Pless family record

His death was reported by Rudolph, then living in Berlin. The death certificate says that he was born in Mokrau, kreiss Pless and died at home in Hindenburg. His address is given as Parisiusstraße 7, which was also his address in the 1908-09 and 1912 Zabrze address books.

A photo of his gravestone gives his date of birth; it is not completely legible, but appears to be "xx.9.1840". This ties up with an entry in the Pless family records for the birth of Aron on 16/09/1840 to Joachim. Another researcher's published tree on confirms that Adolf's father was Joachim.
