I have a copy of the DARBY-CHAFER family history written by my great-grandfather, Edwin Cyrus Darby (1852-1940).It is a narrative of his grandfather, Jonathan Darby (1794-1886)and his descendants and lateral lines.
The DARBY & BICKERDYKE families arrived at thePort of New Orleans 20 March 1841 sailing from Liverpool,Eng. The Darby family originally settled in Cincinnati, OH and remained there for several generations. Others are found in surrounding areas including Rising Sun,IN and Kenton Co. KY.
Some of the surnames in this document include :BICKERDYKE, CHAFER, DARBY, FOSTER, HALL, HALLER, JACKSON, LANGLEY, LINSCOTT, PACY, POWERS, SIDEBOTTOM, SPILLMAN, VAN NESS, WAINWRIGHT, and a few others.
If you connect to these people please contact me as I have a tremendous amount of documented information to share.My focus at this time is to verify parents for Jonathan.I have clues, but few facts.
