Mentioned in the Findagrave memorial for their grandson:
Son of Flora (born Sophronia A.) Adams. She claimed his father to be one Edward I. Darling, a brigadier general in the Confederate army, who supposedly died of wounds at Franklin, TN on 29 Nov 1863. She described Edward as the son of C. Irving and Marie Dumas Lafitte Darling of Louisiana, born 12 Dec 1819 in New Iberia, LA, and said that she had married him on 12 Mar 1860 in New York City. As yet, I have found no census records, military records, birth/death records, or any other evidence of the general's existence. He married Susan Juliet Gay Beatrice Klingle, 15 Sep 1886, in Baltimore, MD.
