Adolf Hagelweide was a miller, first in Steinort and later in nearby Labab. With his wife Dorothea, neé Albat, he had at least seven children. Dorothea must have been much younger than him, because Adolf Hagelweide was already 57 years old, when his youngest child was born.
His son Hermann Hagelweide also became a miller. After his father’s death in 1884, Hermann was a master miller in Labab.
Probably Adolf Hagelweide did not originally come from the region, because all the Hagelweides there were his children or grandchildren – with one exception called Auguste Wallner, who was born on September 21, 1819 as Auguste Hagelweide and was also buried in the cemetery of Groß-Steinort. It is quite possible that she was Adolf Hagelweide’s younger sister.
