So here ends my list of the known John Adairs of these Adair families that were in Adams Co., PA.There could be others considering there were more male Adairs above who I'm sure had male children and I don't know their names.
I'm hoping someone else out there working on a Adair family in Adams Co., PA can help clarify or add to or link some info or John Adair.
I thought if I concentrated on who was there alive in 1830 census time, I might have luck connected my John C Adair to his family.
Hope to hear from you other Adair researchers.
