To follow-up on the preceeding query, I note the family of John Adair and his wife Phebe in both the 1860 and 1870 Federal censuses for Perth Amboy, New Jersey. In the first of these, 1860, Adair is said to be 30 years of age, born in New Jersey, a wheelwright. His wife Phebe A. Adair is said to be 25 and also born in New Jersey. Three children are in the household: Isaac A. aged 5 years; Millard T. (perhaps F.) Adair, aged 3 years, and Agnes E. Adair, aged 1 year.
In the following Federal census, that of 1870, the family remains in Middlesex County and John Adair is said to be 44 years of age and still a wheelwright by trade; his wife, named spelled Phoebe in this enumeration, is said to be 34. The son Isaac Adair is now fifteen and employed as a printer. A son Millard is still at home though the enumeration gives his age as 2 (which seems an error as the next entry is for our subject), Isabella Adair, who is stated to now be 12 years of age.* In each census, all of these Adairs are stated to have been born in New Jersey.

William Augustus Duryee and Isabella Agnes Adair had one child, Elsie Patricia Adair Duryee, said to have been a professional actress known as Patricia Adair.
This family group, is listed under the spelling Duryea in the 1910 census for Princeton, New Jersey. The head of household, William A. Duryea is stated to be 60 years old. He and his wife, Isabella A., now 49, are stated to have been married for 31 years. At home is their daughter Elsie A. Duryea, a single woman aged 27.**
