Notes for Adam Thuerer
The godparents and witnesses at his christening were Hr. Hauptm. Sebastian Gadient of Seis, Jgl. Georg Marug of Trimmis, Jgl. Johann Müller of Filisur, Fr. Elsbeth Hubacher born Schumacher, Fr. Anna Staub born Rugg. The Valzeina record notes that he was born in Trimmis.

Note that the 1870 census return for Baraboo Village is essentially unreadable as the census enumerator was very skimping on the use of ink. The result is something so faint as to be almost useless. They were listed between Perdil Buckley and Henry Rich at the 1880 census. Henry Rich ran a woolen mill which just might have been the one where Adam worked at that time. They were living at 525 3rd Avenue in Baraboo in 1915-16, according to the city directory (the same address as at the 1900 census). At that time he was working for the "I. Woolen Co.: Adam, his wife, and son Leonard W. are buried in Section "E" of the cemetery.
