This is my Phair family,I have not had much luck trying to trace them.
William Phair, (b) we thought 1885, now 1882. Lived in Bristol, Rhode Island. He was a chauffeur at the "Breakers" in Rhode Island for a time. He met my grandmother Catherine H. Murray, who worked their as well, as a cook. Family stories say he was married to a Virginia (?) first. They moved to Hyde Park, MA and then to Dedham, MA. in early 1920's. Two children born to them, Catherine V. and William M. Phair. William Sr. was now a rigger for the railroad.
The name Phair was not a common name then as now. This is what I have found on census reports:
John Phair~~age 61~~w~~gardener~~Ireland
Ellen ~~age 56~~w~~keeping house~~Ireland
William~~son~~w~~age 28~~w/cotton mill~~Ireland
1880~~census~~Bristol, Rhode Island
William Phair~~w~~age 35~~farmer~~Ireland
Ellen ~~W~~age40~~keeping house~~Ireland

John J Phair~~head~~w~~age 29~~Rhode Island~~Parents Ireland
Rachel~~wife~~w~~age 28~~Rhode Island

These are mine.
William Phair~~w~~age 38~~chauffeur~~Rhode Island
Catherine H (Murray)~~w~~age 29~~Canada
Catherine~~daughter~~w~~age 5/12~~Massachusetts (my mother)
William Phair~~w~~age 48~~Rhode Island~~parents N.Ireland
Catherine H (Murray)~~w~~age 39~~Canada~~parents Canada
William M~~w~~son~~age 8~~Massachusetts
I believe these Phair's are all related in some way, maybe cousins. Can anyone help with these families? Thank you in advance, Judith
