Location of Barr Cemetery Road
If you haven't already located Barr Cem. Rd - Take Rte 22 east out of Blairsville - Barr Cem. Rd is off to the left just before Mt Tabor Church - dirt road. Twists back into the woods, stay right - cemetery on the right off the road just a bit.

I added family links to James' parents Susan and Samuel. In addition, I added some family bio information on James' memorial with the year James' father Samuel was born. I do not know when Samuel died. Also, I added the names of Samuel's parents. I do not know where his parents are buried. I do know that they are buried somewhere in Butler County where Samuel was born.

When I photograph grave markers and they are difficult to read, I do a rubbing using typing paper and a black crayon. Many old grave markers in eastern PA are made of brownstone. Brownstone degrades very quickly compared to marble or granite. Doing a rubbing usually does the trick.

Thanks for all of your help!

RE: James Fair Grave Photo
Yes, they are related. It would be very kind of you to add their grave photos. If they are not in findagave, would you be so kind as to add their memorials.

Your findagrave friend,

Thank you ever so much for photographing James' grave marker. The neat thing is that you added two photos.
I have made a quest to honor all my relatives who have served in the military. The Fairs have served in the military since the Revolutionary War up to and including Iraq and Afghanistan.

Your photographs are merely photos to some, to me they are a treasure.

Copious amounts of gratitude,

Jerry Fair
