My name is Leigh McAdam and I live in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.I came across your post on the Genealogy.com forum.
My great grandfather, David McAdam came to Australia from Ireland and eventually settled in Penola, South Australia.
David McAdam was born on 6 May 1834 in Cloncore, Tartaraghan, Ireland and married Ann Jane Castles on 13 October 1854.They arrived in Australia on 1 July 1855.
I was in Ireland last year and visited the Parish Church at Tartaraghan.I have a photo of the gravestone which you referred to in your post on the Genealogy forum.
The Henry McAdam and Mary Ann McAdam on the gravestone were David’s parents so are my great-great grandparents.
As far as I can work out David was the brother of the Robert McAdam you mentioned in your posting.
I'd be keen to get in touch further.My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
