Henry was a farmer, and had worked in the cotton mills. He moved from Orangeburg County, SC, with his family, when his son Allen was 5 years old. They moved because "the water was bad, and people were dying". He was living in Grovetown, Georgia when he had a stroke and died later at University Hospital in Augusta. Cause of death was listed as Cerebral Hemorrhage.
. He was called Bybo by his grandchildren. When he was a young man, he wore two guns, one on each hip. When asked why the Sheriff of their town didn't take his guns away, he just replied quietly, "The Sheriff knew better than to take my guns." To us grandchildren, he was a sweet old man, who loved his horse named Dan, and liked a drank of whiskey now and than.
I do not know why his name is listed as J Henry on his marker instead of Henry James. I do know his son Allen said he put the year of 1886 on the marker because he was not having his father that much older than his mother, who was born in 1890. I suppose Uncle Allen changed the name around also.
He was married to Mrs Addie (Adeline) Lynch Darnell. son: Allen Henry Darnell,and daughter-in-law, Julia Darnell; Grandson: Aubrey Leland

1910: In 1910, Henry lived with his cousin,Levinia Metts Demme and her husband John, and their family on a family farm in Edisto, in Orangeburg County, South Carolina. The census has him listed as a white male, age 22 and born About 1888 in South Carolina. He is single. Others in the house were: John Demme, age 36; and his wife, Levinia Demme, age 36/37. John's children; Dewey Demme, age 10; Shellie Demme, age 8; Ruby Demme, age 6; and Hansel Demme, age 3. I don't know when he went to work for Manuel Lynch on his farm, but According to my grandmother, my grandfather worked for her dad, and lived on their farm before they married.
In 1920, Henry is 30 years old, married, and living in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia. It says he was born in SC, and can read and write. His wife is listed as Adeline Darnell, age 32; son Allen Homer(Should have been Allen Henry), age 8; and son: Amos Darnell, age 7 months.

In 1930, Henry Darnell and his family were living in Blythe, a small town in south east Richmond County, Georgia. They were living next door to Addie's parents: Manuel and Mary Ann Lynch. It says he is a white, male, married, born abt 1878 in SC. Again year and age wrong. Should have been 1883 and age 47. He is listed as a farm Loborer. Wife is Addie Darnell, age 45, (age was really 40). She married Henry when she was 19. Son Allen, age 16; and son Amos, age 10.

Name and date on marker wrong.
Note: I know the marker says J Henry, but he said his name was Henry James. And he was born in 1883, not 1886. This error was made by his son Allen.
