John A Fairbairn **
(Apr 1833 - Mar 1909)
|Father||John Fairbairn * (cir. 1799 - 1847); Dna results rcvd Mar 2009 for William (F-12), a documented descendant of John, show an excellent match to Roy (F-3) a documented descendant of David's brother William.|
This led to a theory that despite what John's 1st marriage, and death certificate stated (that his father was John or Jonathan), that the John A who married Sarah Ann Daughterty, then Charity Smithson is the son of David and Jane (Williamson) Fairbairn.
A new titbit (Dec 2009) however restores my faith in certificates somewhat as it indicates that David may well have been known as John, as both a David and a John are reported as millers at Farrelton, and both married to Jane Williamson
|Mother||Jane Williamson (1794 - Dec 1876)|
|WebSummary||The 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.
