THE ALABAMA COURIER, Athens, Alabama, January, 1887:
"MARRIED - Last Thursday at the residence of Mr. N. J. Meadows, Mr. Wm. Hastings,
a well known young farmer, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Annie
Meadows. Rev. Mr. Holland tied this silken knot that binds these two loving hearts
as one. May they live long and be prosperous and when the "squals" of life come, if
they do, may they prove a bond to stronger bind these two loving souls."
*The following family History data was handcopied by the Loraine Dodston
Story, a Hasten/Hastings cousin, who generously shared her genealogy records with anyone who asked for it. Ruth Hasteen Walsh was present when Loraine copied this information. Not long after the data was extracted the Bible burned in a housefire.
This Bible contained books found only in Mormon Bibles. It may have been a gift
from members of the Eaves family (cousins and neighbors) who had joined the Mormon movement in Limestone Co., AL.
