    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.45

      Both George Cowan Darwin Jr. and his wife, Margaret, were born and bred in Jackson Co., TN, and they would both stay there for the remainder of their lives. George lived on his father's plantation and helped with the farming and after the death of his father on 30 July 1853, George inherited the family farm despite being the youngest son and as circumstances would dictate, he in turn would pass the farm on to his youngest son who also happened to be a third George Cowan Darwin.

      A review of the family in July 1853 would show that all of George's brothers were deceased except for the eldest, Richmond, who had left Tennessee some twenty-five years previously and was then living in Louisiana but would return shortly to Jackson Co., TN, to make his home at Butlers Landing. The second eldest brother, Chapman, who I understand became a doctor and practiced medicine in Tennessee, had died at the age of 41 in August 1840, while the third eldest brother, William, had died tragically two years earlier in August 1851 as related in Section 4.40.

      George, like his father before him, made farming a prosperous business and was to raise a family of twelve children. He and his wife, Margaret, are both buried in the Darwin Cemetery alongside George Cowan Darwin Sr. at White's Bend, three miles west of Flynn's Lick, Jackson Co., TN.
