    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.155

      George W. Darwin like his siblings grew up in Franklin County, TN, and is shown on the 1850 census still living in his parents household at the age of 20.

      He became a school teacher as indicated on the 1860 census, when he was living in the household of his father-in-law, Sevier Boulton, in Stevenson, Jackson County, AL, and is listed with his wife, Frances, age 21, and their one month old daughter, Susan.

      It has been difficult finding the elusive George and his family on the subsequent census records and fortunately the Darwin Record notes that he and his wife, Fannie, had three children: James, Oscar and Susan.

      At some point, George changed his occupation from school teaching and became a church minister as outlined in an account of his grandson, Luther Hodge, where it notes that George Washington (Uncle Wash) was a Methodist Minister Circuit Rider in TN. He was away from home so much that the family left him and moved to Texas around 1880. When he got old and mentally disturbed he moved to Texas and lived with his daughter Susan and died 1905. This last statement is confirmed by the 1900 census for Robertson County, TX, where Susan Hodge is head of household with six children and her father, George W. Darwin, age 70, is residing with them.
