Notes for William Bost: Probate: JAN 1823 Lincoln Co.,NC Will: 29 APR 1811 Lincoln Co.,NC From "The Heritage of Catawba County, North Carolina, 1986", Item #79, page 69: by Mrs Gwen Bost Sherril, an eighth generation Bost who descends through William's son Elias. Posted on GenForum by Carroll Creitz, December 22, 1998.) William Bost (Geman - Johannes Wilhelm Bast) was one of the pre-Revolutionary pioneer settlers in Catawba County. The name BAST was Anglicized to Bost in North Carolina. All who are related to this family are descendants of Johannes Bast. who was the early settler in North Carolina by the name of Bast or Bost. William, the oldest son of Johannes and his sister Anna Marie were confirmed October ?8, 1753, in Williams Township Congregation (Lutheran) Church, now St. Lukeıs in Northampton County, Pennsylvania. It is also recorded there that he took communion late in the summer of 1754. The name of Williamıs mother is unknown but his father married a second time to Susanna Catherine before 1740. The Bost family moved to North Carolina in 1754 and settled in a community of Germans near St. Johnıs Lutheran Church in what is now Cabarrus County. Most of the family remained in the Cabarrus and Rowan community areas according to Mary Pegram West, the Bost historian. William married 19 January 1762 (Anson County bond) Catherine Goodhart of whose family nothing more has been learned. On August 28, 1762, in Rowan County, William received an Earl Granville grant of land for 565 acres of land on Clarkıs Creek in Lincoln County (now Catawba). The young couple likely moved to their land and at once set about building a house and barns and clearing land to place crops. William added more acreage to his holdings. When his three sons were grown, each was deeded a tract of land cut from the homeplace. Johanes must have taught his sons to read and write as none of them, including William, used an X mark to sign his name. On January 9, 1775, the Rowan County Court appointed William as constable in his area. The Mecklenburg County Court, in January 1777, named him to serve as one of the two administrators to settle his fatherıs estate. And in the official bonds, in loose court papers and records, is recorded his 1782 appointment as deputy Sheriff in Burke County for that year. (Williamıs acreage has always been here in now Catawba County. But because of the countyıs formation and the enactments which changed the Lincoln-Burke County line before itıs settlement, one may find documents on William Bost in all these counties) William and four of his brothers: Elias (1747-1822), John (1743-1794), Jacob (1753-1830) and George (died 1808) served in the Revolutionary War and are listed in the DAR Patriot Index. Johanes Bast is on the approved ancestor list for Daughters of American Colonists. Descendants have the credentials to join SAR, DAR, and DAC. Through research it is known that Williamıs brother, Elias married Katherine, John married Catreena Shuford, daughter of John Shuford of Lincoln, now Catawba County; Jacob married Catherine Cress; George married Hannah Gregory; his brother Leonhardt Bast was born in 1740 but nothing more is known about him. His sister Anna Marie (Mary), married Mark House (Max Haus) and half sister Margaret, married Jacob Faggart, Jr. son of Jacob ³Fegget². Other half sisters were Maria Catherina, Margaretha Barbara, Elizabeth, a daughter (name unknown), Dorothy and Christena. *See below William died in late 1822 as his will was probated in Loncoln County Court January 1823. His widow was alive in 1824 when the estate was settled. In his will he names his wife, Catherine, and their children: Utilla, wife of John Smier; Margaret, wife of Adam Winkler; Magdalena, wife of Andrew Sitz; Catherine, wife of Conrad Bost; Elizabeth, the youngest daughter and sons John, Elias, and William. Graves for William and Catherine have not been been found. It is believed they were buried in Old St. Paulıs Church graveyard where so many Bost kin lie buried. The families of Williamıs children have been folowed. Elizabeth never married. The Adam Winkler family migrated to Kentucky; Andrew Sitz moved his family to Tennessee; John married Alice ? and early in 1817 moved to Tennessee. Catherine (born ca. 1779) married her first cousin, Conrad Bost (ca 1775-ca 1815), son of John and Catreena (Shuford) Bost. Conrad died young leaving five children. They were Joseph, Susannah, Silas, Elizabeth and Jacob Bost. Catherine, who died in 1845, is buried in Old St. Paulıs graveyard. Utilla (1764-1834) married John Smier/Smyer (1760-1846) and resided here in now Catawba County. They became the parents of The North Carolina Smyers and are buried at Old St. Paulıs in unmarked graves. They had six sons and three daughters. John, Daniel, Jacob, Elias, David, George, Sarah, Catherine, and Mary Ann Smyer. Elias Bost (1772-1857) married Mary M. Ikerd (ca. 1775-1841) and they lie buried at Old St. Paulıs. Their nine children are Jonas, Salome, Jonathan, Nancy, Jesse, Mary, Leah, Eli, and William Robert Davidson Bost. William, Jr. (ca. 1775-1840), who married Catherine Ikerd, sister of Mary M., has a tombstone in Old St. Paulıs Cemetery but Catherine has no marked grave there. Catherine was born ca. 1783 according to the 1850 Catawba County census. Her estate was settled in 1857. Their children were a daughter (name unknown), Eliza, Margaret, Daniel, Sarah, Lawson, Mary, Elizabeth, Salena, Rhoda, Jemimah, Jethroe. Descendants of Pioneer William and Catherine Bost are scattered from the Atlantic to the Pacific and many have been prosperous and successful. They are good citizens and church members with many who still cling to the Lutheran faith. There are three old Bost homes still standing in Catawba County. (1) The Elias Bost house is on part of the original land grant to William Bost. Family tradition has it that William and Catherine lived northwest of this house. It was also known as the Ann Bost Place, and after her death, the Charlie Burrus Place. A descendant still resides here. (2) The Jonas Bost home in Newton is being restored by Joe Knox, a descendant. And (3) The Joseph Bost home has been restored and is located near Startown. On October 12, 1975, over two hundred Bost kin gathered at Old St. Paulıs Church for a memorial service honoring William Bost and to dedicate the handsome six foot granite stone in the church yard which gives the names of William, Catherine and their children with a brief account of his life. It was with great love of family that descendants subscribed to this stone. The excess funds from this subscription were donated to Old St. Paulıs Lutheran Church Cemetery Fund. From legal documents, church and family records, the early story of William Bost and his family has been pieced together. I am an eighth generation Bost and descend through Williamıs son Elias. --- Mrs. Gwen Bost Sherrill. *The statement above that William's half-sister Margaret married Jacob Faggart Jr. is in error the dates on their tombstones indicate that the Margaret who marries Jacob was the daughter of Elias, (Williams half-brother). ---James Hill--- Marriage Notes for William Bost and Catherine Goodhart: GROOM: William Bost BRIDE: Catherine Goodhart RECORD TYPE: Marriage Bond DATE: 19 Jan 1762 BONDSMEN: William Williams and John Johnston WITNESSES: Will Reed & Willm Carson COUNTY: Anson SOURCE TYPE: Marriage Bond Children of William Bost and Catherine Goodhart are: i. Mathilda Othello Bost, born Abt. 1764 in Lincoln Co., NC; died 1834 in North Carolina; married John Smyre II May 17, 1785 in Lincoln Co., NC; born June 16, 1752 in Berks Co., PA; died January 08, 1846 in Catawba Co., NC. Notes for John Smyre II: The Schmires emigrated on the ship Neptune into Philadelphia in 1753. ii. Elizabeth Bost, born Abt. 1765 in Never married. iii. John Bost, born Abt. 1766 in Lincoln Co., NC; died Bet. 1838 - 1840 in Warren Co., TN; married (1) Alice Unknown; born Abt. 1788 in North Carolina; died September 1859 in Grundy Co., TN; married (2) Unknown Spouse Abt. 1790 in Lincoln Co., NC. Notes for John Bost: John moved his family from North Carolina to (then) Warren Co., TN, early in 1817 along with other Bost Relatives who probably included several children of John & and Catreena (Shuford) Bost. In the 1820 Census of Warren County, the only Bost listed is David Boss 200011-10010: The following presumed family was suggested by Gene Killian: 1 male, 45/ov--(John Bost age 55) 1 male, 26-44--(David Bost age 26) 1 female, 26-44--(Barbara Killian Bost age 23, wife of David) 1 male, 0-9--(Noah Bost age 10, son of John) 1 male, 0-9--(Jacob A. Bost son of David) 1 female, 0-9--(Barbara Bost age <1, daughter of David) John's wife Alice is missing from this census 1830 Census, Warren Co., TN: 100010001-00010001 1 Male, 60-70 (John) 1 female, 50-60 (Alice) 1 male, 20-30 (Noah) 1 Female 15-20 (Wife of Noah - name unknown) 1 male, 0-5 (John R., son of Noah and unknown) John is listed in the 1838 Warren County Tax List but he is missing from the 1840 census. John's will was settled August 05, 1841, by his son Noah (Warren Co., Will Book 1, p.380). It has been suggested by Gene Killian (descendant of Mary Elizabeth "Polly" Bost, b. 1790/92, NC and Daniel Killian, b. 1790, NC) that John was the son of John and Catreena (Shuford) Bost. He states, "In LincNC, only one John Bost is listed in each census of 1790 through 1810. However, it seems that John 1 Bost of the 1790 LincNC census (Note: John 1 died 1793.) had a son with the same name who was listed in the LincNC 1800-1810 census then moved to Warren Co., TN before 1820. That son was apparently John 2 b. ca. 1765." NOTE: I believe that the statement that John lived in Lincoln (Catawba) County to be in error. William (his half-brother) deeded land from his grants to each of his three sons as they came of age. The John Living in Lincoln Co., NC in 1790 -1800 - 1810 would be John Son of William who married Alice (?) and migrated to Tennessee in 1817. - James Hill Note by Virginia Bost Arnold 8th generation: Gene has worked of his family history for nearly 28 years and his theory could very well be correct. However, I am leaving the parents as previously shown to be William and Catherine (Goodhart) Bost until further research and study can be conducted. Information from Gene Killian: John & Alice raised Mary Elizabeth "Polly" Bost, daughter of John and Catreena (Shuford) Bost. Elizabeth was born about 1790 (Some sources list birth as 1788). As mentioned earlier, her father died aoubt 1793. Her mother died about 1797. Elizabeth married Daniel Killian, Born about 1790, son of Andres Killian Sr. Gene is the gg grandson of Daniel and Elizabeth (Bost) Killian. Alice was living with her son Noah in the 1840 Warren Co. and the 1850 Grundy Co., TN censuses. The 1860 Mortality Schedule for Grundy Co., TN reads "Bost, Allis, age 80, sex -- female, born -- GA, month died -- - Sept. (1859), cause of death -- old age, days ill - - 6 months, notes -- widowed. iv. Margaret Bost, born Abt. 1769 in Rowan Co., NC; died Abt. 1816 in Knottsville, Davies Co., KY; married Adam Winkler 1785 in Burke Co., NC; born July 1770 in Burke Co., NC; died January 23, 1844 in Knottsville, Davies Co., KY. Notes for Adam Winkler: From "Ancestors & Relatives of the family of Alphonse Roscoe Winkler" (Hamilton Co., Ill. Library): Adam's father arrived in Philadelphia, Pa. on ship Neptune on or
