Re: i am looking for darst family informatio
Thomas Welch Darst was my great-great grandfather.He had a daughter, Elizabeth Miller Darst (my great-grandmother) who married William Franklin Howard.My grandmother, Margaret Elmira Howard, was their sixth child.She married Frank Goodrich and moved to Chicago.The widow of my dad's first cousin still lives in Pulaski VA, as does her oldest daughter.It is beautiful country there.
You are also related to both my great-great grandmother and my step-great-great grandmother.
I have explored the Pulaski/Dublin area.I have visited the Dublin Cemetary where many of your ancesters are buried.My great-great grandfather is buried in the Miller Cemetary which is not in the greatest shape.I still want to see the Wysor Cemetary, but it is on private property and not easy to find.That is where your great-great-great grandparent Darsts are buried.
I have also visited Lexington VA.How I wish those houses were still in the family!!
That is nice that you have passed a family name on to your son.My second cousin in Roanoke VA middle name is Darst and is also the middle name of one of her sons.
I, too, really appreciate all the work that Jackson Darst put in pulling all this information together.
It was so nice to hear from you.
