Birth: Dec. 15, 1876
Death: Apr. 24, 1922

A son of Maj. J.T.W. and Bettie Hairston. He was never married.

An article of interest from the Henry Bulletin on Oct. 1, 1915:

"The Badger-Dog Fight was pulled off Wednesday before an audience of about 1,500 men and boys, many of them seeking the rafters and hogshead tops for shelter as the terrible battle was in progress. A band from Danville furnished the music. Mr. W.H. Hairston's famous bulldog was the winner. The badger skin was hung in the window of Childress Bros. Store, which convinced the gentleman representing the ministry and the law that it was a real badger and a real bull dog that no hoax was put up here. Some who had hoped for a more bloody contest regretted the quick ending of the fight."
