My great-grandfather, Phillip A. Hairston was born in Hinds County, Mississippi in 1852. His father was John L. Hairston, born in South Carolina, and his mother, Eliza, thought to be born in Georgia. Eliza's maiden name is unknown and a marriage date and place for John and Eliza cannot be found.
Eliza is first found on the 1850 census. Her age was 30 years old, her birthplace was recorded as Georgia, and it was reported that she did not read or write.
In 1860, Eliza was seen as E. Huston and her age was reported as 39, giving her a birth year of 1820 or 1821.
