Darr, James William born 5/15/1891 in either Van Buren Mo or some where in Ky. Father: Darr, Benjamin P. bd 1857, Mother:Darr, Lizzie D. (Short) bd 1883. Brother Darr, Denver bd 1895, sisters: Maud bd 1883 and Vergie bd 1886. I have been trying to find out any info on my father James William but with little luck. I know that they lived in Van Buren for some time and my father left to go into the army at or near the start of WWI. He remained in the army for over 20 years and left in or around 1935. The army record center had a fire and the records were lost. He married my mother in 1936 in Minnesota and moved to California in 1938. I was born in 1939, brother Jerry in 1941 and sister in 1937. He died in 1954 in Los Angeles from lung cancer.
