Fairbairns of Westmarch/Tolkien

Did you fairbairns out there know that we are Hobbits? In appendix B of The Return of the King (the last book in tolkiens Trilogy) it states that we are descended from Samwise the Gardener through his daughter Elinor the Fair. Just before Samwise (friend and confidant of Bilbo Baggins) crossed over to the Grey Havens, he intrusted The Red Book, the book of bilbo's travels, to his daughter, and her descendents, the Fairbairns of the Towers, wardens of Westmarch, became the Keepers of the Red Book. WE'RE ALL HOBBITS! Thought you'd like to know! Cindy
