Adolph Joseph Dewald

#4, Adolph Joseph Dewald, is the son of Mathias "Martin" Dewald and Amelia Gregor.

Born 29 Dec 1873 in Waterville, Waseca Co., MY and died 2 Oct 1960 in Santa Ana, Orange Co., CA.

At the age of 7, in 1880 his family moved to a home a short distance NW of Hebron, Thayer Co., NY. As a young man, he was a professional photographer with his own studio at Friend, Saline Co., NE.

His wedding photo shows him as a trim, handsome man of medium height with dark hair and a neatly trimmed moustache. Adolph's family multiplied rapidly: 5 children at Friend in the first 10 years and 5 more in the next 12 years at O'Neill and Hebron, NE. The financial demands of a family that size necessitated a larger and more stable income than could be obtained from photography. He relinquished his studio in the 1920's and became a representative for a local oil company, although the building housing his studio still bore his name 60 years later.

In the early 1940s, his family grown, he and his wife moved to Santa Ana, Orange Co., CA where they bought a home on Palm Ave. on the east side of town. After the death of his wife, he remarried. He died of natural causes at his home in 1960 at the age of 86. He rests at Melrose Abbey in Anaheim alongside his wife and other kin.

He married Florence Rosana Prentice.
