Hi
I am related to Stella and Mabel McAdam who had family in Fintona, Co. Tyrone through my great grandmother, Margaret McAdam. A John McAdam posted about this family back in 2008 at Ancestry.com and I have recently found that post and replied, but so far have not heard from him (I can't email him directly).
Here is the info I have about the family.

Margaret (Maggie) McAdam
Born:May , 1856 at "Rose Vale" Doocarrick, Cootehill, County Cavan, Irish Republic. Stephen McAdam (in 1883) still lives in the house where Margaret was raised.
Died:July 27, 1935 at Mille Roche, Ontario
Buried:At Moulinette but her headstone was moved to the St. Lawrence Valley Union Cemetery near Ingleside, Ontario
Married:Thomas Simons youngest son of David Simons (I) on Dec. 24, 1878 at the Parish of Ashfield Church, Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland (a copy of the marriage certificate is available both from the Church and from the Registrar General, The Custom House, Dublin, Ireland).
Born:Aug. 2, 1857, presumably at Cortober, County Cavan, Ireland.
Died:Dec. 3, 1936 at Mille Roche, Ontario of pneumonia
Buried:Dec. 5, 1936 at Moulinette, Ontario. Grave remains at Moulinette under water but his headstone was moved to the St. Lawrence Valley Union Cemetery near Ingleside, Ontario
Lived: At Cortober, near Cootehill, Co. Cavan, Ireland after her marriage. In April, 1883, came to Megantic County, Quebec with her husband Thomas. her mother-in-law Anne Simons, and her two oldest children, Elizabeth Anne Simons and Henry (Harry) John Simons.
Stella McAdam stated that the McAdam family in Ireland went to a Presbyterian church.

Father: Joseph McAdam Jr...member of the Royal Irish Constabulary. He retired from the Royal Irish Constabulary on health grounds in 1902, and went to live in Fintona, Co. Tyrone and died in 1914 at the age of 54.
Born: August or September, 1860 in Co. Cavan, Ireland. Note: on his marriage certificate, his age is given as 22, which would give a birth year of 1866.
Lived: His address on his marriage certificate is Ballymona, Co. Antrim, but he was working as a police officer in Co. Antrim at the time of his marriage.
Died: 1914 at Fintona, Co. Tyrone, Ireland
Father: Joseph McAdam Sr
Mother: Unknown...could this be the Margaret Sleator that Stella McAdam mentioned (see below)?
Mother:Mary Lizzie Giboney at 2nd Ballynahatty Presbyterian Church, Parish of Drumragh near Omagh, Co. Tyrone, Ireland on December 18th, 1888.
At the time of her marriage she is listed as living at Attaghamore. Her father is listed as James Giboney, a farmer.
Born: 1868 (her age is given as 20 on her marriage certificate)
Note: Margaret Sleator is the name of Joseph McAdam's wife that was given to me by my Aunt who had it from Stella McAdam, but records in Ireland suggest it was Mary Giboney.

He later transferred to the newly created Garda Siochana (Irish Free State Police) and retired as a Sergeant in Blackrock Co Dublin in 1955. He later had a farm and a business in the town of Fintona, Co. Tyrone. The 1901 census in Clogher, Co.

In the census of 1911 in Ireland, the residents of house 3 in Doocarrick townland, Ashfield, Co. Cavan were:
John McAdam, 52, head of family
Esther Jane McAdam, 31, wife
Lizzie McAdam, 15, daughter (this is Elizabeth McAdam below)
Joseph McAdam, 13, son
Maggie McAdam, 10, daughter
William McAdam, 8, son
Ellie McAdam, 6, daughter
Spurgeon McAdam, 3, son
Whitefield McAdam, 1, son

Ms. Essie Madill, Drum Gaze Cross, Drum Post Office, County Monaghan, Irish Republic, may also be related through Liza Madill who may have married Joseph McAdam, though I am not sure which Joseph McAdam. There is a June 19, 1883 marriage record in Ashfield Parish, Co. Cavan for an Elizabeth Madill, but she married a Robert McConkey, not Joseph McAdam. There is a church baptism record for Elizabeth Madill in 1811 in Co. Cavan.
