Derby, Darby, Daby - HELP!!!
Posted by: Dena Date: November 04, 2001 at 12:34:56
  of 669

I am looking for information on my Derby/Darby/Daby family.
I believe my Abigail Derby b. 1789 in Mass. was the sister or cousin of Elisha Derby/Darby/Daby b. March 20, 1790 near Salem, Mass. married Dolly Calkins of Arlington VT. The reason I believe they are related is not only do they share the same last name but their individual families always lived near eachother.
It say's in Elisha's bio. that his parents were Daniel Darby (Captain that led his company in the struggle for independence) & Abigail Sawyer & that his uncle was Elias Haskell Darby who was rendered distinguished service to his country, by lending money to the gov. and aiding in restoring American commerce. He also established an institution for the education of seamen in the U.S. Navy.
Can anybody please help me? I would like to no more about these families so that I can really establish a connection to my Abigail Derby.
My Abigail Derby married Barney Allen abt. 1806 in Mass. Thank you, Dena
