- In July 1884, Adolph Dexheimer was living in New York City, New York, at 104 West Houston according to his marriage record.
- In January 1889, Adolph Dexheimer and Annie Egan were living in Manhattan, New York, at 51 Macdougal Street when their daughter Amelia was born, and Adolph gave his occupation as tailor.

- It is an educated guess that the Adolph Dexheimer, "age 32," whose death on 7 November 1916 by gas poisoning in a furnished room at 162 East 128th Street in Manhattan, was actually Adolph Dexheimer who is the subject of this research. Because he is buried near four of his children, who died in 1906 and 1914, at Kensico Cemetery in Westchester County, it seems possible that there simply was some error in recording his age on the death certificate.
- It is likely that this photograph, identified only as "Dexheimer" on the back, is one of Adolph & Kate Ball Dexheimer's girls.
- Research Note: The mother of the three Manning granddaughters enumerated with Adolph and Kate Ball Dexheimer in 1910 likely was a daughter of Annie Egan, but further research is required. Unlikely a daughter of Kate Ball Lockman because of timing and Irish connections.
