'Kaurna' apical ancestral pers comm claim that his great grandmother Bessie Reeves was from Clarendon in addition to, "And the Clock Struck Thirteen: The Life and Thoughts of Kaurna Elder Uncle Lewis Yerloburka O'Brien", p54,

"Tim Adams was my great grandfather, the younger son of Kudarto and Tom. Tim was very unfortunate in marriage because he lost three of his four wives to illness. He only ever had children from his second marriage to Bessie Reeves. Little is known of his first wife, but it is believed she was Fanny from Franklin Harbour, near Port Lincoln. His second wife, Bessie Reeves, was said to be from Kingston, but according to my Auntie Glad she was a sister of Ivaritji which means she was Kaurna. Together Tim and Bessie had four children - Lewis, Gertrude, Julia and Arthur (nicknamed 'Bishop'). Unfortunately Bessie died in 1878 during the measles epidemic that hit so many Aboriginal people, leaving Tim with a family of four young children to raise by himself. Two years later in 1880 he married Bessie's sister Esther Reeves, who became a much needed mother to his young children. In Aboriginal society children consider their mother's sisters to be their mother anyway. Much later, in 1907, after Tim had left Poonindie and his third wife, Esther, had passed away in 1901, Tim married Lizzie Sansbury at Point Pearce. Time died the following year at the age of fifty-six.15" See Brock & Kartinyeri (1989), p. 62
