(Some of) the family of John & Helen (Grieve) Fairbairn in the Fairbairn One Name Study/DNA project
Although the One Name Study data is far from complete for the family, source data is needed here on WikiTree for some of the children listed as belonging to John & Helen, particularly Thomas 1718, Isobel 1722, Agnes 1726.
Naming pattern for assumed parents would mean that there is likely a son George, baptism/proof yet to be found.Henderson-2297 23:48, 21 January 2017 (EST)
