See the Revisions. There are two possible parents for Joseph Hastings.

Please provide any primary sources that support one set or the other.

yes, I remembered correctly. Here's a link to Randy S's tree on MyHeritage, I would feel comfortable reconciling to that tree

I don't think there's much doubt here: Abigail (Hammond) Hasting's first child was born a bit too soon to make the Puritans comfortable:
