The following submitted by Cindy Walcott:

Thomas Jefferson Hastings died at his home in the west part of this town on Tuesday last, aged 50 years. He had a severe attack of pneumonia and died after an illness of less than one week. Mr.Hastings we believe, was born in Brighton. When seventeen years of age he enlisted as a recruit in the 3rd Vermont Regiment and served till the close of the war. He was always an enthusiastic G.A.R. man and was a member of Masonic Post __ where he had had most of the offices of the Post. He was a man well posted in general lines and took much interest in business affairs of his town. He married Lovila Colburn, who survives him, though in too poor health to admit of having his funeral held at the church. He leaves an adopted son, Willie Holmes, also two brothers, Whitney Hastings of Kansas and Edwin Hastings of Derby, and five sisters: Mrs. Hiram Farmer and Mrs David Arthur or Island Pong, Mrs Langmaid of East Haven, Mrs Wallace Bruce of Charleston and Mrs Jessie Heath of Kansas. The funeral was held on Friday with Reverend Douglas of Barton, assisted by Reverend Vincent of West Glover officiating. There was a large delegation of G.A.R. men from surrounding Posts present, with many neighbors and friends. The house being literally filled. Mr. Hastings was a pleasant man and good citizen. His remains were interred in the Glover village cemetery.
