I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you on some of your questions.
JOHN ADAIR b. Bet. 1756 - 1774 in New Castle DE JEAN ADAIR b. 14 Jun 1765 York Co. PA Married:abt. 1789 in York Co. SC
We still have NO PROOFthat William ADAIR b. 1799 was the son of John Adair and Jean Faries ADAIR (but we still think this could be true.)
RE:James ADAIR b.08 Jun 1790 & wife Ann SMITH b. 17 May 1789 had 2 sons and 1 daughter (according to census & Adair Bible records: John Smith ADAIR b. May 21, 1822 Andrew Jackson ADAIR b. May 13, 1831 AND . . My Grandparents Adair Family Bible said there was a daughter JANE ADAIR who married a man named BROOKS. A descendant of a JANE ADAIR b. 04 Jul 1827 & JOHN BROOKS b. 10 Oct 1822"THOUGHT" for over 30 years her JANE ADAIR was the d/o Whitmill Harrington ADAIR of Paulding Co. GA,but several years aga she started questioning this and as far as I know she is still searching for PROOF of which ADAIR family her JANE ADAIR belonged to . . hopefully someday Proof will be found.
RE:JEAN ADAIR w/o JAMES FAIRES family connections:
Jean Adair b.Bet. 1729 - 1740 in New Castle Co. DE d. 05 Nov 1807 in York Co. SC was d/o WILLIAM ADAIR (NOT RICHARD) b. Bet. 1690 - 1710 in Northern Ireland d. Bef. 29 Nov 1779 in Pencader Hd., New Castle Co., DE & Mary unknown who d. Bef. 1779 in New Castle Co. DE
This Jean ADAIR (d/o WILLIAM ADAIR) had BROTHER,RICHARD ADAIR, SR b. Bet. 1742 - 1750 in New Castle Co. DE d. after 1813 inNicholas or Bourbon Co. KY
RICHARD ADAIR, SR. had a son Richard Merrill Adair, Jr. b. 16 May 1788 d. 30 Nov 1866 in Carlisle, Nicholas Co. KY m. to Mary Tarr .........................
RE;WILL OF JEAN ADAIR w/o James FAIRES & d/o WILLIAM ADAIR . .WILL PROBATED 07 Dec 1807:
A York Co. SC researcher and a descendant of the FAIRES Family wrote me and said:
"The middle name "Andre" sometimes given to John Adair who married Jean Faries is derived from the Works Progress Administration (WPA) transcripts of South Carolina wills during the (1930) Depression. The name "Adare" in the recorded will was misread as "Andre".
JAMES FAIRES, dec'd, Case Number 56, File Number 2498, York Co., SC, Probate Court (Estates), James Faires, [Jr.], Executor.
"9th. I Give and Bequeath unto my Daughter Jean Married to John "Adare" as much as will pay the Doctors Bill or Bills," .........................
And this JOHN ADAIR did die before the 1810 census and his wife Jean (Faires) ADAIR d. Bet. 1816 - 1819 in York Co. SC
Ops,I almost forgot . .Yes,this JOHN ADAIR was the only ADAIR in York Co. SC who d. before 1810 and a Will has never been found for him in York Co. or in the SC State Archives . . so ar at least,but there is always hope.
(There were ADAIR families in nearby Chester Co. SC, in Laurens Co. SCand also ADAIR families in nearby North Carolina but not related to the my ADAIR line from New Castle DE as far as we know at this time.)
