A native Missourian and former area resident, he was known as "Rock House Harry" and would have celebrated his 85th birthday on December 29, 1965. Funeral services on December 28, 1965, were from the Hubbard Mortuary in Bisbee, Arizona and interment was in Memory Gardens with Masonic rites conducted at the grave side.
Mr. Downard was born in Wayne County, Missouri in 1880 and came to Arizona in 1929, residing in Lowell where he was employed by Phelps Dodge Corp. and Shattuck Denn. He retired in 1945. For the past 17 years, Mr. Downard lived with his daughter, Mrs. Irene Sweeney, at Rock House, located along the foothills of Huachuca Mountains.
he was a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge No. 154, A.F.&A.M., Desloge, Missouri. His wife, Mary Jane Downard, died in 1940.

"[Martha Meriwether] seemed to think that if there was not more stir in the family than her husband made all would go to the dogs. She was in a state of restless anxiety... She was afraid the boys would be shot when hunting or drowned when fishing. A stranger, riding up to the house one day, and hearing her crying, "Where is Nick? where is Val?" was greatly distressed, imagining that the Indians had carried off some of the children, and was amusingly relieved to find that her alarm was about her two grown sons, who had not returned to the house at the usual time."

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings,
Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:
It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.

============================================================ [Hastings and Crooker Families of Woolwich, ME.FTW]
HASTINGS Researched by Norma Hastings Brogdon A gift to the Hastings family of today
The name Hastings is of an illustrious family in history. The origin is Danish. In the early days of the British Kingdom the Danes made frequent incursions upon that part of England and Scotland bordering upon the North Sea. It was in one of these incursions that Hastings, a Danish chieftain, may have been captured in the area of Sussex County. This family retained its estates when William the Conqueror came to power in 1066. There were of course several branches of the Hastings family and the branch from which we are descended is what I have traced here.
The town of Hastings in Sussex County is 64 miles from London, England. As early as 700 A.D. it was the residence of the HAESTINGAS tribe, (Haesta's People), a settlement important in the Anglo-Saxon era. The old English word Haest means violence. Near here, the Battle of Hastings was fought in 1066 between the forces of Harold the Saxon and William of Normandy. The ruins of the ancient castle of Hastings still stands by the sea.
Robert Fitz Rail "The Marshall" (grandson of Miles Lord of Venoix and Marshall to the Norman Dukes), was Bailiff of Hastings in Sussex in 1066 and his son was known as William De Hastings, whose descendants assumed the Hastings surname. Two branches of the family of Hastings stem from this first William. First the EARLS of PEMBROKE and second, the EARLS of HUNTINGDON. The Hastings family of Yorkshire and Leicester is one of the oldest in England and one of the most illustrious in its history, holding land from the Crown for centuries and serving as hereditary stewards from the time of William the Conqueror, charged with the administration of the Crown revenues and the King's household.
The powerful Baron, Sir William Hastings, was immortalized by Shakespeare in his play "Richard III". The family held nineteen peerages and was allied by marriage, with the royal families of England, Scotland, France and Spain. Henry, Lord Hastings, Earl of Huntingdon (1536-1595), by virtue of the royal lineage of his mother, Catherine of Huntingdon Pole, Countess of Huntingdon, was a strong and eligible contender for the English Throne.
The Hastings coat of arms: a maunch gules, the maunch (or sleeve) signifying the royal steward. The Latin motto of the Lords Hastings is "IN VERITATE VICTORIA". (Victory lies in the truth).
There were a few key factors that caused so many of our ancestors to leave England. The "Great Migration" of the I 600s was caused.partly by an economic depression and perhaps not coincidentally, by the Puritan movement which developed deep roots in East England and its bordering counties. The Church of England eventually tired of this and helped drive the militants to the new world.
The first Hastings of our line to be born in America was Robert, son of Walter & Sarah Meane Hastings. He was born May 11,1654 in Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts. From Massachusetts, the families over time, moved into New Hampshire and then to Vermont. The story that has been familiar in our present family, is that four Hastings brothers came to America and the brother from whom we are descended, married an Indian girl. As yet I have not proved that.
The HASTINGS FAMILY that I am descendant from is a direct line from THOMAS HASTINGS, my grandfather who emigrated from Glasgow Scotland about 1914 with his wife, Janet Claire Fisher, and eight children (sever were born in Scotland, and my Father, Robert Murray Hastings was born in Canada about 1914. Grandfather and Grandmother, and all children were naturalized citizens in 1923 with naturalization papers and certification documents.

The "Missouri Pioneer's" book, Volume 9, Franklin County, Missouri, Tax list, Missouri Territory, list Ephraim Jamison as living in St. John Township dated 1819.

(I am posting the information as there is no copyright shown on the web site. If there are copyright issues please inform me and I will remove this information.)

JOHN JAMISON PEARCE, a member of the Central Pennsylvania Methodist Episcopal Conference, and a resident of Conneaut, Ohio, was born in Luzerne, Pennsylvania, February 28,1826, son of Rev. Marmaduke and Hannah (Stuart) Pearce, the latter being a descendant of Prince John Alden, who came over in the Mayflower. His paternal ancestor, Edward Pearce, served in the battle of the Boyne.
Rev. Marmaduke Pearce was born in Chester county, Pennsylvania, August 18, 1776, and was a self-educated man. He was inti mately associated with Dr. George Peck (brother of Bishop Jesse T. Peck,) who, in his history of Methodism in the Wyoming valley, says: " Rev. Marmaduke Pearce was the strongest man in the Genesee Conference, although he seldom ever spoke." He was for years a Presiding Elder, and for many years was stationed in Baltimore and other prominent places. He was again and again elected a delegate to the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. After a long and useful life he passed to his reward, his death occurring in Berwick, Columbia county, Pennsylvania, September 11, 1852. His wife was born in 1781, and died at Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, October 21, 1859. She was a member of the church from her early girlhood, and her whole life was characterized by the sweetest of Christian graces. They had three children. Stewart, the oldest, was born November 26, 1820, and died October 13, 1882. He was a man of prominence in his day, was a historian of some note, served two terms in the Legislature of Pennsylvania; was Postmaster of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, eight years, and served as Collector of Tolls on the Pennsylvania Canal and Railroad at Columbia, Pennsylvania, for some time. While occupying the last named position he lost his eyesight, and thereafter used an amanuensis. He accumulated a large fortune, and in his will left $27,000 to various benevolences. He was a believer in the Christian religion and died in that faith. During his life he placed ten or twelve memorial slabs over various points in the Wyoming valley, where, during the Indian history, noted events occurred. It should be here stated that John Jameson, grandfather of our subject, was the last man massacred by the Indians in the Wyoming valley. Stewart Pearce was never married. Cromwell, the second of the family, was born July 1, 1823, and died June 16, 1872. He was a graduate of law; was married November 27, 1861, to Miss Sarah H. Taylor, of Owego, New York, and was a genial, jolly man, kind-hearted and generous, and a favorite with all.
Rev. John J. Pearce is the youngest of the family and the only one left to bear his father's name. He became an itinerant minister when a boy less than eighteen years of age, and in 1844 joined the Baltimore Conference, of which he was a member ten years. His first work was on Lycoming circuit. At that time nearly all ministers of the conference were circuit riders. In 1854 he was elected to the Thirty-fourth Congress, and while a member of that body voted for General N. P. Banks for Speaker; was closely associated with Hon. Joshua R. Giddings, and a great admirer of Benjamin Wade, who was in the Senate at that time.
In 1857, Mr. Pearce was transferred to the Wyoming Conference, and was stationed at Kingston, Pennsylvania; in 1858 he was at Owego, New York; in 1859 to 1861, was Presiding Elder of the Owego District; and from 1862 to 1864, was Presiding Elder of the Honesdale District. In 1865-66, he was in the State of Delaware. He was transferred to the Philadelphia Conference in 1867, and was stationed at Philadelphia, from which place he was sent to Pottsville, where he remained from 1868 to 1870. In 1874 he was transferred to the Central Pennsylvania Conference and stationed at Mulberry Street Church, Williamsport, where he rendered efficient service three years. Then from 1877 until 1880, he was Presiding Elder of the Williamsport District, after which he was stationed at Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, three years, and three years at Lewistown, same State. Since then he has sustained a supernumerary relation to the conference. In all these years he has been an earnest and faithful worker for the Master, and has been the means of accomplishing a vast amount of good. He spent some time in lecturing throughout the State of Pennsylvania upon the vital subjects: "Is there a future retribution? The truthfulness of Christianity," and kindred topics.
Mr. Pearce moved to Conneaut in 1892 and here invested in considerable property, which has rapidly increased in value. He is a great admirer of tine horses, and after his hours of study?for he is a student yet?it is his delight to take a drive behind his prancing steeds. His home surroundings are everything that would indicate culture and refinement.
Mr. Pearce was married February 22,1848, to Miss Elizabeth Dunn, daughter of Washington Dunn, the owner of the Great Island in Clinton county, Pennsylvania, and a sister of Judge William Dunn, a celebrated politician of Pennsylvania, now deceased. Mr. and Mrs. Pearce have four children, namely: Stewart, a railroad employee in Conneaut, married Miss Lide McGinley, and has three children: Stewart, John J. and Donald; Anna M., wife of H. S. Schalk, of Conneaut, general dispatcher on the Nickel Plate Railroad, has two children: John Pearce and Marmaduke; Bessie D., wife of F. A. Howard, a wholesale grocer of Chester, Pennsylvania, has four children: Pearce, Mary, Frederick and Ned; and Grace, a graduate of the Poston School of Oratory, is a noted elocutionist.
Mrs. Pearce and all the children, with one exception, are members of the Methodist Church. Fraternally Mr. Pearce is identified with the Masonic order, and is also a member of the K. of P. In politics, he is a Republican.

Steelville. Crawford County, Missouri was incorporated May 4, 1859 and Robert Preston Jamison was appointed trustee for one year.

Villages of Crawford County, Missouri - STEELVILLE

The first incorporation of Steelville was May 4, 1859, and the county court
upon a petition presented by Silas P. Brickey appointed R. P. Jamison,
Silas P. Brickey, William G. Pomeroy, John Halbert , and William M.
Robinson as trustees for one year or until the next election. Apparently
the town soon became unincorporated for in August 1873 another petition was
submitted for a new incorporation. At this time the petition was presented
by R. W. Dunlap. The incorporation was granted, but again was allowed to
become unincorporated by default.

The Steelville Bank began operations in October 1884, With twelve
Stockholders, namely: W. H. Lee, J. T. Coffee, W. C. Devol, L. H. Scott,
and Thomas Everson, J. D. Taylor, E. A. Bass, M. D. Jamison, G. W. Matlock,
G. W. Saunders, W. H. Ferguson, and Thomas R. Gibson. The directors were H.
Lee, J. T. Coffee, W. C. Devol, W. H. Ferguson and G. W. Matlock, and the
first officers were G. Matlock, president; J. T. Co F Coffee e e, vice

The building constructed for this first bank in Steelville was of brick,
thirty-six by twenty-four feet and today is the same. Later it was used
for the Crawford County Farmers Bank which was liquidated about 1935. In
1931 the cashier was W. F. Arnett, assistant cashiers W. L. Wingo, W. E.
Evans and J. H. McGinnis.

In 1925 this bank was the scene of a very exciting time when bank robbers
made an attempt to rob it. Citizens of the town and the bank officials
were "tipped off" about the plan and most of the robbers were killed in the

434 Thomas Jamison, deceased, was born in Boterout County, Virginia, in 1783, and was the first settler of Cherry Valley, Crawford County, Missouri, which valley he named from a cluster of cherry trees growing there. He was of Scottish descent, and upon reaching manhood married Ruth Edgar, and of their four children Robert P. Jamison represented Crawford County in the Legislature. After the death of his wife, Ruth, Thomas came to Missouri, which was then a territory, crossing the Mississippi River in a canoe. In early life he was a hatter, but after coming to Missouri he engaged in mining in Washington Count, in which county he married Matilda McAdams, a native of Georgia. In 1832 they moved to Crawford County and settled in Cherry Valley, where they spent the remainder of their days. Both were members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Thomas died in 1867, and Matilda died in 1870. Marquis De Lafayette Jamison was born in Washington County, Missouri in 1831, and from the time he was about twelve years old he was the main support of his parents, the father (Thomas) being afflicted with Rheumatism. When about 19 years old he bought a farm, and in 1852 he married Eunice Halbert, Nee, Kinworthy, who was born in Virginia in 1818. After his marriage he removed to his present home, where he owns 700 acres. He is an enterprising farmer and stock raiser, and in politics voter the Democratic ticket.

435 Title: Family History
It is reported that John Jamison came to this country when his father was about twenty years of age. He was the first white man to settle within the limits of what became Little Brittain Township, Pennsylvania. The name of his first wife is unknown. There were twelve children--one of his wife and eleven of the second marriage. The order of their birth is unknown. John left about 1000 acres of land to his twelve children. It is a matter of history that "When it was a contemplation to divide the township Drumore, (from which this was taken, i.e. Little Brittain, and while one proposed one name and another offered another, with respect of considerable difficulty is settling the question,) John Jamison, one of the oldest and most prominent citizens, said to the company, "Most of us came from Great Brittain as our native place. I propose the name of Little Brittain, in memory of our mother country." The name was favorably received and the township, when organized, was named accordingly." reference: The History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
The information is reported to be taken from "The Jamisons in America" by Ephrain Jamison, published by the Rumford Press of Concord, N.H. in 1901 at Boston, Massachusetts.

No. 963 From "The Jameson's in America"

William Jameson, son of William Jameson, was born about 1675, in the vicinity of Leith, county of Edinburgh, Scotland. He married in the county of Antrim, Province of Ulster, Ireland, where he resided for several years, and in 1718 emigrated with his family to New England in America, and settled in Purpooduck, Falmouth, Province of Maine, where he continued to reside to the end of life. Mr. Jameson died after 1734. Mrs. Jameson died after 1728.

Mr. Jameson, when a lad, removed with his parents and their other children from Scotland into Ireland. His father was a rigid Presbyterian, and a zealous supporter of the "Solemn League and Covenant," and shortly after the accession of King James II the persecution of the Covenanter was vigorously renewed, and became so intolerable that, taking his wife and children, he abandoned his home and the scenes in the midst of which his ancestors had dwelt for generations, quit Scotland forever, passed over into Ireland, and settled at length in Omagh, county of Tyrone, province of Ulster. This was about 1685. A little later, in 1689, at the siege of Londondarry, it is said that William Jameson, Sr., was engaged in its defense, and, as tradition has it, served with such gallantry that subsequently he was freed from all taxation by order of King William.

Mr. Jameson, like his father, was evidently a man of courage, enterprise, and strong religious convictions. This appears in the fact of his braving the perils of the ocean with his wife and family to come to America, and on arrival not remaining in Boston but pushing his way along the coast to the eastward, and after much privation and hardship making a settlement as a pioneer in the woods of Maine.

Landing in Falmouth, the first winter was passed in want and suffering hardly second to those of the Pilgrims at Plymouth a hundred years before. But no sooner had he established himself and family and made his home in the new country than he manifested a spirit of active interest and zeal in the church and in civil affairs. His piety and his patriotism are reflected by records now extant. Not only is his name enrolled on the records of the church, but in active service against the Indians on the "Muster-roll of Capt. John Gray and Company, from June 1 to Nov. 30, 1725," appear the the name of William Jameson and his son, Martin Jameson.

Mr. Jameson's brother, John Jameson, and family came with him to America, and lived for a time in Milton, New Boston, Massachusetts, and a few years later settled in Voluntown, Connecticut, of whom and his descendants some account has been given in a previous chapter of this volume (The Jameson's in America).

Robert and Henry Jameson, who came to America and landed about 1708 or later in Philadelphia, were also his brothers.

Mr. Jameson reared a large family of children, some of whom were born in Ireland and some in Falmouth, Maine. Seven of the children were married and had families.

Patience Jameson, the youngest daughter so far as known, receives only the following mention: "Patience Jameson, under care of John and Sarah Libbey united with the Church in Scarboro, Maine, April 17, 1743, and was baptized the same day."

Mr. Jameson appears in certain transactions in land, among which are the following: Jeremiah Jurden, April 1, 1723, sells to William Jameson of the town of Falmouth 50 acres of land in Spurwinch. William Jameson of Falmouth Dec. 25 1733 conveys 60 acres of land in Falmouth Barbary Creek to his son Martin Jameson of Falmouth. William Jameson of Falmouth in 1734 conveys 60 acres of land in Scarborough to his grandson William McKenney.

The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown

Thomas Bellows Wyman, The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown --
In the County of Middlesex and Commonwealth of Massachusetts 1629-1818, 2 vols. (Boston, MA: D. Clapp and Son, 1879 (reprinted by the New England History Press, 1982])
“A little over a hundred years have passed since the first publication of
Thomas Bellows Wyman's The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown in 1879. Its broad scope, the thoroughness of its scholarship and the meticulousness of its detail have made it an indispensable tool for the student of history, and the genealogist alike. It has continuously enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best and most accurate books of its type. Charlestown is particularly fortunate in that almost all of its early records have survived, despite the burning of the town by the British in 1775. What makes The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown superior to most other works of its kind is that the author utilized not only obvious sources of information-town and church records-but other types of documents as well, particularly the deeds, and probate and court files of Middlesex County. For over thirty years Wyman collected material from many sources relating to Charlestown's inhabitants from its earliest settlement to 1818, carefully sifting them for their genealogical value. Correlating the facts from these sources and weighing the evidence in his typically impartial manner, he produced a book whose accuracy has stood up to a century of scrutiny. The result is a monumental genealogical compendium of all families and individuals for nearly the first two centuries of the town's existence. As one of the older settlements in New England, Charlestown is genealogically one of the most significant. Many well established families trace their be­beginnings to Charlestown. From this base people settled all over New England and beyond, and today thousands of Americans can trace lines of ancestry back to its early families. Thus, the book's importance reaches well beyond Charles­town's borders. In addition to being a "parent" town, Charlestown was a major seaport, attracting a constant stream of merchants, mariners and seamen, some of whom intermarried with the local populace and added to the blend of surnames. The most remarkable feature of the book is Wyman's complete lack of discrimination between the distinguished and less distinguished town residents. Most town histories written before or since typically devote most of their space to prominent individuals or families or those of long-standing residence while only mentioning briefly -- or omitting entirely -- the lesser lights. Wyman's method allowed for no such distinction. He was fond of saying that the persons and families eminent in social station or political preferment were sure of recognition in a thousand ways not open to their less fortunate neighbors, and that his aim had been to gather the scattered memorials of the many, rather than to write panegyrics on the few. The book's plan is straightforward, and the alphabetical arrangement of the genealogies does away with the need for a name index. For the larger families an index for the heads of each individual family group is provided at the beginning of the family sketch. Each sketch is divided into two parts: the genealogies and the estates. It is this latter section in which the author makes his most valuable contribution. By making these records readily available, the need to seek out the often inaccessible or deteriorating originals, is eliminated. Besides the genealogies and estates, several other features contribute to the book's usefulness. Among these arc the chronological schedule of conveyances to 1818, a schedule of the ancient colored inhabitants on record prior to 1800, and an 1818 map of the town. Page: p. 418 and p. 548
