Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began a quest to find my 1988. When I began my quest, there were no documents that I could use to trace my ancestors. My parents were deceased as were most of my fathers siblings; the others were elderly and could not remember very much. My mother was adopted. The document that started me on my journey was my grandfather's social security application. It provided me with his place of birth, father's name and mother's maiden name.
In 2006 I found my great-great grandfather's grave. He is buried in the Birdsboro Cemetery aka St. Michael's Episcopal Cemetery in Birdsboro, Berks, PA. I made a promise to him that he and other Fairs would never be forgotten. Since that time, I have added many Fairs that were not listed in findagrave.
I am related to the Fairs in the following Pennsylvania counties: Armstrong, Allegheny, Beaver, Indiana, Bucks, Butler, Westmoreland, Mercer, Venango, Allegheny, Fayette, Lawrence, Montgomery, Clarion, Chester, Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks. Also the following states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado, California, Arizona, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Oklahoma. We are descendants of Johannes Fahr/ John Fair b.1730 in Germany, d.1808 Berks County PA. I would like to meet relatives from those aforementioned counties and states.

If anyone wishes a memorial transfer, just let me know. I will be more than happy to make the transfer. The exception being anyone with whom I am related. Please use the edit button on the top of the memorial to send me your request. I would be very interested in how you are related to the person in question. That information is optional of course. I will still make the transfer. Reuniting people with their loved ones means more to me than the quest to have the most memorials added.

Poor is the nation that has no heroes. Shameful is the nation that has heroes...and forgets them. You are not forgotten.

RE: Kelly Fair
Hi Jerry:

I was glad to help. I spent many hours walking Holy Cross Cemetery looking for Relatives and plotting the gps locations to make it easier for others to find their relatives' graves. Margaret Nash Fair was one that I was looking for and as luck would have it, it was one of the last areas that I looked at. Cyril, Betty, Kelly and Jesse were all side by side. Thanks to you I now know who Kelly was. Do you have any info on Jesse, born 1973, died 1976? Any other info about the Fairs would be appreciated. My email is If you send me an email I will reply with a link to the Nash family tree that I have put together. I don't want to put the link on this site.

St. Mary's R.C. Cemetery, Beaver Meadows
Hello. My name is Bob Whitenight. I am a retired fellow looking to make a few extra bucks and take cemetery pictures for $5.00 each. I see you need pictures from the St. Mary R.C. Cemetery in Beaver Meadows, and since I live in Hazleton, I thought I could be of service to you. You do not have to pay up front. I will go to the cemetery and take the pictures and post them on Find-A-Grave. After you see the pictures you can then send me the money. Let me know if you want me to do this. You can reach me at:

I was wondering what your relationship is to the Donovans in St. Matthew's Cemetery in Conshohocken, Pa. My maiden name is Donovan and some of my relatives are buried there also.
Thanks in advance
