    • Commentary: DWD 5.154

      George Cowan Darwin III was the youngest son of the family, born 18 Oct. 1860, and he would succeed to the family farm after his father's death in 1876.

      He married Mattie Chilcutt on 30 Sep. 1880 and by the 1900 TN census, they are shown with a family of 8 children. Their ninth child, Dero, would be born at the end of 1900, followed by brother Lee in 1902, and sister (Ollie) Margaret Darwin in 1906.

      The family can be found on the 1910 TN census and by 1920, the census shows George, aged 59, and Mattie, aged 54, with only the 4 youngest children still at home.

      George C. Darwin III died 19 June 1930 and Riverside Farm would be taken over by his son, Hugh Martin Darwin, who would continue the family tradition of farming.
