    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.153

      It is interesting to note that the bible record of James M. Darwin and Eliza A. Oakley gives his marriage date as 15 July 1852 but the marriage records of Franklin County indicate that the marriage license was issued on that date by John T. Slatter, J.P., and the marriage took place the day after as I've shown above.

      James is listed as a farmer on the 1860 and 1870 TN census records and the 1880 TN census would suggest that he was known as Matt Darwin. He became a preacher and settled in Decherd. The family remained in Franklin County and can be found on the 1900 and 1910 TN census.
