The 1892 Upper Silesia business directory lists a Moritz Apt as the owner of "Moritz Apt", Schnitt- und Tuchwaarenhdlg in Langendorf (page 98), and a Moritz Apt as owner the of "Adolf Apt", Schnitt- und Modewhdl in Lublinitz (page 109).

The 1914 Upper Silesia business directory (page 208) shows that the Langendorf business is now in the hands of Albert Apt (Moritz's son) and son-in-law Emil Gadiel.

The Lublinitz business probably belonged to Moritz's namesake cousin and his father Adolph.

RG, a granddaughter of Emil Gadiel says he died in 1921. A Moritz Apt, who died on 20/12/1921 is buried in the Jewish cemetery in Ratibor (plot 5).
