Now, when we
think of the "Big Fork" area of Van Buren County, TN (formerly a
part of White County), we think of the old cemetery by that name. The
early settlers of that area would have thought of the Baptist Church
from which the cemetery received its name and which was located at the
Big Fork Cemetery site. This Primitive Baptist
church was probably constituted in 1808 and may have dissolved by 1856.
don't even know for sure if the Hastons were ever associated with
the Big Fork Church, although evidence seems to point to some
involvement by them in the church:
church was established just shortly after they arrived in the area.
David, and Joseph (and their spouses, we assume) were buried in the
of the Haston "kids" married into Big Fork Baptist Church
certainly lived very close to the Big Fork Church.
