Adair County, Iowa - one of four Adairs in the US

We wonder if families from Adair County, KY went west and named their new home for the one they left? That theory would have to be worked out by historians like Mike Watson and Vonnie Kolbenschlag, however, we can visit and share that there are four counties by our same name in the US.

The state of Iowa - where this "other Adair County" feature is located - was surveyed and laid out in counties in 1851. Land offices had been established as early as 1838, and land sold for $1.25 per acre. The money was used by the Government to defray the costs of the War of 1812. With the advent of the railroads land went up to $2.50 per acre.

Like ours, the Iowa county was called Adair in honor of General John Adair, an officer in the War of 1812, and sixth governor of Kentucky.
