Robert John Adams


Robert John Adams was my grandfather Ernest Adams' brother. I do not believe Kate and Frederick were twins. In the 1891 census, Kate's age is given as 7 and Frederick's as 4. The '7' in the census for Kate's age could be read as a '4', but both Kate's marriage and death registrations in Ontario indicate she was born in 1884 as would the age 7 in in 1891 census. Robert was intending to settle in Canada after the Titanic voyage and his brother Ernest was traveling by train from Toronto to New York to meet him when he heard the news of the sinking. I have a letter he wrote to my grandmother from the train as he was coming to terms with the possibility he would never see his brother again.Jim Wild
