    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.145

      John P. Darwin was a farmer and the "Darwin Record" by his granddaughter, Emma Lu Darwin, states that he lived in and about Decherd, Tennessee.

      Emma Lu notes that there was only one child, William, born 13 Dec. 1833, from John's first marriage to Patience Champion and she lived up to the year 1844. The 1850 TN census shows John with his second wife, Caroline, along with the three children to this marriage in addition to William Darwin, who was then aged 17.

      Somehow the census enumerator managed to spell the family name Duwin / Durvin on this census. John's wife, Caroline, died towards the end of the year on 10 Sep. 1850 and John married thirdly Rebecca A. Stroud at the beginning of 1851, and they would have a further ten children.

      The family tradition is that John P. Darwin was a Union sympathizer during the Civil War and that there was a lot of hard feeling in the family and neighbourhood because of that. However, when peace returned to Tennessee in 1865, John would only live another three years and died at Decherd on 12 Nov. 1868. Rebecca became head of household and is shown as Anice Darwin on the 1870 TN census and as Rebecca Darwin on the 1880 TN census, by which time only the three youngest children were still at home with her.
