I am researching the FAIRMAN family of Fort Scott, Bourbon County, Kansas at the turn of the century. John H FAIRMAN was born abt 1877 in Kansas, but he lists his father and mother as having been born in Ohio. The only other FAIRMAN listed in the 1920 census of the correct age to be his father is A.D. FAIRMAN, born in OH and listing his parents as also born in OH. I believe the A.D. could be Amos D. There was an Amos D. who married Ann TAYLOR 26 Dec 1853 in Morgan Ohio. This may be the father of the A.D. listed in the 1920 census.
Do you have anything on these names: A.D., Amos D., John, Charles, Carl.
