Where was Eleazer born? The following is what I have found on Ancestry. Is this the correct person? Where was your ancestor born? This particular person lists that he and his parents were born in Pennsylvania. Robert was born in Ireland. I reread your messages and see that Robert and
Eleazer were brothers. When was Margaret born and where? Who did she marry?

John Hastings was my great-great grandfather. He was born
November 1819 in Ireland according to a notation written on
his cemetery plot paper. He is buried in Uniondale Cemetery. I believe that he and Hope Hastings immigrated from Ireland together on the Ship Henry Pottinger 5 Jul 1849. I have been unable to prove parents or siblings even
though there were many Hastings living at Allegheny City and Pittsburgh.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
