Fairbairn Family Genealogy Forum
Does anyone have any info on this gentleman? I have 3 book sources which say that he was the son of James Fairbairn and grandson of James Fairbairn who was a survivor in the 1881 great storm. Only problem is that I have been in contact with the widow of one of the children of James Jr. and when she sent me a list of the children there is no Alfred. Also, James Jr's obituary (d. 1953 in Cove, Co'path) doesn't mention Alfred or even a son alive in Scotland, just 2 sons in Canada and 1 daughter in Australia.
Does anyone know if there was maybe another James Fairbairn who survived the storm and who was from Cockburnspath?
Please help as this is thoroughly frustrating me!!!
