Hello Earline:

I have been fairly successful with other contacts from your immediate family line. I will share these with you, but not on the public domain. I have a contact from Mary Jane (Fairbairn) Pickett family (sister of Ruby), and I have a contact from the family of James Earl Fairbairn (brother of Ruby). I also have contacts from the family of George Milne Fairbairn in Montana, and close to home here in Ontario - through Grace Fairbairn (author of the Two Hundred Year History) and her sister Edith. Edith is 98 and still alive. Their father was George Fairbairn & Elizabeth Frith.

What I have on the Doan family is rudimentary, but this is the information I have:

Allen Clark Doan married Mary Eliabeth Robins/Robbins

Their children:

Jessie Izillia Doan, b. 27 May 1874 in Pelham Wellanc Co. Ont. died 1958 in Essex Co. married Robert (Bob) Fairbairn 1 November 1893 Sandwich South Twp., Essex

Now for JESSIE IZILLIA DOAN and Robert Fairbairn b. 26 July 1872 Sandwich, Essex, bpt. 16 Oct 1872 Sandwich E., d. Dec. 1918 in Essex - their children are: (I have a neat photograph of her and one of Robert)
