THANK YOU Don Maring for posting the information about my 4th Great Grandparents James FAIRES and Jane ADAIR originally from New Castle DE (now PA) who migrated to York Co. SC in 1768. Yes,Richard and Samuel were both brothers to Jame ADAIR FAIRES & all children of William ADAIR who died in Pencader Hd., New Castle Co., Delware before 29 Nov 1779 . I greatly appreciate you sending this information to a total stranger.
Jean ADAIR FAIRES had a nephew John ADAIR, Jr b. abt. 1760-1765 (s/o her brother John ADAIR, Sr) that I've searched for years. I think Nephew John ADAIR could be the same person that married Jean FAIRES, the d/o Jean ADAIR FAIRES because they are both the same age & from New Castle DE.
Would you happen to know if in the year 1789 a Mother's Nephew was PERMITTED to marry the Mother's daughter?
The Faires Family says that the John ADAIR, husband of Jean Faires was from New Castle, DE but so far I've not been able to find proof her husband's parents. Since I live in Texas I'm unable to search the old DE records myself so I may need to wait for a younger generation to solve this mystery.
Again,thank you for thinking of other researchers.
