NOTE*NOTE: There are questions as to whether Sarah "Sally" Hairston was the daughter of Capt. Robert Hairston, since she was not mentioned in Robert's will or in the bibles lisitng Robert's children.

However, in the book "History of Henry County, Virginia" by Judith Hill, she says that the daughters Elizabeth and Martha were taken to their grandparents, Robert and Ruth Hairston, after the death of Sarah Hairston Baldwin. When Robert Hairston died (Elizabeth was 6 and Martha was 5), they were taken to Samuel and Judith Hairston until adulthood. If this is correct, then Sarah Rowland died before 26 May 1790.2
