If my great-great-grandfather, John L. Hairston and Samuel B. Hairston are found to be brothers and sons of Hugh Brown Hairston, then Sarah Jane Hairston McBurnett would have been first cousins to my great-grandfather, Phillip.
Samuel B. and his family members often lived so close to my Hairston family in Texas. I still wonder if some of my unknown photos are those of Hairston cousins.

Sarah was born on March 10, 1854. Four of five census records indicate that she was born in Georgia. Her parents were known to have lived in Troup County, Georgia in 1851 and 1867 so it is presumed that she was born in that county.
John, born about 1853, was a farmer in 1880, but later occupations included blacksmith and silversmith.
