Biography

Darby McCarty

Darby was born about 1716 and died after 1787.[1]

Darby married Hannah before 1736, when their oldest son James was born.[1] Darby and Hannah (Richardson) McCarty also had daughters named Hannah (married William Wilson) and Mary (married Paul Froman, Jr.).[2]

"Darby McCarty, late of Bucks Co., Pensa" was in Augusta County, Virginia in 1748.[3]

Children

The following list should be checked against the entries in the Bible of James McCarty[1] (see also Location Notes, below)

Research Notes

Darby is not a son of Timothy McCarty. The name of Darby's father is not known. There is no original source for his father being Timothy.

There is a lot of misinformation about Darby McCarty and his family out there. Anyone interested in finding the truth is welcome to contact me at Mc4570[at]aol.com

Confirmation needed:

  • Birth: 1710, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; 1716[6]
  • Marriage: 4 July 1736, Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania[6][7]
  • Arrival 1760, New York, New York[8]
  • Death in Sand Mountain, Alabama, United States

Location Notes

Bucks, Philadelphia, and Chester were created in 1682 as original counties of Penn's colony.[9]
The survey showing Darby McCarty in Virginia in 1748[3] shows him below the Frederick County/Augusta County line. Those counties were formed from Orange County (1738-1745), with Augusta County to the south of Frederick County.[10]
Washington County was formed from Fincastle County, 1776/77 (Fincastle had been formed from Botetourt County in 1772 & Botetourt had been formed from Augusta County, 1769/70).[10]
In 1778, Dunmore County (created from Frederick County in 1772) was renamed Shenandoah County.[10]

Richardson?

Although DAR names Darby's wife as "Hannah Richardson", this needs to be collaborated. (The DAR online database does not show the source for "Richardson" and her parents are not named.)[2]
As of August 4, 2017, Darby has two wives: Richardson-1168 and Unknown-207852. Many of his children are attached to Richardson as mother, although primary sources showing Richardson to be her maiden name are lacking. However, a profile can only have one mother, and perhaps someone who shares the ancestry attached to Richardson-1168 will have proof.

hmm. Of interest: The survey calls George Neal "late of Shannandoah" ... and the survey is dated 10 March 1747/8. When identifying others' former residences, Mr. Green includes County (Westmoreland County, Bucks County), so we're ok there (Shenandoah County made an appearance in 1778).

I wonder if "Valley" was dropped? From Wikipedia's article on Shenandoah County:

Colonial Governor Gooch formally purchased the entire Shenandoah Valley from the Six Nations of the Iroquois by the Treaty of Lancaster in 1744.

That works well with survey/new settlements in 1748.

Thanks!

P.S. I posted a G2G question for Timothy's profile - see see also https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/436945/sources-other-than-ancestry-father-darby-darby-1716-hannah

Hi! McCarty-313 & McCARTY-159 are obviously intended to represent the same person, so they need to be merged. I've reproposed the merge, but I also protected McCarty-313 because it is in the correct format. That will also prevent Timothy from remaining attached as father (well, should - I've seen PPP not prevent the attachment of a parent also). I've edited the text in McCarty-313 to include a link to him.

So... Please merge.

Thanks!

This profile seems to match McCARTY-159, and a match was proposed in October of 2016. Why aren't the profiles ready to be merged?

McCarty-313 and McCARTY-159 are not ready to be merged because: Before we merge our trees we should compare our two trees as we have some very different information. It would be best to do this by email. My address is Mc4570@aol.com Thank you Mike McCarty
