James McKittrick Adair's wife was Charlotte Hamilton b. 25 March 1764 died 1806. Whe was the elder dau. of John Hamilton of Kype, a Mauchline lawyer, by his 2nd wife.On the death of her father, she and the second family moved to Harvieston, near Dollar, the home of the writer John TAIT, husband of her maternal aunt. (John TAIT may have had son, Crawford Tait b. 1765, perhaps his mother's surname was CRAWFORD ?)
Dr. James Adair m. Charlotte in 1789 and they had 5 children.Charlotte returned to Edinburg after her husband's death and died there.
Was this James McKittrick Adair relative of Rev. Wm. Adair of Ayr (brother of Sir Robert Adair I) who raised insurrection on Mauchline Moor ?
There was a Mr. TAIT in Rockbridge VA whose son was baptised by Rev. White.
Would appreciate any information on the family of Mrs. James McKittrick Adair who were in VA.
