Another Adam Hiemenz

Remember THIS post about Adam Hiemenz (1839-1924), the altar builder at Holy Angels in St Cloud?  He and his wife Rose Bolfing had four kids, one of whom was Joseph Hiemenz, who married Gramma Lizzy's sister Angie's another son named Adam Frank Hiemenz (aka Eddie) and his wedding to Mary Ann Meyer.  I'm mortified to admit that I don't recall who sent it to me, but it needs a place here, even tho they made their home in St Cloud. They had eleven children and....wait, read Adam's obit, below.  My families' double connection to the Hiemenz family is mentioned there.
