We have never found any records that lists a middle name or initial for our James ADAIR b. 08 Jun 1790 in York Co. SC.[For awhile we did think his middle inital was "T" but this was due to confusion with another James Adair.]

I am still searching for Proof that William ADAIR b. 1799 in SCis a brother to James ADAIR b. 1790.They were the only ADAIR's listed in 1830 census of Henry Co. GA.All the Proof I've found is the fact that the wife of William ADAIR was Susannah Davis Rooker b. 1801 in York Co. GA to Rev. John Rooker & Anna Hawkins.John ADAIR & Jean FAIRES did have a son born abt. 1799 but I've not been able to prove this was Willliam ADAIR in Henry Co. GA.
