My great great grandfather was George Fairbairn, who married Elizabeth Purdie, of Edinburg, Scotland. Their son, Charles came to Pennsylvania, USA. Charles lived 1842 to 1898. He had six children, Charles, Mary, George, William, Archibald, and my grandfather, Thomas Purdie Fairbairn, who migrated to California along with several brothers. He then changed his name to Fairburn.
