off & allot Hannah Bastin, widow of Thomas Bastin,
deceased, her third of land containing 186 acres & including

were b. there as well.
Notes for Hannah Brockman:
Hannah's parents are believed to be William Brockman &
Elizabeth (Mason) Brockman, of Albemarle County, VA. No
definitive proof has been found yet, but this does fit the

Notes for Thomas Bastin , Jr.:
According to my grandfather, James Cordis
Bastin, & his first cousin, Garnett L.
Bastin, Sr. (both of Hiseville, Barren County,
KY), Thomas Bastin, Jr. came over the
mountains from NC to KY with his brother. The
brother later moved to IL or IN. (1971). - GLB
This brother of Thomas Bastin, Jr., appears to be John Bastin. He
is listed in the 1840 east Barren County, KY census
with Thomas Bastin, Jr. It appears that he moved
to Morgan County, IN in the early 1840's, & that
he raised a second family there. (July 1997)
According to Othella Lile of Hardyville, KY
(Sept. 1993), the Bastins, Nunns, Atwells &
Jewells came into Ky from NC in the early 1800s
by wagons. They were on their way to MO but
the weather turned bad so they ended up staying
in KY Some of the Bastins did go on to MO.
According to Irene McGlasson of Horse Cave,
KY (March 1994), some of the Atwell, Bastin,
Jewell, & Nunns all came to KY together in
covered wagons in a wagon-train around 1809 or
1810. John Atwell bought land in Green Co, KY
in 1811. The Atwells were from MD - came
through VA & NC to KY. The Bastins were
from NC; The Jewells were from VA or NC.
According to Janet Cochran, Hustonville Road,
Stanford, KY (24 May 1987), Thomas Bastin, Jr.
was living in Pulaski Co, KY in 1828. I think
this was the other Thomas Bastin, Jr.
A Thomas Bastin of KY was a Private in the War
of 1812. He served under the Roll of Captain
James McNeils Company, 2nd Regiment, KY.
This Thomas Bastin is not the same as our
Thomas Bastin, Jr. since he had not migrated
from Caswell Co, NC this early.
According to Wanda L. Braner, Thomas bought
land in Caswell Co in 1817 & 1818. The 1809
Caswell County, NC Tax List shows Thomas Jr.
there, also. In 1810, the Caswell Co Index of Census
Records shows Thomas Jr still there.
Caswell Co Record of Deeds, Book T, page 321,
dtd. 13 Dec 1818, shows Thomas Jr. buying 73
acres of land from his sister Anna Bastin & John
Newell. This is from a letter from Wanda L. Braner to
Glenda Bastin, dtd. 5 Mar 1995.- GLB, 26 Dec 1996
