  • Notes 
    • My Great-Grandfather (John S. Adams) of which my father was named was born in Ayrshire, Scotland around 1830 and he and his wife Jane(1) moved to Canada Guelph, ON near Kitchener.

      My Grandfather (George Alexander Adams) was born April 27, 1865. I went into the census for Ontario Canada 1881 (under London) and found a John S. Adams with wife Jane and 3 children; William Adams, Mary Adams and George Adams; who was 15, the right age for my grandfather in 1881.

      My father (John J. Adams) told me a story about he and his sister (Jane 2) were named after there grandparents. That’ is why I think the John S. Adams I found in the census is my relation.

      The biggest trouble I found was that my dad’s generation was born in Lacrosse Wisconsin. It made it even more difficult as the Canadian birth records previous to 1869 are in the Dept of commerce in Ottawa, Ontario.
