by their descendants.
From Netherby discussion forum July 2013:
I am a descendant of John and Eliza Adams. Their daughter Fanny Adams was my grandmothers(Dorothy Payne) grandmother, and their daughter Emma was my grandfathers(Noel Boardman) grandmother. Noel and Dorothy are my fathers parents. They were actually third cousins.
I have recently just taken an interest in genealogy and have found that my grandmother did a lot of work regarding my ancestors.
The story of: John (aged 29, a smith) and Eliza (27) Adams, and their children Mary Ann (5), John B (1). Ticket 10, steerage.

I am a descendant of John and Eliza Adams currently working on family history. So sorry I didn't know about the 150th anniversary gathering. Would definitely have tried to attend. My mother was Dulcie Hallam nee Adams whose father was Joseph John Thomas Adams. His father was Joseph Thomas Adams son of John and Eliza Adams.
Kind Regards, Susan Johannessen.
