Classification: Query
Surnames: Fairfax/Fizer/Bucklew
They had at least nine children, lived in Preston Co. area. Children were Baldwin, John A., Ella, William Scott, Jack Austin, Elmer J., Laura, Lula, and Elizabeth, the youngest. The mother, (Elizabeth's) parents were supposed to be James Baldwin Fairfax and Rebecca Bucklew. Can anyone out there verify this? I know that Rebecca Bucklew was also married to a John Whetsel. Elizabeth's b.d. 1857-d.d. is 1914. I have only ever seen 3 children listed for James Baldwin & Rebecca Bucklew. Married 10/5/1878, so how could they be Elizabeth's parents???? I even have a letter dated 1976 from one of the above siblings stating that Elizabeth's parents were Baldwin Fairfax and Rebecca Bucklew. Can anyone out there help with this mystery? Did Rebecca have her before either marriage? Or what? Oh, and Elizabeth went by Elizabeth B. Fairfax, but her first name was Abasha (Basha) Elizabeth in very early life. In all later census reports she went by Elizabeth. Any help will be much appreciated.
