    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 5.732

      Elnathan Davis Darwin was born 24 Jan. 1867 in York Co., SC, and married 3 April 1894, Alice Rachel Morgan, whose parents had moved from York County to Gowdeysville Twp in Union County, SC, before 1880.

      Elnathan and Alice are listed with their first two children on the 1900 census in Broad River Twp, York Co., SC. In 1910, the family was still living in Broad River Twp and the census is so badly written that it shows Elnathan's name written as Edward D. Darvin, along with his wife who is listed as Rachel A. Darvin and the three younger children, Henry, Jessie and May. There appears to be no further record of their eldest son, Benjamin, who would have been age 15 by 1910 so he must have died young.

      Elnathan was known as Ellie in the family, under which name he is listed on both the 1920 and 1930 census in Cherokee Co., SC. I don't have the date of Ellie's second marriage to Pauline Frye, who was born in N. Carolina and was living with her parents in Cherokee County, SC, but the 1930 SC census shows them living in the household of Pauline's brother, Jessie Lee Frye, along with his wife, Valerie, and their five children. Ellie Darwin died two years later on 15 July 1932 in Gaffney and is buried in the Oakland Cemetery.
