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.
