I am searching for family members of the Petty/Darwin family that came to Texas.
From the James Darwin family line: Sons of Thomas and Jane (Darwin) Petty and Gabriel and Sarah (Darwin) Petty came to Texas.My 3G grandfather Thomas Petty married Jane Darwin (Daug of James and Jane Cowan Darwin) in York Co SC.Thomas's sons that came to Texas:James D. Petty and George Valentine Petty to Navarro Co Tx; John M. Petty to Uphur Co.
Also, their nephew Solomon Petty (1784-1860) married Jerusha Jane Darwin (1794-1873), daug of Wm. W. Darwin. I know that at least the Thomas family from this line came to Texas.
Thomas Petty's cousin Deliah Harrington (1776-1843), daug of Drury Harrington and Rachel Petty, married George Cowan Darwin(1771-1853).I do not know if anyone in this line came to Texas.
In the John Darwin family, Nancy DARWIN (1784-1847), married Jephtha Harrington.I have no info here.
I would be glad to share any info on the descendants of Sarah and Jane.
