    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 3.32


      The Hart Genealogical Collection at York, SC, gives Rachel and John Powell's marriage date as 4 Feb. 1808, which I believe is correct as compared to the Mary Darwin Hope Bible record that shows their marriage as 17 Jan. 1819. This is clearly in error as discussed previously in the wedding date of William Darwin (3.30) & Elizabeth Powell.
