Tim, Think there also may have been a Rev.Wm.Adair. Have only looked quickly on the internet: "The Rising of 1798" at http://www.ireland.org/irl_hist/hist37.htm and "Outbreak of the 1798 Rebellion", but when I tried to get into it again I had trouble finding it at: http://homepages.go.com/~ei5em/rebel1.html This one was good with music. I had written down Tony Breathnach, but cannot remeber if he wrote it or whatever. Mentions the famous battle in Ulster at Ballinahinch, co.Down where on 9 June protestant Hy Monroe led the rebels, and it mentioned that all united (I take it that the Presbyterians & Catholics) "in the pursuit if liberty and a common Irish identity. They were defeated. McCracken & Monroe were executed. Others fled and I believe that some may have been leading Presbyterian Adairs, along with their perhaps poorer relations. Perhaps the Presbyterian burials records for Belfas may have more information, along with Irish sites on the internet. Believe a lot of the Adairs came from around the co.Antrim, co.Down areas. Have you any info ?
