Hi Mary, I am researching all the FAIRHURST families of Knox Co., IN,I have identified 6 early FAIRHURST families in Knox Co. that I have been unable to find the connection between them. The six early families are: 1) Samuel FAIRHURST (bc1770-d.?) md. Ann 2) Mary FAIRHURST (b.9 Jan 1793VA-d. 3 Nov 1875) md. Alanson G. ROBERTS. 3) Wilson FAIRHURST (bc1800VA-d.?)md. Mary JARRELL 4) John FAIRHURST (b.1790to1800-d.bef1850) md1. Sarah WESTFALL md2. Susan ROLLER. 5) Wesley FAIRHURST (b.1823-d. 2 Jan 1862) md. Katherine VESTER. 6) Washington FAIRHURST (b.25 Feb 1813VA-d.30 Aug 1862) md. Elizabeth PADDOCK.After Washington died, Elizabeth md. a Mr. A. BAIRD.
For the above John FAIRHURST I believe his first wife is Sarah WESTFALL.She may have died before 1830 and they had one child, Wilson FAIRHURST (b.c1822-d.?)md. Martha unknown.John then md. 27 July 1830 to Susan ROLLER and they had 5 children that I know of.I am very unsure about the children of John and if he had the two wives.None of the children I have listed are named John Jr.
I am descended from #1, Samuel FAIRHURST. Hope this helps.I would be interested in what all you have on your John FAIRHURST.
