An error has crept into the genealogies regarding Adair's parentage. Bad sources are quoting other bad sources. I can find NO reputable source attributing his parentage to Gerald Fitzgerald, other than Wikipedia and one crowd-contributed database on the LDS ancestry site. If someone can find hard evidence, please tell me!
