I noticed you have an entry on the following page for Thomas Faire and family. I am interested in finding out more about them and their life in Northern New York. I would love to get access to the source of your information. Much of what is listed I have also found but there are some discrepancies I'd like to resolve.

Here is what is on your entry:

He (Orlando Osborn) married on 23 Dec. 1858 to ELIZA FAIRE, who was born in Clayton, Jefferson Co. on 3 Sept. 1836, daughter of THOMAS AND MARGARET (BEARON) FAIRE. Her father was born in Dublin, Ireland and owned land in Dublin. He came to Canada in the British army and when his term of service expire, he settled in Clayton and was a farmer and also worked in the Ashery. MARGARET BEARON was a native of France and came with her father's family and settled in Montreal, Canada. Thomas Faire died 13 April 1890 and Margaret in 1891.
