Re: James Adair m. Rebecca Montgomery, whom one source had as dau of James David Montgomery, b. 1716, N. Ireland (or) Scotland, d.1808, Jefferson, Jackson Co., GA m. Margaret McClelland, b. 1724, Scotland d. 8 Oct 1804 or m. Elizabeth McConnell.
However, this appears to be incorrect - refer to will of James Montgomery, f-in-law of James Adair :
S.C. Archives, Date: 1791-1792 Description: MONTGOMERY, JAMES OF NINETY SIX DISTRICT, LAURENS COUNTY WILL TYPESCRIPT (2 FRAMES) (MSS WILL: ESTATE RECORD BOOK A-1, PAGE 52) Names Indexed: MONTGOMERY, James ADAIR, Rebeckah ROSS, Isabella MONTGOMERY, Margaret / Margret ADAIR, James ROSS, George LACEY, William PEARSON, Thomas CRAIG, William CRAIG, John CRAIG, Isabella
Locations: NINETY SIX DISTRICT, GREENVILLE COUNTY, LAURENS COUNTY, ENOREE RIVER, HARROLD BRANCH ----- The James Montgomery of Laurens Co, SC had a plat for 150 acres in Craven County in 1773. Did he emigrate around that time with George Ross ? He also had 466 acres on Mountain Creek, Greenville Co.
James Montgomery was in the 1782 S.C. Legislature. Would there be any S.C. Biographical Records for James Montgomery ?
