Father*John Adams HAIRSTON1 b. 15 Mar 1799, d. 7 Sep 1849
Mother*Malinda CORN1 b. a 1814, d. a 1882
NOTE*



Capt. Marshall Hairston’s Confederate Uniform is on display at the Carter House Museum in Franklin, Tennessee. Part of the Battle of Franklin Trust, the Carter House is about a mile from the Carnton Plantation. Capt. Marshall Hairston’s sister, Susan America Hairston, was Capt. Roland Ward’s first wife.

Capt. Roland Ward Jones spent over a year recuperating in The Carnton Plantation after the Battle of Franklin in 1864. The Battle of Franklin Trust maintains the house and grounds where the battle took place and they offer tours that are fascinating. They also have letters written by Capt. Ward to his second wife Lizzie.

If you are in the Nashville, Tenn. area, I highly recommend spending some time at the Carnton Plantation and the Carter House.
