His children and grandchildren also worked in the mills. Adolph built a house at 48 Woodland Street on Prospect Hill for $900 where he raised a family of 5 children: Helen(1875), Alfred (1878), Harry (1885), Elsie (1887), and Edward (1895). Edward married Frieda (Eichner) and they moved into the family home where they raised three daughters. Edward died in 1965. His middle daughter, Elinor, bought the house and lived there after her marriage. The house was sold outside of the family in the 1980s.
