re : Bucks Co., Pa. Bristol: 1742 - Edward Adear, Peter Bankson 1753 - Edward Audear, William Audear (single man), John Allen, Patrick Harrigan(?) 1761 - William Adair 1763-66 William Adair
Would the above Adear & Bankson have had relatives who emigrated from Ireland in 1760 ?Will have to check out the Wakefield connection too.
RACHEL BANKSON was probably born in NC, but family tradition says that Rachel Bankson (m. Wakefield) and her husband were both born on the same ship in 1760 when their parents emigrated from Ireland.Her mother was thought to be named O'Dear (Adair).
Rachel BANKSON married Mr. WAKEFIELD, probably in Georgia where their daughter was born.The Wakefields then journeyed to Illinois and were pioneer settlers of Shelby Co.She died in Shelby Co., IL c.1842.
