Title: Seeking Any Information on ADAIR Family Philadelphia PA 1820-1880
Post by: J2_Adair on March 27, 2007, 12:00:22 AM
Family story according to my great aunt Louise Barbara ANDREW:
Her grandfather (my great great grandfather) was surnamed ADAIR (Scots-Irish) living in Philadelphia Pennsylvania in mid-19th century, employed as Pinkerton guard, married? (had child with) a Miss HALORY, and then died/left? His son (my great grandfather) took his adopted father's surname William H ANDREW, went to college in the eastern US with friend Eugene Ashton LONGLEY, and became traveling salesman coming to St Louis Missouri 1892-1895.
I have had several y-DNA studies (Ybase = ZTUX6, Ysearch = NQHG8) not matching any ANDREW or ADAIR indicating haplogroup J21b (formerly J21e). Any information would be appreciated...
Clifford George (ADAIR) ANDREW.

I have created a copy of your family tree in the pedigree forum.  Hopefully, other researchers will see it and be able to help you with your research.  Also, I would recommend checking back there periodically to see what new pedigrees have been posted, because you may be able to identify other genealogists pursuing the same leads:
