Born in a log cabin near Unionville Center, Ohio, Fairbanks' ancestry traced back to Oliver Cromwell, with Jonathan Fayerbankes the first family member to reach America in 1636. The son of a wagon-maker, Fairbanks' formative years saw his family's home used as a hiding place for runaway slaves. After attending country schools and working on a farm, Fairbanks left for Ohio Wesleyan University, where he graduated in 1872.
