Fran, Thanks for the follow-up.With Benjamin Adair being a brother-in-law of David George it makes sense why Zadoc and Benjamin are part of the David George estate settlement. Your information is exactly what helps tie my ancestor, John George, directly to Laurens Co.
FYI My ancestor, William Johnston, and David George, his father-in-law, and their families arrived in Caldwell Co., Ky. prior to 5 May 1801 when Wm. Johnston was granted entitlement to 200 acres on a branch of Eddy Creek (Livingston Co., Ky. Clerk of Court (Smithland, Ky.) Land Entry Book, entry #48); on 6 September 1802 David George was entitled to on Eddy Creek (Livingston Co., Ky. Clerk of Court (Smithland, Ky.) 1800-1817 Deeds Book A-C, entry # 459).
I did not recognize the importance of the Adair family in this clan and did not pursue those land records in Smithland.
After the death David George, Wm. Johnston, his family and many of the George family migrated to Dallas and Perry Co.s Alabama during the cotton boom there.I don’t know if the Adair descendants moved to Dallas/Perry Co.
Maybe this will be some help in your search (or not :-)Now I’ve got more research to do in Laurens Co. S.C.
