My ggg grandmother was Sarah Darrington. She married Duncan Witten Murphy. They had a daughter Anne Darrington Murphy in 1842. I remember that some in my family said that Sarah's brother was a Col John Darrington and that they were from Clarke County. Duncan Witten Murphy, son of John Murphy, fourth governor of Alabama went out to California in the mid 1800's and became a state legislator. He died in 1853. Do you have anything on Sarah?

Hi Matt:

I don't have a child named Sarah as a brother of Robert Darrington. However, there was a Robert Darrington in Clarke Co. Al. and he did marry and have a family. Could she have been a child of his, rather than a sister? Glad to find someone else who is working on the Darrington Family. Charlotte G. Boykin

My great-great grandfather was Robert Darrington James and
his son Frank James. Robert Darrington was married to a Mary who was Scottish and he remarried after she died. I think the family was from Alabama. The link that is being discussed is regarding SC...so any connection?

thanks

Robert Darrrington

Dear Mary:

Am I right in that you are descended from Robert Darrington James and his son Frank James? I am descended from the sister of Robert Darrington James, Mary Darrington James who married Francis Boykin and who lived in Dallas Co. AL. I would love to correspond with you about your James family. Charlotte G. Boykin

Hello My name is Robert Byrne James III, I am the great-grandson of Robert Darrington James, Jr. formerly of Alabama but who later lived and died in San Antonio, TX (where I reside). I believe Robert Darrington James, Jr, was the son of the late Robert Darrington James, Sr. of Clarke County, AL. Would appreciate any help on this and will gladly share what information I have.
