    • N. Bateman & P. Selby, HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS AND HISTORY OF KENDALL COUNTY, p. 960 (1914), state:
      "George and Helen (Rae) Hastings [were] natives of Scotland, where they married. About 1844 they came to Marshall County, Ill."

      George and Helen Rae Hastings "arrived in America with William age 4, George age 3, and Christena age 6 months, in 1845. D. Gale Hastings, Family History Chart (12 Nov 1995).
    • The 1850 census lists George Hastings, 35, born in Scotland, a farmer, living with his wife "Ellen," 31, also born in Scotland; their son William, 9, born in Scotland, and the following Illinois-born children: George, 7; "Christian" [Christena], 5; Ann, 3; and Ohio-born "Isabella," 1. 1850 U.S. Census, Marshall Cnty, IL (M 432, Roll 120, stamped p. 134 B ).
