FYI the only William FAIRBAIRN dth registered 1893 is at Cockburnspath and is William, aged 61, son of James FAIRBAIRN, fisherman and Jane m.s. ANDERSON, both dec'd.. Married to Margaret GRANT. The SctPeople index 1893 to 1897 doesn't show any William dying Coldstream. If this is meant to be the William son of James FAIRBAIRN and Catherine ALLAN (which the birth date sort of implies (born 21 June 1831), he was still alive in the 1901 census, married to Christian ANDERSON, living at Coldstream Mains. If you let me know which family from your upload he connects to I'll happily tidy this up for you. He looks a bit lonely currently with no family Lorna

William is 31 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 30 degrees from Robynne Lozier, 27 degrees from Pocahontas Rolfe and 28 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
