Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 7, 1865

John B. Adair enlisted on May 2nd, 1861, at New York City, New York, for two years service at the age of 30, and was mustered into service as a Private in Company B of the 9th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, Hawkins Zouaves, on May 4th, 1861. He was wounded in action on September 17th, 1862, at Sharpsburg, Maryland, and after recovering from his wounds rejoined his company and was mustered out of service with the Company on May 20th, 1863, at New York City, New York.

After being mustered out he re-enlisted on June 18th, 1863, at New York City, New York, for three years service, at the age of 32, and was mustered into service as a Private in Company D of the 9th New York Veteran Volunteer Infantry Regiment on August 29th, 1863. The regiment was never completed and the men were transferred as a whole to the 17th New York Veteran Volunteer Infantry Regiment on October 14th, 1863, and designated as Company H. He apparently contracted an illness while in service and died of disease on March 5th, 1865, at the Hospital on David's Island, New York Harbor, New York.

John Adair was described by his comrade Edward K. Wightman of Company B, 9th New York, as being "…a morose little Frenchified American, dirty and selfish…."
