Widowed by M. T. Manees with children, she married widower John Darnell on 2 Oct 1847 in Jefferson Co. IL and survived him.
The 1850 Jefferson Co. census lists John,41, Mary A. 40(KY), John F. 17, James M. 15, William 19, Matthew 14, ?Denny/Henry? 11, Angelina 6.
At least two of her children later joined the family: Mary Manees bTN (age 18 in 1870) and Matthew Manees bIL (age 13 in 1870).
The 1900 Jefferson Co.IL census lists Mary Darnall (sic) (75 KY) living with son Matthew Manees (44) and grandson Thomas Manees (10). This gives considerable variance to her birthdate. We are using the one given by her in 1850. She is the widow of record in John Darnell's 1875 will in Jefferson County.
John and Mary Darnell may have had one daughter, Elizabeth, b1848? who married Samuel Lampley in 1879.
Several Manees children are buried in Abner Cem. of Jefferson Co. and we have placed her here although no stone is found.
Corrections and clarification are welcome.
John Darnell (1801 - 1875)
