ADAM HUFBAUER was born March 12, 1848 in Tazewell County, Ill, to Peter and Margaret Hufbauer, both natives of Holland. See more information here (http://www.ksgenweb.org/sedgwick) and here (Portrait and Biographical Album of Sedgwick County, Kansas) as well as here Findagrave.com
My research will make reference to John Hufbauer, John Haufbauer, and Jno Hufbauer, and Adam Hufbauer – all the same individual, I am thinking. “Adam” and Kate Kline Hufbauer had five children: Laura May, born in Illinois but died in infancy; John Frank, whose name could be part of the confusion; Grace Edna, Jessie Ray and Mary Hazel. Any information regarding these people would be greatly appreciated. I do know John Frank, married a local girl, Emma Canady from Mulvane and wound up in NewKirk, OK, invested in the local area there (Hufbauer & Son, Lumber, Coal and Building Material, Newkirk), had a son who became a lawyer in Newkirk. https://digital.libraries.ou.edu/sooner/articles/p232,234-241_1929v1n7_OCR.pdf
