I may have some information. My friend (and former bf) was adopted into that Hastings Family. His mother has an article from the La Crosse Tribune that tells about Hastings Landing. That family was a long line of fishermen. Also liked to drink, according to word of mouth. My friend's father said that as of a few years ago, the stones from the foundation of his grandfathers farm could still be found on what is now one of the islands in the Mississippi. I can invite you to the tree I started if you like.
