June 11, 1806 – Willie B. Haston: Probably named for Willie Blount, whom David probably knew in Knoxville. Willie Blount later became Governor of Tennessee. Willie B. Haston lived on Cane Creek, near where Highway 30 crosses the creek. Later, moved to Texas.
December 25, 1808 – Daniel MC (McComisky) Haston: The McComisky name came from Peggy Roddy’s grandfather, Daniel McComisky of Baltimore County, MD. Married Anna Green, daughter of John and Rachel Mackey Green. Moved to MO in 1834. Married Martha Jane Wade after Anna died.
March 14, 1811 – Isham Bradley Haston: Named for Isham Bradley, the bondsman for David and Peggy’s marriage. Married Rebecca Steakley in 1834. He was one of the early Justices of the Peace in Van Buren County but moved to MO in the early-to-mid 1840s.

May 9, 1815 – David M.C. (Macklin or Machlin) Haston: Perhaps named for William Maclin IV, the first Secretary of State and Adjutant-General for Tennessee, under Governor John Sevier. David Haston would probably have known William Maclin IV, from his time in Knoxville (then the capital of Tennessee). David MC Haston married Permeely Creely. They moved to MO in about mid-1851.

March 2, 1829 – William Carroll Haston: Married Jane Denney, daughter of William Denney, Sr. W.C. Haston was a prominent civic leader in Van Buren County–Sheriff during the Civil War, Justice of the Peace, Chairman of the County Court, etc. Died in 1902 and buried in the family cemetery behind the original Daniel Haston place in Cummingsville. See his photo and the William Carroll Haston family cemetery below.
Only three of David and Peggy’s sons remained in Tennessee: James W. who died fairly early and Isaac T. and William Carroll. Most Hastons who grew up in White or Van Buren County are descendants of the one of these three – OR, Montgomery Greenville Haston who was a grandson of David and Peggy – very probably that illegitimate son born in 1824 of Mary “Polly” Haston – but more about that in a later article.
David and Peggy reared three other children, probably (or possibly) grandchildren – all of which eventually took the “Haston” name:
August 26, 1836 – Katherine Moore Haston
December 10, 1838 – Richmond T. Jones Haston
June 17, 1841 – Edward Cyrus Moore Haston
