After his father James VAIR's death in Scotland in 1855, William's mother emigrated to Ontario with seven of her nine children. William VAIR remained in Scotland until 1867. Like his father, William was an estate gardener in Scotland, and brought that skill to Vespra Township where he founded a greenhouse nursery business in 1868.
After Jessie Bell VAIR died, William VAIR married Mary Henrietta CAMPBELL. Two children were born, a daughter who died in infancy, and a son Alexander Campbell VAIR, who moved to New York State.
William VAIR was my grgrgrandfather.
