Al,

Great website. I would like to submit our link:

The Phair family of Osgoode Township

This site is for the PHAIR family who came to Osgoode Township 
around 1840, other surnames are listed as well. Feel free to post 
my email address as well.

The only reference at your site I have found was on the 1879 map. 
Do you have any other info on this family?

Regards,

Jamie Phair

Hi Jamie:
 
Thanks for the great link to your Phair family. 
I've come across the name while going through early material on Osgoode Township. 
I'm fairly certain that the Osgoode Township Historical Society in Vernon has 
information on the family in the 1800's.

When I was younger my family knew an Alvin Phair. He was very tall and I see some of the 
men on your web site are also tall.
 
The annual Metcalfe Fair was a big event. Whenever Alvin and Marcie came to visit us, 
usually by boat at my uncle's cottage, we kids would watch for their boat and say 
"Here come the Metcalfe Phairs". If this is your family, there are some wonderful 
stories from back then, in the 1950's, when the adults had more fun than we do now.
 
Thanks for the memories. I'll put a link from my site to yours and mention that you're 
having a reunion. 
(See the Phair genealogy site for details)
