Will of Joseph Fair, Dec'd. Heirs: wife Nancy, son William Fair, son Elijah Fair, daughter Betsey, daughter Polly. Executor: son William Fair. Witnesses: Joseph Puett Junr. and Amstead Puett. Proven Jul 1818.

Additional comments from Roy V. Fair:

Joseph Fair Senior and Elizabeth Nancy Choate Fair had known children in order: Joseph Fair, Sherwood Fair, William Fair, Elizabeth Fair, Polly Fair, Elijah Fair and perhaps Tempy Fair. The family lived on Abingdon Fork of Lower Creek between Lenoir and Collettsville, NC.

Joseph Farr/Fair, (Jr.), oldest son of Joseph Fair, Sr. and likely mother Elizabeth Nancy Choate of 1800 Burke County, NC. The 1860 Caldwell County, NC census reflects his birth as 1777 in Chatham County, NC. He married Mary "Polly" Morgan on January 29, 1803 in Wilkes County, NC. They also named their first son Joseph (designated as III) which establishes a "Joseph" first name naming pattern.

There is also a further Choate family connection to this Farr/Fair family which goes back beyond 1750 in Lunenburg County, VA where we find a Joseph Farr (designated the Elder) living in proximity to the Christopher Choate family who had a daughter named Mary whom Joseph (Elder) likely married and had a son Joseph (Sr.) ca 1846. This family moved on to Granville County, NC ca 1754 (along with a Sabret Choate) and thence to Bute County, NC where Joseph (Elder) died in 1765. Mary Farr and son Joseph, closed out the Elder's estate and by 1777, a Joseph Farr (Sr.) had moved westward to Cumberland County, NC where he is reflected on the Tax List living in close proximity to the contiguous Chatham County, NC line where Joseph Farr/Fair was born in 1777. From there, we find Joseph (Sr.) in 1790 Moore County, NC before moving on to Burke County by 1800 where he died in 1818. His written will clearly spells the name FAIR though he could neither read nor write. Most future lines from this family emerged with the Fair surname. He may have had an earlier wife before Nancy Choate though there is no evidence found that supports this.

Regarding Joseph (III), there is substantial evidence he and brothers Sherwood and David migrated westward to Carter County, TN by 1850 where the surname became Fair and has propagated there. The fourth brother, Ambrose, moved to Haywood County, NC and is recorded as a Fair.

Joseph Fair and wife Nancy Choate first show up in the Burke census of 1800. They lived in the Lower Creek /Johns River area of today's Caldwell County, NC. Joseph may have had an earlier wife based on the age disparities reflected in that 1800 household. His first son was also Joseph who was born about 1777 in Chatham County, NC. He first shows up in the 1830 Burke census and died in 1860 in what is now Caldwell County. His second son was Sherwood/Sharred was born about 1787 and first appears in the 1820 Burke census but has moved on to Carter County, TN by 1830 and lost after that. His third child was William Fair/Farr who was born around 1795 in Burke and later moved to KY and then Morgan County, TN. His fourth child was Elizabeth Fair born about 1797 in Burke (more below). The fifth child was Elijah (B: 1800) who also shows up in the 1820 Burke census. The next was Polly, born about 1802 (limited info) and there is some evidence there was a possible daughter, Tempy (Furr), born about this same time (limited info). The final child was Archibald Fair, (MY G/G/GF) born about 1812

From Danny Davis' research located - http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/r/i/d/Danny-D-Riddle/index.html

"James served in the Chatham County Militia in 1772 in Capt. Charles Matthews Company along with his brother Thomas Riddle. In 1771 James and Temperance along with James' mother Elizabeth Riddle sold for 140 pounds land and a plantation lying in the fork of Cape Fear River in Chatham County. In 1774, February 17 James bought 200 acres of land in Cumberland County, NC for 45 pounds from Henry Gastor located on a branch of Little River called Bear Creek, this would now be in Lee County. NC Land Grants show that James was granted 100 acres on both sides of Little River in Moore County in 1784. In 1790 he was granted 127 acres on Bear Creek and 104 acres on the East side of Bear Creek. James and his family lived on the Old Pee Dee Road between Upper Little River and Big Juniper Creek. Moore County Court Minutes show James being appointed to the road crews" beginning at Yeows Path and from there towards Murro's Bridge" in 1784. Also in 1784 "from the fork to Conner Dowd's road" and 1787 "from Little River Ford to the fork of Sheppard Road." In 1789 James was appointed as one of twelve men to draw off and lay off a road from the courthouse to Braswell' Ferry and 1790 he worked on the road known as the Tomlinson from where it crosses the Chatham County line. Also in 1790 he was appointed overseer of the road laid out where the Anderson's and Tomlinson's roads fork that lead near said Riddle's to the line of Cumberland County. In 1791 he was overseer of the new road from Andersons Road to Big Pond. In May 1792 he recorded his mark to be a crop and slit in the right ear and in the left ear entirely whole. In his will he stated if either of his two sons become idle or disobedient to their mother lands on Governors Creek willed to them shall be disinherited. He must have been true to his word for 1790 census shows that he had three sons. James Jr. must have been disobedient to his mother and was disinherited. Sons William and John waited 29 years after their fathers death to inherit his land. There was a Grissy Riddle who was one of the witnesses to the will of Elizabeth Robeson dated November 25, 1800 and probated in August 1801. This Grissy and Elizabeth may have been daughters of James and Temperance Riddle."
