The notes I am writing about were obtained from a book written by, Caroline Darling Klier and Richard C. LeRoy titled "A Glimpse of Yesterday with Jacob Darling and His Family". Records of birth,
death, marriages were obtained from Lawrenceburg Court House, Library, and Census Records. Also information from the Indianapolis, Indiana Historical Library.

Jacob Darling served in the Second Regiment of the Duchess County, New York Militia. His son homas states that his father served five years in the service, but we have been unable to find records
stating this information. Jacob married Sarah Cutler September 30, 1779 at Falmouth, Massachusetts. In the 1790 census we find them in Herbon City, Washington County, New York with three boys and three girls. Later in the 1800 census they had moved on to Jaytown, Essex County, New York, they lived in that area until 1810. Sarah, Jacob's daughter marries a John Palmer and they move to Indiana. Evidently she writes to them about Indiana and the rest of the family decides to move west also.

In November 16, 1816 they stop in Cincinnati, Ohio and Jacob buys 160 acres of land at $2.00 a acre near the town of Manchester, Manchester Township, Dearborn County, Indiana. Jacob Darling made the final payment on his estate October 7, 1818. The home was located on the south side of what is know as Kaiser Drive next to Ralph Emerson's home. It was owned by Alma Lattire and is now a vacant lot, but we was told by residents in the neighborhood that there was a fine brick home there that burnt down several years ago.

We have been unable to find Jacob's grave, but feel he is buried with Sarah, Thomas, and Lorena at the Old Baptist Cemetery at Wrights Corner. (Information from the D.A.R. application of Bernice Fisk
Braun states that they are buried their.)

The Oracle Lawrenceburg, Indiana, February 2, 1822
In Midst of Life We Are In Death
Died-In this town on the first ultimo Jacob Darling, age 71 years.
The circumstances attending the death of this aged man are peculiarly striking and impressive, admonishes all to be prepared to obey the divine injunction, Be ye also ready. Mr. Darling who lived in Manchester, about ten miles distant from this town, arrived here on the 1st of February on horseback. with a number of his friends, and in good health, went to the store of Messrs. Gere and Buell, conversing as freely as usual, when in a moment in the twinkling of an eye he fell upon the floor, a lifeless corpse, and died without a struggle or a groan...
