Thank you for the info. I have the majority of it including marriage liscence, Naturalization papers, WW1 Draft papers. My Dad is the eldest of the 3 grandchildren so I have the originals or copies.

What I'm looking for is the names of Adam's uncle that he came over with and see if he possibly had family already living here in Cleveland. Did they stay in the country?

According to the biography that my grandfather wrote, his father (Adam) came over on a lark. It was a heck of a lark if he never went back and there is no indication that he ever returned to Germany, even for a visit.

I do know that he earned a living as Bike Racer until he meet Bertha. They meet at one of his race.

Thank you again
