WILLIAM LINKSTONE AND CHRISTINA (nee McMurray) ADAMS, BOTH BORN IN SCOTLAND, WERE BURIED AT DROMANA, VIC., AUST. IN 1967 AND 1974.
Because my chronology of burials at Dromana wouldn't save under the original title, I've renamed the word document PIONEER GRAVES AT DROMANA. I'm now going through the ozgen list and have discovered some ADAMS burials not connected with Adams Corner; they are listed as "ADAMS (Other)" in the surnames index. I don't intend to write a biography for every burial on the ozgen list but if they have the same surname as any of our pioneers, I will look for their death records to see if there is a relationship to our pioneers. This couple probably married before leaving Scotland.
