In Reply to: Jesse B. Darrow 1899 MO, CO, OR by Debra Darrow of 1021

Hi Debra--Your Jesse B. is Jesse Benjamin Darrow. Jesse's father was Adam Benjamin "Bud" Darrow (1852-1936). "Bud" Darrow's father was also Adam Benjamin Darrow, Sr. (1812-1873). Adam Benjamin Darrow, Sr. was the son of Benjamin Darrow (1762-1847). And this is where it gets sticky. As far as I have been able to discern (but I have not been active in the research for several years), there has been no concrete proof of Benjamin's parentage. Some say he is the son of Christopher and Sarah (Gorton) Darrow. Others say he is the son of Christopher and Lucy (Benjamin) Darrow. The second Christopher suggested is possibly the son of Christopher and Sarah (Gorton) Darrow. I have lots of bio on everyone listed above. But you can contact me by regular email to pursue this further. This whole group is from the Tennessee branch of the Darrows, and owes much to the research of Elaine Suits who put out her research back in 1984. Also a lot of information came from Susun Wilkinson, and her work from 1991. Anyway, let me know if you're interested in more info. By the way, according to what I have, would you be Ronald's daughter? Linda
