Hairston Cemetery

Lowndes County, Mississippi

Located about 5 miles east of Crawford and north of Whispering Pines Road in Lowndes County, Mississippi.  In Hardin Hairston's will dated 29 September 1862, he states - "To J.T.W. Hairston I give the land described as the E. ½ of Sec. 29 S.E. ¼ Sec. 20., all of Sec. 21, W. ½ N.W. ¼ + S.W. of Sec. 22, all of Sec. 28. T. 17. R 17. E. in Lowndes County, Miss. – (except one acre, the grave yard, which I give all my heirs as a cemetery)".  This one acre was several hundred yards east of the plantation home.

The cemetery was restored about 1986 by Mr. Nick Hairston.  It has been maintained by Nick Hairston and Jeff Hairston since.
