No, I don't.I'm descended from another Adair in the same area, James Addair of Montgomery County (roughly 1750-1823).Unfortunately nobody knows where he came from either!I was interested since my family thought we were related to the Adairs of Lurich, Virginia, who are descended from Rev. William Adair's brother James.One of the few stories passed down was that my great great grandfather rode to an estate settlement in Lurich, thinking he was entitled to part ofthe settlement, and returned with only a barberry bush!I wonder if this story somehow got confused with the story of James Addair Jr.'s estate settlement in 1848 in Pulaski County, Virginia (we ARE related to him).
Anyhow, I wondered if maybe Rev. William Adair came to that area because he had relatives there.It could be he just was sent (by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia) and had no say in the matter.It would be interesting to track down the church records in Philadelphia from that time.
Shirley, the amazing Adair researcher, has tracked down some details about Rev. William.Post 5759 shows the boat he arrived on and a great deal of information about the rebellion he was involved in.Shirley noted some possibilities for parents of Rev. William in posts 6388 and 6110 from Glasgow records.
There was another Adair in Monroe County in the early years when Rev. William first came - John Adair.I think he is likely the John Adair who married Elizabeth McKnight in Augusta County in 1791, and who later ended up in Madison County, Ohio - I tried to lay out that theory in post 6385.He may be a relative of Rev. William and his brother John - maybe another brother?
