     Agnes Stewart died bet. 1891 - 1901 ?Jedburgh, ROX, SCT.5,6
     Agnes has been chosen to show in these pages because her husband's brother James Mabon also married a Fairbairn descendant, Isabella, the granddaughter of John & Alice (AINSLIE) FAIRBAIRN. This John, and Agnes' grandfather Walter FAIRBAIRN, were both born Swinton, Berwickshire around the same timeframes. Any relationship however is pure conjecture.7

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
