In Reply to: Re: James Fairbairn - Cockburnspath by Tom Dean of 541

Hello Tom, I am very interested in learning about the book taht was published and how to get a copy.

I have been trying to research my father's family for the past year. So far, thanks to the help of a number of people in the forum, I have established that my great grandfather was a John Fairbairn (of which there are many....) born around 1850 and who died in the Eyemouth Disaster at age 31. He was married to Margaret Crow and had at least 2 sons (among them my grandfather, George Crow Fairbairn who was born in Cockburnspath in 1874 and apparaently died in 1910).

I am still trying to find info on my ggrandfather's date of birth and his parents.

Best wishes to you!
Bill Fairbairn
