      Thomas is shown as a farmer on the 1860 TN census in Franklin County (P.O.

He is shown under the name Jefferson Darwin, occupation Preacher, on the 1870 TX census in Fayette County, with a family of seven children and his two eldest sons, William and James, are working as farm hands. By 1900, Thomas, age 73, is listed in the household of his son, James, in Fayette Co., TX, where he died 17 Oct. 1909.
