  • Notes 
    • "John Bost, second son of Johannes and Susannah Catharina Bast, was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 23 August 1743 and baptized October 1743 in Williams Township Congregation Lutheran Church. In the fall of 1754 the Bast family migrated to now Cabarrus County, North Carolina settling on Adams Creek in a community of other Germans. Later the name Bast was Anglicized to Bost. Research proves that this is the only Bost family in North Carolina, and all who trace their Bost lineage to North Carolina are descendants of Pioneer Johannes Bast."

      "John married Catreena Shuford who was the daughter of John Shuford of Catawba County. He (John Bost) was a soldier in the American Revolution. His four brothers William, Elias, Jacob and George also had service in the Revolution, and their graves have been so marked."

      "In May 1778, John attended the sale to settle his father's estate and he is listed as an heir. He obtained two land grants. The first was on Adams Creek just south of the Rowan County line, which was later deeded to his son, Conrad. In 1790, he was living on the second grant, not far from his brother William in Catawba County. He and Catreena had ties in both Catawba and Cabarrus counties. Cabarrus Court records establish 1793 as the year of his death, when only fifty years of age. Catreena likely died about 1797/8. Their graves have not been found. Organ Lutheran is the only church with extant records indicating John was a member. Because of the early deaths of John and Catreena,their children were scattered while young."
