June 10 1776. John Adair from Carters Valley signed Fincastle Co. Petition.(?) For his services in the war (of 1774?) he received 640 acre land grant Knox Co and built Adair Station.
An interesting entry was from "Clan Snodgrass" showing James Adair, son of John Adair and Eleanor (Crawford), m. 1stly unknown, had dau. Betty who m.1772 in Rockbridge Co. VA to Sam Snodgrass m. 2ndly July 19 1791 in Rockbridge VA to Isabella (Lowry) Hamilton.
Perhaps James & David Adare / Adair were sons of John & Eleanor Adair (nee Crawford ?) and were also in the war (of 1774 ?) for which they received land grants as payment ?They may have been in Fincastle Co or Washington Co VA c.1774 ?
