1880 Rains Co TX Precinct 4, EJ Darden, born 1838, Georgia, age 42, Atty at Law--father born GA mother born GA; Barbara Darden, wife, born 1859, age 21, born NC, mother born NC; Hughes Darden, son, born 1878, age 2, born TX.
1900 Llano Co TX census, Edmond J. Darden, born abt 1840. Wife, Barbara Allison Darden, probably died prior to census as she (and son) are not listed.In this census, he listed his mother and father as being from Virginia.Where is he buried?Where is Barbara buried?
1910 Tarrant Co TX census, precinct 1, Fort Worth TX, Hughesly or Hughes G Darden, born Aug 1878 age 21, servant, father GA, mother NC---I believe this is Edmond Jo (EJ) and Barbara Eliza Allison Darden's (born 1859 NC) son.This census is probably at a school as people are listed as borders, servants, et al.
Edmond Jo Darden and many Darden kin were in Civil War---many of them died during this war.Very little is know of this Edmond Jo Darden family and I think that is why they are my brick wall to finding my Dardens; my Grandfather, Bedford H. Darden, born 1858 Macon GA, is probably his nephew!After Edmond's wife died in TX, I believe that he helped children in an orphanage--they took the Darden name for their last names--they are listed in a 1900 Waco TX orphanage.
Would like to find his son, Hugh Darden---did he die, etc?, as I can't find him!
