Hastings Family, Lancaster PA, Mid 1700's

My ancestor Patience Hastings was born in 1761 in Lancaster PA. Per her grandfather's will, mentioned in a previous post I made, her mother was Sarah Williams, but her father's name is unknown. Patience's siblings were John, Joel, Hannah, Elizabeth & Rachel. The Williams' lived in Sadsbury Twp, Lancaster County PA. No matter how hard I try, I cant find Patience' s father's name. The Williams' were Quaker, as were the Hastings'. Patience' parents may have been married at a Quaker meeting around 1750 or sometime before 1761. Any help would be great & appreciated.

A question I have about Quaker wills: were the names of sons in law of a Quaker be intentionally omitted for any reason? I ask because I saw such a will & all of the sons in law's names were left out. Only names listed were the children of the one writing the will.
