Amanda M Scott Bair
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 13, 1835
Williams County
Ohio, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1911
Kalamazoo County
Michigan, USA

Amanda was the only child born to Sylvester Lawrence Scott and Catherine M Silvernail Scott.

Amanda's mother passed away when Amanda was just about to turn 6 months old, and her father also passed away when Amanda was 6 years old.

Not much else is apparent about Amanda's life until she married farmer, William S. Bair, on December 30, 1853 when she was 18 years old and he was 21, in St Joseph, Michigan.

By 1860, Amanda and William were living in Schoolcraft, Michigan and had become the parents of Clarence William, Arthur Sylvester and Mary Darling.

Amanda passed away on April 8, 1911 at the age of 75. Her headstone does not give her name but only addresses her as "Mother" and "Wife of W. S. Bair".

William would later be buried next to her when he passed away in 1915 at the age of 83.

Amanda, you could not have had an easy life as a small child after the deaths of your parents. I tried to find what happened to you, but I am just not sure until you married William. At least now your memorial carries your name. Everyone deserves thei...(Read more)
