    1877-188 Directory he already has his own co, J.V, McAdam and Co and following year listed at 162 Washington. His age both years is recorded as 51. In 1880 the firm is known as McAdam and Barnet and Peter McAdam, a contractor, is a member of the firm.

    Charles V age 6 b in Ill, Mary R 4, Anne 2 and VincentL 3.5. Peter 21, a bookkeeper b in Canada is living with them.
    Family Bible says John Vincent was born on 15 Dec 1844 on PEI ans was md to Ellen Willianson on 17 Mar 1866. Children: Charles 7 Dec 1873, Mary Rose 6 Jan 1876, Annnie Josephine 26 Jul 1878, Vincent Leo b 29 Feb 1880, Ellen Teresa 15 Oct 1881 and John Amberg b 3 Aug 1885.

    Vincent Leo Jr, grandson to John Vincent McAdam said that the business failed and the family moved to Vancouver BC and John died there in 29 Sep 1918

    McAdam letter says spouse is Ellen Williamson and her mother (probably) is in the household

    It is hard to tel who the children belong to because both spouses are from Canada

    1880 census Chicago says John from New Brunswick, but I have a christening record says he was born in PIE.

    I do not find him on 1900 gen.com, but do find him as a boarder, widower in 1910 in Seattle. Naturalized in 1865. SO HE SHOULD BE ON 1870 CHICAGO CENSUS. WITH 1ST WIFE.
