In Reply to: JUST LOOKING FOR KIN by DANIEL W. DARLEY of 170

Daniel, if you are still around Macon, make sure to go by the Mulberry St. Methodist Church and check out the historical marker out front. This church is known as the "Mother Church of Methodism" in Georgia and its first pastor was the Rev. Thomas Darley. Following this influence of Methodism, I am descended through Rev. Darley's son John Wesley Darley, Sr. (a right good Methodist name!), John Wesley Darley, Jr. and Carrie Jane Darley Cook. Since Rev. Darley had over 20 children with two wives, there seem to be a lot of Darleys in South Georgia and probably in South Carolina. The Darleys in Alabama and Florida are probably related also. Make sure you get the book, Your Darley Ancestors. Lot of good history in there. Also, the Mulberry St. Methodist Church has a special room with some of the artifacts that Rev. Darley used. Not only did Rev. Darley help start Methodism in Georgia, he was instrumental in getting the Free Mason movement started in the state and was the first Grand Chaplain of the Masons in Georgia.
