Coment: Compare this with the William married to Isobel SINTON recorded in the "Pre-Confederation Scottish Emigrants to Canada" #2303: FAIRBAIRN, William 1798-1865 (h/stone has 1862). From Whitton, Morebattle, ROX. bro/o Edward F. 1787-1853, who d at Buffalo, NY, USA. To Peterborough Co, ONT, 1858 Moved in 1861 to Egremont Twp, Grey Co. Farmer m.Isobel SYNTON, qv.ch: 1. Margaret , b 1832; 2. Janet; 3. Rev Robert , 1837-1931, res Minota, MAN; 4. John, 1840-1925. This William is represented in the project by F-5.
Suspect the 1815 William is actually the miller William, married to Jean Wanless, and brother to the John or David who married Jane Williamson.
