The Book: The Story of the Daniel Haston Family

Scroll Down to Order a Copy or Copies of the Book

Remember the days of old;
    consider the generations long past.
Ask your father and he will tell you,
    your elders, and they will explain to you.
Deuteronomy 32:7 (NIV)

In this book, I want to tell a story—a historically true story about our Haston family roots in Europe, beginning near the end of the Middle Ages.  The story will continue as I describe some of the dreadful experiences they were forced to endure in Europe because of their evangelical Christian faith and how our immigrant ancestor (earliest-to-America ancestor) got to America.  But the most extensive part of the story will focus on how our American forefathers moved from Pennsylvania to Virginia, from Virginia to Tennessee and Kentucky, and from there, all across the United States.

  3. Kendrick Maynard was my 2nd Great Grandfather. I have never heard the story that he murdered anyone. I have only found where he was involved in a state Supreme Court case, but there was no information.
