|Carmen Benner Chilson||RE: Laura B Smith (Multnomah Pioneer Park Cemetery|
Thank you John. This Laura B Smith Adam has been a nightmare to figure out! I literally have spent DAYS on her and her husband John Adam.
John's birth name was John Harry Bornheimer, in 1910 he married Laura B. Smith. That made them John and Laura Bornheimer, however when they moved to Portland OR from Manhattan NY, they decided for some unknown reason to change their names to John and Laura B Adam, they had a print shop, first called Smith and Adam Print, then changed to Adam's Printing... somehow a Dorothy Adam is in the mix, or else Laura changed her first name at times. I can't find any marriage or any census for a Dorothy Adam, but can find a death record. It is really unusual. Every census has Laura with John, but several years the city directories have Dorothy with John. John had a brother that changed his name from Bornheimer to Bonner, but I was able to find the legal paperwork on that one. I came up empty on John and Laura. Thank you for letting me know!
