Since I don't have my papers with me, I may have misspoke about Jane English being the wife of John (although I think that's right).
On Monday, I'll be with the Huxford books and can verify that for you.
I assume you are aware that two consecutive generations of Darseys had the name Joel.There was Joel son of Joseph, R.S., and Joel son of this Joel.
If you don't get to Statesboro before August, that's when I will have access to the storage facility where my great-grandmother's genealogy papers are stored.I plan to move them and re-archive.There are copies (I believe certified) of Joseph Darsey's Revolutionary War papers.
As for your female line, my great-grandmother corresponded with many family reasearchers in Georgia in the 1960s and 1970s, and it is possible that some of these researchers included women from your line.So it will just be necessary to stay in touch so that I don't forget about you.
If the Darsey name does not survive in your area, it remains prolific in other parts of Georgia.I am aware of at least two reunions--one takes place at Dexter the first Sunday in August each year and is mostly descendents of Joseph at the "Old Darsey Meeting House", now a Baptist church.
Not all Georgia Darseys descend from Joseph, but they have an unknown common ancestor, as recent Y-DNA testing has confirmed.That's why I am very interested in documenting the antecedents of Joseph Darcy in Maryland.As you say, the internet is full of fantasy genealogies, but they always either gloss over the actual father-to-son lineage in the seventeenth century, or else present undocumented "ancestors".
Why do you consider this line complicated?It seems as if you know the identities of each of your ancestors, female or male--it's now just a matter of making yourself a file on each one with copies of original documentation and a reference about where you got each document.The Darseys have a fabulous Georgia ancestry.
