      William J. Adams - carman - in 1875 Brooklyn directory
      ---------------------------
      both parents born in Ireland according to his death certificate

      HE IS LISTED AS A CITIZEN IN 1892 CENSUS, BUT WIFE IS ALIEN - NATURALIZATION PAPERS!!
      may have found those
      Also, he is poss. a witness, living at 98 Hester St. Brooklyn in 1864
      ORRRR... 81 Schermerhorn St. Brooklyn as another witness in 1882
      DEFINITELY witnessed Patrick Boyle’s as he is listed at 105 Marcy Ave in 1887
      ------------------------------------------

      in 1920 NJ census his son reports his birth as NJ, but this seems unlikely
