Death: Aug. 11, 1926

Son of Bryant and Nancy (Harrington) Barlow.

The following biographical information was provided to me on April 4, 2014, by fellow Find A Grave member Larry Crawford.

In the Civil War, Darling enlisted as a Private in Jones County Company B, 7th Battalion, Mississippi Infantry on 3 May 1862. During October 1862, he either joined or was conscripted into Company A, 3rd Battalion, Mississippi Infantry. On 30 November 1862 he was captured at Franklin Tennessee and was sent to Camp Douglas, Illinois as a POW and was paroled on 7 July 1863 after the fall of Vicksburg.
Darling mustered into Company B, 5th USV Infantry -a "Galvanized Yankee"- on 6 April 1865, apparently to get out of the prisoner camp. This was three days before Lee's surrender. His USV service record does not say when, but he was sent to New Mexico territory before mustering out.
On 4 August 1866 he joined the Providence Baptist Church in Perry County (now Forrest County). He was dismissed from the church in April 1874 for abandoning his family and not giving a satisfactory explanation to the membership.
Soldier's Pension Application #41916 was applied for in Houston, Harris County, Texas December 22, 1925 and approved March 26, 1926, dating back to the first.
He died August 11, 1926 in the Jeff Davis Hospital of bladder cancer.
