(1812 - Apr 1895)
|Father||Walter Fairbairn (cir. 1784 - Jan 1859)|
|Mother||Agnes Robertson (cir. 1786 - Apr 1863)|
|WebIntro||For many years Ed and I have been trying to prove that John Fairbairn of Delaware Co, New York, known to be the son of a "Walter of Roxburghshire", was a previously unknown son of Walter and Agnes (Robertson/Robison) of Morebattle.|
There were plenty of gaps between their known children where John in New York would fit by date, and naming patterns indicated that Walter and Agnes "should" have a second son named John.
DNA results just in (May 2009) have shown that this theory may well be fact, with a 12/12 match so far between Martin (F-1) and Michael (F-16).
These were subsequently further strengthened with the 65/67 match between Michael (F-16) and a documented descendant of Walter's brother David (F-29).
And now, Apr 2011, documentary evidence has been found clearly stating John's parents to be Walter FAIRBAIRN and Agnes ROBINSON.
