Darby married Hannah before 1736, when their oldest son James was born. Darby and Hannah (Richardson) McCarty also had daughters named Hannah (married William Wilson) and Mary (married Paul Froman, Jr.).
"Darby McCarty, late of Bucks Co., Pensa" was in Augusta County, Virginia in 1748.
The following list should be checked against the entries in the Bible of James McCarty (see also Location Notes, below)
Bucks, Philadelphia, and Chester were created in 1682 as original counties of Penn's colony.
The survey showing Darby McCarty in Virginia in 1748 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.
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).
In 1778, Dunmore County (created from Frederick County in 1772) was renamed Shenandoah County.
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.)
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.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Darby by comparing test results with other
carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.

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).
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.
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
