354 Oliver was a natural gentleman, with the old country definition, fond of all kinds of sport and a good athlete especially in running and jumping. Like all the inhabitants of the British Isles, he was a great walker, an exercise which he kept up all his life. He could outrun almost any young man after he was seventy years old. In Ireland there is a fair held each week at every place of consequence. These fairs are held on different days at different places, giving an opportunity to those so disposed to be at a fair every day in the week. The fair is not an exhibition but a general market, with horse racing and other sports thrown in by way of variety. Oliver always had to go once a week to a fair, and sometimes found it necessary to go oftener. After the crops were gathered in the fall, all hands turned out to play golf or shinny. He was in great demand for this game, as he never could be caught when he once had the ball. The golf sticks were used freely, as the name implies, but he could dodge them by jumping. His quick and excitable nature sometimes brought him into difficulty, but he never got hurt. He was restless and roving in disposition and this coupled with a stomach difficulty which was a serious matter at times and always troublesome, made him devote more of his time in his early days to leisure than would seem consistent to a man in his financial circumstances with a large family.

Oliver was brought up by a rich aunt named McBennoir who lived in Bogue's Town, Parish Skerry. She brought him up in old folk's style to do as he pleased with the usual result, which was aggravated by his impetuous, excitable temperament. He had all the horses and etc. he wanted. He was smart and bright so he must needs be petted and spoiled. She and her family gave him the right to his holding in Bogue's Town and one hundred pounds in money. He immediately proceeded to run through the greater part of this. He never hated to put off work for a good chance to have some sport.

The O'Hara's had been in Ireland for many years. Two or three generations before, a Scotchman had married a certain Lady O'Hara and had taken his name. There was a general in the British army, Marmaduke O'Hara, a great?uncle of Oliver's. As the children grew up and found it necessary to add something to the family, they worked for rich families, Wiley's, Craig's and Irvings, which they would not have done according to the custom of that country unless they had been related. Only the very poorest classes would work for any one that would employ them. Oliver was also related to the Montgomery family, also rich.

He was a quick excitable person, with generous streaks at times when he would willingly give all he had to assist anyone in difficulty, but without any thought of the result to himself or family.

He was religious in a general way. Living as he did among the strict Presbyterians in his younger days, he had a great reverence for religion in all its forms, and even until he was seventy five he would put on his best, walk straight as an Indian and attend divine worship although he was obliged to walk nearly two miles to do this. Never said much on religious subjects.

He was five feet seven inches in height, very light, sandy haired, with red whiskers and blue eyes. He was very white. His hair curled and this was his delight. He flushed easily. She was dark with hazel eyes, would almost never flush.

He never cried and never showed signs of grief or pain. The only way any one ever knew him to be ill was by his paleness or inability to get about, he would never say he was sick. He had a tenacious memory and never forgot or really forgave an injury. To his friends he was devoted to a fault. He always stuttered more or less and this was most noticeable whenever his wrath was excited, which could be done quickly and easily. This would be accompanied by some incoherent low land Scotch, which was usually described by those that heard him as a yell, sometimes loud and furious. He never was able to talk in America without a strong suggestion of a brogue.

When they were first married they had a fine farm in Bogue's Town. This was in Town, Lough Conley, Parish Skerry - Country Antrim; Province of Ulster. Oliver O'Hara by signing with friends and poor management, lost considerable money and was obliged to move to a smaller and poorer farm.

364 Per the History of Barnet Vermont by Fredrick Wells

Robert and Margaret sailed for America a few days after their marriage and reached Barnet VT in August 1784, settling on the farm still owned by their great-great grandson, Joseph Blair, which has been in the family without change.

His name is on the call to Rev. David Goodwillie, July 5, 1790. In the census of that year he is given as having a wife and three children. In the earliest list of communicants to the Center Church are both their names.

DOD listed as May 21, 1821; Vital Statistics has DOD as Jan 21, 1821

365 Peter Blair was a weaver in Scotland, weaving Paisley shawls. When work became scarce, he came to America at the request of his uncle Robert who lived in Barnet Vermont.

After spending some time with his uncle in Vermont, he went to Lowell MA, where he continued his trade as a weaver for a time. There he met and married Elizabeth Rodger. Finally they came to Goshen Gore and settled on a place where there was a log house and about four acres of cleared land. That place was where the Cargills lived just above your home (Peter Blair & Etta Pratt).

Just below where you lived was a cousin of our Grandfather's (Andrew Blair who had come from Barnet on the place now owned by Sternburg).

On the ship that Peter came to America on was William Rodger who went to Greensboro. William told his mother (Agnes) and sister (Elizabeth) that when he got settled in America he would send for them. Tired of waiting for the word, they went to America to find William. When they got to Greensboro William had already moved to Lowell MA where Peter also was. Elizabeth and her mother followed William to Lowell and Peter and Elizabeth met. Elizabeth did not know Peter in Scotland but she has said that when she was waiting to see her brother leave on the ship, she remembers seeing Peter leaning against the ship eating a biscuit.
