Adair Co. Revolutionary War veterans

By Mike Watson

A list of Revolutionary War veterans who are known to have lived in Adair County.

Some lived and died here; some lived here for a time and moved away; some moved here near the end of life. Several resided in Russell County once it was formed. Some lived very near the county lines and are claimed by more than one county and rightly so. Any additions and corrections to this list will be greatly appreciated.
