I have info on two John Adairs with TN connections. According to a local Knoxville TN History book, John Adair(1) was born in Ireland in 1732. He and his wife,Ellen Crawford Adair, came to America in 1771.They landed in Baltimore,lived there for one year,moved to PA for a short time and then came to the Watauga Settlements in then Sullivan County,NC- now near Bristol,TN. He lived there 12 years. He was granted a section( one square mile of wilderness)Land Grant 28 for his "service" with Sevier and Shelby in Rev War . This is now in the Fountain City area of Knoxville. Will email pics and info.
