Bill:None of these names look familiar. Our lines goes as follows: George Fairbairn m. Margaret Dinn in Scotland.Both born in Scotland.Margaret was probably his second wife. George, Margaret and two children, William Dinn and Margaret lived in Illinois where parents and daughter diedand are buried in Hamilton County, IL. William Dinn Fairbairn married Emma Sly.We don't know where as Emma's father, Elijah Sly, was born in Scioto, Ohio. William and Emma had seven children, one of which was James W. Fairbairn.William and Emma are buried in Claflin, KS. James married Elizabeth Piel in Holyrood, Kansas. Their daughter, Emma Louise Fairbairn married Lynden Erwin Almquist.Lynden and Louise are my husband's parents. There may be a connection, but I don't know where.I keep searching.Am going to send the email (from GenForum, notifying me of your response) to all my other Fairbairn researchers.My email address is email@example.com and you may feel free to contact me direct.However, in the interest of genealogy, any further discoveries should be posted here for all to see, okay? Thanks for your prompt response.
