Parents: James McMillon and D. E. Black

Birth date: November 1878
Birth place: Calhoun County, West Virginia.3,4,2

The inconsistencies of the spelling of the mother's name are interesting: the births of several children to Silas and Bathsheba Fairbee appear on a single birth register index page, yet the spelling of Bathsheba's name vary widely for each child:
     Bercheba Fairbee
     Sheba Fairbee
     Shibby McMellan
     Shiby McMillan
     Bathsheba Fairbee (orig. said Charlotte but was lined out)
     Bathasheba Fairbee
     Bethsheba Fairbee
It seems likely that the "Charlotte" error stemmed from the name of Silas' mother being Charlotte per the 1910 Federal census.4,1

Bathsheba married Silas Fairbee on 6 October 1896 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.3

Bathsheba died in 1962.2 Bathsheba's body was interred in the Drakesburg Cemetery, Drakesburg, Portage County, Ohio.2
