I have for some time been looking for the ancestors of Belvin Darlington of Iowa and his father Arthur, also born in Iowa. In case anybody is looking for the same family, here is what I recently found:

Wilson Darlington Centre Twp, Perry County, Pennsylvania, Page No. 436
1840 David Darlington Centre Twp, Perry County, Pennsylvania Roll No. 480, Page No.:264
Willson Darlington, Centre Twp., Perry County, Pennsylvania Roll No. 480 Page No. 266
(no earlier censuses list Darlingtons in Centre Twp)

---------------
David is not listed in 1880 US Census - probably deceased

Wilson Darlington is listed, so Wilson is probably David's brother.

In summary, Arthur E. Darlington's father was William M. Darlington, a Civil War veteran. His Civil War pension gives 1892 as his year of death. W.M. Darlington's father was David Darlington, who had moved his family from Pennsylvania to Iowa in 1851. Samuel Darlington was my Arhur's uncle.
