I am presently working on my family tree. I have traced the Blair ancestry back to a Thomas Blair, born in England. I do not know his date of birth or death. His son Robert was born in 1859. He married an Esther Marlin, born in Ireland. If anyone has any information in connection with either name, I would appreciate you contacting me. On the Rees side, I have discovered this ancestry back to a Mary McDowell and Charles Orivan (sp). They were the parents of Ellen Orivan (wife of Samuel Rees). Ellen was born in 1837/died 1917. Samuel was born in 1835/died1913. I still am looking for his parents names, etc. Any information would be appreciated.I believe that Samuel was born in Pennsylvania.Thankyou.
