FAIR's in or around Courtland

I am trying to locate any info on my dad's family, here is what I have:George Fair (my G-Grandad) married a woman named Harriett. They had at least 2 children: Howard John Fair and Nan Fair. Nan married some one with the last name Wiley. Don't know what happened to him. She owned and ran a boardinghouse and a home for the elderly in Cortland, NY, I believe it was locted on Main ST. Howard John Fair(my Grandad) married a woman named Clara Barrett. They had atleast 4 children: Jessie Fair, Howard Junior Fair, Harriett Fair(she married a Paul Galini)and George Clifford Fair(my dad). My dad was born in 1927, he is still alive and doing very well for some one who raised 6 kids. We know that my Uncle Howard & Aunt Jessie went to the "Cortland Children's Home and my Aunt Jessie ended up leaving there and living with the COLE family in Rome(?)NY. My Aunt Jessie now lives in Syracuse and Goes by the last name FULLER. My Aunt Harriett has been seen or heard of since 1949(?) We know that her husband died in 1976. My grandmother (Clara) ran off after my dad was born(he's the baby), we believe she died in 1970, in Catlin,Chemung CO. NY. After my grandad(Howard John) died the kid's were sererated and died find each other but, with their age they don't remember much or there stories conflict. I would like to know anything on their (MY) family, My parents moved to central Fl in 1972 and I was born in 1976, so, I don't know anything but, what I hear. My dad will be 75 on 11-26, and I was hoping to be able to tell him whatever I have found about his parents. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.
