My Websites for Americus

Hastings Research of Don Blauvelt (July 1999)

1871, March -Benton, Co, Arkansas
-Mary S. E. Hastings Jobe is referenced as Mary S.E. hastings, no longer "wife of Americus G. Job". She would have been about 20 at that time.

Mary's father died in January 1861 and the Administrator had yet to complete disposition of the estate when the Civil War erupted. Because civil law was suspended, disposition of his estate was placed on hold until early 1866 but actual court proceedings were not commenced until March 1868. Benton's rebuilt courthouse did not open until late 1867.

Due to the necessity of "catch-up" after the war, extensive filings were involved in the affairs of James Montgomery Hastings' estate. This included repetitive mention of who his children were. Historically, researchers may find the following writing by the Administrator enlightening:

During the 4+ years (1868-1871) it took to finally settle the estate, Mary S.E. Hastings is repeatedly identified as "Mary S .E. Job". In 1870, in a claim filed by the heirs against the Administrator for allowing illegal and unsubstantiated claims to be paid, Mary as a plaintiff heir is identified as "Mary S.E. Job, wife of Americus G. Job." The suit and counter suit apparently ended up before a "Special Judge" in the March 1871 term. At that point, Mary was now identified as "Mary S.E. Hastings." Thus, it would appear that Americus and Mary were no longer husband and wife by March 1871.

According to the Jobe family, Americus married Annie Stinnett in about 1871 in Washington Co, AR and later Nova McKinney. Americus is credited with having five children; i.e., sons Buckner and Mack and daughters Sallie, Jennie and Katie. Also a set of twins who died as infants. Which children were born to which wife is unknown. However, the Jobe genealogy consists of a mainly Presbyterian "clan" that typically had very large individual families. Having only five children was atypical. Whether Mary produced any children with Americus or if she remarried is unknown at this time.

Mary S.E. Hastings was part of the large Hastings clan located generally between Gravette and Gentry in western Benton Co.,. For Mary to have married someone outside of Benton Co., was atypical whereas Americus' associated Jobe clan was solidly to the south in adjoining Washington Co, AR. However, Americus' uncle John Wesley Jobe was a Clergyman who married Miriam Jackson in 1851 in Benton Co, AR and resided with a large family in Benton Co., in 1860 and 1870.
