    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.157

      Peyton Bland Darwin, born 5 Aug. 1834, was the youngest son of the family and was still living in the household of his parents on the 1860 TN census, where he is listed as a farm hand and was probably also helping his parents in the home in their final years.

      During the Civil War, Peyton served as a private in Co. D, 44th Tennessee Infantry Regt. CSA and it was during this period that his father died of old age, 24 May 1862, in his seventy-fifth year. Consequently, Peyton bought the old family home in 1865 in the settlement of William's estate and is shown as a farmer on the census records from 1870 to 1900.

      In turn on his own death, 6 March 1908, the house went to his two surviving children, Frank and Mattie Darwin. Mattie Darwin sold the property in 1929 to Sam Henley, who remained there until 1940, during which time the house was torn down.
