BMDB data

     Mary Fairbairn was born on 18 Jan 1830 Ladykirk, BEW, SCT, which year is derived from her baptism and the month from the Jan 1828 date given in the 1900 census. The year 1830 fits census data from 1850, 1860 and 1870, but after that Mary's age varies rather more from her baptism date.
Subsequently found extracted baptism entry giving exact birth date of 18th Jan 1830.2,4 She was baptized on 21 Feb 1830 Par. of Ladykirk, BEW, SCT.2 Some sources show Mary as born on 27 Jan 1828 SCT (presumed to be from family info, but seems a bit too far from her baptism.)5 Yet other sources show Mary as born cir. 1831 Cambden St Marys, Perth Co., ONT, CAN, but this must be a family guess given her baptism in Scotland the previous year.1
     Mary Fairbairn married Walter Lilly on 2 Apr 1846 Huron Co., ONT, CAN.6,7,8,3
     Mary Lilly was assumed to have died bet. 1900 - 1905 ?Deerfield, Waushara Co., WI, USA, as she is not obvious in the 1905 WI census and has pre-deceased her sister who died 1906.9,10
