Surnames: BLAIR
I don't think this is the same line...although I will not rule it out. My BLAIR's of York Co. show up in Carroll twp and Warrington twp, around Dillsburg. I have a Brice Blair (d. 1836) buried with his wife Mary (d. June 1845)at the Monaghan Presby. Church, Dillsburg. I understand that there were some Blair's further south in the county, but don't know if it is the same line, or how connected.

Surnames: Blair, Suter
I have information that our immigrant Blair ancestor, William Blair, came to York Co. in 1765 and married Sarah Suter, daughter of George Suter of York. William served in the Revolutionary War. He came to the U.S. with two brothers. One was named James and he settled in Charlotte, N.C. The other is unknown. There is a gap between William and John Francis Blair who was born in 1804, and lived in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. Does this tie in with your Blairs at all?

But be advised that there were 2 William BLAIRs in York Co at about the same time and both served in the REV WAR. This about our William:
"As a resident of York Co, PA, during the Revolutionary War, William Blair was a private in Capt Samuel Hay's Company No.1 in Col William Irvine's Regiment of 6th Battalion, enlisting on 28 Feb 1776. He was captured by the British troops under Gen Frazier on 8 June 1776 at Trois Rivers, Quebec about 45 miles down the St. Laurence River from the mouth of the Sorel River. Gen Thompson and about 200 men were captured here and about 25 slain by the enemy. He was paroled 6 Aug 1776.

I think you need to contact Richard Blair Anderson Jr []. He was kind enough to do a look up for me on some English lines and knew I lived in York. He is looking for the Suter and Blairs you mentioned.
Could you please email him and tell him I sent you? That way it is a more direct line and he can tell you what he needs.
