[email protected]    All descendants near & far of Robert & Catherine (Watkins) Pair of the Emporia/Greensville, Virginia, area.  They had sons Garfield (1887-1940) & Elijah Pair, perhaps others.  Garfield married Ellen Ross, and had children John R. Pair (1912) and Virginia Pair Wright.  Elijah married Estelle Lee and had daughters Pearlie Mae, Rosa, and Catherine.  Possibly more children in these families.  Any information appreciated.
