Hi, I think that I can help you.There is a birth record from Lapeer County for Jonathan Fairbotham in the birth records I have listed in records I have here at home.His birth apparently took place in Ontario, Canada, but was registered in Lapeer County.His birth is recorded in book 2, page 212, record number 312.There is also a listing for the birth of Peter J. Fairbottom.He was born in Imlay Twp. on February 8, 1882 to William and Ida J. (perhaps Jane?), both parents born in Ontario (same as on Jonathan's record).William is listed as a laborer on both records.Peter's birth is recorded in book 3, page 6, record number 1505. I hope that this is helpful.
