    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 5.419

      I was given Banks Bradley Darwin as his full name by his grandson, Roy Wray Darwin of Texas City, and I mention this here because I noted that Banks was referred to as Banks Bradson Darwin on GENFORUM by Linda E. Jordan, which spelling I have now been able to confirm is correct from his death record.

      I showed Banks born 1847 on my family chart, having taken this date from the 1900 TX census where he is shown age 52 and born Oct. 1847. I now believe that this date is in error as Banks was just over age 1 in 1850, where he was listed as the unnamed male baby of Reuben Darwin on the census for St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, so I have shown his correct birth date here as Oct. 1848. This date would agree with his age shown on the census in 1870 (21), 1910 (61), 1920 (71) and 1930 (81).

      Likewise, his wife Mattie was shown age 38 and born March 1862 on the 1900 TX census compared to 1880 (19), 1910 (49), 1920 (59) and 1930 (69) from which I would deduce that she was born March 1861. These census records show that Banks was living in Brazos County, Texas, during the 1860s and 1870s and that after his marriage to Mattie Underwood around 1880, they lived the remainder of their lives in Bell County, Texas, where Banks Darwin was listed as a farmer.
