      In reply to: Adam Carr (b. 1831 in Forfarshire, Scotland) of Paterson, NJ
      Jim Carney 4/27/07
      Just found some notes that I believe my grandmother left at Passaic Historical Society...and have been able to add a few comments.
      Adam Carr immigrated with parents James Carr and Agnes Carr (maiden name Wilson). In the 1850 census they are listed with an Andrew Lamb (probably Adam's brother-in-law) with 3 Lamb children ages 8,5,2 (Joseph, George, ?), I suspect the mother had died in child birth or shortly after the last birth.
      Also there was a an Alexander Wilson listed in the household, probably a nephew of Agnes Carr.

    Link to Google MapsCensus - This enumeration probably erred in listing one son and two daughters - none with given names. In light of the ages shown, the logical enumeration would have been one daughter (Ada, b. 1852) and two sons (William & Horace born in 1855 and 1858). Another daughter (Ella born in December, 1859) was not listed at all. All four children were living on the date of the enumeration - June 1860. - 1860 - Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, USA Link to Google Earth
