In your query you didn't state the relationship between the three Hairstons. I figured from date of birth Susan was probably the mother, but she's only the mother of John, Annie is John's wife. I learned this from going to the 1880 census. You said they were there, just didn't give any of the information from that census record.

1880 census Burleson Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

John P. HAIRSTON Self M Male W 28 AL Farm Work AL GA
Annie HAIRSTON Wife M Female W 27 GA Keeps House SC VA
Thomas HAIRSTON Son S Male W 6 AL AL GA
Susan P. HAIRSTON Dau S Female W 3 TX AL GA
Nannie E. HAIRSTON Dau S Female W 1 TX AL GA
Jessee HAIRSTON Brother S Male W 23 AL Farmer AL GA
Millard HAIRSTON Brother S Male W 21 AL Farmer AL GA
David HAIRSTON Brother S Male W 19 AL Farmer AL GA
James HAIRSTON Brother S Male W 16 AL Farmer AL GA
Susan HAIRSTON Mother W Female W 53 GA Home GA GA

On Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I took the less common name of one of the family members and typed in Hairston, Millard. There are some matches. I looked at the one with full location of his birth. She has given name of Millard's father and the maiden name of his mother, Susan. You might contact the submitter find out her sources of information and share what you know. Maybe you can help each other. I tried tracking some of the family on later censuses and could only find Millard once, and Jessee twice.

I suggest you copy and paste the above information from the 1880 census and post your query on the Texas GenForum. There are researchers who browse that forum with access to Ancestry.com and other sources. Someone might be able to help you.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
