Conrad's Stories

The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

Conrad Adam

1854 was a new beginning for Conrad Adam. This is the year he made a life-changing decision to move from Tiefenbach, Prussia, to Boerne, Texas. Boerne is nestled in the Texas Hill Country hills, much like his home village of Tiefenbach. He was 26 years old and traveled with his younger brother Carl. They arrived in Galveston on 20 November 1854.

A 157 years later, as I sit in my air-conditioned home with all the gadgets that make my life more comfortable, I can’t imagine getting on a small wooden ship and heading to a relatively unknown place. What an adventure it must have been!
