Perhaps may be connected with Hugh Adair who married 9th April 1833 Teresa Tinsdale, parish Kirkinriola or Kirconriola, barony of Lower Toome, county Antrim, Ulter, Ireland. The Parish contains the post-town of Ballymena.This parish also called Kilconriola and Ballymena.The Rector in 1836 was Rev. Wm. Adair. Seems like a lot of Adair refugees from the 1798 Battle of Ballinahinch/Ballynahinch, co.Down may have fled to USA. Think the Rev.Wm.Adair may have assisted them.Refer also to the Robert (Robin) Adair of Ballymena, Antrim.
