Re: Maria Fairbanks Doggett
Regarding the Mary Fairbanks born in Medfield to David and Mary, I checked one of the 'bibles' of Medfield Genealogy, History of the Town of Medfield Massachusetts, 1650-1886, by William S. Tilden. (Copyright by George H. Ellis 1887)
Medfield, by the way, is only a few towns over from Mendon, where I believe your Maria was...
From page 386 of the above book:
DAVID FAIRBANKS of Sharon came here in 1809, and bought the estate where the town hall stands, including a store.The house he enlarged, and kept a tavern there for several years.About 1816, he built the house opposite the head of South Street, and soon after a new store at the corner of North Street, moving away the old one [sic].He was the business man of the town,--kept a large assortment of goods, carried on the manufacture of straw bonnets, and run [sic] a boarding-house for his help.He also traded in real estate to a considerable extent; was on the board of selectman for two years.His wife was Mary Billings of Sharon.Lewis Fairbanks, a brother of his, a carpenter, lived here a few years, built the house on South Street now owned by J. B. Hale.Another brother, John Fairbanks, bootmaker, also lived here, and married Adeliza Wight (117).He died in 1830.Still another brother, Jason Fairbanks, lived here, and a sister, Sarah, who married Asa Clark (243).Lydia Fairbanks, the mother of the five, died here in 1832.David Fairbanks failed in business, and removed to New York.His house was sold to Captain William Felt in 1821.
In the section of the book titled "Births, Marriages, and Deaths...Recorded in Medfield, 1651-1850, not included in the foregoing genealogies", no additional Fairbanks births, marriages, or deaths are listed.
If you think this David Fairbanks is indeed the father of your Maria, there's one more little passage about David regarding his store that I could transcribe for you, so just let me know.
