Greetings BASTIN researchers!

This latest cemetary information adds much to our tracing of the branch of
our BASTIN family that migrated from North Carolina to Kentucky and then to
Tennessee, all of whom are either descendants, or spouses of descendants, of
Thomas and Hannah (Brockman) Bastin of Caswell County, NC, descended from
their son, William B. Bastin. (Thanks, Cheryl!)

I am still piecing together all the pieces of this branch of our family (see
descendant info below.) I am especially confused as to the numerous spousal
relationships with the HINSON and SISCO families, many of whom married
BASTINs and nearly all of whom are buried in Lewis County, TN. I have lots
of loose ends in my offline database, as I attempt to find all the family
connections. If you can fill in any of the missing names and identify
family relations (identity of sons, daughters), please post back to our
list!
