  Research Notes:


There is a record of the death of a woman called Sarah Adams MS McMillan, aged 54 years, in the Scottish records. She died in 1871 in the Royal Edinburgh Asylum. There are many difficulties with establishing any connection with this woman, not the least being the fact that from 1851 Thomas Adams is recorded as being a widower.

Sarah married Thomas ADAMS (DNA Linked), son of David ADAMS and Margaret PILLO. (Thomas ADAMS (DNA Linked) was born about 1795 in Ireland 10 and died 7 April 1878 at 2.00 am in Clay Coats, Parish of Corstorphine, Midlothian, Scotland 9 10 11.). The cause of his death was heart disease of uncertain duration.4
