Thomas Jefferson Adair was born 31 May 1814 in Indiana to Thomas Adair (1774-1858) and Rebecca Brown (1776-1846) and died 19 September 1890 Show Low, Apache County, Arizona of unspecified causes. He married Frances Rogers (1818-1847) 26 January 1836 in Pickens County, Alabama. He married Mary Vance (1820-1918) 1846 in Mount Pisgah, Harrison County, Iowa.
Shortly after his birth, the Adair Family settled with many of their extended family in Pickens County, Alabama. There Thomas was married to his first wife, Frances Rogers (1818-1847). Circa 1840 they moved for Chickasaw County, Mississippi and by 1844 had joined the Chickasaw 1845 LDS Branch there along with other members of the extended Richey/Adair/Mangum family clan.
In 1857, a group of about 38 southerner families were called by Brigham Young (1801-1877) on to settle the Virgin River area of Southwest Utah and to crow cotton, to decrease the saints reliance on expensive product from back east. Other pioneer families joined them in 1861 but this ambitious endeavor came to an end after the close of the Civil War and cotton prices collapsed.
