Adam Whitson Deem was my maternal grandfather.
Marriage records to Kathryn Butler show his father as Thomas Deem.
The story relating James Deem to Whitson was given to me by a relative who knew him.Adam Whitson lived at the James Deem home.
Other research indicates that the Thomas and Margaret Osborn Deem household may have been a violent one.That could account for why A.W. Deem is linked strongly to the James Deem family.
I would be happy to correspond with you further.
