(WebMaster NOTE) The following list was graciously donated by a very special lady who does part time lookups for a living. It represents many years and countless hours of diligent and persistent tedious research at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. We respectfully request that you do not ask her to do additional research for you for individuals not on this list (unless you're willing to pay her for it), however, if you find the connections you are looking for in the following list, by all means, express your appreciation. Special thanks also to John Matrow and others for their research.

As time goes on, I will include family lines of Barnabus from those of you who already have sent your information. Anyone wishing to contribute to this list by filling in the blanks please contact Cathy Fair Clarine or me. Please note Cathy's corrected email address that I had wrong up until March 17, 2001.

From the notes of Cathy Fair Clarine "Catherine E. Clarine"  :
Barnabus FEHR arrived Sep. 19, 1749 on the ship Patience to Philadelphia, Pa. from Cowes, England and his original name was Johann Bernhard Fehr. He bought 25 acres of land on Oct. 2, 1752 according to information from the book "Pennsylvania German Pioneers" pg 407 and 408. This land is also referenced in "Pennsylvania Archives" Series 3 Vol 26 Pg 269. Barnabus is also mentioned in the book "Moravians in North America" Vol 2 pg 798.

A copy of his will was obtained via the "Abstract of North Carolina Wills" dated 1787. In his will he stated "I, Barnabus Fair ...", but signed his will "Johann Bernhard Fehr", showing they are one in the same person.

His second wife, Elizabeth Waggoner, is the widow of Phillip Waggoner.. Phillip's daughter Catherine Waggoner married Barnabus Fair's son, Barnabus Fair II.

I hope this helps some of you find your FAIR connection.

  The following is from "Kenneth Fair" .

I'm directly decended from Johan Bernhard Fehr, who I call "JBF". I have the record of him arriving on the Patience in 1749, as well as a record of the baptism of his son Hans Michel Fehr in 1755 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Reading, Pa. "Berend and Dorothea" are listed as the parents, and "Berend" is a nickname for Bernhard. They are listed as living in Windsor township. My research has JBF living in North Carolina at his death in 1787.

I've been spending most of my time searching for Johan's home in Europe, with no result so far. I have some Catholic Church records from Külsheim, Baden that have a christening record of "Bernabus Fehr" Dec 22, 1734. I've found his father - Paul (b 1680) and Grandfather - Valentine in the same record. Its a real shame that I have no idea whether it is the right Bernabus or not.

I've got some more records on the way from 18th century Rheinland - Pfalz and Wurttemburg. I'll look there for any "Fairs." One interesting thing I have found in the Külsheim records - Paul had several children, and his name and those of his offspring have different spellings, even in Germany! I've seen Fehr, Fähr, and Föhr. Daugthers sometimes have an -in added to the family name, such as Fehrin.

My line is;
Johan Bernard Fehr
Barnabas Fair/Farr --- b. 1758, 80 miles from Philadelphia
---------------------- (from his Rev war pension application),
---------------------- d. Tuscaloosa County, Alabama 1836

1850 Alabama Census, Pickens Co.

Barnabas III is listed as 48 years old, Nancy as 43, and both born in SCar.

They are listed as "Farr" rather than Fair. Their children are listed as

Mary (17), S?? (15), Benjamin(12), Susanah(10), Josiah(7), Ruth(4), and Almida(2).

  http://members.aol.com/GenWebLisa/pickns55.htm:
1855 Pickens County, Alabama State Census

key=abcd; a=males under 21, b=males over 21, c=females under 21, d=females over 21.

FAIR, Barnabus 3143

This is consistent with Barnabas III moving to Pickens County, having 1 more son,
and not having any of his other children pass away or move out.
Barnabas III is also listed in the 1830 Alabama Census. the household has 3 adults ( 1 male aged 20-30, 1 female aged 20-30 and 1 female aged 40-50) and 3 children (1 male below 5, 1 male 5-10, and 1 female below 5). No 70 year old man listed, and Barnabas II did not have his own listing as head of a household. The oldest female might have been the Mother-in-law.

Barnabas II is listed in the 1790 and 1810 SCar Censuses, in the Ninety-Six District, Pendleton Co.

CORRECTED 10-30-01)

My name is Mildred Joan Morris Butler. I am a direct decendent of Johan Bernhard FEHR. I have been researching along with my 2nd cousin John Matrow III for about 1 1/2 years on this family. I am very proud of the information we have found and so glad to know other relatives are researching. It is so nice to share. I visited Betty in Gordo, Pickens Co. AL last year and we went to all the cemeteries in the area where I took photos of all the Fair tombstones.

I am trying to make my bloodline connections for DAR. I need more census records, since birth, marriage and death certificates are nonexistent or hard to find. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My descendancy:
Barnabas FAIR (II) & Catherine WAGGONER (WAGONER)
Barnabas FAIR (III) & Nancy DUCKWORTH - - (CORRECTED 10-30-01)
Almeda Cole FAIR & William Hansel JONES
Lulu Mae JONES & James Franklin MORRIS
Arthur Claude MORRIS & Bewris Marie WILKINSON
Mildred Joan MORRIS & Cecil Glen BUTLER

My ancestors are the same as John Matrow's. His grandmother was my fathers sister.

Sincerely,
Joan Butler Joan371@aol.com

The Montgomery County Arkansas website has recently set up a webpage with some information about the descendents of Rev. Adam Fair who settled in Arkansas. Our webmaster Olwyn has done a beautiful job putting the Montgomery County FAIR information on a dedicated webpage. I have contributed a marriage and birth regristry page out of Effie May Fair's family bible. I have several documents and letters with her name spelled as Effie May Fair not Essie May as your site has it noted. Could you please change the spelling and add the additional information about her descendents. All of the documentation is noted on the information I furnished the Fair website for Montgomery Co. Arkansas. I am also sending the page from the family bible in jpg format. I have also posted the page on the Fair page under the Montgomery County GenWeb site. Thank you for the wonderful information you have posted on the Fair Genealogy Website. Please drop by for a visit on the ARK site.
