I have located my greatgrandfather Dr. Aaron Grant Fairfax in your Biographical Dictionary of American Physicians of African Ancestry. Heyward Fairfax was his son who was my grandfather, but Aaron Grant Fairfax, jr. and Lucille May Fairfax were his grandchildren. Heyward Fairfax was their father. In other words,
Dr. Aaron Grant Fairfax and Pearl (Banks) Fairfax were the parents of Heyward Fairfax.
Heyward Fairfax and Jennifer (Jackson) Fairfax were the parents of Aaron Grant Fairfax, jr. and Lucille May Fairfax.
Aaron Grant Fairfax, jr. and Ida Mae (Sessions) Fairfax are the parents of Cynthia Rose Fairfax, that is me, Sandra Ann (Balenger-Mcduff) Fairfax and Cecelia Wynette (Galimore) Fairfax.
Lucille May Fairfax also had children. Will write more later.
Thank You.
Cynthia R. Fairfax
P.S. My father's name is misspelled on my birth certificate. Instead of Aaron it is Aron.
