I'm not sure but there is a possibility that your Adolph could be related to our Boltz Line. I think that they possibly could have been cousins. I recently lost everything and am rebuilding my files. My Great Great Great Grandmother was Wilhelminia Boltz, bn March 27, 1885 in Berlin/Hamburg, Germany. Daughter of Marx/Max Boltz, bn Feb 1829 in Leboe, Germany and Katherine Nestuhr(Stuhr) bn Aug 27, 1828. They lived in Davenport, Scott Co., IA. Wilhelminia married Henry Bock in 1874 in Davenport. Some of Wilhelminia's siblings are:

There children were:

Gustie Boltz
Bertha Boltz
Alvina Boltz
Wilhelminia A. Boltz
Emma Boltz
