    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 5.727

      John Thomas Darwin was born 18 May 1863 in York Co., SC, and alongside his sister, Ada, was raised in York County, where the family are listed up to the 1880 SC census.

      John decided to follow in his father's footsteps in taking up a career in medicine. He graduated from the University of Maryland on 2 May 1889 and registered to practise medicine in York County on 6 Oct. 1890. On 25 Nov. 1891, John married Mary L. Fleetwood, whose family came from the Armuchee area of Floyd Co., GA, and to this union there were five children. The 1900 SC census shows John and Mary living in Blacksburg, Cherokee County, where they are listed with two children, Robert and Lurline.

      On 8 March 1908, Mary herself died at the age of 38 and the 1910 census shows the family temporarily separated with John's 17 year old son, Robert F. Darwin, boarding close by while the three younger daughters went to stay with their grandfather, George W. Fleetwood, and his family in Rome, Floyd Co., GA. John married secondly, 27 Dec. 1911, Louise M. Sarratt, who was a local girl from the Blacksburg area of Cherokee County, so that by 1920 the SC census for Gaffney shows the family united again with daughters, Lucille and Frances, at home in addition to the three sons from his second marriage.
