John Adair jnr. applied for a pension from Wayne Co, KY 24 Sep 1832.
He stated that he was born 1754 Co Antrim, Ireland, and that he and his parents (John Adair bc. 1732 co. Antrim, N. Ireland, then of Knox Co Tennesee ?) came to America when he was nearing 18 years of age (c.1773-4 ?).
He was living in Sullivan Co, North Carolina (later TN) when the War of the Revolution began and served as a volunteer in expeditions commanded by officer McCampbell. He was granted a pension as a result of his service.
In 1791 John Adair jnr. moved (did he move, or was the name changed ?) to Knox Co, TN. Roane County was formed 1801 from Knox Co, TN.
After living there 14 yrs he moved to Wayne Co, KY where he died in 1835 (?). --------- Would John have had a young brother, William Adair, bc.1773 Ireland who possibly moved to Morgan Co AL ?
