Anyone know the Macadams family?
I am researching the crew of a 10 Squadron RAF Halifax MK 111 Heavy Bomber JD322 lost on a bombing raid over Germany on the night of Aug. 30, 1943. The aircraft was shot down by a German night fighter and in the resulting crash all seven crew members lost their lives.
The aircraft belonged to 10 Squadron RAF operating out of RAF Melbourne in Yorkshire, England with two of the crew being members of the RCAF.
This summer surveys have been completed at the crash site in Waldsee, Germany confirming that this was the final resting place of JD322. When excavations have taken place a memorial will be placed at the crash site in remembrance of the crew and my remit has been to locate families of the Canadian crew members. I am trying to trace the family connections of the Bomb Aimer FG. Off. Coran Lyman McPherson RCAF.
My research has shown me that he had family connections in the Duncan/Maple Bay area and I am hoping to trace the family of Mrs. Frances Macadams who lived in the area. Sadly the records show that Mrs Macadams passed away on Jan. 31, 2002 but it is believed that she had three sons. She is interred in St. Peter’s Anglican Cemetery Quamichan, Duncan with her husband Douglas Macadams who passed away in June 1985.
It would be very much appreciated if anyone has any information on the Macadams family to please contact me on email@example.com. This would help us in the commemoration of the life of FG Off McPherson.
