Vicki Johnston A short obituary in the Nov.1922 issue of the Sante Fe Magazine reads as follows:
The tragic death of Claud Franklin Fairchild one morning while on duty on Sept. 29, 1922. It is assumed he slipped and fell under the wheels of a train severing both legs. He was taken to German Deacons Hospital. He peacefully passed away the following evening. Mr. Fairchild entered the service of the Sante Fe on July 25, 1913. He was a member of the Masonic Order, the Elks, Order of the Railroad Conductors, and a social member of the B.R.T. Burial will be at Paw Paw, Michigan. Albert "Budgie" Howatt heard the cry of distress and was the first there to help with vauable first aid.

Roxane Fairchild-Perry My Father Archie Fairchild was the son of John Henry & Vina (Horner) Fairchild. He was one of 9 child. I believe he was the 7th born. He was born in Kentucky & Died in California a year ago March, in 2005. I have family still in Kentucky & Ohio area that I have met. My Aunt Virginia always would tell me about a cousin I have Named Karen, (who I never met) that could be my twin. Every time I saw my Aunt she would show me pictures of her. I imagine she would tell Karen the same thing about me & show her pictures of me (if she had any) I heard so much about this cousin of mine. I am submitting this story in hopes that maybe she might visit this site & read this story, & maybe I would have a chance to actually meet her.
thanks for submitting my story, I will definitely visit this site again, & leave other stories about my family the Fairchilds. thank you --Roxane

Roxane Fairchild-Perry Hi again, This is my second time here on this site, so I thought I would leave a few words & thoughts. My Father Archie Fairchild was born in Kentucky, his mother is Vina Horner Fairchild, & his Father is John Henry Fairchild. I never met his dad, & I only met his mother once. When my father was about 16 he dropped out of school to go to work to support the family after his father left his mother. He was the oldest at home, he had a younger brother & sister, & also a baby newphew along with his mother. He got a job in a machine shop. Thats how my dad got his trade as a machinest. The person who hired him got tired of being bugged about a job, so he hired my dad. During the war my father was a photographer, he was aboard the Queen Mary at one point. After the war my Father met my mom Joyce Volz, she had an art studio below my dad's photography studio. They were married until death. I miss them so greatly.
I have been researching the Fairchilds for some time & I can never find any info. on John Henry Fairchild or Vina Horner. Maybe one day someone will read this boring story I told & have something about either of them, they could share with me. That would great....
Roxane
