George Wesley Hastings was the son of Solomon and Susannah (Starkey) Hastings. Solomon was born along the east coast and had migrated to Ohio, where he married Susannah.
George Wesley Hastings was born 22 August 1845 in Belmont county, Ohio. In 1852, his parents migrated to Illinois from Ohio, to a spot where the village of Baylis now stands.
George Wesley Hastings wed Mary Ann "Polly" Winner on 9 August 1867 in Barry, Pike county, Illinois. They farmed a nice plot of land, and had several children together, including: Mary Etta, Nancy Ellen, James Samuel Olen, Sarah Olive, Charles Wesley, Maggie Mae, John Henry, William, Richard Clarence, John Floyd, Jessie Lelia, and Harry Amos Hastings. Sadly, four of their children preceded them in death: Mary Etta, Richard Clarence, William, and Floyd.
Not long before Christmas in 1903, a tragic house fire cost the family their home, belongings, and the life of their son Richard Clarence. Richard Clarence is buried in the Winner family cemetery, which has since fallen into a state of disrepair. The house fire also caused serious burns to other familly members including George's wife, the children's mother, Mary, and son "Billy."
