In my earlier posting I mentioned that I am looking for information on the family of Joel Darcey who married Mary Hall on 01-16-1820 in Laurens Co Ga.
Here is a Laurens Co will document which includes a Joel Darcey who may be the same person:
02-06-1810: Principal - William Darcey. Key # 6 page 26 Darcey children. $2000.00 bond with Benjamin Darcey Jr, Benjamin Darcey Sr, David McDaniel, and Andrew Hampton as securities for Benjamin Darcey Jr as guardian of Phereby Darcey, Caty Darcey, Joel Darcey, and Willis Darcey, children of William Darcey. Clerk Amos Love.
Also this one: Principal - Benjamin Darcey. key # 3, p 17. 02-00-1810. Appointed guardian of Phereby Darcey, Willis Darcey, Caty Darcey, William Darcey, and Joel Darcey.
The Joel Darcey mentioned in these documents should be about the right age to be the Joel Darcey who married Mary Hall in 1820. I am trying to identify his parents. I think his father may have been a son of William Darcey and Phereby Pryor who moved from Jefferson Co Ga to Laurens Co. The only information that I have found so far regarding the children of William and Phereby Darcey is that they had a son named James who moved to Liberty/Tattnall Co Ga. Does anyone have information on other children of this couple?
