Samuel Robert Cairns

Found some interesting hits tonight on Samuel Robert Cairns (Lulu Cairns’s father), and his other daughter Mildred Cairns.  Apparently they all moved out to California, and Mildred married a man named William A. Goodfellow.  They had a daughter Mildred H. Goodfellow who was born in 1920.  Getting close to living relatives there.  Would love to find some living relatives of the Cairns clan and see if there are stories or photos there.  Samuel’s father Robert Cairns lived in Quebec his whole life, and Robert’s father Samuel came to the US from Ireland sometime before 1833.  Another story much like the McWhirters.  I spent a lot of time on the Cairns clan this week.  I love getting to the point where I have a feeling like I know them.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
