Welcome to the family genealogy
BASTIAN in Pennsylvania 1750-1765. The first immigrants to America in my
line were the family of Christopher and Ann BASTIAN. They and their family immigrated from Germany in the mid-1700s
through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.
BOSTIAN in North Carolina 1765 - present. Between 1760-1770, three sons
of Christopher and Ann (Andreas, Jonas, and Mathias) and possibly another son, Christopher, Jr. removed to Rowan County,
North Carolina. Their land was primarily in the area now known as China Grove in Rowan County.
You can search for ancestors in the BOSTIAN surname database, which is a collection
of over 1090 individuals including COPE ~ FULLER ~ LEONARD ~ LENTZ ~ LINN ~ STIREWALT. You can also search by a specific person.
Take some time to check out the miscellaneous links page which has links to researchers, trivia and other resources.
