Adam(s) Family from Aberdeenshire and Kincardineshire

I am looking for more information regarding my Scots ancestors and any living relatives in Scotland.

William Adam: born 1759 in Durris, Kincardineshire; married Jane Leighton 1783 in Strachan, Kincardineshire. They had five children.

One of five children, David Adam: born 1788 in Kincardine O'Neil; married Jane Black 1816 in Drumoak, Aberdeenshire. They lived on a farm called Quhobs and had 7 children. David died 1856 and is buried in the churchyard at Banchory Ternan.

One of seven children, William Adam: born 1830 in Drumoak, Aberdennshire; married Barbara Coutts 1830 in Drumoak. They lived on a farm called North Candyglirach and had eleven children. William died 1910 and is buried in the churchyard at Drumoak. Children's names: Ann, John, William, David Fraser, George, Alexander, Barbara Jane, James Reith, Walter Gordon, Robert Henry, and Innes Sim.

Ann, William, Barbara Jane stayed in Scotland. The rest of the children came to Canada. John and Innes returned to Scotland. John eventually moved to the US.

The William Adam named above was my great great grandfather. Please e-mail if you have any information to share.
