The True Identity of the Cherokee Indians

Cherokee IndiansThere has been much speculation on the origin of the Cherokee Indians in Georgia and Tennessee. A widely accepted book "James Adair: His Life and History." published by University of Alabama Press (2005) states that James Adair (1709 to 1775) is widely believed to have been born in County Antrim, Ireland, in 1709, although no evidence to support the contention exists. My own studies of the Adair families in America corroborate this data. As a matter of fact, I have traced back to Robert Adair b. ca 1360 at Galloway, Scotland, Sheriff in 1426 m. Arabella Campbell, a dau. of the most noble house in Scotland, the house of Argyle. This genealogy is available to members of Georgia Pioneers The Georgia branch of the family immigrated from County Antrim, Ireland and arrived in Pennsylvania during the early 1700s. From there, they joined other Irish families in Berk and Bucks County before following the trail to Laurens County, South Carolina. The final destination was North Georgia. James Adair was an Indian Trader, trading with the Catawbas, Cherokees and Chickasaws. While Georgia mostly entertained the tribes of Upper and Lower Creeks governed by the Creek Agent Hawkins near Macon, Georgia, the Cherokees settled in the North Georgia Counties of Lumpkin, Paulding,
