    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.32

      From my correspondence with Fred Arrants Darwin, I understand that George, who was born October 8, 1799, had the full name of George Washington Darwin, while his twin brother was named William Washington Darwin. I do not doubt this fact but I must admit that I've never seen their full names printed elsewhere and I thought that I should put it on the record here.

      Alabama territory created by Act of March 3, 1817, became a state two years later and for a short while between 1819 and 1820, Huntsville was the State Capital, so when George W. Darwin bought land north of Huntsville in the early 1820s, he was among the pioneers of the territory in farming the undeveloped land.

      He married Belinda Humphrey on 24 December 1822 in Madison County and Belinda only lived to the age of 31, when she died 13 October 1836, leaving George with a family of five young children. Belinda is buried in the Humphrey-True Cemetery, Madison Co., AL.

      At the beginning of 1838, George married again Susannah True and successfully established himself at his home where he raised a large family, whose descendants still live on the same surrounding lands to this day and maintain the farming tradition.
