Thanks! I got your post on John J. Darrow, but something caught my attention on a similar first name in the 1860 Census you sent and I did more digging.So now I am more confused.
Walling Worley (Walding Darrow?) is our direct line ancestor and every name born after Nelson Darrow b. 1843 in the 1860 Census have the same first names as Walling Worleys' siblings.James William Worley b June 03, 1815 VA or OH and his wife Thankful Darrow b. January 23, 1818 possibly Clinton Co., Ohio were the parents of the children listed below.I have no idea why they have the surname of their mother and both of their parents were alive in 1860 and they were not living with their parents.James and Thankful did not separate as far as we know.
James William Worley d. January 14, 1903 Warren Co., Ohio and Thankful Darrow d. July 29, 1885 Warren Co., Ohio, possibly Washington Township.Married June 16, 1840, Warren Co., Ohio.I don't know where they are buried.
Afer the info you sent more digging turned up:Thomas Kephart, according to on line info married Caroline Kirk April 25, 1860 Warren Co., OH.I don't know of any connection to our Worley or Darrow lines for Kephart or Kirk.
I have James William Worley's line going back, but nothing on Thankful Darrow parents or siblings.I have researched Darrow families in Clinton Co., Ohio and Warren Co., Ohio but have not been able to make a connection to Thankful Darrow Worley.The only Census I have James William Worley and Thankful Darrow Worley is the 1880 United States Census, Washington Twp., Warren, Ohio Page Number 461D.
