Your information about James Jamieson Adair is very interesting. In Greene Co., Ga., James'father Benjamin Adair, planter of Laurens Co.,SC sold 322 acres on Oconee River to Henry Allison, Esq. on 31 March 1790.I believe that Putnam was formed out of Greene Co., Ga. at a later date.Possibly James lived in the same area where his father sold land on Oconee River.
Do you have any additional information for Benjamin's wife Catherine?My file shows that Benjamin Adair was born c1752 and died -3 Sep 1823, in Laurens Co., S.C.Is that what your records show?
My file also indicates some of Benjamin's children migrated to Perry Co., Ala.by 1823.
