That was it! #52 was just posted! Blogger, Amy Johnson Crow challenged bloggers to write about 52 Ancestors in 52 weeks and I took it a bit farther and wrote only about those related to my Hairston family. I wanted to prove (or disprove) that Hugh Brown Hairston was the father of my great-great-grandfather, John L. Hairston. I did not achieve the goal, but my Hairston research is very well organized. And, I certainly know much more about John L. Hairston, my great-grandfather, Phillip A. Hairston, his siblings, possible cousins, and the Hairston family in general.
However, I am not finished. I haven't even begun writing about John L. Hairston's daughter, Permelia Hairston Noah, and her family. There are more Hairston family members in Alabama and Arkansas that also need attention and several of my 52 ancestors need to be revisited.
I will continue to number the ancestors and add them to my family chart. It won't be "52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks" as that pace was much too difficult. Instead, you will see one or two new Hairston posts a month with the title "Beyond 52 Ancestors."
Thank you to Amy Johnson Crow for creating the challenge and to all of you who read and shared my posts!
