.
