Hi....I saw you posting sometime ago but due to computer problems, was unable to help. Now, I'm back....
I am connected with the Conrads, Kerns and Hons as allied families through the Sears Families of Rowan County, North Carolina and of Nicholas County, Kentucky. I am one of many descendants of John Sears and his wife, Catherine Conrad.
In my PAF database, I have the following:
1/ William Henry Hastings /b. 12-06-1829 in Indiana. This William is one of the children of Howell Hastings and Edith Edwards, formerly of North Carolina. This William Henry Hastings married Elzira Dearns (probably in Indiana). They had 6 documented children.
2/ You have a Mary Elzira Kern born in 1837 marrying a William Henry Hastings in 1822 in Lawrence County, Indiana.
....Something is out of whack.....
I have an Elzira G. (Mary) Kern born 05-10-1837. I do not have a husband for her yet. She is the daughter of Rev. William Kern (b. 04-07-1791 in North Carolina/d. 09-09-1846 in lawrence County, Indiana) and Susan Jane Sears (b.10-10-1795 in North Carolina/d. 09-13-1882 in Lawrence County, Indiana).
Hope this helps....I have lots more information on these allied families and am getting more all the time.
