(cir. 1772 - Jul 1824)
| Recruit(AnotherWanted)||The project would like to recruit another representative of this line.|
How does this family relate to the others?
Descendants seem to have populated, or at least travelled to, many parts of the world: the Rev Patrick's extended family could be found in British Guiana, Canada, Africa and New Zealand (at least); George's in Australia, South Africa and England; John a Minister in Greenlaw, Berwickshire.
We now have a representative from the line of the Rev. Patrick FAIRBAIRN, however another from one of his brothers would be very useful in order to get a good confirmation of John's dna signature. Candidates do seem a little in short supply however, as most branches appear to have "daughtered out".
