    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 3.28

      Nancy was the eldest child in the family of John and Jane (Bland) Darwin and married Jeptha Harrington on 17 January 1800, which was 18 days short of her sixteenth birthday. Some records show her marriage date as the day before which is most likely when the marriage bond was taken out but the Darwin/Bland bible record shows the date Jan 17th 1800 which is what I've indicated.

      Her husband Jeptha, along with his younger sisters Delilah & Charity, moved with his parents Drury and Rachel Harrington from Chatham Co., NC, to Union Co., SC, in 1779 when Jeptha was four years old during the upheaval of the War of Independence of which the children would have been hardly aware. Drury volunteered for service as a soldier throughout the war from 1776 in N. Carolina, as well as re-enlisting again in S. Carolina after his move (Pension Record is filed under S.6979 at the National Archives).

      Jeptha and Nancy migrated to Chambers Co., AL, where they finally settled with their family. After Nancy's death, Jeptha married again late in life to a widow named Mrs. Harriet E. Bozeman (who was the mother of Dr. Nathan Bozeman a celebrated physician in New York) and would live to the age of ninety. He was buried on his plantation in Chambers Co., AL.
