About Ambrose Fairchild

1900 census:

Ambrose Fairchild spent the days of his boy- hood and youth under the parental roof, and in the public schools of the neighborhood acquired a good practical education, which was supple- mented by several months' study in the East- man Commercial College, Poughkeepsie, N. Y. He continued to aid in the cultivation of the home farm until twenty-six years of age, when he began operating one of his father's farms in Northumberland county, devoting his energies to that work for twelve years. He then purchased his present property in Gregg township.

On January 24, 1883, in Northumberland county, Mr. Fairchild was married to Miss Ada Dunkel, who was born in that county in 1862, a daughter of Hiram and Christina (Frederick) Dunkel, also natives of that county, where they still reside.
