Seeking information on the ancestors, parents and family of James Adair, Sr. (c 1761; Scotland or Ireland - 1839, Monroe or Greenbrier Co., VA/WV). All we know of his childhood family is that it included siblings William, Jane, Mary and Robert. As for his adult family, he apparently married a Mary Wallace (daughter of Robert Wallace)in the late 1700s (in Ireland?) and settled in the parish of Comber, County Down, Ireland. James, Sr. and Mary had several children including William Adair (bc 1804, Ireland; d 18??, VA; a Presbyterian minister) and James (bc 1807, Ireland; our direct ancestor). In 1817, James, Sr. followed his brother (Rev. William's) lead and immigrated with his family to VA (Norfolk area). They eventually migrated down into SW VA before settling in Greenbrier and Monroe Co.'s, VA/WV, respectively by 1820.
Any leads or info on James Adair, Sr.'s ancestors or family would be very much appreciated. If possible, please copy any responses to my personal e-mail address as well.
