FAIRBANKS Alice Surnames: Atcherson, Billings, Dittburner, Fairbanks From the Adams County Press, February 11, 1911, Page 4 The death occurred last Thursday at Plainville of Mrs. Fairbanks. Mrs. Fairbanks had been taking care of her mother, who died a week previous to her own death, and it is thought that the blow was too much to stand, she gradually grew weaker, and after much suffering slept away. Alice B. Fairbanks was born August 27, 1861, in Rutland, Vermont, and was the daughter of Edwin and Margaret Billings, who moved to Wisconsin in 1863. Deceased has lived here ever since. On the 27th of July 1883, she was married to R. D. Fairbanks, of Quincy. To this union four children were born, two dying in infancy. Mourning their loss, is a husband, R. D. Fairbanks, a daughter Myrtice, a son Arthur, a twin-sister, Mrs. Abbie B. Atcherson of Plainville, and a half-sister, Mrs. Hattie Dittburner of Quincy. Mrs. Fairbanks joined the church in Quincy many years ago, and her trust and stay was in her Savior with whom she has now gone to dwell. She was a devoted mother and wife, a loving friend, and many will miss her. Services were held at the home of her sister in Plainville, Rev. Deans officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Olin cemetery. FAIRBANKS, John B, d. 1883 John B. Fairbanks Surname: Fairbanks Source: Adams County Press, Saturday Dec 8, 1883, Page 5 Column 2 DIED--Fairbanks--In White Creek, November 25th, 1883, John B. Fairbanks, aged 36 years. He was a successful physician in La Crosse for a number of years. His sympathy for his patients, and his numerous calls, prostrated his health, and for several years he was a severe sufferer. But these years of affliction were seasons of grace and preparation for that land where the inhabitants never say I am sick.This bereavement falls heavily upon his youthful companion and an only son. Only one brief year has elapsed since the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fairbanks, of Easton, had buried a younger son, Dr. Enoch L., aged 29. May divine grace bind up the broken hearts and comfort those that mourn. FALLOS, Rubye M.
