    Excerpt from Portraits and Sketches of Heads of State Departments and Members of the Legislature of Pennsylvania

    Stings, of Pennsylvania, was born in Lamar Township, Clinton County, Pa., February 26, 1849, and wasnamed for Rev Daniel Hartman, a minister who for sixty years traveled the circuits of the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Metho dist Episcopal Church. He was the son of William and Sarah Fullerton Hast ings. William Hastings was born in Burncrana, County of Derry, Ireland, in a little low thatched cabin wherein his father, grandfather and great-grandfather were ushered into this world. Sarah Fullerton was a native of Ayreshire, Scotland. The parents of both emi grated to America when quite young and settled near Salona, Clinton County, Pa. William Hastings was the father of nine children, of whom Daniel was the youngest. The latter acquired his early education in the public schools. Before fifteen years old he heard of a school without a teacher and walked through the snow twenty miles to secure it, and was suc cessful. In 1867 he became principal of Bellefonte Academy and super intendent of the public schools of the town. He occupied these positions for seven years, and, after passing creditably through a college course, for three years subsequently was editor of the Bellefonte Republican. He was admitted to practice at the bar of Centre County in 1875 and practiced his profession until 1888, when he associated himself with Governor Beaver and others in the development of the coal fields of northern Cambria Countv. He retired from the coal business nearly two years ago. That General Hastings was not in the War of the Rebellion was not due to a lack of patri otic ardor, but to his extreme youth, he having made several unsuccessful efforts to enroll himself as one of his country's soldiers. In 1877 he entered the National Guard, and, after having filled several positions, in 1887 was appointed Adjutant General of Pennsylvania by Governor Beaver. He was a member of the commission that framed the law for the reorganization of the National Guard. In 1886 he placed General Beaver in nomination for Gov ernor and in 1888 was a delegate-at-large to the Republican National Conven tion and placed John Sherman in nomination for the Presidency in a speech of great force. In 1890 he came within eleven votes of being nominated for Governor and in 1894 was unanimously nominated in response to an over whelming demand from the Republican Party and was elected by a, majority larger than the aggregated majorities received bv all gubernatorial candi dates since the organization of the Republican Party, his majority being 211, 397. It is needless to refer to his grand work after the Johnstown flood, as history is replete with descriptions of it. In 1877 General Hastings was m ried to Miss Jane Armstrong Rankin, daughter of the late James H. Rankin, a leading lawyer at the Bellefonte bar, and they have two daughters.
