In Reply to: Wisconsin Darrows of Jer. and Rebecca Darrow by Ric Trexell of 1022

James Darrow (1814-1884), born in Hebron, NY, graduated from Union College and went on to the University of Wisconsin, obtaining a law degree in 1847. The 1850 U.S. Census lists James as a lawyer in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. He married Nellie Cheney, and the couple raised three children in Wisconsin: Florence (1864-1947), Nellie (1868-1903), and Herbert (1872-1917). Nellie and Herbert died in their 30s and 40s, respectively. Florence lived to 83, and had five children, all born in Wisconsin. One of them, James Darrow Cummings, had five children during the 1920s, some of whom, I believe, still live in Wisconsin. A nephew of James Darrow also moved to Black River Falls, WI around 1848: William S. Darrow, born 1838-1917). By the time he was 21 William S. he was in Black River Falls where his Uncle James had settled. William was a Civil War veteran and was wounded in battle. After time in military hospitals William returned to Wisconsin and married Canadian-born Margaret LNU. The couple had one son, Bertie. The 1870 and 1880 Censuses list the family in Albion, Wisconsin. William S. died at a veterans home in Los Angeles in 1917.
