|Bio and Links|
I began a quest to find my roots.in 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 diectly 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.

|Bobby Davis||RE: Stitzer Family|
I am referring to Gideon Reider and wife Elizeth Stitzer. Elizabeth is my 3rd great grandmother.
|Bobby Davis||Stitzer Family|
I've noticed some Stitzer names in Berks Co PA and you've added photos, links and such. I was wondering by chance if you were related to the Stitzers and how so?

Hi, Jerry - I saw your listing for Joseph Elwood Fair on findagrave.com. I am also related to this branch of the Fair family. His father, Harry E. Fair, is the older brother of my grandfather, Ira G. Fair. My branch of the family, starting with Ira, moved to E. Liverpool Ohio around 1905. I have done a lot of research on my family tree: My father is Joseph W. Fair, Grandfather is Ira G. Fair, Gr. Grandfather is Joseph M. Fair, GG Grandfather is James Fair, GGG Grandfather is John Fair, Jr., and his father is John Fair, Sr. All of them were from the Butler area until my grandfather left for Ohio. Is this the branch of the family that you are from? I have a lot of documented dates if you are looking for anything from this branch.
|Gina Reardon-Gaddis||RE: Hoffman Memorials|
You are very welcome and Thank You for the kind words. If there are any others, please let me know...I believe family belongs with family no matter the distance.

Made the addition and then some. I had 1915 instead of 1918 for birth year, and I added all the dates base on ss death index.
You made me go back to my original photos and it appears I haven't added a ton of tombstones to Goodwill. I had one of ethel pre-death with a blank death year.
If you want ownership, let me know.
