I have this information from "The Darter Tarter Daughters Family":
Wolford was the youngest of 7 children. His siblings were
Mary Ann m Obed Stevens
Caroline m Sylvester Stevens, b 15 Feb 1827
Emmaline m William Starkey
Benjamin Washington Daughters m Nancy Hancock b 13 Jul 1822 d 9 Jul 1919
Calvin m Lucretia Stevens b 1817 d 12 Jul 1932 (115 years old? I kind of doubt that)
Wyvil 2nd m Jane Sigler
I'm showing Wolford's children from a 2nd marriage (to whom?) having three children as you show, but with slightly different dates:
Edith May b 9 Nov 1877
Francis M. b 28 Nov 1856 d 30 May 1918
There was this little story about Edith:
"Never married. Cashier in a bank at Moores Hill, IN and later in a bank in Dayton, OH. She lived with her widowed sister Carrie D. Breese until Carrie's death, then worked for visiting Nurses."
Wolford's parents were Gillis Daughters and Sarah Messick
"Gillis was born in Sussex County, DE [about 1774 or 1775]. He was a Baptist Preacher since 1815 in the Benson's Old School Baptist Church."
There is another interesting story regarding Gillis' adopted grandson and noted painter, Robert Daughters. Robert reports that his half aunt married Gillis' son Charles, and when he died, she married another son Donald. They both adopted Robert. Robert was still living the last I knew in 2007. He has a painting style that reminds me of Van Gogh.
