Also the above ANDREW FAIRBAIRN who died at Tod ?? 15th April 1899 aged 85 years.

FWIW, I believe that the informant, a grandson, got Andrew's father's name wrong on his death cert. I believe that "Andrew" father of the Andrew marr. to Jane DOUGLAS, is actually "George", with son Andrew being the one born 12 Aug 1815 at Chesterhall, Par. of Earlston, baptised 23 Oct. Dearly love to find a direct male line descendant for the FAIRBAIRN surname dna project to see where George married to Jane LAW 1796 (Melrose and Nenthorn) fits into the overall FAIRBAIRN jigsaw.
