I was interested in your posting about Adairs in Clinton, MO., but moved and forgot to post until now. I don’t have any information to offer, but our family has been searching for possible Adair connections in the Clinton area. My great grandmother was Pietta Adair who married Samuel Newton Silver, and their children were born in Clinton. Pietta’s father was killed in the Civil War and her mother died not long after Pietta’s birth. My mother, Pietta’s granddaughter, said that Pietta was raised her “Aunt Molly” who may or may be a blood relative. Molly’s last name was Bozarth and she had several daughters of her own. If you run across any information on your search that may help us find out something – anything – about Pietta, we would be thrilled.
