For those who are researching the family of Matthew M Darr (1780-1863), here is a brief sketch from the 1990's Jersey Co IL history submission by Lawrence Darr a great-grandson:
Matthew M Darr b 1780 VA d 27 Sep 1863 Jersey Co IL resided in St Louis MO in 1801 resided in Madison Co IL by 1820 in what is now present day Jersey Co IL m Jemima Ennis abt 1821 (d abt 1862) 8 children:Amanda, Emilene, James, Philip, Eleanor, Madison, Andrew and Matthew Jr
Andrew Jackson Darr b 4 Jul 1835 d 2 Feb 1888 m Margaret Brown (d 4 Jul 1903) 6 children:twins Douglas and Edward, Nettie, Ryan, Ef Hardin, Jay and Clarence
Matthew M Darr Jr b 26 Apr 1856 m Lizie Ruth Russell 17 children:George, William, Edwin, Phillip, Lillie Belle, Amanda Wade, Emaline Chappell, Martha Sweeny, Vena Quinn, Delea Bland, Georgia Miller, Octa Langham and Nan Farify (Debbi's note - This is only 13 so guess the others were stillborns or died shortly after birth without being named)
Andrew son's Douglas married Matthew Jr's daughter Lillie Darr.Thus Douglas and Lillie were not only husband and wife but 1st cousins.
Douglas Darr b Jul 1867 d 1916 m Lillie Belle Darr (1865-1936) 8 children:Roy, Matt, Gladys, James, Dordon, Clarence, Albert and a stillborn
Roy Darr m 1911 Ida Lawrence 3 children:Lawrence, Virginia and Donald
Debbi's note:What most Darr family members don't know or either don't want to acknowledge is that Douglas Darr was Lillie Belle Darr's 2nd husband.Her first husband was Archibald Pruitt.Archibald and Lille Belle were married in Jersey Co IL on 3 March 1883.Archibald obtained a divorce from Lillie Belle per Jersey Co IL court records.There were no children to this marriage.I found this while researching my Pruitt family.It appears that even Archibald didn't tell his children by his 2nd wife that he had been married once before.
