Nowhere is a daughter mentioned.

I will ask expert Jewish geneologist HaRav HaGaon Rabbi Aaron Spira and others in regards to this.
(I have not gotten a response from Jaim David Harlow who added Shoshana as a daughter.)

Rav Hai Gaon married the daughter of Gaon Sura Rav Shmuel Ben Hefni. He did not leave any children behind, and died seven years later, at the age of 99.
