My Great Grand Uncle "Private Adam Stevenson 1400A - By Thomas Stevenson on 3rd May 2015

STEVENSON, No1400 Private Adam 15th Battalion 4th Brigade 1st Division Adam was born on 12th March 1888 at Polmont, Stirling; Scotland and was educated at Polmont Public School, son of John and Isabella Stevenson (nee McNee), and enlisted at Childers on 16th December 1914 aged 26 years and 9 months. Adam had left the U.K. on 26th January 1909 for Australia. His address was Childers with his Next of Kin Mrs E. Rowe of 43 York Street, Springhill; Brisbane. On enlistment he stated his occupation as Farm Servant. He left Australia for service overseas. Adam was killed in action aged 27 years whilst serving with the 15th Battalion, 2nd Rifles on the 14th/15th May 1915 and is buried at Quinn’s Post, Gallipoli.

Adam’s name appears on the Rolls of Honor at the Childers R.S.L. and the Childers Memorial Hall. There is no photo of Adam Stevenson in the Soldiers Memorial, Childers. Adam had written a will requesting that all his personal belongings go to Mrs E. Rowe, 43 York Street; Springhill. Unfortunately, she seems to have moved from there when the Infantry tried to contact her. The Brisbane Courier on the 13th July 1915 named a “military Inquiry” asking for Mrs E. Rowe to contact the Officer in Charge (OIC) at Victoria Barracks, Melbourne.
