13th Generation Fairbanks in America (#48218542)

Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a proud member of the 13th generation of the Fairbanks family in America. Intrepid Puritan spirits Jonathan and Grace Fairbanks sailed to America from England in 1633. Jonathan had a timber house built in Dedham, Massachusetts which still stands today at over 370 years old (http://www.fairbankshouse.org/) and is listed by the National Park Service as an historic site. The house is the oldest timber frame building in North America. Jonathan and Grace began a family that eventually included U.S. Presidents (the Bush family), U.S. Vice Presidents (#26 Charles Warren Fairbanks), U.S. Senators and State Governors, and even a famous poetess (Emily Dickinson). Our line includes soldiers who fought for our country's freedom in the Revolutionary War (Bunker Hill and The Siege of Boston), the Civil War (Union), World War I, World War II (Normandy) and the Korean War (Chosin Reservoir).

Our family's genealogy was well documented by Lorenzo Sayles Fairbanks in "The Fairbanks Family In America" book, published posthumously in 1898. This publication helped immeasurably in our research. It is my hope that I can also assist people looking for their roots, as others have helped us.
