William E Fairbairn (F-12)

FatherDonald F Fairbairn
WebIntroWilliam was co-opted into the project to help determine if the reported "cousins" do actually fit where the charts on this site say, ie his 2*great grandfather John A Fairbairn Snr of Stillwater is indeed the son of David, brother of William.
Y-DNA DetailAt 37 markers we can see that the family of John & Jane (WILLIAMSON) FAIRBAIRN, or at the very least that of their grandson William George may be characterized, within lineage 1e, by marker 464b = 12 (l), with William's son John branching off with 460 = 11 (k), the only participant in Lineage 1e to do so (there is a smattering of Lineage 1 matches outside lineage 1e who also share 460 = 11.)

WebSummaryThe Hoquiam Triangle: Way back in 2009 we had a supposed connection between Lineage 1e and a family in Hoquiam. It was eventually proven that they were different lines, of a more distantly connected set of Fairbairns.
This being from the dna results for William (F-12), a documented descendant of John A Fairbairn Snr of Stillwater, Washington Co, MN, with Bill showing as an excellent match to Roy (F-3), the descendant of John's uncle William, so all in lineage 1e (phew!) The relationship to the other side of the Hoquiam triangle is rather murkier however as the representative of the Sunderland side of the triangle, Joe (F-10), belongs to lineage 1c. Still related, but how?
The 3rd side of the triangle, represented by Joe (F-10), is showing closer relationships to the lineage 1 modal instead, which is currently (Feb 2013) matched by Bill(F-53), one of the Cockburnspath FAIRBAIRNs.
