52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: #10 Adeline Hairston - Another Missing Person

#10 Adeline Hairston
No Story Too Small
Add another missing person to the Hairston family tree. Adeline Hairston, born about 1849 in Mississippi was the 5th child of John L. and Eliza Hairston. Adeline can be found with her family at one year of age on the 1850 census of Hinds County, Mississippi and again in 1860 at age 11.  

1850

Searching records, online and in print, give no clues as to what may have happened to Adeline after 1860. 

I cannot find the Hairston family in 1870 and Adeline was not found with the Hairston family in 1880. 

1860


Unlike her brother, William, I am not going to assume that Adeline Hairston died after age 11. She could have married and become easily invisible to Hairston researchers. I will continue to look for Adeline and for Hairston family members, if you have any clues, please share!
