Walter “Black Watt” Adair and Rachel Thompson (Rowena McClinton, The Moravian Spring Place Mission to the Cherokees, Vol. II, p. 455). Emmet Starr gives a brief genealogy of the Adairs in his History of the Cherokee Indians, p. 510:
John and Edward Adair, Scotchman and brothers, married into the Cherokee Nation in about 1770. John was the father of Walter Adair, called "Black Watt,” and Edward had a son, Walter Scott Adair, called "Red Watt” Adair. Dr. Walter Thompson Adair, son of Geo. Washington and grandson of "Black Watt” married Mary Buffington Adair the daughter of "Red Watt" Adair and they were the parents of William Penn Adair...
John Adair, a Scotchman, married Mrs. Ge-ho-ga Foster, a full blood Cherokee of the Deer clan. She was a sister of Mrs. Dorcas Duncan, wife of Young Charles Gordon Duncan who was also a Scotchman. Adair had five children that lived to be grown and after her death he married Jennie Kilgore, a White woman, by whom he had ten children.
