Recollection by Art Darwin (2005) [NB: Art misremembered Don Harris' name as 'Rob Harris']:

"Madge was very different [to Aunt Sallie). A sweet girl married to a philandering blow hard who left the family for long periods seeking gold in Montana. My father and kindly neighbors saw to her bare neccessities. Rob Harris never hit gold and on a return from wherever he stopped at our house before going on to his wife and four offspring. Mother informed him that Madge had hanged herself that morning. Dad did not bother to speak to him that day."

1910 Census - York County: Living in household of brother Elnathan

Recollection by Art Darwin, 2005: "I recall Uncle Wade somewhat. Wade was always sickly and unable to work. Apparently he floated from one relative to another for periods of bed and board. He had a rattling cough and sat inert most of the day. I am sure my mother believed he had tuberculosis; his plates and eating utensils were kept separate from others and were boiled after washing. We were not encouraged to get near him."

Additional Notes

Portraits and biographical sketch found at Bartlett Anderson Fox (1825-1925) by Lora B. Tindall (e-mail address expired):

Had BARTLETT ANDERSON FOX lived seven more months, he would have reached his one-hundredth birthday. He was born 10 November 1825 at Flynn's Lick,Jackson County, TN, and he died 7 May 1925 at Honey Grove, Fannin County, TX.

A story about his ninety-ninth birthday, along with his picture, was published in the Dallas News, Dallas, TX, paper in 1924. At that time, he was called the oldest resident of Fannin County, Texas.

Bart, the son of William and Jane (Birdwell) Fox, married Aletha G. Hale around 1846/47. Aletha was the daughter of Amon and Lockney (Brown) Hale, also of Jackson County, TN. Bart and Lethe Fox became the parents of nine children. On the 1860 Jackson County, TN, census the family was listed as Bartlett, 34; Aletha, 35; Amon, 11; William, 10; Margaret, 9; John Dudley, 7; Joshua, 5; Julia, 3 and Jane, one month. Two other children were born later: Aletha Emma in 1663, and a boy who died young.

Bart and his two oldest sons, Amon and William, served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Bart was a private in Company K, 8th Regiment of Tennessee. He enlisted, 13 July 1861, at Gainesboro, TN. His enlistment papers say he was thirty -six years old, five feet eleven inches tall, with dark complexion, blue eyes, and dark hair. He was given a meddical discharge on 28 February 1862 at Poeataly Station, SC. The reason listed for this discharge said, Inflammation Rhermotis. What that was, I am not sure, but it could not have been too serious, as he lived to such a ripe old age. He was granted a Confederate pension, #17642, in Fannin Co., TX, in 1910.

Their second son, William Fox, returned from the war. But their first son, Amon Fox, did not. The family never knew where or when he died; he just never returned home after the war.

During the Civil War Bart Fox was often fighting around his home area in Tennessee. When possible, he would slip in to see his wife and children. Once when he had been gone only a short time, some Yankee soldiers entered their home. They questioned the family about the father's whereabouts, and left after jerking rings from the fingers of Aletha and her girls. Aletha had been so afraid that one of the younger children would tell that their father had just left, but none did.

When Aletha knew where her husband's detachment would be camping, she sent John or Joshua, who were yet very young boys, on horseback with food for their father. Once when Joshua was stopped by a Yankee patrol, he talked himself clear by telling them that his mother was sending food to a neighbor family.

Bartlett and Aletha Fox, along with their children, left their Jackson County, Tennessee, home after the Civil War to begin a new life in Texas.The trip by wagon was long and perilous, as there were no roads or bridges. Rivers were particularly troublesome since they had to be forded.

Bart bought good farmland near Honey Grove for a dollar an acre. He built a home and began farming. The lumber for their home came from Jefferson City, Missouri. After farming for many years, he gave this up and began a horse and buggy peddler's route.

Bart stocked his wagon with staples for the kitchen, sewing notions,dress material, ribbons, pots and pans, etc. Either weekly or biweekly, he would make his rounds selling his wares. Few paid in cash; most bartered with hens or other farm produce. Bart would then take his gains to the town merchant and restock for his next trip. Often he took orders for delivery the next trip. The children of Bart and Aletha Fox married, but remained in Fannin County.

William (Billy) Fox, Josh Fox, and Emma Slack did venture across the Red River into Oklahoma in later years. But Billy and Emma returned to Fannin County before they died.

William (Billy) Fox married Mahalia Spelce, 27 December 1869, and they had five children: John, Bee, Aletha, Tommy, and Nan.

Margaret Ann [Maggie] Fox married 3 November 1867, Hiram C. Darwin. The Darwins had ten children: Charles, Mary, William, John, Lena, Elizabeth, Lonnie, Bessie, Jessie, and another whose name is unknown.

John Dudley Fox married Harriet Othello Bowman at Dodd City, TX, 17 July 1881. Their children were Dudley, Van, Florence, Othello, Julia, and Emma.

Joshua Hale Fox married Nancy S. Fitzgerald, 14 February 1878, at old Ft Inglish, now Bonham, TX. They had seven children: Della, Virgil, Cora, Audrey, Jay, Joe, and Edith. Joshua married second Frances Sally (Fanny) Goding, 6 September 1906. They had one child, Aletha Lydia Fox.

Julia Fox married Joseph Baldwin in July of 1879. They were parents of Zoe Lottye, Alvin, Luther, Jake, Bart, and Gabriella. This family lived at Windom.

Jane [Jenny] Fox married Augusta (Proctor) Brock. They had one child, Mary, who died soon after birth. They lived at Dodd City.

Aletha Emma Fox married James Slack in October of 1878. They resided at Dial, near Dodd City. They were parents of three sons, William, Bart, and Oliver as well as identical twin daughters Effie and Ethel.

After the children were all grown and married, the old home burned down. Bart built back on the same site and lived there many more years.

It is said that Bart was always very neat in his dress. Each day he wore a clean, starched shirt. Even after passing his ninetieth birthday, Bart, a jolly and companionable person, would challenge friends to footraces.

Aletha died about twenty-eight years before Bart. I've often wondered if all that washing and ironing by hand hastened her death. In his last years, Bart made his home with his daughter, Jenny, and her husband, Proctor Brock. When Jenny became ill, and could no longer see to her father, Bart moved to the home of his daughter, Emma Slack.

On 17 March 1924, while trying to walk on slippery ice, Bart fell and sustained a broken hip. He was confined to his bed for thirteen months before his death. Both he and Aletha are buried at Windom, Texas. Their daughter, Julia, and her husband, Joseph Baldwin, are also buried there.

Biography of William Harrison Darwin (1841-1925)

[Compiled by Keith and Scott Black, and kindly provided by Stephanie Black Regis]

William Harrison Darwin was born March 20, 1841, at Flynn's Lick, Tennessee. He was one of nine children of William Green Darwin and Mary Burke. He grew up in the Jackson County area of Tennessee, where living was said to be hard.

When the War Between the States broke out, being the Southern patriot he was, he enlisted along with his brother John G. Darwin as volunteers in the Tennessee army July 30, 1861. Enlistment was at Livingston, Tennessee. He was assigned to Company G, 25th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry. The 25th Regiment was transferred to the Confederate States, October 1, 1861. He went into Camp of Instruction at Camp Meyers, Tennessee, where he was mustered into Confederate services. He held the rank of Corporal.

He was involved in several small skirmishes with home guards and federal units along the Kentucky line while at Camp Meyers.

His first real battle came January 19, 1862, where the 25th Regiment, under Brigadier General Felix K. Zollicoffer's command, was engaged at the Battle of Fishing Creek, where the25th lost 55 members.

On May 28, 1862, he was involved in the engagement on Farmington Road, Corinth, Mississippi, under the command of Brigadier General Patrick R. Cleburne. He fought at Perryville, Kentucky, October 8, 1862, under the command of Brigidier General Bushrod R. Johnson's Brigade, where the 25th Regiment suffered eight casualties.

William fought and survived the Battles of Murfreesboro and Chickamauga. It is said he marched a total of 555 miles in sixty days.

In May, 1864, his regiment was moved to Richmond, Virginia, where he was involved in engagements at Walthall Junction, Swift Creek, and Drewry's Bluff. He was captured and taken Prisoner of War, June 17, 1864, somewhere in the Petersburg front. There were not more than 20 members remaining in the 25th Regiment.

He was taken to City Point, Maryland, June 24, 1864, then to Point Lookout, Maryland, PoW Camp. On July 23, 1864, he was transferred to Elmira Prison Camp, New York, five miles from the Pennsylvania line.

Elmira was a converted Federal recruit center. It is believed that he was in the sixth group of PoW's to be sent from Point Lookout.

By mid-August, 1864, more than 9,600 PoW's were crowded into a compound that was meant to hold 5,000 prisoners. Because of overcrowding, hunger, extreme winter weather conditions, harsh treatment by guards, and disease, "Elmira was hell," as described by a Texas Confederate soldier. It had a 24 percent mortality rate that could only be compared to the South's Andersonville.

Prisoners underwent a unique indignity when a group of townspeople (Yankees) erected observation platforms outside the prison walls and charged a fee of 15 cents to observe the prisoners as they endured life within the compound.

Because of harsh treatment suffered by Federal prisoners in the South, food rations were deliberately restricted to bread and water causing an epidemic of scurvey. Prisoners were dying of starvation at the rate of twenty-five per day. They were forced to eat rats, apple peelings trampled in the mud and even gnawed at discarded bones when found. A camp surgeon was overheard boasting to have killed more Rebs than any soldier at the front.

Of a total of 12,123 Confederate PoW's at Elmira, 2,963 died. Today, all that remains of Elmira is a well-kept cemetery.

William remained at Elmira until he took oath of allegiance May 15, 1865, when released.

After the war, he went back to Tennessee and married Julia A. Haile, one-half Cherokee Indian, January 9, 1868, in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

They moved to Texas in the fall of 1876, and then to Arkansas in 1878. His family was among the earlier settlers of Wickes, a small south-western town near the Oklahoma line in Arkansas. There he and his family, including his seven children, homesteaded acreage and built the Darwin house one-half mile east of Wickes on Highway 4 in 1883. He was a farmer and owned and operated the Darwin General Store in Wickes until his death on February 22, 1925. He died of cardiac disease at the age of 83. He is buried alongside his wife Julia at Daniels Cemetery, southeast of Wickes. A Confederate Veterans tombstone marks his grave.

The old Darwin home stood until 1990, when it was torn down. An article on the Darwin family and a picture of his home was featured in the Ouchita Mountaineer magazine, Winter, 1996.

DARWIN, 5.139 William Harrison (I1082)

Commentary by Christopher B. Darwin

William Washington Darwin is not found on either the 1830 or 1840 census records and it is thought that he moved to Madison Co., AL, where his son George made his home. However, William also spent some time with his eldest son, James Adams Darwin, after he had made his home in Rhea Co., TN, as testified by a copy of a family letter from son Andrew that was written 28 Feb. 1849. If this letter is correct, then William moved within a year back to his son George, where he is shown aged 81 on 1850 Alabama census in Madison County and resided there for the rest of his life.

Commentary: DWD 1.01

Jane C. Petty was born 8 July 1835 in Benton Co., TN, and migrated with her parents to Utah, arriving in the Salt Lake Valley, on 14 Oct. 1850, and the family was assigned to settle the community south of Salt Lake called Fort Herriman.

While living there, she got acquainted with Joseph Dudley and they were married 18 Nov. 1854 by Jediah M. Grant at Salt Lake City in President Brigham Young's office. After their marriage, they moved to Alpine, Utah Co., and then to Provo, Utah Co. In 1863, they decided to move a little further south to Spanish Fork, Utah Co., where they built a two-room log house and raised their family.
