Thank you for the response. I'm not sure if these are the same person. The only information I have on Adlof is that he was born in Germany on April 26, 1841 and died in Pittsburgh, PA on June 29, 1888. He married Anna Catherine King on May 28, 1865 also in Pittsburgh. He supposedly had a younger brother Herman who ran away to Africa and discovered the Wesselton Diamond. Herman had a fortune in the Bank of England and lost it during WWII.

I know this isn't much, maybe it will give you a clue if they are indeed the same person.
