Another name for Adam was Adam Schmitt V.
Adam Schmitt was also known as Adam Schmitt V, due to the fact that there were so many Adam Schmitt's in the village. The designation "V" had nothing to do with his father's name or if he was the fifth of that name. It was merely a way for the community to designate which Adam Schmitt was being referenced.
Adam married Katharina Flößer on 4 Aug 1874. (Katharina Flößer was born about 1850 in Unter-Flockenbach, Bergstraße, Hessen, Germany.)
