Albert W Adix is successfully established as carpenter and contractor in Boone, also owning valuable real estate and deriving a gratifying income form his activities as a builder. He was born September 29, 1877, on the home farm in Yell township, Boone county, and is a son of Lewis W And Frederika (Krogman) Adix, native of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, the former born March 4, 1833, and the latter November 13, 1841. Extended mention of them is made in another part of this work.
Albert W Adix attended the public schools of his neighborhood, including the Hickory Grove school, laying aside his text books at the age of eighteen. Before that time he had already busied himself on the homestead, but now devoted his entire attention to agricultural work, assisting his father with the operation of the farm. He subsequently bought this property and continued to work it until September 1912, when he removed to Boone, becoming manager of the Adix Hotel and continuing in that capacity for about two years. He then rented the hotel and gave his attention to the carpentering and contracting business, having been very successful along that line since. In partnership with his brother Frank D he owns eighteen lots in the city and both are now engaged in a number of important transactions which will contribute to the growth and development of their city.
On July 10, 1907, in Chicago, Illinois, Mr Adix married Miss Katy Kumpf, who was born in Boone, March 31, 1886, and attended the schools here form six until thirteen years of age. She is a daughter of George and Jennie (Henie) Kumpf, both living, the former a farmer of Minnesota. Mrs Adix is a German Lutheran, having been confirmed in that church, and attends the local services of that organization. In their family there are three children: Harold Albert, born August 31, 1908, Rosetta Katy, born February 22, 1910, and Laverne, born May 3, 1912. Mr Adix is a democrat and is thoroughly conversant with the issues and questions of the day. He is ever interested in anything that pertains to the general advancement and is a useful citizen, who in a large measure enjoys the respect and esteem of all those who know him.
