|Mother||Elspeth Wood1 (circa 1767 - 1833)|
BDMsEuphemia Fairbairn was born circa 1791 Fogo, BEW, SCT, from 1851 census (living with sister and her husband.)2
Euphemia Fairbairn was born circa Dec 1794 Fogo, BEW, SCT, estimated from baptism, and within range for a "45" year old Euphemia in 1841 given the rounding of ages in that census.3 She was baptized on 21 Dec 1794 Fogo, BEW; which would appear to be a late baptism, OR the headstone age at death is inaccurate.
Entry reads: Elspeth Daughter to Thos Fairbairn ditcher in Fogo was Baptized. George Blair Indweller in Fogo and Patrick Blair Schoolmaster there Witnesses.3,4 Some sources show Euphemia as born circa 1787 according to headstone, which I'm assuming has overstated her age.1,4
