    • The Darby Family of Kanawha County, West Virginia

      Darby: English, Irish. First found in Derbyshire, where they held the family seat, from the name of the
      town Derby, meaning "deer farm".

      James Darby, est DOB 1780; died in 1812-1815.
      James Darby was born around 1780, possibly in Caswell County, NC where he had enlisted in the army.
      He died in the War of 1812 [1812-1815].

      Stephen C. Darby 1804/1805-1880.
      Stephen C. Darby was born in Franklin Co, VA, not far from the West Virginia border.
      His father James died in the War of 1812, leaving him an orphan at the age of 7-15 along with his 3 sisters,
      Margaret, Sally and Judith. The Bedford County [VA] court order dated October 1820 appointed Anthony Wright
      [brother of Stephen Darby's future mother-in-law, Nancy Wright] as guardian of Margaret, Sally, Stephen
      and Judith Darby, orphans of James Darby of Botetourt County, who died in service [5th Regiment, Caswell Co]
      during the War of 1812. Stephen Darby and his wife Sally (Asbury) Darby sold all of their interest in the
      estate of Sally's father, James Asbury, and also all of their interest in their grandfather's estate
      (John D. Wright of Bedford Co, VA, who was the father of Nancy Wright, Sally's mother, and of Anthony Wright,
      who was Stephen Darby's guardian), to Isaac James.
      In 1830, Stephen Darby married Sarah Sally Asbury (born in 1807 in Bedford, VA).
      They had 2 children, Elizabeth Darby (1831) and Gilbert Jackson Darby (1832) while living in Botetourt
      County, VA. Sometime between 1832-1837 they moved to Boone [=Kanawha] County, West Virginia and had 5
      more children: William Wright Darby (1835-7), Linville G. Darby (1843). John H. Darby (1843),
      Philomena Darby (1845) and Mandeville J Darby (1849). Much of the family stayed in Kanawha County,
      WV for several generations working as farmers, coal miners or on the railroad.
