Re: Darnell's in TN, Marshall & Bedford Co.
Here is the information I have been given: Monroe Adolphus Darnell was the son of Joel DARNELL & Amanda Virginia CLAY. Joel died about 1861. He and Amanda had 2 other sons, John Everett DARNELL b. 1860 and John William Rosecrans DARNELL b. 1863. Monroe Adolphus, b. 12-28-1858 m. Mary Kay AKIN, b. March 1859, d. 1944. Their children: James Monroe, b. 1880 m. Della Jane Wooten; John Adams, b. 11-17-1881 in Marshall Co., TN, d. 1947, m. Jennie Mai Sheffield; William Rosencrans, b. August 1883, m. Estella Cathey; Mary DARNELL, b. November 1885; Joseph, b. November 1887; Joel Lauren, b. 1889 and Lena Mabel, b. 1860. After Joel Darnell's death, Amanda Virginia m. Joseph Franklin HASKINS who was the eldest son of my gg-grandfather, Benjamin Alfred Haskins. I have an old photo which pictures Monroe, his wife, Amanda, Joseph, two of their sons and several children, who I am almost positive belong to Monroe. I acquired this info from a descendant of Joseph's. I am currently writing a book about Benjamin Alfred's family, thus my interest in the Darnell family. Hope this helps in your search.
