Birth: 1790
Death: Apr. 1, 1858
Northumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA

Jacob Bastian was a potter.

From the book "Milton, Pennsylvania, the 19th Century Town on Limestone Run" by Homer F. Folk: On Front or Mill St. (now Arch St.) from Pine Alley to Walnut St. was the pottery of Jacob Bastian. He occupied that site from the late 1820's until his death on April 1, 1858. The pottery was then bought by William Freed and Francis H. Shearer, who operated it until 1865, when they sold it to the German Reformed church.

In 1834, he bought 2 acres, 84 perches in Turbot Twp., which was probably the source of wood for his kiln. The location of the pottery later became the site of the German Reformed Church (formerly part of the Harmony Church) which is now the St. John's United Church of Christ.
