Adolf/Adolph Selz

Classification: Query
Surnames: Selz, Schas, Rubin

I'm looking for further information on Adolf Selz, born 13 May 1888 in Germany, died 27 Jan 1956 in Asheville, North Carolina. He was married to Jeanette Schas and had one child, Evelyn, who married Benjamin Rubin.

Evelyn and Benjamin had two sons, Alan and Kenneth.

I'd like to find out if this Adolf is the nephew of my gg-uncle's grandfather, Ernest Selz.

Ernest's nephew Adolf Selz arrived in New York from Affaltrach, Germany, on 6 Oct 1902, aged 17. He was headed to Flemingsburg, KY, to his uncle Ernest Selz.

Adolf filed a patent for an improved trolley wheel on 14 Nov 1902 and it was Patented 3 Mar 1903, #722,189. He was still a German citizen at the time of filing.

I have been unable to find him after the patent filing.

Adolph in Asheville is the closest possibility I've found, but his census records suggest he might have been an US citizen by 1899.
