The California table. Descendants of Capt. Joshua Adams and the one on the left is also from California –but is a descent of the Yaver –Levy family;) He had no idea I was taking this..hence the dazed look.

At Glen Tay, Capt. Joshua Adams, a veteran who had served through the recent American war, had the first saw and grist mill in the vicinity of Perth and also erected a tavern in the village which may possibly have been the building shown on the Foster Street side of what was then or afterwards the aforementioned Bell property, for the Captain’s name appears thereon. Adamsville (later called Glen Tay)

Built in 1856, this stone structure served as a schoolhouse in North Burgess Township until 1968.  The building, now owned by the adjacent cemetery, still contains original wooden desks, a Union Jack flag, old textbooks and some school registers dating back to 1924.
