|According to this document, in 1830, Hugh Brown Hairston either found or lost a cow in Butts County, Georgia.|
My reason for this challenge, 52 Ancesters in 52 weeks, is to organize and share my Hairston research as well as to look for connections between the Hugh Brown Hairston family and my great-great-grandfather, John L. Hairston. So, stay tuned for more Hairston family posts. I would love to hear from other Hairston descendants!
