James McAdam married Agnes Greirson, 26 April 1700 in Glencarin.. 
William McAdam married Agnes McCaig, 14 Jan. 1709 in Glencarin.

Thomas MacAdam (b. Nov. 18, 1832 in Troqueer, Scotland) and his wife Catherine Black (b. 1838, Dumfries, Scotland) wedding date as March 18, 1859, who emigrated in1868-70 and settled in Philadelphia. Their son, Samuel David MacAdam, was born in Oak Lane, a suburb of N. Philadelphia, on September 16, 1871. His older siblings Agnes b. 1860, Jessie b. 1861, Thomas b. 1864, Robert b. 1865, Catherine b. 1868, were born in Scotland.

Dumfries is not generally considered McAdam country or at least we have located not land records belonging to McAdams here. There are several marrage records in the city of Dumphries but none seemed to have lived there. The first records in Dumphries is when Quintin McAdam was absent from Court in 1616. It is not until 1680 we find a Thomas McAdam marring Margaret McGiltrath followed by a Thomas and James in the early 1700's. It appears this family remained here up through the 1860's, possiblily longer.

The records show the families in Glencairn were probably related to those in Dunscore, Sanquhar, and Holywood. They were allied to the families of the Jackson, Fergusson, Hendersons and others. The only clue to their origin is David McAdam who married Margaret Rankin in Sanquhar. David was the son of Alexander and Jane Dick McAdam, grandson of David McAdam of Grimmit and his wife P. Stair and member of the Craigengillan McAdam family.

Samuel McAdam of Closeburn

The 1841 census has Samuel's household. William and John there were his little brothers and Cathrine was Cathrine Jane, his daughter. It says that only Cathrine was born in Closeburn, the rest elsewhere.

In 1851 Samuel is listed with his family, but no Cathrine who should have been 11. He says he was born in Dunscore and that he is "Farmer's Son".

The Farmer is Samuel McAdam, Sr. living in Holywood, widowed age 59. William who was in Samuel's household in 1841 is now living with his father, Samuel, Sr. He should have been 20, but 21 are close enough as it would depend when his birthday was. John, age 5 should have been 15, but is missing and could have died.

Samuel Sr. was married to Catherine Gibson, probably where the name Catherine comes from and the Jane is from her mother, Jane Kirkpatrick. Catherine appears back in the household with Samuel in 1871 as Jane, age 26 which makes her being born in 1841 which makes one wonder what happed to her in 185l, unless she was just omitted for some reason.

It looks that Alexander and Robert McAdam, both born in Dunscore was probably Samuel, Sr. brothers due to their ages and place of birth. Samuel was probably the oldest and heir to the family property. He seemed to be doing well as 245 Acres and employing 7 people tells us he was more than an average citizen. He either owned or had a lease on the Caerlaverock property. A check of land deeds during these dates might tell us if he inherited some family property, purchased, or leased it.

Both Samuel Sr. and Samuel Jr. were born in Dunscore and following McAdam in that location is probably all family members and that could be tied to the Caerlaverock property.

Back to Samuel Sr. and Catherine Gibson, a son, James was born 1823 and William was born 1829 and is the William in the households mentioned above. It is interesting to note that both Samuel's were born in Dunscore but they were away after about 1830 and Samuel returned about 1840 and probably took up farming on the family farm. Seems the older Samuel returned by 1851, probably not to farm but to be around and run the family business. In 1871 the farm was 210 acres down from 245 with only 5 employees. Probably some was sold off to pay off the younger members of the family.

Samuel was in Dunscore 1840 to 1874 when he sold off his farm stock and moved. The key to finding more information on this family is the lands of Caerlaverock. In the older records it was common for McAdames to own farms or lands and not live on the lands. They would sometimes be with other McAdames, in towns, or working on another leased farm in another location.

The first date is 1743 when Samuel son of John McAdam was born in Holywood. Looks as Robert McAdam was in Dunscore by 1779 and was one of the earlier families.

Perth

James McAdam, abt. 1650 appears first in the records of Alerfolyle, County, 
Perth when his son John was born in 1680. 
- Donald McAdam and his wife, Jonet Grame (Graham) children were christened: 
- Elizabeth, 28 April 1692, Margaret, 1699.
- Margaret McAdam married Lachlein McLachleim, 8 Dec. 1702
- George McAdam married Ann Grame, 29 Nov. 1707
- George McAdam married Marie Nuier, 25 March 1708
- Christian McAdam married John Wright, 24 Nov. 1709.
After 1709 the family disappears from the Alerfoyle area which makes this 
family group a good prospect to have immigrated elsewhere.

At the Port of Monlerth in Perth:
Janet McAdam married Donald Blair 28, April 1719.
Duncan McAdam and his wife, Agnes King daughter, Janet, born 15 March 1729.
After this date no McAdam is found in Perth until the 1800's.

I was looking through your website for McAdam info and thought you might be interested in a small piece of McAdam family history I found in an old family tree from Wigtownshire, Scotland. No dates are mentioned and any possible corrections have not been fully checked.

Alexander McAdam of Boreland m. Margaret Dunn of Sorbie
Anton McAdam was murdered in Wigtown
John McAdam m. Margaret Wilson, niece of Margaret Wilson of Glenvernoch, one of the Wigtown martyrs drowned in 1685
Son of John & Margaret - William McAdam of Greenfield m. Margaret McCredy
Son of William & Margaret McCredy- William McAdam of Corwar (Sorbie parish) m. Elizabeth McClelland of Wigtown in 1825.
No children of William McAdam and Elizabeth McCelland are mentioned. Elizabeth (b.1726) was the daughter of Thomas McClelland of Auld Orchardton, Kirkinner parish and Margaret Broadfoot of Glasserton parish, Wigtownshire.

If any of McAdam Society members are an offshoot of William McAdam & Elizabeth 
McClelland, I have quite a lot of info on the McClelland family and Elizabeths ancestors.

Listed below are additions to your list of births & marriages under the parish of Penninghame, Wigtownshire. 
I suspect that the George McAdam below is the same person under Penninghame who married Agnes Rae. 
Andrew McAdam was born in 1780. He died on 16 June 1838 at the Park Farm, about a mile from Causeway 
End. He married Margaret Aird, born  1773, in Stonykirk, Wigtownshire, on 24 May 1800. She died on 4 June 
1861, at the Clachan of Penninghame. They had six children: 
1. Robert, born 1 May 1810  at Inch, Wigtownshire. He worked at the Clachan Farm, eventually taking over its tenancy until his 
death. In the 1851 census and again in that of 1891, his occupation is given as "farmer".  He died 27 July 1895 at the Clachan of 
Penninghame and is buried in the churchyard along with his parents and three brothers. He married Margaret Paterson.  
They had a daughter Jane (or Jean) McAdam born 1851.  Jane (Jeanie) McAdam married Anthony McClelland on 12 January 1881. 
2. Archibald 1813-1827 
3. William 1804, died 7 November 1842 at the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, in 
                           military service. He was a sergeant of the 91st Regiment.
