Researching these "possible distantly related ancestors" has helped me determine where to look for more documentation and has given me an opportunity to collaborate with others researching this Hairston family.
Ezekiel P. Hairston, another said to be son of John Hairston and Ann Robertson, is #33 of my 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge. Ezekiel, sometimes seen as Peter, was born about 1794 in South Carolina.
Ezekiel and his wife, Jane, died in March of 1870 in Burnet County, Texas. They are said to be buried in unmarked graves on their land at Hairston Creek.
