John Adair, b. 1785 Baltimore Co. Maryland (or Newcastle, Delaware ?)
would anyone have found a birth entry for him which may show his mother's maiden name, Rosanna .....?
Would like to know if Benjamin Adair married Rosanna ..... possibly in Ireland c.1772 before emigrating.
Did they emigrate with any Houston / Hustons ? Thankyou.

Less than four years later only his eldest sons, Philip and George, remained in the Paint Valley, and even they had at least one son apiece who had gone west of planned to do so. Of Benjamin's sons and daughters who emigrated, five moved to north central Indiana and settled near Logansport in Cass County.”
