Today is my Dad, Stanley Rosenbaum's, birthday.

He would be 107 today.

The Rosenbaums came to Adair in 1846.

That year the Mexican-American War began and perhaps 15 million buffalo were still roaming the west.

Adam Rosenbaum’s family was on their way to Nebraska by wagon and, passing through Adair country, Adam contracted typhoid and had a lengthy recovery period.

By the time he was able to travel, the group had put down roots in the Glensfork Community.

Four generations later there are no remaining Rosenbaums in Adair. --Dave Rosenbaum
