What happened to Eugene?
« on: Saturday 01 January 22 11:26 GMT (UK) »
I am wondering what happened to a distant cousin of mine Eugene G Adams, who is listed in NSW BDM as: 
ADAMS, EUGENE G
reg/year
11098/1885
parents:
WILLIAM J
MARY
place of reg: WATERLOO

I suspect the G may have stood for George as he had a paternal uncle of that name in England from where his father emigrated as a youngster.

his parents were William Jospeh Walter Adams (1854-1948) b. London, d. Petersham NSW
and Mary E Donaldson (1861-1906) b Goulburn NSW, d Hurstville NSW

I cannot find him in any death records, or marriage records, electoral roll records and grave searches have been patchy.

? Wondering if he died as a child and death was never registered?

His parents had four children that I can find
:

Mary Theresa Adams
1881–1954

Eugene G Adams
1885–

Beatrice Ellen Rose Adams
1887–1965

William HJ Adams ( Who I can also find no definite information for except a birth entry, as the name is so generic )
1889–

yes, you have the correct father's death listed here.
thankyou for the newspaper references.
It appears from the children listed that Eugene is not mentioned. Either he died at birth or they are the wrong Mary and William Adams as parents.

Seems strange that they registered his birth as required by law, and probably as Catholics had him baptised, but no sign of a death registration (that I can find)
Have you looked for Catholic parish registers for that part of Sydney?

Hi

One daughter named in William's death notice was Mrs DALY, who was actually Eugenie G.

If you are unable to visit the NSW archives, you could put a request for Rootschatter Rosball to kindly copy this file next time she is at the archives. https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=703011.0

Probate Packet often contains valuable information, death certificate, details of marriage, children etc.
