I am the granddaughter of John Henry Gair, who owned the Gair ranch near Kiowa, Co during the earlier part of the last century.
We just had our annual family picnic which is at a family cemetery near the old ranch. Gair, Woodards, and Rinkers are all buried in the cemetery. I don't know much about the Rinker connections, I know that two Gair brothers married 2 Rinker sisters. I can help get information for you from family members, if your still interested after all this time.

Hi! Sorry, but I didn't see this response until just now. I've been to the cemetery. Not ALL the Rinkers are burried there, yet. I made it to a couple of the re-unions, the last one just before my dad died. I was by teh cemetery about two years ago, to show my wife where it was, and to do some clean-up. Did Robby ever start a fund to expand the fence?

Kenny Gair put in a new expanded fence. I think he did it all on his own
