Recruit(Relationship2Prove)The project would like to recruit a representative of Thomas's line to prove a relationship with John Fairbairn
(which would clinch the identification of the John married to Margaret DEANS as being the son John with Alexander in 1851. We aren't fussy, a descendant of Thomas' brother Alexander, who married Margaret WATSON, would suit just as well.)
BirthHe was born 18 Oct 1824 Oxnam, Roxburghshire, Scotland, (the date being from the 1901 Canadian census for the John married to Margaret Deans, and the place being from the 1851 census of a John, son of Alexander.) 
MarriageHe married Margaret Deans 13 Jan 1854 Eckford, Roxburghshire, Scotland
DeathJohn Fairbairn died 25 May 1907 West Garafraxa, Wellington Co, Ontario, Canada, at age 82.
