Hi there... My wife and I have been bitten by the genealogy bug, and so far I have managed to go back to about the middle 1800's, but the information is scarce.
The earliest I know is a Dr. Adam (no known first name), originally from Ireland, who practiced for some time in London. There may have been a brother or two, also doctors, in London as well. His first wife died, and he remarried. There is speculation that a son, Gordon Adam, born from the first marriage. Two sons, Wesley Adam and Loch Adam, were born of the second marriage. Both were born in Australia (after the doctor and his wife emigrated there). Wesley was born in Hay, NSW, in 1890. The mother died during birth to Loch. When the doctor married a third time, his new wife did not want the boys, so they were placed into an orphanage. What happened to Gordon and Loch Adam is so far not known (by us). Sometime along the way, the family ended up in Perth, W. Aust. Wesley, at the age of 16 (1906) joined the Imperial Australian Force (by lying about his age) and later participated in the assault on Gallipoli with the ANZACs (1915). He caught shrapnel in both legs, leaving him unable to walk for the rest of his life. He died in 1983, at the age of 93. He and his wife brought forth Edna May Adam, my grandmother, who married Thomas Mervyn Barnett.
It's Gordon Adam, Loch Adam, and the doctor (who died when he fell off a horse and broke his neck) that I'm trying to research right now. If any of these names or events ring bells.... please email!Thanks!!
