    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 5.142

      Hiram C. Darwin was born 10 March 1846 in Jackson Co., TN, and married there 3 Nov. 1867 Maggie Fox and they are shown on the 1870 TN census with their first child, Charles, and where Hiram's occupation is listed as a farmer.

      By 1874, he had a family of three children and as the youngest son of his parents, Hiram could see no future prospects of remaining in Tennessee and decided to move to Texas, where he had probably had good reports back from his elder brother, Lon H. Darwin, who was familiar with northern Texas.

      Lon was working for Andy Thomas, who had land holdings in both Grayson and Fannin County, so I have to conclude that there was some connection here that influenced Hiram to go to Fannin County in 1874. Hiram with his wife Maggie and family are on the 1880, 1900 and 1910 TX census in Fannin County.
