    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.152

      Robert Darwin was a farmer in Franklin County and is listed on the 1850 TN census with his wife, who is listed as Matilda, and their first two children, Lucy and Thomas.

      I was unable to find the family on the 1860 census and by 1870, Mary is found in Coffee County, TN, remarried to a George Ham and included in the household are Thomas Darwin, now aged 20, and his younger sister, Jennie Darwin, aged 15. There is also a son, George Ham, aged 11, who I would think is Mary's child. The Darwin Record by Emma Lu Darwin notes that Robert Darwin and Mary Knight had four children: Thomas, Matt, Lou and Jennie but fails to show any dates, so I have placed the son Matthew between Thomas and Jennie in the family order and believe that he may have died young as he fails to be listed on the 1870 census.
