Looking for info on George Darkess and Barbara Brown from Pennsylvania. I think they were born there (possibly Lebonon/Daphine)and later moved to Darke County, Ohio. Children: Absalom B. Darkus (b. 5/6/1824 in Lebanon County, PA and died 5/22/1900 in Indiana), Malinda, Solomon, Diana and Catherine. Absalom is buried in Goshen, Indiana. Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have a Darkes family from Lebanon in my husband's family tree. The oldest ancestor we have is David Darkes, born 1806. Was wondering if there could be some connection. It seems likely. Please message me with any updates. :)

Hi Carol! Yes, these are the same people in our family tree, but unfortunately they are not in my husband's direct line. David and Anna's son Samuel married Adeline Beard who is my husband's third great grandmother's sister. :)
