Albert Hair-Emily McClain

I'm trying to find information about my Great Grandfather, Albert Hair. The earliest record I find him is on the 1870 Federal census living in Weston working as a farmhand on the farm of Ephraim and Elizabeth Arbigast. Albert married my GGM, Emily McClain in 1871 (per marriage record). My Grandmother, Mary Ellen Hair Cowdrey was one of several girls born in 1876. Emily McClain Hair died in 1884. Albert remarried Maggie Guyer in 1906. He died in 1914 while crossing a railway in 1914.

On all census records he lists his birth state and that of his parents as Kentucky. I can't find him before 1870, so I don't know when he moved to the area. His parents are listed as James and Julia (Blair) Hair in my GM's Bible. I'm beginning to think he made this all up....
