Iowa County, IA Biographies





Adolph Smith, who was a resident of Lincoln township and had many friends in his locality, was born on the 16th of March, 1878, a son of Adolph and Anna Smith, both natives of Germany, who became residents of Lincoln township many years ago and are still living there. In their family were eleven children. Our subject grew to manhood in this state and made agriculture his life work, becoming very successful in that occupation, as he possessed the qualities of industry, energy and sound judgment, traits which go far toward winning success in any calling.

On New Year's Day, 1902, Mr. Smith married Miss Lizzie Pirkl, who was born in Johnson county, this state, a daughter of J. A. and Mary (Kroul) Pirkl, both of Bohemian descent. They removed to Iowa county from Johnson county and are still residing upon a farm here. Three of their four children survive. To Mr. and Mrs. Smith were born three children, Edward, and two who have passed away. Mr. Smith was a democrat in his political allegiance and measured up to the standard of a good citizen. His death occurred April 1, 1907.

Mrs. Smith owns and operates a hotel at Ladora which was the first hostelry in the town and is a credit to its owner and manager. It occupies a half block and is well furnished and equipped, much thought having been taken to secure the comfort of its guests. Mrs. Smith holds membership in the German Reformed church and her influence is always on the side of moral advancement and progress.
