Would he be relative of the "Wilkinson's Swamp" Wilkinson family ? Thankyou James.
"This is some of my info on my Tyner ancestors and is factual as far as I can surmise from many different cousins individual searches whom have been in genealogy for more than 20 years.
Nancy Adair(my 4th great-grandmother) b.1/9/1754 in Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina d.7/28/1835 in Harrisburg, Fayette Co., Indiana
Mother:Esther McBride,Father:Robert Adair
MarriedHarris Tyner at Abbeville District, South Carolina in 1768 .
They had six children as follows:
Richard Tyner William "Dover" Jasper Tyner [Baptist preacher](my 3rd great-grandfather) James Tyner John Tyner Mehitabel "Hetty" Tyner Margaret Tyner Susannah Tyner
The Tyners and Harris families I have back to Albemarle, Chowan Co., N.C.
I haven't researched Adairs borned later than Nancy, nor found any info on her prior to mother and father.
My search show the Tyners migrated to the CATAWBA River area just across the line into South Carolina, then later to Abbeville S.C., then Frankfort, KY, then BROOKVILLE, Indiana and that's where my line parts with the others. (Were there Adairs at Brookville, IN ?)
William "Dover" Jasper Tyner was the first Protestant Minister in the Indian Territory (Indiana) in 1804.Built a church in 1814 named Little Cedar Grove Baptist Church.I visited this church as it still standing as a Historical building by State of Indiana. "
From Philip (may be 2 James Adairs)- "In March of 1773, Adair acquired 200 acres in Bladen County “on both sides of Wilkeson Swamp of [the][ Little Pedee “ from Benjamin Fuller, the deed specifically identifying James Adair as being from Dobbs County (thus confirming he lived in both Counties) and stating the property includes “an Indian Old Field.”
Adair’s subsequent purchases included 250 acres “on the north side of Wilkinson’s Swamp” on 30 January 1779 and he entered and was granted on 10 October 1787, 250 acres of land in Bladen County “on the north side of Wilkinson’s Swamp.” The property is located in present-day Robeson County which was formed from Bladen County "
