    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.146

      William Powell Darwin was known simply as Powell Darwin and was a farmer in Franklin County, in the vicinity between the towns of Decherd and Cowan in Tennessee. He married 14 Jan. 1839 Nancy Kennerly, who was known as Nicey in the family, and they raised a family of seven children. Nicey is listed on both the 1850 and 1860 TN census and I estimate that she died around 1865. Powell Darwin remarried 18 Feb. 1868, Mary J. Beasley, and they are shown on the 1870 TN census with two children.
