How exciting to read your post!My GGG grandfather was John Adlam. When I read in your post, that he was married to Mary Jane ______, I knew there was a connection. He married Mary Jane "Matthews" in Ontario around 1840.He had a son, John Jr. (born 1847) who married Fadelia Gainforth (born Oct. 15, 1851) on May 7th 1872.THEY had a son William Matthew Adlam (4-27-1872) He was my great-grandfather. His son, Milton Henry Adlam, was my grandfather, who lived next door to me until his death in 1970.He married Marie Kruse 9-2-26.They had three sons, Theron, Robert Henry (my father!) and Clifford. I would love to learn more if you have any info.Please feel free to email me. It is wonderful to make a connection!
