Hi Mary! Welcome to our list!

Just before you joined our list, there was on lead on this portion of
the BASTIN family that appeared. It is attached at the end of this message.

As far I know, Thomas's father has not been identified to date, although
Kandy Smith may have more information.

There is a Stephen Bastin listed on the 1820 Tennessee US Census for
Lincoln County, TN (pg. 6 of census). I do not know how or if he is
related to your Thomas.

There was also a Thomas Bastin who was married to Judith Hodge who moved
to Tennesee from Pulaski Co, KY. Here is the information I have on this
branch of the family in TN; I doubt that any of this pertains to your
Thomas and Nancy Bastin, though.

Greetings All!

I recently found another BASTIN researcher:

Subject: RSL: New Ba-Bl Surnames, July 1997 Update
From: Roots Surname List <>
Date: 1997/07/09

I wrote Kandy, since I knew of one Bastin and Black marriage
in Pulaski Co, KY, and received the following information.

Subject: Re: Bastin Family Discussion List

... I am Janel Woodbury. You e-mailed Kandy Smith at my e-mail address. I
posted the surnames for her, as she does not have an e-mail address.
Her ancestor was Middie Ann Bastin born 1878 in Perry Co., TN. Parents
Horatio Bastin and Cornelia Sisco. Horatio born 21 Sep 1856 in TN or NC.
Horatio's parents were Thomas Bastin and Nancy Johnston. Thomas was born
about 1811 in NC.

Her Black line seems to be unrelated to her Bastins. However, Agnes Black
who married Horatio Burns was born 1799 in VA, and she married 2 Jul 1810
in Pulaski Co., KY. Her parents were John and Jain Black. John died in
1830-Pulaski County. ..."

[So, there is yet another Thomas Bastin from NC that has popped up! I am
aware of a Thomas and Judith Bastin who supposedly moved to TN from
Pulaski Co, KY; they had a son named Thomas b. 1838 (spouse unknown), but
this doesn't seem to be the same family group. (Does anyone have any
information on siblings to Frances Jane Bastin, b. 1833, d. 5 Jul 1913?)]

Does anyone have any information on this group of TN/NC BASTINs and how
they fit into the family? I suspect that they may be related to the
Charles Bastin and Judith Bastin that individually show up on the state
census for Caswell County, NC that pre-dates the 1790 US Census. I have
never been able to find any trace of them, or their descendants. They
disappear without a trace on the later census records. Alternatively, I
do have a couple of Thomas Bastins in my database that don't have a spouse
identified. It is possible that this is one of them!

Any leads? (Kandy is not on our list; I will forward any information
that turns up to her snail mail address.)
