About the Daniel Haston
Rescuing from oblivion the history and stories of our early Hastons
and related ancestors.
Daniel Haston was an American pioneer, born in northern Virginia and eventually settled in Middle Tennessee. He was a very simple man who had 13 or so children and dozens of grandchildren who scattered from Tennessee throughout the Mid-West and pretty much all over the Western USA.
This is an association of his descendants and other folks who are interested in Daniel and his extensive family.
Daniel was the son of SWISS-German 1727 immigrant Henrich Hiestand, a Mennonite who grew up as a Swiss exile in the village of Ibersheim in the Rhineland of Germany. Daniel’s original surname was Hiestand, but it morphed into many different spellings–Haston, Hastin, Hasten, Hasting, Hastings, Hastain, etc. Regardless of how our “H” names are spelled, we are all members of one big family.
And you certainly don’t have to carry one of those names to be a part The Daniel Haston Family Association. Anyone related to the family, directly or indirectly, is welcome to join in as we seek to research, preserve, and honor the history and heritage of the vast Daniel Haston family.
We would like to see the association grow, not only as a repository and disseminator of historical information, but also as group of committed family members who could assist with Haston-related projects. For example, one goal would be to raise funds to help with the upkeep of some key cemeteries where our ancestors are buried.
We will be making known some of the association’s financial needs along the–annual costs of our website as well as some opportunities to assist with some Haston heritage projects.
Don’t you hope someday someone will be here
to help your descendants remember you?
