(daughter) HAIRSTON

Father*Peter HAIRSTON1 b. a 1695
Mother*Agnes "Irish Lady of Rank" (surname unknown)
(daughter) HAIRSTON was the daughter of Peter HAIRSTON and Agnes "Irish Lady of Rank" (surname unknown).1 
America*With family from Ireland. 
Virginia*Sometime around 1739, this daughter and family moved from Pennsylvania along the Great Wagon Road thru Wood's Gap (now Jarmin Gap) into Goochland County, Virginia. 
Marriage*(daughter) HAIRSTON married (surname unknown) PHILLIPS before 1782.1 
NOTE*Samuel Hairston's will of 1782 he mentions a nephew named Samuel Phillips and a niece named Jane Phillips. It is assumed Samuel never married, so he did not have nieces and nephews by a wife. Therefore, Jane and Samuel would have been children of his sister who married a Mr. Phillips. Why did Andrew and Robert not name Jane and Samuel in their wills? Andrew's will was written in 1771, possibly before Jane and Samuel were born. But he still did not mention a sister. Robert's will of 1790 did not mention a sister, niece or nephew.

While trying to locate more information regarding this Hairston daughter I found a possible lead. On the 28 Feb 1769, Bedford County, Virginia - Samuel Hairston, Robert Hairston, Hugh Hairston and Richard Phillips witnessed a deed between Thomas Morris and Robert Harper for 270 acres on branches of Beaver Creek. (page 250 Bedford County Deed Book C-3).2,1,3,4
