Birth: Jul. 29, 1889
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 16, 1953
Saint Joseph
Berrien County
Michigan, USA

Wife of Sylvester Woods. Daughter of Thomas J. and Sarah (Landers) Fair.

Mother of James, Lenore and Alta Woods.

"Her death certificate is wrong, she is a daughter of Thomas J Fair & 1st wife Emma Alsop, Thomas married Sarah Ella Landers 6 Apr 1893. Hester's marriage record has Thomas J Fair & Emma Alsop, her mother died the 14,July,1892. The 1900 census I do not know why Sarah, her stepmother states married in 1887 when the marriage record is in 1893 & stating she had 4 children when she did not, she had an infant died in 1901 & Frederick b. Sept.1894, it could be possible there were 2 more children that also died in infancy. All I can say is Hester probably considered Sarah her mother since she was raised by her, after all she was only 3 when her mother died. Thomas J & Emma (Alsop) Fair had 3 children, William H.,Hester & an infant who died at 23 days in 1892." Thanks!
