Rita Osborne
Solomon Osborne and Rebecca
You did not leave me an email address to be able to contact you with. If you look at the census records along with the family bible records the surname is clearly Osborne. As you go back further the name does change based on where the family was living. From Osborne to Osburn to Osbourne

George Conrad Rice (#73133250)
Hi. I am sure this person is a Rice and not a Conrad. I know the stone is very well worn but you can make out the last name Rice a few lines below his name, with a little editing. I consulted with Mechburggrannie (Find A Grave Member #46925202), who had requested a transfer of Conrad Rice to see if they knew whether or not this was a child of Conrad & Mary Rice. This is what she told me:

I looked carefully at the stone photo. I see George Conrad, looks like son of, next line is ? and Eliza Rice, died might be 8 Oct 1861 not 1844, aged might be 7 years. From this photo and the info I found in the book "Ashes to ashes--Deaths from Indiana County Newspapers 1853 thru 1879" page 18, I conclude this is the grandson of Mary Polly Fair and Conrad Rice. He is the son of John Fair and Eliza Rice who lost 3 children to diphtheria in White twp in Oct 1861 and then moved to Clinton, Iowa where they had at least 3 more children. According to the book which reads "...RICE~7 Oct 1861, of diphtheria, in White tp., Cordilla, aged 9 years; on the 8th, George, aged 7 years; and on the 11th, Mary, aged 2 years, children of John & Eliza Rice. IR 10/22/61..." Several of the trees on Ancestry have picked up this info. I found them using my familytreemaker matching, rather than just Ancestry which only brought up a few. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Shirley in Dayton, OH

I hope this clears up the name in question. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Have a great day!

I'm sorry to say that Norman doesn't have a headstone. I found out his location and checked the lot location on the map in the cemetery office. I'm sorry to disappoint you.

Kenny Fair
About 5 years ago, I purchased a grave marker for my 2nd great-granduncle, Reuben D. Fair. As it turns out, Reuben is the 3rd great-grandfather of Kenny Fair. Strange, eh?

Your Tree
I do not recall getting the email. It could have gone to my junk mail account. I may have inadvertently deleted it. I never view any mail in the junk mail folder. Would you be so kind as to resend me the email?

If you would like to be a guest on my tree, just let me know.

Thanks Sheila!

Family Tree
I saw that you have gleaned some information from my tree already. I went to your tree, but I discovered it was listed as private. Oh well.

Take care,

Fair Reunion
I thought you might be interested in knowing that a Fair Family reunion will be taking place near Reading,PA on the 15th of September. Cousin Kenny Fair will be hosting the event. This will be the first annual Fair reunion. Kenny is a 5th cousin I contacted last year. Ancestry made it all possible. Kenny and I have since become good friends.

Kenny did not have any family information beyond his great-grandfather. I provided him with 4 more generations of his linage.

Cousins from all over PA, MD and FL will be attending the reunion.

Take Care,

Jerry Fair

John Mathias Fair
Hello Sheila! I just noticed that you have added flowers to John's memorial. John is my 4th cousin and your 4th great-grandfather. So, you and I are cousins. If you would like any information on the Fairs I would be more than happy to share my research. I have been researching the Fairs for 24 years.

Do you have a tree in ancestry? If you do, then you can check out my tree. If not, I can always add you as a guest.
