    Obituary, Temiskaming Speaker, September 12, 1984, page 15a
    Mr. Donald Eldon Adams, of 166 Armstrong St. in New Liskeard, died Sunday, September 2nd, 1984 at Temiskaming Hospital following a brief illness. He was 72 years of age. He was born in 1911 to Robert Adams and the former Lizzie Brue of Welland and received his education on Manitoulin Island. Mr. Adams pursued a career as a mechanic in the 1940's at Westree; later, at Maguires Garage and then at Jack Mathews Garage - both in New Liskeard until his retirement in 1980. He came to this area from Westree in 1952. Mr. Adams married the former Dorothy Majeury in Little Current, Ontario, in ceremonies held December 5, 1938. She predeceased him in 1957. Mr. Adams was a member of St. Paul's United Church and the Loyal Order of the Orange. Surviving Mr. Adams are daughter Donna (Chartrand), her husband Gerry and grandchildren Mark and Michelle. Funeral services took place at Perrin Funeral Chapel, Whitewood Avenue, New Liskeard, on September 5, with the Rev. Lorne Keays officiating. Interment to follow at Burks Falls. Out of town friends and relatives attending were from Val Caron, London, Georgetown, Earlton, Haileybury and Kerns Township.

    Note-The surname Bruce was mispelled in the obit, The headstone in Burk's Falls spells the wife's surname as Majuery. Submitted by Laurie L.

    Mary Elizabeth Adams, born Edinburgh Scotland in either 1872, 1873 or
    1875 d/o Peter Bruce & Elizabeth Black remarried February 24 1914 to Charles Thomas Alliss in Grey County. Interestingly, she said she was a widow.

    Regardless, Myrtle (called May on the 1911 census) and Robert must have married prior to 1907 and after 1903.
    In 1901 Elizabeth (Lizzie) and Robert Oliver Adams were living in Sydenham Twp. Grey Co. with Robert's father and mother and son Oliver born September 26 1897. Also had children Clifford Adams, born December 9 1903 b. Grey Co.
    Infant daughter b. October 11 1896, b. Grey Co.

    In 1911 both Oliver and Clifford are living with their grandparents in Sydenham. Oliver died in Sydenham in December 27, 1928, Tuberculosis, it was signed by his grandfather Oliver Adams.

    Bottom line, I don't know why Donald said his mother was Lizzie Bruce when his birthdate surely indicates that he was Myrtle's son.
