    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.95

      I believe that as part of their preparation to leave Louisiana for Texas, John and Anne Darwin had their first 2 young children baptised on 12 March 1839 at the Catholic Church of St. Charles Borromeo in Grand Couteau, Louisiana:

      DARWIN, James A. (John & Anne VOTARE) bt. 12 March 1839 age 1 yrs. (GC Ch: v.1 p.155)
      DARWIN, Narcissa (John & Anne VOTARE) bt. 12 March 1839 age 3 yrs. (GC Ch: v.1 p.155)


      On the ensuing 1850 TX census, their daughter Narcissa is shown born in Texas, which obviously is an error. Her brother, James A. Darwin, is not even listed there and may not have survived the journey to Texas. What the 1850 census does show is John and Ann living in Galveston County (Clear Creek), with a family of eight children along with his half-brother, Overton Darwin, now 21 years old and assisting John with the farm work.

      However, in the next few years John decided to move further inland to 'greener pastures' in Brazos County (P.O. Boonville) and in 1860 he is found living with his family next door to daughter, Narcissa, now married to Edward Quinn with four children of her own. I do not have John's death date but his wife, Anne, aged 67, was living with the family of her youngest son, George, in Bell Co., Texas, in 1880.
