  •  Notes 
    • We had long assumed, on encountering other researchers' references to a Bible record associated with Mary (Darwin) Hope of Atlanta, that the Darwin-Bland "Bible" Record was indicated. More recently (February 2007), Christopher B. Darwin has pointed out to us that a separate (though clearly related) source appears to be present.

      The "Bible" record associated with Mary Hope Darwin (a South Carolinian granddaughter of John Darwin) has been used in membership applications to the Daughters of the American Revolution, and is included in their library (call reference Georgia DAR GRC Report; s3, v022: bible records (bk.4)), which we have not been able to consult directly. But Christopher B. Darwin has kindly provided the above copy.

      The main block of information on Marriages is very clearly copied from Quarto Page M of the Darwin-Bland "Bible" Record, except for the erroneous insertion of the date for the two Darwin/Powell marriages (miscopied, as Christopher B. Darwin notes, from the wedding date of William Berry and Matilda Darwin, which appears lower on the page).

      It would seem likely that the Darwin-Bland "Bible" Record originally included pages giving the names and birth dates of the balance of John Darwin's children, given here, but that page has been lost. The later death dates provided seems to indicate that the Mary Darwin Hope Bible Record is indeed a continuation of the earlier record, but has introduced a few small errors in copying.
