The following is a description about the men of the McAdoo family: "---------- mingled with stout-hearted tales of Indians and camp-fires. These early McAdoos were bearded, vigorous men of Scotch descent, pioneers by instinct, rough and hearty, living close to the soil, and making their own way without seeking help or guidance.They were all Bible-reading Presbyterians who believed in Judgement Day and the efficiancy of shotguns."
