Hi Anne, I have sent your request to Mary in New Zealand who is descended from Phairs and has been researching the name.She at one time had info on a Robert Phair but could find nothing further. Interestingly enough I, too, am descended from a Robert Phair, from County Armagh, who settled in Ontario. Also Lizzie,the daughter of our Robert, joined family in N.Z. and is buried there. Good luck.
