Hi Sheila!

I believe that I have connected your Andrew McNair and Catherine Clister to my McNair family. I think Andrew was the son of Robert McNair son of John McNair. Did you have the same information? I am descended from this John McNair's (McNear) son William, who's grandchildren also ended up in Iowa. Several of us are trying to find the father of John McNear, who apparently went from New Jersey to Somerset County Pennsylvania in 1770. His birthdate is somewhere around 1740 or 1750. He died in Turkeyfoot, PA and is buried at the Cross Roads burial ground located halfway between Ursina and Harnedsville Pennsylvania. Also buried there are Samuel and Eleanor Wheeler who died 1915 and 1917. If you have any information about John, or if I have gotten the connection between John Robert and Andrew wrong please let me know.

In your post, you wrote, "nancy ann mcnair born 1-12-1832 fayette co,pa d-10-24-1910 marr. robert r. mcnair 10-10-1852 fayette co,pa by john van sickle,esq.born 3-14-1828 d-4-5-1897 never had children of their own,but adopted william w. mcnair when he was 5yrs old his parents was clark and catherine (drake)mcnair/mcneer and alice ann mcnair when she was 2yrs old both of children born in pa."

Here, you've identified William McNair's birth parents as Clark and Catherine (Drake) McNair/McNeer. Do you have any records indicating Alice Ann (McNair) Monfore's birth parents? (She was my great-great-grandmother.)

Regards,
Loren Golden

I am researching Peter McNair who was married to Deborah Conway. The lineage I am working through is their son Joseph. Do you have information on this family you are willing to share?

One tree on ancestry shows this info:
Name: Peter J. MCNAIR
Sex: M
Birth: ABT. 1836 in Fayette Co. Pennsylvania
Fact 1: Farmer in Clark County, Iowa

Father: Andrew Smith MCNAIR b: 9 APR 1810 in Pennsylvania
Mother: Catherine CLUSTER b: 1810 in Pennsylvania

Marriage 1 Deborah CONWAY b: 4 JUL in Pennsylvanna
* Married: WFT Est. 1852-1887
Children
1. A.J. MCNAIR b: ABT. 1864 in Pennsylvanna
2. J.D. MCNAIR b: NOV 1868 in Pennsylvanna
3. Sylvester MCNAIR b: MAY 1876 in Milo, Iowa
4. Peter J. McNair JR b: APR 1880 in Iowa
5. William H. MCNAIR b: JUN 1882 in Iowa

Marriage 2 Mary O. LEONARD b: WFT Est. 1836-1879 in Iowa
* Married: 29 SEP 1896 in Chariton, Iowa
Children
1. Benedict K. MCNAIR b: JUL 1898 in Iowa

I had the following census records saved: The 1850 Census shows Peter McNair living with parents Andrew and Catherine McNair in Henry Clay, Fayette Co. Pennsylvania. In 1880 he is with wife #1 in Whitebreast, Warren co. IA. In 1885 they are in the same city, but it shows they live next to Ellis and Martha McNair, ages 26 (or 20? hard to read) and 24. Ellis is the son of Robert C. McNair (who married Clara Jane). In 1900 Peter lives with wife #2 in Liberty, Clarke county, IA.

The family tree on ancestry had the father of Andres McNair as Robert, born 1775 in Maryland and Robert's father as Samuel, born 1724-1753, and Samuel as the son of Alexander, born 1684-1727 in Frederick County, Maryland. All of this info was on One World Tree. I had Andrew Smith McNair's parents as Robert McNair, and his father as John McNair. I will look to see what evidence I had showing this, as I usually don't record something unless I see at least some evidence that shows it to be true. I'll get back to you on that.
