In the above posting Robert Adams refers to the Johnson book.This is the information on the book.Apparently Lorand V. Johnson who wrote the book was notorious for not giving sources for any information that he used.
In a book that is difficult to find, "Selected references relating to the ancestry of William and John Johnston...." by Lorand V. Johnson. there is a footnote on page 154 about the marriages of the Adams daughters and the Moorman sons that says:
"The Adams family farmed 'Arnedlie' in Monymusk from before the time of the Poll Book until they gave up the holding. In 1677 the last of the line lived at 39-41 High St., Inverurie, the sons having gone to Virginia. In 1685, John and William Adams still had seats in the '1st Piew' of the Monymusk church. James Adams, a bachelor was in 1700 school teacher in Bethelny"
I have found where some of the information came from.In the book Inverurie and the Earldom of the Garioch by the Rev. John Davidson, DD, Minister of Inverurie published in Aberdeen in 1878,I am able to find bits and pieces of the above paragraph.
If you google "Arnedlie"the book will be one of the first things to show up.At least as of this date.
Page 126 is a reference to Arnedlie
page 348 is the information about John and William and the 1st Piew at Monymusk.James Adam is listed in the next group.
Page 386 near the bottom is the information about Bethelny and"James Adam, also a bachelor, is entered as schoolmaster and precentor."above that on the same page concering Davoit is a mention of "Mr. William Adam was schoolmaster, married to Elizabeth Lunan, probably the minister's sister,and had a son and daughter, having also three servants, the number hired by the minister."
Page 392 in a series of listing who lived at what address down the street in Inverurie "the next two Roods (39-41 Hight Street)..... The present holder (this would be around 1878) is the last of a line of the name of Adams who farmed Arnedlie in Monymusk from before the time of the Poll Book until he gave up the holding himself."
I find nothing in the book that says anything about the "sons having gone to Virginia".So it may be a case of Lorand Johnson just pulling some Adams information out of a book and plugging it into his book with no basis.Or, there may be some reason that it was included in the Johnson book. To be determined.
