Hi.I'm trying to find a link between two groups of Adairs. My grandmother was Ruth Adair, daughter of Harry C. Adair (1868-1939) born in Nebraska, died in CA.
Harry's parents were Samuel Adair (born 1818 in OH, died 1886 in CO) and Jane Melvin McDonald (born 1827 in OH, died 1899 in CA).
Sam's parents were Joseph Ewing Adair (b 1799 in VA, d 1849 in OH) andEliza Winders Moore Coons (Birth 1799 in OH).
Then I believe Joe's parents were John Adair (1750-1824) and Elizabeth McKnight Burgess (1762-1845).And then John's parentswere anotherJohn Adair (1732-1824, born in Ireland died in OH) and Ellen Crawford (1734-1827) .
Now comes the disconnect.My grandmother thought her ancestors included Robin Adair and Lady Caroline Keppel, and their son Sir Robert Adair(May 1793-1855)and his wife Angeligue Gabrielle Hazincourt (b.1765)Sir Robert seems to have only one daughter Elizabeth (1809-1829) who became Mrs Edward Grey.
SO: Does anyone know of a connection between "my" John Adairs and Robin Adair and Lady Caroline?Was Sir Robert the last Adair in that chain?
