Elizabeth Fanny Hastings is the daughter of Seymour Hastings. Fanny, as she was known, was born in July 1822 in New York. She died sometime before 1905 in Morris County, Kansas.

On 22 May 1845, she married David Anthony Clabaugh in Hancock County, Ohio. Anthony, as he is known, is the son of Isaac Clabaugh and Margaret Houser. He was born in February 1822 in Licking County, Ohio.

Children of Elizabeth Fanny Hastings and David Anthony Clabaugh:

  1. Angeline M. Clabaugh was born about 1846/1847 in Union, Hancock, Ohio. She died sometime before 1860.
  2. Margaret E. Clabaugh was born in March 1850 in Ohio.
  3. Nelson Seymore Clabaugh was born 8 January 1852 in Ohio.
  4. Hial Sylvester Clabaugh was born about 1854 in Ohio. He died sometime before 1930.
    • About 1906, he married Martha Dora (unknown). Dora, as she is known, was born about 1873 in Oregon.
  5. Albert Henry Clabaugh was born 3 December 1855 in Ohio. He died 1 February 1897 at age 41 in Morris county, Kansas. He is buried in Kelso Cemetery, Kelso, Morris, Kansas.
    • He married Elizabeth. She was born about 1859 in Iowa.
  6. Amy Melissa Clabaugh was born 9 March 1859 in Ohio.
  7. Joel A. Clabaugh was born about 1862 in Ohio. He apparently died before 1900.
    • He married Hulda A. (unknown). She was born about 1861/62.
  8. (unknown) Clabaugh was born and died sometime before 1900.
  9. (unknown) Clabaugh was born and died sometime before 1900.


In the 1900 census (Neosho, Morris, KS. p. 256B), Fanny is reported as having had 9 children, 4 of whom were still living. We only know of 7 children; the other 2 are otherwise unknown.

Angeline does not appear in the 1860 census (Union, Hancock, OH. p. 48). Since only 4 of Fanny's 9 children were still living in 1900, I suspect Angeline was one of the deceased children and that she died before 1860.



  • Marriage from Marriages of Hancock County Ohio.
  • Death is surmised from the fact that her husband is listed as a widower in the 1910 census and is living alone in the home of his daughter, Amy, in 1905.


  • Birth & Death from "Kansas Cemeteries" [978.1 V3f Vol 1] p. 208.
  • Birth and Death from his grave marker.
